Re: thinkpad yoga s1 pro pen



I have the Thinkpad Pen Pro, but on a Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 14.

- Here it also a nice tip about pens that is good to read .


What I know is that there are some Thinkpads that cames with touch screen, but it does not support pen. Please share your full model number of your Thinkpad Y S1 (it is a long number like 20DM008UUS ) to check on the PSREF site.


If on that site your model says "Active Pen" we are in good track.

After that I would check:

1) The battery of the pen

2) That Windows has an updated Wacom driver so it can recognize the pen.


Please let me know if you got any progress.

Re: thinkpad yoga s1 pro pen

Hi, first thanks so much for replying,
I've checked the link in top which shows what types of pen supports, and my laptop is listed there,

i searched the psref for my model name didnt' find it
mine is "20CD00DMAD" it had it's digitizer pen.
but i read on the shop that it also supports thinkpad pen pro
my laptop is manufactured in jan/2015 as per and older announcement that 2015 thinkpads will support the ThinkPad pen pro.
let me know if you need any extra info . thanks again for your help

Re: thinkpad yoga s1 pro pen

I have the S12 Yoga 12 and that pen doesn't work on mine. Then again my MTM is 20DK not 20CD so I'm unsure. 


Do you have a little 'garage' hole in the front right side of your laptop where the pen is supposed to sit in? If so, you're probably looking for Manufacturer part number 4X80F22110 for the Digitizer pen (curved back) or Active pen (Flat back) but the Digitizer pen should work for the Yoga 12 S1 and also sit perfectly in the docking hole for safe keeping.


Hope that helps!
