I have the answer. I tried everything and still it's a piece of junk Don't fret! I have the boogie board mystery solved!
Remember Boogie Nights? Don't matter, remember DISCO? Ya just like disco, GET RID OF THE STUPID BOOGIE BOARD!
Get a pencil, now get a piece of paper, now get a magnet and stick the paper to the fridge just like we used to do. It never let us down, the pencil broke and resharpening worked like a charm. When the paper was full, guess what, no button!, ya for real dude, no frikin button! So guess what we did... we turned the stupid paper over!
Dumb boogie board is one sided, that's the problem!
Burn your disco records and your boogie boards, problem solved.
