sergio cortez, what exactly do you mean when you say "it works fine from setting " Does that mean you had the vibrator working?

Hi sergio,

For sure, it could be a motherboard problem. However, I would first check on the two pads of the motherboard on which the two vibrator pins are pushed when the motherboard is secured.

Use this teardown guide and take a closer look at step 12. You find the two pads for the vibrator motor to the right of the notch at the buttom of the picture. Is there anything unusual or strange?
