Dropped phone and S-Pen broke inside

My S Pen broke inside the phone. Is there a way to open up the phone and remove it to install another one?

"My S -pen also broke. When I popped it out it went flying behind me. I found all the pieces, or so I thought. Going to a Verizon store was no help. Calling Verizon was no help. Finally I called Samsung and they told me to return it to them for replacement. Then I was in the Verizon store again and this time the rep. told me NOT to send it back to Samsung-that I'd get a refurbished one as replacement. Then the rep. smacked the phone down on his open palm and the (whole) pen dropped out. The force of the jolt when the phone hits the hand pops the pen out - at least partially. Just make sure the pen opening is extended out from the hand. Don't use a table or any other place that is hard.

The rep. suggested that I contact Samsung again and ask for a replacement stylus instead of replacement phone. The stylus had broken at the only ""seam"" on it and when it did, the spring was lost. Without the spring, the pop-out doesn't happen.

Hope that helps."

Mine did the same thing inside of my Note 5. I used a Kobalt 5/64 flathead screwdriver and inserted it into the pen slot. I poked a bit until I felt the opening where the tip was broken, pushed it into the slot and it connected with the broken pen. The activation sound pinged and the stub slid right out. About 30 seconds of work. Replaced with new pen and it worked great.

Not sure how yours broke off, but in my case the 'tip' pulled off inside the phone. I tried the "smacking it vertically" method and that didn't work. I finally tried pushing a zip tie up into the slot; I felt some resistance and pushed just a bit more until I heard the 'latch' inside click, then pulled it back out and - voila!

use a bobby pin! fits perfectly in the hole and gets stuck(? you can remove it after) then pull it out slowly ;)

Mine did the same thing so I just tried to put the other half of the s pen back in and when I went to take it out again the rest came out with after a couple of tries
