Vertical cross-section of screen (about 1 inch wide) won't register digitizer pen

I have noticed a few days ago that my tablet won't register my pen at a slightly off-center vertical column of my display (in widescreen orientation), an area about 1 inch wide. Since then, the tablet would intermittently switch between sensing the pen again at this column and back to not sensing. The sensing has not been flickering, leading me to believe that it is not some sort of loose internal connection (but I'm not sure). Touchpad mouse still works. Help would be wonderful!

SOURCE: gateway tablet screen does not respond to pen.

I have a Gateway CX2724 and previously had another Gateway tablet (model I don't remember) but they both look alike and use the same pens. I've had 3 pens and they all periodically stop working. When one stops, I pick up another pen and work with it so that makes me think the problem has more to do with the pen. (They have all died and later come alive.) Sometimes though I can't find the extra pen and have resorted to removing the working pen tip / nib and reinserting it very snugly after wiping off the shaft. The nib is held in merely by friction. You can remove it by pinching its little tip between your fingernails and pulling it straight out. I wipe off the shaft and put it snugly back in. Sometimes I don't take it out, but just press it harder into the pen by pushing it firmly onto a padded surface (so that the tip doesn't deform.) Usually one of these "treatments" works. I know that extra nibs are available with the pen. There must be some reason that the manufacturer thinks they may need to be replaced periodically. But I've never seen any documentation on this.

SOURCE: gateway tablet cx200X, tablet features won't work/ pen etc

All, There is DEFINITELY A PEN IN THE CX2620 stylii. I just replaced mine with a AAAA battery. The old one (which is a AAAA size, you can find these inside 9-volt batteries) had acid buildup on its positive end and that is why the pen went inactive. There is a lot of debate over this pen problem and I guarantee 90% of the time it's related to the battery. I can do a clean replace on anybody's CX2620 pen/stylii with a fresh battery for $10. If interested email me at [email]kevinteman@hotmail.com[/email] . You pay for shipping, your total about $17 or so. I have never done this before but I just replaced mine flawlessly so I can do others. I know there are a lot of dead stylii out there and people don't know what to do, took me a while to figure it out.
Thanks, Kevin Teman [email]kevinteman@hotmail.com[/email]

The pen on my Samsung Galaxy tab 3 only works sporadically. ..... it'll start recognising threw pen when it's about 2 inches away from the tablet...... there are some spots. .....s note mainly. ..... that...


you mean galaxy note 3 .first be sure the pen has a nib in it not a hole where one has fallen out. then it is about 1/16th or so outof the pen and rounded next try replacing the pen nib your phone came with a packet of replacements. they pull out and are snapped back in. Last and for sure , there is actually a battery inside the pen if it is old and weak you will have to get another pen say from ebay (best price) but before you do go to phone store and use one of theirs to test . if you have the same problem and only certain spots do not work on the screen then your digitizer screen is in need of replacement. also another ebay cheapest item. but whatever it turns out to be it is fixable. come back if you need advice will check every couple weeks.
So pen has nib , or nib needs replacement,pen has weak battery and need replacement or digitizer needs replacement. all solutions are under 100 dollars most under 50 . no nibs or bad nibs under 15.

My slate vision tablet pc is having some problems. The screen is not reacting when the pen touches the screen. I went into the control panel seems that everything set up correctly. Could it be the pen that...


Your tablet pc uses the Wacom Digitizer so the pen does not use a battery. It is possible that it could be the pen or the screen. It works with electromagnetic resonance technology and the screen produces this signal that the pen grabs, converts, and returns to the screen without batteries. The pen does contain compenents that can fail but so does the screen. You could try buying a replacement pen for around $20 dollars and see if that works. Worst case you would be out $20. If you had another tablet PC that uses a Wacom screen you could try the pen with that one or test the other pen with yours.

I have a dead band on the screen of my tablet that will not respond to my pen


A common problem with the 1200/1300 models apparently. This can be resolved temporarily by rubbing your thumbs (a little pressure) along the bezel/screen edges at the sides of the dead band to re-establish edge connector contacts.
I have 2 such dead bands (1 vertical & 1 horizontal), this technique works on one of them but not the other, still looking for a permanent solution, have tried Motion but they state that they no longer support this model but seem reluctant to offer any info for a home fixer. Any info anyone.

Pen not detected on especific zones of display


it's a digitizer (hardware part of LCD screen) problem, U can try to buy that part and replace it or just squeeze a little bit LCD screen on the edges around (don't squeeze the screen itself but just black plastic frame around the screen) - it helped my Toshiba for a while :)

Tablet PC 2005 Input Panel won't work.


Are you pressing down firmly enough? If not, sounds like the digitizer may have a problem... The digitizer is the layer in front of the lcd, it's job is to pick up the signal from your pen and send it to the motherboard. The motherboard should have two connections to the screen, one to the lcd itself and another to the digitizer. If you remove the screws on the bottom of the tablet you can take off the keyboard and see if both are connected right.
