    I just saw this video posted on the 27th for an easy solution to getting the stylus Unstuck using s simple sheet of paper.

    Let's maybe get the word out on this simple solution to save others the heartache of idiocracy. The guy on the video even has teh phone open so you can see what the problem is and what gets broken when you rip the stylus out.

    GREAT INFORMATIVE VIDEO!!
    Looks to be a very easy fix, no need to worry again about the S pen getting stuck, just follow simple instructions!

    This one shows how to do that; but would most likely void the warranty.

    First video I've seen that didn't involve breaking the glass.

    Yea the glass will break. I just put it back on and put on a case. I you are patient and use the heat gun correctly its no biggie. Getting a new glass when it hits the maket and I need a spen sensor. The phone works fine.

    Thanks for the post. So either paper or a straw cut in half will do the trick. I don't forsee myself ever running into this problem, but it's nice knowing there is an easy fix.

    Does anyone know how to remove an S Pen that will not click? I did not insert the pen backwards, it is in normally, but the end spring is depressed and will not click to extend outwards. I'm not sure of what to do in this situation.

    It looks like you could remove it in the same manner as the video shows.

    It doesn't seem possible. Keep in mind my pen is inserted normally, end flush with the phone. I have no way of conforming the paper to the pen's surface, if it will even fit.
    My click-spring is just stuck in pressed mode. I feel like I need something to grab the pen's edge and pull it out, but there is so little space.

    I don't have a Note 5 to try it,
    but it seems like you could get under the edge of the pen with the tip of an x-acto knife or the tip of a box cutter blade just enough to get it started, being careful not to scar it up!
    Then maybe work it out with a toothpick?

    I seem to only be able to find backwards solutions. Do you have a video suggestion?
