Dealing with water damage

General advice


  • if your tablet is connected with any cables, disconnect the cables.

  • If your tablet is connected wirelessly, it may have an on/off button. Turn it off.


  • Remove the nib to help it dry faster

  • Keep the pen upright with the nib removed and pointed down to help drain water

  • Some pens buttons are a "rocker" type which can be removed and put back in. if you are confident you won't harm your pen this is one option.

  • Some people, disassemble their pens - but only try this if you find a good reference on YouTube and are confident around electronics. -
