I recently got a Galaxy Tab S8+. After applying all the available updates the scribble/writing noise of the S Pen got bugged. It only works in the Handwriting box (when you write in a box and the software converts it to text) or when S Pen to text is in use (only when in given text fields). None of the drawing or note-taking applications produces the sound, regardless of the settings.
Obviously I checked the tables is not in do not disturb mode, silence or vibration only. Additionally, I double-checked the S Pen sound is on.
I'd like to know how to diagnose the problem and, of course, fix it.
Some specific details about my device:
- Google Play system update: July 1, 2022
- Android security patch level: November 1, 2022
- One UI version: 5.0
- Model name: SM-X800
Everything is up to date according to my settings.
Solved! Go to Solution.
This is a bug many others are having. Strangely enough, it happens only with the tablets. I'm pretty sure it's because of the latest updates, when I do 'uninstall updates' to Samsung Notes from settings the sound reappears. Nothing wrong with your tab buddy.
EDIT: Forgot to mention, the sound works when writing on a screenshot, so it's a problem within S Notes.
If anyone is willing to try this version
I tried uninstalling the updates of Samsung Notes application (exclusively) as suggested by @s1mplex and can confirm that the sound of the pen is now back to normal.
Just for the record, the problematic Samsung Notes version is (at least in my case): 4.4.00.64. After uninstalling the updates, it got downdated to 126.96.36.199.
The sound, however, does not work in PENUP nor Noteshelf, even though this bothers me in a lesser way since I dont use these apps that much.
