Hey, I just got my Z3 tablet LTE and the vibration dont work at all.
I have run the vibration test under diagnostics and it failed. I've have tried to reset to factory settings but it didn't help.
Any tips? or should I clame D.O.A?

If PCC doesn't work, then contact your local Xperia Care
as it could be a hardware issue.

I suggest you take the device back to the place of purchase, especially if the vibrator is not working since the day of purchase.

Actully it did work for 5min or so. I went back to the reseller and I got a new one . And the new tablet z3 has exactly the same problem... At first The vibration works. I turnd The vibration on for The keyboard and whenever I touch the screen. After a couple of minutes the vibration failed agen. And I can't get it working... What is the chance that two different has the same fault? it must be a software problem??
This is my first and last Sony tablet.....

I have a similar problem.
The vibration motor stops working if I type extensively. It starts working after the device has sat around for a while.
It seems like it needs a "cool down period" or something.
I suspect a hardware issue.
Also the vibration motor is very harsh on my device. There is no way to scale it back.
I'm gonna take the device back and exchange it I think...

After a few days testing I found out that my new Z3 tablet has the same problem as yours. When I type extensively the vibrations stop working, but when I turn/tilt the Z3 from "portrait" to "landspace" its working agen. But after a wile its stop working and I have to turn the tablet back to portrait to get it working.
I´ve found out that more people in Sweden has the same problem...
I dont know if it just switching from portrait and landscape and vice versa that fix the problem (software), or if it´s like you said, it just need to rest to work agen.
