I find that that the problem maybe the pen or nib. I tried removing and re-inserting the nib into the pen but not all the way in. It then works well for a time.

Re: Active Pen 2 intermittently stops working with yoga 920

I made an account just to comment here. I have the exact same issue.

 

I've found some stuff out:

 

a) It's very likely a software issue. The pen works perfectly on OneNote without ever disconnecting, while I have issues on other apps (Krita for example).

 

b) An ok solution seems to be to bind one of the buttons to OneNote and just open it with that button when the pen dcs as it seems to reconnect after that. Obviously that's an hassle and not much of a solution, because sometimes the pen dcs every 20 secs.

 

It really annoys how no one from Lenovo has said anything about this, I wonder how many pages it will take.

Re: Active Pen 2 intermittently stops working with yoga 920

So I guess we'll need to fill a lot of these forum-pages in order to achieve any progress in this issue!

 

My experience so far:

I bought a Lenovo Yoga 720 and I got a Lenovo active pen 2 with it and I got the same problems with it: When  I draw lines in Photoshop or Sketchbook, the lines suddenly cancel in the midst of the line if I am too soft (although touching the screen). I first wasn't sure if this may be intended but after some time I realized that the pen/yoga shouldn't behave that way.

 

And then I got another interesting information:

Using the active pen 1 I got from an earlier yoga 520 at the new Yoga 720 worked perfectly! The lines were fluid and they didn't break away inmidst of drawing them! So although the active pen 1 is inferior in weight, handling & feeling (active pen 2 feels more like working on material rather than a screen), I will have to use it until this is solved...

 

PS: I tested Onenote, too and it felt better with the active pen 2 but it still wasn't as good as active pen 1.

 

PPS: Are there any good nibs for the active pens out there?

 

@Lenovo: YOU'VE GOT TO  WORK ON THIS, THIS IS ONE OF YOUR TOP-FEATURES!

Hi, I couldn’t find a solution in replies. Has anybody figure out what is the problem and how to solve it?

For me clicking the head button reactive the pen but it is very annoying to click ever few seconds.

It seems the problem appear when you pair the pen via Bluetooth. I unpaired the bluetooth and the problem disappeared. I removed the small batteries for bluetooth module and now it works fine.

Oh man, what a dumb mistake I did. Your comment made me check my bluetooth-batteries. I realized, I never put them in. Am I an idiot? I guess so. I checked my "Active Pen 2" - packaging and found the two small batteries. I searched for the manual and put them in:

Active Pen 2 Website:

https://support.lenovo.com/de/de/accessories/acc100370

Quick Start Guide:

https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/options/lenovo_active_pen2_qsg_v2.0_201705.pdf

 

Activated Bluetooth by clicking 3 seconds on the backbutton of the active pen 2 & enabling bluetooth on the laptop aaaand it works.

 

I don't know if the others also forgot these small bluetooth-batteries (beside the normal AAAA-Battery) but maybe this is it!

Removing/ changimng the batteries never solved the intermittnat issue. I dont know how this thread is marked solved. I have never been able to just write in one note.
