My Stylus is Too Small
Enlargement Solution Needed

 5:22 pm on Jan 15, 2004 (gmt 0)

OK, I'll admit that it's embarrassing when it happens... sometimes my stylus slides right out of my Sony CLIE. It used to fit in a perfectly satisfying manner, but now I've had it fall out unexpectedly on multiple occasions.

Actually, I don't believe the problem is my stylus. You may think I'm trying to shift the blame to my faithful PDA, but in fact I've tried a brand new OEM stylus with the same result. The, ummm, other-gendered receptacle is just too loose.

Even though the problem isn't technically my stylus, enlarging it seems like an easier process than addressing the obvious deficiency of its mate. I'm concerned that a simple solution like wrapping a bit of tape around it might make my stylus rather gummy & sticky as time passes - certainly not desirable.

Except for this vexing problem, my relationship with my Sony Clie has been great. In fact, we spend as much time together as we did when we first met. I have to admit, though, that I'm starting to find myself attracted to PDAs that aren't quite as old as my CLIE. These sleek beauties would no doubt cure my stylus slippage problem, as well as offer some other obvious advantages.

Is anyone willing to open up and share their own experience with this kind of problem and offer some frank advice?

rogerd - I am afraid no here is willing to touch your problem.

he, he... you may be right, MG. Maybe I shouldn't have raised the issue. I had hoped for advice from another member.

hehe - buy a new stylus.

My Ipaq wears out pretty fast too. I always have a spare laying around.
