Wacom Intuos 3 Pen Pressure Problem

I haven't even had the wacom for 6 months and it's already acting up. The pen pressure goes on and off- mostly off- all the time.

I've tried rebooting the user prefrences, tried reseting the brushes in photoshop, uninstalled and reinstalled it, almost everything and it still won't work ( the reinstalling of the program made it work but that was only until I unplugged it. When I plugged it back in it went back to drawing thick solid lines).

I don't want to have to keep reseting and reinstalling the program everytime it doesn't work, and this problem is starting to frustrate me to the point where drawing with it isn't even enjoyable anymore. So please, any suggestion would be nice.

    apparently the problem is with adobe and wacom not getting on. I have heard that adobe cs3 has loads of bugs in it- i have gone back to using ph7- pressure is fine. also buying a wacom has been one of the biggest regrets ever- if you havent tried a trust tablet- i recomend you do so- no issues with anything and the pressure control is the best i have ever tried

    I have Photoshop 7, and it just started happening with me too.  Very frustrating and it's even more frustrating that others have experienced it but found no solution.

Close the program, and reopen it WITH the pen (not the mouse).

Where can i get a wacom bamboo tablet?


You can buy them new from places like Amazon or directly from Wacom. Just to confuse you more-- it used to be Bamboo, Intuos, and Cintiq. Now the entry level tablets are the Intuos, the mid-level has become the Intuos Pro, and then the Cintiq.

Does the Wacom Intuos2 Classic Pen (xp 300e) work with the Wacom Bamboo CTL 470 tablet?


From what I read on Wacom's site, they are NOT compatible.
The Bamboo use a stylus that is different than the nib pens that the Intuos use. The stylus for the Bamboo is more like the stylus you can purchase for smart phones. The Intuos pens are pressure sensitive and have different nibs you can use for different effects and feel. You can go to their website and look for compatible pens and stylus' for your specific tablet.

You may have an issue with the drivers. If you're using the drivers on the CD, try updating to the latest drivers:

If you're using the latest drivers and the issue persists, try rolling back your drivers to the previous release:

Intuos 3 Pen/Stylus suddenly stopped working (as in dead).


Will the tablet work with the mouse? If it does not, is not working is the blue LED light on. If the LED is not working try another usb port. If the mouse works go into the Wacom tablet properties from the start menu. Select the grip pen from the tools. Click on the default button to restore the stylus to factory settings. When you press the pen you should see the pressure scale rise. You can also test the eraser pressure. You could also replace the stylus tip to see if that works. From the Wacom site you can order a new stylus or tips if it is found defective.

My Wacom Intuos3 tablet won't switch into pen mode


The winning answer came courtesy of Mr Benedikt Schmitt of Wacom Europe, who offered the following solution: from the Windows Device Manager, disable the “Wacom Virtual Hid Driver” device. (Go to Control Panel > System and Maintenance > Device Manager, find the driver, right-click it and choose “Disable”.) One reboot later (welcome to Windows-land, circa 2008?), everything works as desired. Pressure and tilt sensitivity inside Photoshop still work, and the pen functions just fine in the rest of the Windows desktop. The absolute mapping makes it an absolute pleasure to point quickly and precisely. It makes my laser mouse feel rather clumsy navigating a large 24′ screen!

Pen pressure and scale problems


I also use Intuos 3 tablet, did you already try replacing the tip and reconfiguring the pen to the screen? You can find this in the driver software, it synchronizes the pen and tablet.
If you already tried that, does the problem only occur in Photoshop? Also, check your brush preferences, you can go back to your default settings and see. If talking to Wacom fails, you might have a bad pen or tablet.
