This software issue is very annoying and only happened recently after the latest update a few days ago to Android 13 ONE UI 5.0. My Previous software version was - 4.4.00.64. I made sure I updated everything, cleared cache of device, app, toggled S-Pen settings, verified the writing sound worked in every other mode like for instance the Samsung Keyboard Text-to-Input you can hear the scribble. Well, I use my Samsung notes multiple times per day, and this has negatively impacted my writing experience.
Fast-forward to today, I receive a new update notification on my S22 Ultra prompting me to check my Tab S8 hoping they resolved the issue. The new software version is 4.4.01.2 – and there is still no sound within Samsung Notes when writing with the S-Pen. Funny, the sound works just fine on my S22 Ultra – so why does the sound not work on my tablet, and they are using the same software?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Latest update to security patch for December 2022 X700OXM3BVL2 brought the sound back
If persists go to the s pen settings and turn on the sounds option in more s pen settings.
If persists maybe the systems sounds have been turned off in the sound settings.
Where is SAMSUNG with the RESOLUTION - smh - this is such an ODD error to miss - and even stranger how the same app version only impacts the TABLET and not the PHONE AND - the sound works everywhere else BUT here. - MY writing has been negatively impacted as a result. Who knew how important the sound was.
Me as well. Everyone should submit an error report,.
Reproduce the issue and then open the Samsung Members app, click on Support (Lower right)->Feedback->Send Error Report, Remember to check on "Send System Data Log"

I was having the same issue tried multiple things but this worked.
S1- Go to Settings-> Apps-> Samsung Notes
S2- Click on 3 dots in the top right corner
S3- Click on uninstall updates.
All this did was uninstall the updates - erased my notes - created a new one - sound was back while writing in the app - however, my notes did not restore - and a perpetual "update to continue using" pop-up continued - so I had to update it again - my notes returned - LOST my favorite pens - had to recreate them -
Oh and no sound again. Samsung needs to get it together and make restoring and syncing more seamless to avoid losing data.
