Yea I googled it already

2020-05-28, 20:28 PM

So there are a few issues with this C-940 I just got but somehow I still ordered the  730 for my wifie  last week.   


I guess replacing TWO 

older Lenovos that lasted several years  

was enough to get me 


I'm not posting with a specific rant today  ( although I assuredly could)   I just wanted to know if anyone could please

educate me on why I would ever need to replace the pen tip on a active pen two 


do the like wear out or something  ?   It just didn't seem logical 


So my internet search returns how to  but no why   I want to know why would I EVER need to change the pen tip please 


Thank you

Hi Cprogrammer,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


From the same description of folks on how their pen tip broke shows several reasons.


Some accidentally drops it while others due to the heaviness of handwriting that places the stress point on the area of the tip to break specially those slanted penmanship.


Th plastic nibs are not as hard as metal tip to avoid scratching the screen but enough to activate the contact points on the screen.


I hope this helps answer your query.

You could share your issues with your C940 and see if we here can help. And as an fyi, my Surface Pen's tip on two different SP's broke, so saying it like Lenovo's integrated pen is the only one which suffers from this isn't really that accurate. Maybe buy a AES pen that has a bigger plastic tip like the Spectre has?
