Tablet stylus interchangeability

Will a Samsung tablet stylus work on other tablets, notably the Toshiba ad HP tablets? I'm a high school teacher in a school that's recently gone to tablet PCs, and the students lose the styli in vast numbers. Replacements are over $38 a pop. I'm looking for a source of cheaper replacement ones.

Looking on e-Bay, most stylus pens are over $30, except for the Samsung ones. I gather that many tablets use Wacom's technology, and that stylus pens from these should be interchangeable in terms of functionality. Are the Samsung ones cheaper because they don't incorporate this technology?

SOURCE: wacom babmboo pen does not work

If the eraser part of your pen works but the business-end doesn't, this fix may be for you. Since the only option is to replace the whole pen, it's worth the try. The interesting part: There is no "live" powered electronics in the pen (it is a simple L-C circuit for you tech-weenies out there) - truly the only way to make the pen not work is to drop it and knock it out of adjustment, use it as a crude paper punch, or get it soaked with some type of fluid such as coffee, beer or soda. The pen is an excellent design is designed to just eventually wear out. My pen is 10 years old and still looks new.

I needed a small jeweler's screwdriver for this fix (1 mm to 1.2 mm width). Carefully remove the rocker switch from the pen; it just pulls out. Don't lose it. See the image below: there is an itsy bitsy slotted screw-like device in the center (it's a tuning capacitor). For its location, follow the white arrow in the picture I've attached. Prior to turning, memorize where the slot-head points (there's a tiny triangle on it), and if possible, use a fine point sharpie to mark the screw before you adjust it. It is not a "screw" per se, but an adjustable capacitor and part of the tuned circuit.

The adjustment: Place the pen as normal on the tablet and "tweak" the capacitor by a small 1/16 or 1/8 turn in either direction until the pen reacts. If it has gotten out of "resonance" this tweak should kick it back in.

Good luck!magriv_0.jpg

Who can fix my visual land internet tablet for cheap there is no operating system and when I do factory reset it tells me there is an E: error .........


If you can't take it back to your dealer, try contacting a computer science teacher at your local high school or community college and see if they can put you in touch with a student who could help you out. That would probably be the cheapest option.

Try a hard reset first:

Ordered the PL800A (looks like it's identical to the UP-7116EA-81A-1) as I saw on a blog that it would work for all HP tablet PC's that have a digitizer. I have a HP Elitebook Revolve 810 G1 which HP says...


HP switch digitizers with the HP Revolve. Previous HP tc4xxx convertible tablets used a Wacom Digitizer, for the Revolve they are using a digitizer manufactured by Atmel. The change hasn't been well received as Atmel's performance has been horrible. If stylus performance is important to you, you would be better served with a different computer I'm sorry to say.

The only easily obtained stylus that is compatible with the Revolve is the HP Executive Pen but you have to be careful because the current HP Executive Pen featured on the HP website is for the G2 Revolve and it won't work with the G1.
The Part Number you need is H4E45AA I've included a link to CDW because their price was much lower than the price shown at Amazon

My toshiba portege m400 when in tablet mode does not change to potrait orientation


If you have used some registry cleaner, it might have erased a registry value. Try to restore the computer to an earlier configuration. If that does not work, you should uninstall the Toshiba Value added package then reinstall it. You can download the Toshiba Value Added Package from Toshiba mobile support,

I installed windows xp on my toshiba tecra m4. How stylus pen works?


Toshiba Tecra M4-S435 is Tablet PC. Windows XP (Profession) has no option of touch screen.
In order to use the feature, you need to install Windows XP Tablet PC Edition or you may install Windows 7, which supports this feature and you would definately be able to use stylus and touch screen, as I have installed Windows 7 and its working fine with all the drivers etc.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Want to use toshiba pen on Dell XT tablet, but not


No, sorry.
The DELL Latitude XT uses digitizer technology from N-trig and the Toshiba uses Wacom technology.
Completely different and non-interchangeable.

The stylus pen works by pressure on the tip. Since the tc1100 uses an active digitizer, as soon as you come within range of the screen, the mouse should move (this is called pen-hover), however, if the tip is stuck upwards it will write or click instead just as if you were touching the screen.

Try carefully pulling out the tip using a needle nose pliers or your fingernails if they're strong, and then reinsert the tip gently. This should un-stick it. If this doesnt work, there may be an internal problem with the stylus.
