Surface Pro 3 pen stopped working RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a surface pro 3, windows 10, the surface pen suddenly stopped working. I replaced batteries, un-paired it and re-paired it.  Windows update, recalibrate... no go.  It just won't respond to the pen anymore.

    • As the Surface pen is a Bluetooth device so try to pair it:

    • Go to Settings and tap Change PC settings
    • Tap PC and devices and then tap Bluetooth
    • Double-check that Bluetooth is turned on
    • If the Surface Pen on the list of the devices, tap it and tell it to Remove device
    • Now that you no long see the Surface Pen under Bluetooth, hold down the top purple button on the pen, until a green light in starts flashing (about 7 seconds) in the middle of your pen. This will allow your pen to reconnect.
    • When the pen shows up on the list again, tap it and then tell it to Pair.

    You may need to reinstall  N-trig Wintab driver.
