Hello, 

I got a tab s6 lite a little over 2 months ago. Today my s pen stopped working. I am not sure what the issue is but have tried all the tricks that I have seen on different posts on the web and on Samsung. I have ordered replacement tips for the pen but wasn't sure if there was something else causing it or if I just needed to get  a new pen.

Hi kcrase78, I suggest you to please try the S Pen with any other compatible device. If there is any third-party case or cover, then that could cause interference with S Pen recognition, and screen protectors can cause inconsistent motion and pressure when using the S Pen and you could try removing the screen protector and retest the S Pen.

Might be a tip 🤷
Magnets on cases or nearby by can affect your Spen 🤦

Here's the 2 hoops I would jump through...

1-Under settings search
"S pen remote"
Click the 3 dots at the top right and then reset S pen.

If that don't get you through the ring of fire try this...

I broke the s pen that came with the actual galaxy s6 tab lite so I ordered a new one off of the Samsung website ... it is not recognizing the pen at all...and when I follow the steps I do not have the 3 dots at the top of the page
