Thinkpad Yoga 14: No response to pen -- how to get the pen to work

2015-09-09, 8:50 AM

I purchased a Thinkpad S3 Yoga 14 with pen. I've upgraded to Windows 10 using a clean install. However, nothing happens when I move the pen over the screen.

 

Any suggestions how to get the pen to work?

 

I have of course put the battery in the pen.

In the Control Panel the "Pen and Touch" and "Wacom Pen" options are available.

Device Manager shows no unrecognized devices. Under "Human Interface" it displays the "Wacom Device" which has as status "device is working properly".

So it's like the laptop and pen aren't 'linked'. Should I somehow connect them like you would do for bluetooth devices?

 

Update: I've also installed the Wacom feel driver from http://us.wacom.com/en/feeldriver. This made no difference. Also downloaded the Wacom Hardware Check from the same webpage, which responds with: "You have hardware that is compatible with the Wacom FEEL driver. You can download the latest driver here: http://www.wacom.com/feeldriver".

Next, I installed the WinTab Driver, which also made no difference, from here: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds041384.

Man o man, what a frustrating installation process it has been so far. :womansad:

I've now also reset the laptop back to its factory settings. Also then the laptop doesn't respond to the digitizer.

No idea what to do

Have I broken my digitizer pen (Thinkpad Yoga)?

2015-09-09, 20:47 PM

I have received a digitizer pen with my Thinkpad Yoga. You can screw off one side to put in a battery. But you can also screw off the tip of the pen. After doing the latter a pin/tip of the pen fell out. I placed the pin back on the metalic part of the pen that is pressure sensitive. I screw the top back on.

 

However, now pressure sensitivity is gone. I used to be able to press down the tip of the pen a little bit. This is now no longer possible. I've tried screwing off and on the tip several times, but it has made no difference: the pin/tip of the pen can no longer be flexibly pressed down.

 

What to do? Have I broken the pen (on the second day I own the laptop)?

Hi Marty_

 

Sorry for get back to the first post. If you made a clean install of Windows 10 you need to install all the required drivers.

 

1) I recommend you to use first the "System Update" utility from Lenovo. If you do not have it already installed check it here. Install the BIOS updates and drivers.

 

2) I guess you are using Intel processor. I found sometimes usefull the Intel Driver Update Utility,. to update Intel drivers.

 

3) If you have experience installing drivers on Windows. I found it very usefull to use DriverEasy. It offers good enought (freeware) driver recognition of the things installed on your machine. But please notice that installing the wrong driver may screw things up.

 

Remember that Intel Driver Update Utility and DriverEasy are not supported by Lenovo, this is only a suggestion to try to get the latest driver for your machine. Please use this under your own risk.

 

Regards

Thanks, I've indeed got the pen working. But I hesitate whether I've broken the pen, it doesn't seem to be sensitive anymore to the pressure exercised.
