S Pen for my Samsung Note 3 stopped working how can I fix it


Samsung Galaxy Note 3: S Pen stopped working on screen:

Hello. The S Pen is not powered by a battery per se. The screen on your phone generates a magnetic field. There's a coil inside the S Pen that captures energy from the field to power the pen.

1. Question are your S Pen options turned off?
Settings>Controls>S Pen>

turn on Direct Pen Input
turn on Air Command
turn on Air View
etc..

2. it could be the pen tip that is worn out and needs to be changed. Check the tip by pressing it into the pen with your finger.. if you feel the tip going into the pen too far, it's probably the tip that is broken or worn out. Some customers say buying new tips is too much trouble, and getting a new OEM Samsung S Pen made for your Note 3 is a safer option.

3. it could be the wacom digitizer screen that is having problems on your phone and needs to be fixed. If you had fixed the screen prior, it could mean the person who installed the replacement screen could have did a bad job.

4. if you are using a magnet closure case, try taking it off and then using your S Pen. Because the external case magnet can interrupt the magnetic field the S Pen uses for power rendering it useless, until you remove the magnetic closing case.. and then all should be well again.

5. You can do tests on Note 3's that are not carrier locked by dialing *#0*# (this is not a solution but it can help eliminate possibilities)

DIAGNOSTIC TEST your Pen for Samsung Galaxy Note 3

6. If you bought an Aftermarket knockoff S Pen, that's probably the problem right there. A lot of non OEM Samsung S Pen's have their own issues and work for only some things.

7. You can try fixing the sensitivity of the S Pen



8. Buy an original Samsung Galaxy S Pen. A Note 1, 2, 4, or Note 5 S Pen will work for your Note 3, but it may not fit inside the Note 3's internal compartment/holder. You can try buying a used one to save money, but be aware that you might have to change the tip

I recently bought a tablet, the cover I bought for it has a magnetic closure, could the magnets harm the tablet in any way. Thank you


The cover you bought has very little chance of damaging your tablet unless it has sharp edges that would scratch the finish.
Most tablets use solid state drives to store the information, so magnets do not pose a threat to their functioning.

Magnets can even be used in close proximity to drives that use magnetic medium (like every disk drive from ten years ago) without much chance of damage. In fact, those drives have what are probably the strongest magnets you would have in your house INSIDE THEIR CASES, but it does not harm them.

Have no fear.

Does magnetic case affect my phones screen..?


In some cases yes. It all depends on the type of cover bought for your device. If a cheap one then more than likely it will affect your screen.

If there is a soft cussion behind the magnet that touches your screen, there will be no problem with the case.

Hope this helps

LG Xenon keypad slid open will not turn horizontal on the screen


I read that you can rub a magnet on the backside of the slider and it makes the screen turn portrait and horizontal - you can see that when you rub the magnet on the backside. I just rubbed the magnet with the slider open on the horizontal side (only the right side) - if you rub the left side it makes it portrait. I did that a few times and my phone turns horizontal now when I open the keypad slider. It appears to have worked doing this at this point.

Screen wont rotate on my lg xenon when i slide out the keyboard


I just got my phone today and had the same problem. I figured that on the way over, something magnetic messed up the polarity of the magnet that snaps the slider back into place. It's used to sense the orientation of the phone so that it can rotate the screen.

All I did was take a regular magnet, slide out the slider and run/rub the magnet over the back of the slider...watch the screen; it'll magically rotate and right itself. Very cool. Physics once again saves the day:D

8525 Keeps going from Landscape to portrait for no reason


the switch is actually caused by a magnet, automatic switching can be caused by the sliding screen becoming loose. one of the most common causes of the screen auto-switching is using a phone holder with a magnetic flap like many new holders have instead of a velcro flap.

maybe this is happening to you?

Cingular 8525 - white screen


I believe I've figured out what caused my white screen problem. I finally broke down and purchased a nice holster for my 8525. It had a magnetic catch to keep it closed. Within a couple of days I experienced my first white screen. I thought that was pretty wierd, but thought it must just need to be re-booted. Later that night the same thing happened. Throughout the weekend it happened many more times. I got on the internet to see if anyone else was having the same problem...OMG. In site after site the same thing; my 8525 has developed a white screen. I came across one where the writer mentioned that he had just purchased a case with a magnetic closure. I took mine out of the case I'd just purchased, changed the battery, and turned it back on. I have not had a white screen since. I'm back to a velcro closure forever! Good luck.
