Pen Stylus

To remove the pen stylus, pull it straight out to the right.

To place the pen back in the pen holder, align the projection on the pen with the groove in the pen holder and then gently slide the pen into the holder. Make sure that you push the pen all of the way in until it locks in place, so that it will not fall out unexpectedly.

"NOTE:

Clean the tip of the pen stylus and wipe the screen with a soft lint–

 

free cloth before use. If you use the pen on the screen while either is

 

dirty, the display could become scratched or the pen might not move

 

smoothly on the display surface.

BCAUTION:

Use only the pen provided or your finger tip. Do not use a wood

 

pencil, mechanical pencil, or any other sharp object. Doing so

 

will scratch the screen.
