Yoga S1 digitizer pen stopped working

2017-10-23, 18:29 PM

Have had a Thinkpad Yoga S1 for several years and last week the pen stopped working.  I reinstalled the drivers and that didn't help.  Yesterday it started working again, but today it stopped again.  I ordered a new digitizer pen thinking it might be the pen, but the new one doesn't work either.  The touchscreen still work fine and I can write with my finger. Any idea what the problem my be?

Hi all

 

I have the same issue... the digitizer pen stopped working some 4 months ago, but everything else is fine. I checked also if the pen was broken, but since I have a 2nd pen, i could exclude that issue...

even after some windows updates, the pen still doesnt work. I have no clue what the hell is going on. 

 

would be enormously thankful for any help!
