Be careful not to pinch your fingers with the tweezers.
• Do not reuse old nibs. Doing so may cause the S Pen to malfunction.

• Do not insert the round end of the nib into the S Pen. Doing so may cause damage to the S Pen or your device.
• If the S Pen is not working properly, take it to a Samsung Service Centre.
• If you use the S Pen at sharp angles on the screen, the device may not recognize the S Pen actions.
  Do not bend or apply excessive pressure with the S Pen while using it.
