Question about Wacom Bamboo Fun 5.8" x 3.7" USB Tablet with Cordless Pen and Mouse - Black

3 Answers

Unstable cursor when i get my pen near the pad or touch the pad, the cursor on the screen shakes violently. The cursor has spasms and I don't know what to do. I have moved the pad away from my monitor as far as the little cord will stretch and still does it. I have tried turning all appliances off except my macbook and the the pad and still does the same thing. I can however point the **** of the pen when it is on the pad in a different direction and it will sort of get rid of the shakiness. I really want to use this but I can't because it is too shaky.

Mainly this is due to your power supply adapter problem.It will be stable when the laptop running in battery i.e without adapter connection

Not sure if this is the final answer, but after resetting to all default settings, finally it seemed when I changed the Options- Click and Tap to Hover Click, the issue resolved... for now at least.

I have an Intuos 3 and use it on a Mac - really tough to do Vector Art in Illustrator with the cursor jiggling and flickering all the time.

That might be somewhat correct,
i noticed my original dell adapter seemed to have gotten rid of the shakes. Avoid the after market adapters i guess...

Tablet pen's cursor skips around in 3 places?


The cursor skipping in three places is apparently caused by the connectors inside the tablet getting dirty or corroded.
Fortunately, you can easily fix this problem yourself! All you need to do is unscrew the back of your tablet, unplug the connectors and clean them with a q-tip dipped in alcohol.
There is a video on YouTube that shows you step-by-step how to do it(it's easy!).
It's called: Howto fix dead areas on any graphics tablet and it's posted by riodroid.
Here's a link to it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ff7Vw-0kPsE

Hope this helps!

My Genius Mousepen 8x6 tablet isn't working with the pen. If the pen touches the tablet, the light lights up, but the cursor doesn't click and it won't move either. The mouse is working fine, though.


My i608 pen stopped working today. I've had it for a month. The mouse was working fine, but the pen wouldn't work at all. Then I left the mouse on the pad and used the pen while the mouse was on the pad, and the pen started working again. Now it works even without the mouse on the pad. Did it re-establish the radio connection or something by doing that? Anyway, saved me the $25 replacement cost.

Is it possible to remove features from a tablet?


I have the bamboo fun pen also. I am currently running Windows Vista 64bit home and have the same problem. I fixed mine by going into the control options > Tablet PC Settings > Other > Go to Pen and Input Devices > Settings (Under Pen Options) Then I clicked at the top Where it states "Enable press and hold for Right-clicking". I disabled that and my pen works with no holding for the right click. I can make scratch marks all day! Hope this helps you too.

Skipping and Shaking cursor


I have exactly the same problem as you, my tablet worked perfectly for the first three months and then started to act weird, shaking and skipping screen areas, even if i only touch it with my forearm.

Uninstalling/Re-Installing drivers didn't solved anything, so i started switching my tablet to different usb ports in my pc, and from one to another, the problem got a lot better. It didin't solved it, but works "decent". So, comparing yor experience with mine, it's probably an usb-port problem, rather than the tablet itself i thik.


I will test it in othe computerts to see how it goes
