Question about Genius MousePen 8x6 (MOUSEPEN8X6)

1 Answer

Pen only has one pressure thickness?

This is my first tablet so im not sure if the hardware is at fault or i'm not using it right. Whenever i use the pen over the tablet it only displays one pressure which is 1023, the box says that it is supposed to have a thickness from 0 to 1024. Mine only displays a single thickness. Also when i use the pen as a substitute for the mouse in the desktop area, as soon as it reaches 1/2 inch above the tablet it reacts as a left-click, no matter how slow or fast i tab the pen on the tablet it starts clickin' all around making a mess out of my desktop icons. Im unsing a laptop with Vista. any suggestions?

Hmm. . . Have you tried to install the driver for the tablet? If not, that should solve your pressure problem. I can't help with the left-click problem, however.

My Genius Easypen i405X tablet keeps clicking when I hover with pen


Hello :) we have the same problem regarding the same brand and product. But I got mine working just a while ago.
Try this: Control Panel>Pen and Touch
under pen options, there should be settings regarding the pen buttons. Unclick the "use the pen button as a right-click equivalent"
hope this helps though although it's been a year XD

My Bamboo tablet will not respond to pressure when I use it. I am primarily using Photoshop CS3 for drawing... I've reinstalled all of the drivers, and updated them, but it will still not give any...


Try hitting the pen head into your hand 5 times. Do the same with the eraser ( do it pretty hard but not too hard. I hurt my hand with the pen tip a LITTLE so you can gauge it by that). The humidity in the air causes the pen pressure to stick apparently. I had the same problem and this made it work. You should try and clean it too but if you don't want to take the pen apart this is the way to go. i hope this helps.

Wacom tablet pen right click always active.


I'm having this same problem with my original Graphire (ET), with a replacement pen that's less than two years old.
I don't think it's a driver issue, based on the indicator light on the tablet itself. It turns green like it's detecting a click when either end of the pen is brought near the tablet. To me, that suggests an issue with the pen hardware. The mouse has no such problem.
I'd be very interested if anyone has a solution to this.

Wacom pen does not function


Unfortunately I had the same problem.

Its from moisture in the pen, could be from humidity or something spilling on it. Try searching google for information on how to fix wet electronics. (Im quite sure youre not supposed to use heat)

Pressure sensitivity problem in Photoshop CS3


Before you start Photoshop press and hold the shift key and wait until photoshop has loaded.
This should take care of the problem.

Pen no longer pressure senstive in painter


Go to Start>Programs>Wacom>Wacom Properties and in there you should be able to "Add" Painter X to the programs recognised by the tablet app.

My Genius Gpen 4500 has shown no Pressure recognition on Photoshop, Painter and the wizard.


Hello. I'm not quite sure if this will be useful for you, but i'll tell you what happened to me. I bought the very same model but without the mouse, the G-pen450. When I just bought it, I just intalled the driver from the CD, and both the painter X and photoshop cs1 trials included. I had no problem when I was drawing in photosho cs1, but when I uninstalled it and and installed photoshop cs2, I was still able to draw with the pen, but it had no pressure sensibility, no matter how hard did I press the pen against the table or how many times i enabled or disabled the pressure settings in both photoshop and the tablet driver.

what i did was downloading the new driver (the 2.0 version) for the g-pen450 from the genius page, and simply installed it ... and it didn't work, worse; now even the pen suite didn't recongize the pressure control, so, what I did was to uninstall the WHOLE software included with the table along with the driver, and then I reinstalled the new version (2.0). After I installed it, the instaling program asked me to restart the computer, so I did it. Then, after the computer was done restarting, I connected the tablet to a USB port, and then the computer recognized it, actually it told me that it recognized the tablet, two HID compatible dispossitives, and a HID compatible mouse pen. It opened that window that appears everytime you connect new hardware to the computer, and it proceeded to "install" all the drivers needed for the dispossitives.

After the computer finished installing, it asked again to restart the PC, soooo I restarted it again, when it was done, I connected the tablet once again, and this time it displayed that "your new hardware is installed and ready to use" balloon on the bottom right corner of the screen. So I tried opening photoshop CS2 again and drawing with the tablet, and this time it did work perfectly.

I think it's matter of uninstalling the old driver, and the bundle software (annotate all, pen commander, pen mail, pen signer, etc. ) and then instaling the 2.0 version of the driver.

Initial Delay of tablet pen


I had a similar problem with Vista which made the pen/cursor freeze just as the tip was placed on the tablet face.
The problem turned out to be a Vista setting.
I went to Start > Control Panel > Pen and Input Devices.
Then in the Pen Options tab highlight the "Press and Hold" pen action and then press the "Settings..." button. In the dialog box that opens uncheck the "Enable press and hold for right-clicking" check box. Hit "OK".
Worked for me.

Tablet gone insane.


I'm from ukraine, sorry my english;

Reason:
Random clicks hapens becouse moving tip not return to the front. It continue to sent chaotic pressure messages. Some times, when you start to lift pen, tip start to resilient and we have ugly dots again.


Here is solution:
May be auto silicon oil wil help by reducing rubbing. Or harder spring will help?
I use little bit of plasticine. I push it under the tip. It prevent tip from resilienting. I have no problems, since i made this.

Good luck.
