How do I get my FriXion pen to write again?
If your pen doesn’t seem to be writing, try to remember whether or not the pen may have been over-exposed to heat. If so, try putting your pen in the freezer until it sufficiently cools. After taking your pen out of the freezer and letting it readjust to room temperature, it should write again like new.
How do you get ink to flow in a FriXion pen?
Shake the pen by holding on to the back end of the pen opposite the tip and shake the pen like a thermometer- sometimes air bubbles get into the ink cylinder, so shaking the ink down toward the tip is a good idea. Tap the pen tip against a desk or other hard surface. Write on an eraser or another rubber surface.
