I lost the stylus or have trouble drawing on the device
You have no way to draw or write on the screen
You may use any non-abrasive item to write on the screen, such as a pen cap or a fingernail. However, you will not be able to save your images because the stylus contains a device that is tracked by the antenna in the Boogie Board.
Ensure you are not using the device near magnets, as this can cause interference with the device's screen.
