Hi, restarting your device can help fix minor issues and may help the S Pen connect again. On devices with a regular Power key, press and hold the Power key until the Power menu is displayed. Tap the Power icon at the top of the screen, and then tap Restart. Tap Restart again.
Hi, please try to wipe the cache partition of the phone. Start by turning off your phone. Hold the Volume Up and Bixby keys, then the Power key. Once the logo appears, release all three keys at the same time. After about 30 to 60 seconds the system update message will disappear and the recovery menu options will appear. Highlight the “wipe cache partition” option using the Volume Down and Power keys to navigate. Then restart the device by highlighting the menu option.
If you have another device that uses an S Pen, try using the S Pen from that device, and vice versa. Most S Pens' touch, hover and button functionality are compatible with many devices.
If your S Pen does not work on the other device, it may require a replacement.
If the other S Pen does not work on the original device, it may require service.
