    hi iv only had the note for a few days and im loving it but iv just discovered the s pen isnt working correctly if i go to the test screen (*#0*#) it only makes a mark on 1 or 2 of the squares, would a new s pen be the solution
    cheers :)

    I suppose it's possible to have a faulty s-pen. I just tried your test and my s-pen works perfectly. I take it you're having issues during normal operation of the s-pen?

    If I were you, I'd pop into a phone shop and test out another s-pen on your device. This would undoubtedly prove whether your s-pen is the culprit.

    It is possible to re-calibrate the S-pen sensitivity which would be worth a try before buying a new one. It evolves removing the button on the S-pen and twiddling the adjuster screws underneath.

    This video shows how to reduce sensitivity so you'll need to do the apposite to increase sensitivity:

    Well that's odd. Just checked my Note 1 and there is a tiny screw. I've annotated your image as to where it should be. It is an official Samsung S-Pen?

    Did you not try a new s-pen on your phone as I suggested while at the phone shop?

    Do you have a screen protector on your screen? If so, these can cause problems with the s-pen.
