The Black Plastic on a new tip that goes to abou 1mm of the tip is conductive.

If it breaks off the Pen doesn't work properly with the capacitive touch screen sensor.

If you apply conductive ink around the tip, keeping it ~1 mm from the tip, but touching  the black plastic, the tip will now work.

Not sure how long this repair will last, but definitely ok for a temporary repair.

PS Conductive ink is available from ebay or most electronic repair outlets.
