Yoga 14 - Laptop not detecting pen/stylus

2016-08-13, 16:46 PM

Hi there, I have the Best Buy version of the THinkpad Yoga 14. for about 2 weeks now. When I first bought it, I tested it out and the pen works. Now I am in class and I tried using it and the pen is not registering. The touchscreen works (e.g. I can draw in OneNote with my finger). I tried hovering the pen over the screen and it is not registered at all.


I know the pen automatically charges when it is in the holder. So I think it should be fine on battery. 


So I don't know what else to do to get the pen to work??

I have an older TP Yoga 14 that does not have a slot to put the pen. It can be interesting if you can publish the full model number of your Thinkpad.


I'm guessing that the pen has that brass connectors on the top for charging, right? Can you check if they are making contact when you put it on the slot ? I had noticed that some user has pushed it with the finger or even a little paper just to be sure it is making contact and charging.  Just in case check it out to see if it the contacts are touching with the charger slot.


I hope this helps.
