1. Are you ready for the Galaxy S20? Here is everything we know so far!

A small portion of my screen won't recognize my S-Pen

    It's like half an inch of screen but if I'm drawing or writing this space stays completely blank no matter what. I bought a new S Pen and it's the same thing..

    Weird thing is it recognizing my finger touch just not an S pen.

    It's kinda annoying what can I do? Messing with the sensitivity doesn't work either.

    Any suggestions??

    Are you using a case by any chance which may have a magnetic clasp? If so, try it without the case on.

    This is what happened when I used a Case-Mate case on my Note 3 with a magnetic clasp, you can see where it "bulges" and doesn't write at all:

    Nah I am using the Samsung S View cover I bought from Verizon.

    And it has nothing that keeps it shut so can't be a magnetic issue...

    It's been a long while since i used this but there's an app is the play store called Reset S-Pen. It worked for me on the Note 2- give it a try. This is the free version.

    By the looks of the feedback on the app it seems like this is exactly what I need.

    Unfortunately I'm not rooted so I can't use this app.

    My apologies. I must've forgotten you need root. As I said, it's been a long time since I used it.
