    Hey all,

    Have a note 5, about a month old, amazing phone, love it. Last night the S Pen, which i have used with no issue for ages, started playing up.

    It has started working when not touching the phone, and I have found that the side button is reversed. For example, when i write in S Note, I have to push the button to draw and if I release, it goes to eraser. This is the opposite of what is supposed to happen.

    Has anyone come across this? Samsung support was close to useless, factory reset and wiped cache partition no help.

    Hi there,

    To perhaps eliminate the phone as the problem. Try entering recovery mode, and wiping the Cache Partition.No data loss will occur.

    Let us know.

    Funny as this may sound, try smacking your spen flat on a hard surface, like a table, a few times. This also fixes other s pen errors.
