    I just got a new tablet that has Android 9 on it. I have it set to "mute", yet it still vibrates when it is turned on/off/plugged in/out. There must be some way to disable vibrations completely, otherwise I will have to return it and go back to my old 4.4 tablet. Any kind of shaking feeling bothers me and this is ridiculous that there seems to be no obvious way to turn it off.

    There is no setting in the Accessibility settings as there is supposed to seemingly be.

    If there is nothing under Sounds & Notification, I don’t see what you can do, short of physically disabling the vibrator. https://forums.androidcentral.com/as...community.html

    Welcome to Android Central! Which Samsung tablet? Go to Settings>Sound and Vibration>Vibration Intensity​. Can you turn those all off?

    It is a Samsung Galaxy Tab A (8"). Model SM-T290NZSAXAR.
    I do not have such settings. There is no way I can see to change the intensity.
    I updated it to Android 10 and there is still no such options.

    I am guessing to physically disable it would mean to be opening it up and cutting a wire, or something?

    Hi welcome to AC!

    Can you post a screen shot of the sane menus on your tablet?

    You are not the only person to encounter this. If there is no other fix - and I don’t know whether there is - then yes, disconnecting the vibrator would be the only way. Obviously that would void the warranty, make the device hardly sellable, and possibly do damage, unless done by a repairer.

    It is, but it troubles the OP and I can understand that. One of the first things I disable on phones is haptic feedback. So far, doing it in the conventional way through Settings has always worked, but I’m not sure that I could use a phone on which it could not be disabled at all.

    I provided screen captures of the audio/vibration and accessiblity settings.
    As one can see, there is no setting to control the intensity of the vibration.
    I tried selecting the "vibrate" mode to check if anything would pop underneath it, but there was nothing.
    I also tried the "do not disturb" mode.

    What happens if you tap volume and slide the System slider all the way down , you'll need to take off from silent to adjust then put back .
