    Thanks Dan. I tried to do that in in my original post but it didn't work for me.

    Thanks, thadwald for this information. My pen would stop working and at first I thought that it was the battery, but it continued to stop working sporadically even with a new battery. Remembered this post and took the pen end off and used a pencil eraser to clean the contact and compessed air to blow tthe residue off and the pen has worked just like new.

    I have killed my second pen. It stopped working this weekend. I'm going to try this approach and I'll let you know how it goes.

    Edit: Wow. Pen works much better. I'll have to get some conductive grease. Thanks all.

    I may take a look at my pen as well. I have two HTC Flyer pens and one keeps dying, but it appears to be the battery. I switch the batteries and the one in the silver pen is always dead, but the one in the black pen works for way longer. Dont know why this is.

    Get some electrical tape for the HTC and put it over the buttons before you remove the barrel so they don't fall out. They are a PITA to get back in.
