ThinkPad yoga 14 and ThinkPad pen pro

I recently purchased a Lenovo Pen Pro (Part number: 4X80H34887) stylus for my ThinkPad Yoga 14 laptop but it does not work when I try to interact with my laptop touchscreen. This particular stylus is listed in the accessories tab so I dont see a reason why it should not work. Has any one else purchased this stylus or know a solution to this problem?

It I my understanding that the Yoga 14 models do not support the Pen. It's frustrating and I disappointing. Return the pen and get a refund. Hopefully we will see a Pen Option.

By the way, the reason the Pen doesn't work has to do with the actual display technology used on the current TP14 Yoga. I took a look, and the pen is still limited to the 12" models.

Re: ThinkPad yoga 14 and ThinkPad pen pro

Ok so for any 1 stumbling on this post and having this same question here is some pen related answers:
Do thinkpad yoga 14 (and 15) laptops have pen or stylus capabilities?
Yes, some models do.
How do i check if my laptop supports pen?
Visit this link  and choose all think PSREFs in a Single for WE or US (based on your location).
Search for your machine type.
Check pen value, if it has pen:none pen pro will not work.

In my opinion this should be clearly listed in lenovo website so a simple user doesnt have to go trough 20 pages of forum just to find this info.

I agree with you. I was just as frustrated. And, now that Win10 embraces the use of Pens, i'm really wanting a 14" Yogga that supports the feature.

The Thinkpad Yoga 14 at Best Buy has the correct screen and supports the active pen.  You have to order the pen.  Only one will do.  You can order from any number of websites, including Lenovo.  Make sure you order only the 4X80H34887

Re: ThinkPad yoga 14 and ThinkPad pen pro

Hi

 

I also have doubts if my Thinkpad Yoga 14 will support a pen. I also have a Thinkpad Yoga 14 from Best Buy (Model 20DM008UUS). I was searching those PDF (Great source) but I was not able to find the 20DM on it.

 

I'm not which pen should work:

- ThinkPad Pen Pro - Part number: 4X80H34887
or
- ThinkPad Yoga Pen - Part number: 4X80F22110

The 20DM is an exclusive model made for BestBuy.  It will NOT show up on the Lenovo sites. 

 

It is easy to confirm that it has the Wacom drivers.  Look at the Control Panel and look for the Wacom Icon.   It will be listed.  When that is confirmed, then order the Lenovo Pen Pro 4X80H34887.

Thanks.

 

It seems to be supported. It has the Wacom icon on the control panel, and a Wacom device is recognized on the "Device Manager".

Do not be fooled by the pen illustration.  I listed  in my previous post the correct penpart number. 

 

You are good to go!

Good day.

Selecting: Search by Machine Type Model from: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/
and entering: 20DM008UUS into the field and tapping Enter yields:

Hope this helps.
