Galaxy Note5: How to replace the S Pen nib

Last Update Date : Apr 23. 2018



1. If the nib is dull, replace it with a new one. Firmly hold the nib with the tweezers and remove it.



2. Insert a new nib into the S Pen.



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 press the nib excessively when inserting the nib into the S Pen.
• 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.
• The Recents key and the Back key can be used with the S Pen.
• For more information about the S Pen, visit the Samsung website.
