    It wont even load :/

I've done what was described in here and glued the magnet back on the pen tip but it doesnt function the same anymore. Anyway thanks for the tips.

SOURCE: my pen pointer stopped working on my Bamboo Fun

You probably dropped the pen - there is a very fragile ferrite core in the tip and when it breaks it behaves just as you describe.  I have posted a description of the repair procedure (adapted from a description for other pens that I had found on the web) on my blog: http://wishidknownthat.blogspot.com/2009/04/fixing-wacom-bamboo-pen.html

It takes a bit of patience and skill but you can do it.
I am pretty sure that this kind of "surgery" would void any warranty - on the other hand, if this is indeed your problem they will say you abused the pen (by dropping it) and charge you for the new one anyway.

SOURCE: Wacom Bamboo Fun Pen isnt working correct

I think you dropped the pen on its tip and broke the little ferrite sensing core.  You can try to repair it by gluing the core back together - it worked for me.  For detailed instructions on how to do it, go here: http://wishidknownthat.blogspot.com/2009/04/fixing-wacom-bamboo-pen.html  or you can try to swap the core for the eraser and the tip (more involved - you would need to be very good with a soldering iron to attempt this).  Either way - it's unfortunate that the pen is so fragile and that the user manual doesn't really warn you of this.
Good luck!

SOURCE: Bamboo Fun won't work w/ provided software

Hello,

I had the same problem when I got my laptop (Vista OS). The solution is to update the new driver for your bamboo. They are out of date so you need to go here: http://www.wacom.com/downloads/driver-detail.php?id=196 Updated @ Apr. 9, 2009

This update should allow Vista to find it.

When I'm using Photoshop CS4 with my Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet, the screen tracking for the tablet only works for half the tablet. This happens with everything else as well, not just Photoshop...


Go to Control Panel, and open bamboo properties. There you select the "pen" tab. In the pen tab you will see tracking. Select pen mode and details. You can map the pad there. After mapping pen mode try it in mouse mode as well. Best of luck!

I think you need to select the right tool to use with the tablet, I like to use the tablet with the lasso tool. If you want to draw use Adobe Illustrator. If it works as a mouse I think you just need to learn how to use the software you are dealing with.

Stuck mouse


Please unplug the mouse and replug it again. Let me know if the mouse is Ball Type. If it is Optical then, find out setting of Mouse in Control Panel and adjust them and test.

For Ball Type, remove the ball and clean all dust coming on it. also adjust the setting in control panel.
