Yoga 14 won't detect active pen but can use builtin stylus

2019-05-15, 23:59 PM

As said in the title, my Lenovo active pen doesn't work but my stylus does. 


I'm sure both use the same driver so it must be my pen? Maybe the battery is not in contact.. any ideas?

Hi errorproxye,


Welcome to the Community Forums!


Could you please share us with the 10-digit Machine Type Model (e.g. 20XXXXXXXX) for us to check? As per the ThinkPad Yoga 14 Platform Specifications http://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/Think%20Tablets%20_%20Convertibles/ThinkPad%20Yoga%2014/ThinkPad_Yoga14_Platform_Specifications.pdf, some supports the active pen and some does not.


We'd like to help.
