It's really upsetting that Samsung omitted such an important tool as calibration, it's well known fact that Wacom digitizers tend to loose calibration over time (due to magnetic nature), and need to be re-calibrated. Heck, my 2005 Toshiba M200 has one, and 2007 Lenovo X61T, too. I guess it's better to stick with Windows tablets if good pen support is needed.

My I467 is a paperweight now, S Pen is off 1-2mm on part of the screen (maybe due to 4.4.2 OTA update, not sure). Now use my old trusty X61T for drawing. If I won't be able to fix calibration issue on i467, then will buy Dell Venue 8 Pro with N-Trig digitizer and Win8.

Use an app that hides the bars. I used SketchBook in full screen mode. Works fine. Although I think it just makes it easier to see where you're drawing. You might not even need the program; maybe all you need is to move the stylus to the extremes of the screen. I really wish someone out there who knows the definitive way to calibrate these things would pipe up and talk about how the software calibrates itself.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but such apps require root. Which my Note doesn't have.

LOL, it's a lot of maybes.
IMHO, it's a digital world - either there is a specific procedure to calibrate, or there isn't.
Trying all sorts of things without specific knowledge what to do - waste of time, it's like looking for a black cat in a dark room.
I think that smart thing to do here is to learn this lesson and stay away from Samsung in the future.

Yes Samsung messed up but it's not like we don't have a solution . I flashed civato's rom and kernel and never looked back.

Right, well I'm not really familiar with your model to be honest. Just saying that a fix is possible through custom firmware if available for your device.

The Note 8.0 threads (like many on xda) are actually meant for multiple devices that are still similar in nature. In the case of the Note 8.0, this includes the N5100, N5110, N5120, etc. For your information I have the N5110, so I am definitely in the right place. Remember we are all here to share and help each other. Respect is paramount. Good luck

Luck is not a factor here. I467=Galaxy Note 8.0 (AT&T). It takes 10sec for a reasonably intelligent person to figure out. Instead of paying minimal attention and reading the actual posts, you hurry up and say there's a solution by flashing. It's not applicable for I467, it cannot be flashed.

As always, I read through the thread bud. I see you have like 17 posts so far, so still relatively new to xda. Instead of being confrontational, understand that my post was directed at the other Note 8..0 models like the N5100, N5110, etc. If it doesn't apply to your variant then so be it. This thread does not revolve around your variant alone. The same applies to many other xda threads. Good day sir.

This is the secret code of Samsung to get to Factory Mode, using Calculator : (+30012012732+
Then : *#0*# in Calculator
You should get to Factory Mode where you can test different functions, especially Wacom Test, If it fails the test, your Lcd is defective ( S Pen cable is from LCD ), this one is an example.
The test won't do any calibration, just Pass or Fail.
Wacom Test
