Question about Computers & Internet

The pen on my tablet stopped working right. Battery is good and I changed the nib. When I use the pen, my mouse goes to the bottom right corner and won't move.

When the pen is used, my mouse goes to the bottom right corner and won't move. It randomly clicks the start bar without pressure. I did drop it prior to this problem. Do I need to get another pen or can this be fixed?

    I tried it again and now the pen can move around the screen. At first it wasn't responsive to pressure but now it clicks and/or holds things without pressure or the use of the buttons on the side.

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 Tablet pen wont release, it acts like im clicking and holding


I'm just gonna pass on a email from Tech Support I recieved. 

"It sounds as though your pen has pressure in proximity. This is present when the tip sensor of your pen is stuck down causing the pen to think that it’s clicking before it’s even touching anything. What you may want to try would be to remove the nib from the tip end of the pen, it pulls straight out with a pair or tweezers or your teeth, and leave that out overnight with the pen left on its side. Place the nib back in the morning and if the issue persists then you may have a defective pen tip."

The rest consists of personal info and warranty advice so I'll leave it there.

Pen Won't STOP Working


Well... I contacted Wacom support and the guy who write back recomended me to change the nib, to turn 3 times the eraser and to hit 4 times with the pen onto your palm hand...

Of course I didn´t do anything like that, I mean, what´s that??? An spell of some sort (or what)???

But what I did was the following (MAC-OS user):

-Enter to the pen tablet options on your preferences
-Switch the sensitiveness of the pen to the hardest
-Run an app that work´s best with your tablet and make some lines to check if at least in this mode the pen works
-Return to your tablet preferences and adjust at your best

I can´t explain why but my stylus is working fine again...
hope someone find this useful...

Doesn't respond to the pen well


I had the same problem, and my fix was really simple. Did you make sure that your mouse and pen aren't on the tablet at the same time? I took my mouse off the tablet, the pen immediately stopped jumping around.

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.
