Unfortunately, Direct pen input has stopped working error message--SAMSUNG Note 3

Last night, I was very upset when I called AT&T tech support and 2 different agents did not have a solution for the error message that kept popping up on my 2 day old Samsung Note 3. I was told to take it to the AT&T store and have a reset or get a new phone. I was highly disappointed at that suggestion. In my 7 plus years with AT&T I have never been sent away from tech support without a solution. One of the agents that I spoke to connected me with Samsung...they did not have a clue. I was highly disappointed but after a few tries and internet searches I found the solution:

 

Go to Settings, Application Manager, Scroll across to "Turned Off", MyScript Resource Manager, click turn it back on (MyScript Resource Manager, that is).

 

I am still quite disappointed that there was no solution from AT&T Tech support NOR Samsung. I was about to return to the iPhone.

Omg, that same thing just happened to me and your post was very helpful in fixing the problem. I'm sorry you had to deal with poor customer service, but thank you for saving me from having to deal with it too. This problem was very annoying and I really appreciate you posting this solution! :smileyvery-happy:
