    Left the cap off the pigma pen..Fixable??

    I tried to use one of my Pigma Micron pens and noticed that the cap was not on tight, therefore it seems to have dried up. Is it? or is there some ink somewhere inside the pen?
    Maybe there is a magic formula to get it going again, or perhaps I should just let it go (
    Thanks !

    once they dry up that is pretty much it..sorry---just like most markers-
    you could visit the web site & see if there are any (tips) but i've never had any luck bringing one back to life once i let it dry up---just a lesson to learn- always make sure your caps are on tight- and they are stored properly.

    which means storing them horizontally versus standing up.

    Try dropping in jar full of warm water top up and put of water,. Also try drop of hot warm water on the tip. Second way is messy. This sometimes revitalises or a few lines.

    I have also found out the hard way that it isn't good for a cap to be left off a pen...it probably isn't fixable for you either. Maybe someone will have a suggestion that works...I hope so for you...and for me if it happens again.

    You might try putting it in some alcohol for a little while. Can't hurt.
