Promethean Pen Troubleshooting Guide If your pen is not responding to the Activboard: 1. First determine if the pen will work on another board. If it works on a colleague’s board, the pen is not defective. If defective, turn it in to your building tech to determine if it is under warranty. If it is not under warranty, your school will need to purchase a replacement. The school should contact Trish Goetz, [email protected] for pricing and ordering. 2. Check to see if the ActivInspire software is up to date. Run update if indicated. If update does not resolve issue; go to #3 3.
