Solution 1: Remove your phone case
If you are using an unauthorized third party phone protective case, you must remove it. Most local protective cases have traces of magnets and metal which can disrupt the connection of your Galaxy Note 10 with the S-pen. This is the most common way to repair your S-pen by simply removing the protective case and this method works on most devices.
Solution 2: Remove the screen protections from your phone
You must remove the screen protectors if you are using a third-party screen protector. The main reason for removal is the thickness of the protectors. Most unauthorized screen protectors are relatively thicker than the original ones. The thickness of these protectors can affect the sensitivity of the screen. As a result, the device is unable to recognize the tip of the S-pen. The roughness of screen protectors can also be the cause of this problem. This can cause the tip of the S-pen to wear out. It is therefore advisable to remove such a screen protector and to use authentic and authorized screen protectors.
Solution 3: Restart your device smoothly
After removing the screen protectors, you can gently restart your device. You can press and hold the power button, then press the restart button. Your phone will restart within a short time.
Solution 4: Note 10 system update
In some cases, some bugs cause the S-pen to malfunction, so the operating system developer deploys regular updates to your devices to fix bugs and improve system security. You can follow the steps below to update your system software:
- Open your device settings
- Click on Software Update
- Select Download update manually
If there are updates, your device will download and install them. Your phone will restart and you can then use your S-pen. If your S-pen does not work after updating the software, you must perform a data reset.
Solution 5: perform a factory data reset
Resetting the factory data will allow your phone to function properly as it did when it was first started. You must back up your data before performing a reset as a factory data reset gives your phone a fresh start by deleting your files and restoring the default settings. To reset the factory data, proceed as follows:
- Go to settings
- Click on General Management
- Now press Reset
- Scroll down and tap on the factory data reset option
- Tap Reset
- Tap Delete All.
Solution 6: Check the tip of your S stylus
If any of the above methods do not work on your device, check whether the pinching of the S-pen is in good condition or not. If your pen is used, you must replace it with a new one. Follow the steps to replace your S-pen pinch:
- Using tweezers, firmly hold the tip of the S-pen, then remove it.
- Take the new tip and insert it into the stylus S with your fingertips.
