Broken digitizer pen!

2010-09-01, 12:20 PM



I own a x61tablet with 223 days of warranty left.

A few weeks ago the "right-click" button on my digitizer pen broke and is probably still stuck inside the pen holder device.

I couldn't verify this because I do not want to open it myself due to the warranty restrictions.

However the drop-out mechanism of the penholder does still hold the pen but won't release is properly.
Now there is a possibility, that the "right-click" button got lost a long time ago and that the created gap on the pen is responsible for the jam inside the holder.

Is there a way to just get the pen fixed without sending in the whole tablet?
I need it every day.

you can ask for a replacement pen, but can that solve your problem?
