Question about Wacom Intuos3 Graphic Tablet
My Intuos3 A4 tablet suddenly went faulty during my work.
The tablet is in normal condition and properly taken care of.
The problem is: there is a horizontal strip(around 1/4 of the tablet height in the upper centre) on the tablet is not responding.
Please refer to the simple illustration below:
The "|||||||||||||" area cannot detect any movement of the pen (tip or tail/eraser)-----------1.no movement of the cusor 2.no change or the blue light
what i tried:
1. update the driver (the driver is up to date)
2. change the PC (same problem on different PC), rule out the PC's problem
3. different OS (I tried it on XP and windows server 2003)
4.change the mapping setting of the tablet (full mapping, partial mapping whatsoever)
all of the above trials are not working.
Anyone can suggest any solution for that?
I had a similar problem with the tablet not picking up the pen until I waved it around (in range) for a few seconds. I realized later that the slow response time was due to me having the usb plugged in to the monitor instead of directly into the computer... I switched and all is fine now.

what you need to do is go into cmd prompt and type this: /configtab (you need to type it correctly, sometimes you may need all caps or no caps, it depends your software). get the 7 digit code that appears next to "confm" and go to your tablet settings and enter it into the confirmation input. and you are set to go!

A few hours ago Wacom released a new driver 6.1.2-5 for the Windows 7/Vista/XP operating systems. I was having the same problem. Hopefully this will be a permanent fix!

I had a similar problem using an Intuos 3 on Windows 7. Everything worked fine for a year, then all of a sudden, completely unresponsive.
The tablet LED was on, and changed when the pen made contact. Drivers were all up to date, and Windows recognized the tablet. Here's what fixed it.
Go to the Wacom Tablet folder in the program list in your start menu. Click on "Wacom Preference File Utility." Choose "remove" from the "all user preferences" panel, and you're done.
That got the ball rolling again for me; hope it works for you too.
