For example, a lot of people have reported that their S Pen is randomly clicking on things, that the S pen is too sensitive or that it clicks without touching the screen. This can be very annoying if you want to scroll through a list and the S pen clicks on something or if you swipe through the screen the S pen simply jumps on another place.

S Pen problems seem to be very common and many have chosen to change their S pen with a new one.

How to Fix S pen problem?

  • Apparently there is a fix for this problem. The S pen can be too sensible, so you have to adjust its potentiometer. Yes, you heard that right.
  • Just pop the button cover off by simply using a razor blade or something really thin, the cover should pop immediately. Then, you have to use a small flat head screwdriver and turn the screw clockwise. This will adjust the S Pen sensitivity. If you want to make it more sensible, then you have to screw counterclockwise.
  • You should adjust it until it no longer has a problem. This fix has worked for a lot of people, so it should work as a general fix. If you still have problems with the S pen, then you should get in touch with the dealer that gave the phone to you and get the S pen switched because it is faulty.

    I had the issue where it would write off screen, but a couple taps made it write correctly. It must have been the nib being stuck.

There are several ways to locate your model number:

Often times you can view the model number inside the device, by removing the battery
