Default S-PEN not working

Hello everybody,
My Spen is not registering well on my note 3 for some reason. I have to press very hard on the screen for it to register. I tried to change the pen's tip but still nothing. Also, I have no screen protector.

You might have a fake Note 3 - which would not be surprising since you have not been able to read the rules of this place and learn that that kind of stuff should be posted in Q/A/Help. After the rules also read the thread about fakes.

If you have a genuine Note 3 reflash the firmware and do a data factory reset. If that doesn`t help its probably a hardware issue and you have to send the device in for repair.
USE Search: /this thread /all threads/Google before posting your question, you`re most likely not the first one having this issue

Carefully pop off the button with a small screwdriver (do this in a room where you can't lose it, it JUMPS. Also take care not to break it. You can wedge it under the button in the center.). Then use the screwdriver to make small(it's sensitive) adjustments to the potentiometer (dial) closest to the tip. This sets the sensitivity of the pen.

You can test it without reattaching the button.

It sounds a bit odd, but this is a normal process for a Wacon pen.

Also, giving a good whack on the edge of a table with the side of the pen sometimes helps.
