    Hi All,

    My EP121 started to act nuts on me yesterday. I was using the stock pen and it would think that it was engaged with the screen about a half and inch away. If I was using an app for writing, I could write on the screen without the pen making contact.

    I had a spare that I purchased a while back. Gave it a try and it works perfectly. The stock pen still has the issue.

    Has anyone experienced this before. Any type of battery in the stock pen? Do they have a "shelf life" then just stop working correctly?

    thanks for any input,

    BJ

    bod: Try removing the pen nib and then gently but firmly re-installing it. It sounds like your nib is stuck in the depressed position...
