Open the battery compartment by turning the cap at the clip counterclockwise.

Make sure that the battery end marked "+" points toward the pen tip and that the other end marked "-" touches the contact spring at the back. 4.

Disconnect from the PC and reconnect the device again. If possible, use a different USB port. The writing on the tablet changes or disappears in some areas completely.
