My little and sweet stylus had a sultry accident today in my school: fall down about 1 meter and hit the floor with the tip. The tip is damaged now, and i cant use my CP. How can i repair it? (the green tip is in the gray plastic, its sinked).

That sucks ;)

Call Casio for a replacement.. surely they must be able to replace such a part without charging you too much.

:rolleyes: :P

Really bad joke i think :greengrin: , and i dont have girlfriend (damn a girl that i want is too difficult...).

Here casio sucks a lot, i will e-mail them but i think they will not help me (i bought my CP on the US). If i dont have any help, i will "repair" my stylus with a knife, i hope that this will help. Isn't aesthetic but probably will work. Or maybe i will do my own stylus, with a plastic piece and a knife again :P.

More suggestions?

When I got my Pocket Viewer they gave me some nice presents as an offer (beleive it or not, but CASIO did that), one of them was a free violet plastic cover and a stylus in the same color.

So they might just have such stuff for the Classpad, you use any other device that has a soft tip to use your CP, or you could also buy a transparent plastic (like a screen-scratch saver), stick to your screen and just use any pointed device!

Good luck! :)

Hi
I think if the "sheet protector" is still install on your ClassPad touchscreen, you can use other writing instrument instead of the stylus. ( I suggest that you should use a pen that is "out of ink").
Oh, for my ClassPad, I have been taken out the protector, because it really make the screen dark, harder to see. Do you think it is OK? :rolleyes:

I took the protector off too... much easier to view the screen now. I'll take the risc, and obviously take extra care to be careful and not scratch the display. You also need less force to perform drag and drop without the proctive film inbetween

Well guys as i know this is the first CP stylus tragedy in the history of the UCN: my stylus tip is broken.

For solve this problem I do:
Cut the gray plastic around the green "core" of the stylus, and then i have a shortest (about 4mm) stylus, now i will do the new tip more smooth

I cant be the first guy in anything!! (talking about graphic calculators)

I was sure that Mohamed edit the Bitwhise post, really hard joke, but i'm sure it wasn't with bad intention, only a joke.

Crimson you will buy a new stylus? if its correctly tell me the prize (i think its about 30 USD, by that reason i think i will never buy another stylus).

Extremely lucky guy. :greengrin: Tell her that you live on mexico and send me a new one :P. I hope that my redisigned stylus dont have any accident, we can use any plastic piece but the stylus can be inserted on the CP and then its difficult that i lose it.
