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 Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook t4220 is working fine overall. However my pen which was working fine will not function at all. Please advise on what I should do to ge it working again. Padraic.


Sounds like the pen packed up, they do that but normally become intermittent first. Without a source of another pen to determine the nature of the fault, may I suggest a modest solution.

A pen that will function and also be an acceptable fit in the slot is available on eBay, - See - # 140504970431. A good price, and an exceptional supplier. At least it will confirm a pen or a screen problem.

Should you have an original (or copy), of the System Restore disk, I would appreciate you getting in contact, mine got trashed. Paul W.

My Wacom Bamboo Tablet Pen: only the pen was dropped. Now the eraser works but the pen tip does not. Neither do the buttons. The tablet itself does not pick up the pen tip's presence, but it works perfect...


Try replacing the pen nib. Take out the little nib with a tweezer or something along those lines and replace it with a new one. There should be a few of them when you bought the tablet. Also, try looking at the tablet properties.

How to use the toshiba pen


First, go to your control panel and find the icon for the pen. Next, calibrate the pen and set up how you want it to work. The pen is not for use in every program necessarily but with handwriting recognition activated and a charactes set entered, it will wirk. It is also good for graphics, with a bit of practice. Some units let you erase with the back of the stylus, just like a pencil eraser.

The Pen


I'm not familiar with your laptop but judging from all the pdas I've had with touch screens the pen itself is only a pen, you could basicly use a wooden stick to poke at the screen and it shouldn't make a difference to the computer.

this laptop has a touchscreen If I'm not mistaken and you should be able to use it even with your fingers.

You might have a faulty touchscreen or then you need to install a driver for the screen?

Touch screen not working


Have you tried a new battery in the stylus? They require AAAA size batteries. The first time my pen went out I thought it was the computer not responding, but it turned out to be a dead stylus battery.

Thinkpad tablet pen problem


It could be a problem with the pen but I am not positive. I knew someone who had a problem a little different from this but involving the pen not working how it should. They called the company they got the laptop from (Gateway in their case) and they were sent a new pen for free. Lenovo might do that if it's under warranty or you could buy a new pen. It could be a problem with the drivers, though, in which case I am not entirely sure what to do. Maybe reinstall?

Screen rotates, pen doesn't


Is it maybe possible it is a hardware prob? maybe the directional sensor in the tablet was displadced.

 

BTW i have the same tablet and need an harddrive replacement/upgrade, how did you manage to do that? what kind of drive and where to buy? Viewsonic seems not so eager to help me out with that.

 

Best,
