    I'd say the button in the pen is damaged. Happens from dropping the pen on the floor. Recommend trying new pen to test. Last time I purchased one, it cost £30.

    It sounds a lot like the pen is spiking. Try restarting the board by disconnecting the power from the back. I've also solved a spiking problem by updating / refreshing the firmware.

    --edit--

    Actually thinking about it, it doesn't sound like spiking. If you have a spare pen follow @Meldrew's advice. You could also try my advice as procedure.

    You took someone's word for something?

    Much to learn, you still have.
