Intuos3 tablet Partially "Blind"!

Dear Experts,

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?

SOURCE: My Intuos3 Wacom Tablet doesn't work...sometimes

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.

SOURCE: My tablet pen occasionally stops responding.

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!

SOURCE: wacom intuos3 pen is not working

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!

SOURCE: Wacom tablet stopped working, blue light on.

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.

Why won't my wacom grip pen click when it touches the tablet instead of hovering and selecting text?


Have you tried pulling the nib out (the end bit you draw with)? It could be that something is sticking the nib further inside the pen than it should, which is telling the pen you are applying pressure. As far as I know there is a little spring inside the pen that the nib pushes on when you touch the pen to the tablet. Perhaps the spring is permanently squished in.

Since you are running Windows Vista on your PC this is the driver you should have downloaded.

Serial cables are not hot swappable. The computer and tablet should be turned off before you plug them in.

I can't install my Intuos3 onto Vista


I don't think there are any programs for the Wacom. I don't see any on my computer. Open photoshop and see if the tablet works in there.

Update your drivers, but uninstall them completely first. if that doesn't work then you may have a faulty board.

Wacom Intuos3 stopped working when I upgraded to Leopard


I did solve it myself. Having downloaded the new drivers off the Wacom website, I hadn't realised they were still sitting on my desktop waiting to be installed. Once I found the folder and opened and installed it everything worked fine!

Random Scrolling


Disable the touch strips on both sides of the tablet, yes unfortunately you have to do that (actually, first thing i`d recommend to do when you set up your Intuos3)
