Thinkpad Pen Pro and Thinkpad Yoga 12

I have a Thinkpad Yoga 12 -- 20DL003AUS.

 

The digitizer/stylus that came with it works fine. However, I wanted a two-button, heavier duty pen so ordered from Lenovo the Thinkpad Pen Pro, listed as compatible on the product page and on the compatibility page.

I have the battery in the right way (positive pointing down.) The pen is completely unresponsive.

 

What am I missing?

Re: Thinkpad Pen Pro and Thinkpad Yoga 12

For the benefit of anyone else researching this topic -- I had to conclude that the Pen Pro was NOT compatible with my 20DL, regardless of what the product page said. Lenovo support and sales were little help with this

 

I may try an older Wacom at some point but for now, I'll use the digitizer that came with the machine.

Re: Thinkpad Pen Pro and Thinkpad Yoga 12

@justjeff is absolutely correct. The active pens DO NOT WORK WITH YOGA 12. The yoga 12 uses a digitizer pen (not an active pen) and unfortunately, I had to go visit Micro Center in another city to find this out. Because Lenovo customer and technical support are 100% explatively clueless on this issue. Way to offer no support for your product Lenovo! This was their support, "Go to Micro Center" maybe they can figure out our products for us.
