Help pen left clicks without even touching the pad

2018-04-30, 5:04 AM

So my lenovo yoga book with halo keyboard was working awesome.  I lost the plastic cap so I've just been using the real ink on my drawing pad.  


So I just got this thing,  and found out I could take out the real ink cartridge.  Took it out,  placed it back in.  Now when I go to use it,  its like its constantly left clicking,  without the pen even thouching the pad.  


I seriously just bought this two days ago.  And now I don't know what to do.

Two things - try taking the cartridge out and putting it back in, but don't push it in too hard. 

- Not all cartridges that are the same size as those Lenovo supplies with the Yoga Book are compatible - the conductivity of the material they are made of is a factor. (There are discussions about suitable refills  in other threads here.)


Just a thought - might also be worth wiping the cartridge with a dry cloth before inserting it - slight dampness/oilyness might just affect it. Not sure - that might be a crazy thought!


(You could bodge a new tip with any scrap of plastic shaped to fit, but it would need to be a conductive plastic to work as an Anypen on the screen as well as on the Halo pad. And as I've posted recently Lamy do plastic tipped cartridges.)
