Crazy Tablet - Genius 8x6

Please help me.

I love my genius 8x6 tablet, but I didn't use it for about a month, and now when I connect the tablet and try to use the pen, it goes crazy, the pointer goes everywhere, I don't even have to touch the tablet, i just get close with the pen and the pointer goes crazy, opens programs, selects things in my desktop, etc.... dangerous! Same happens with the tablet Mouse.

Please someone help me.
Is there a way to reset the tablet?
I removed the driver and instaled again, and its still not working.

thank you!

    This happens for me also, but it wasn't from lack of use, but because I installed a Logitech EX110 cordless keyboard and mouse afterwards.

    Uninstalling both, and attempting to reinstall in any order doesn't work.

    It's impossible to look at the mouse properties with the Genius tablet plugged it (because of the crazy mouse actions), and the minute you unplug it the "mouse" disappears.

    I've contacted both Logitech and Genius tech support, but to no avail.

    I *really* miss my tablet!

I have same tablet and the biggest problem is USB cable!!!
USB able is made from bad materials and the plastic/rubbery coating of inner wires of USB cable is very easy to brake, then the wires inside of the cable get connected between them selves and all the problem that you have starts.
I had those problems and all was solved by changeing the USB cable.
Changeing the USB is litle bit problematic becous it is connected to the tablet by microconnector that is wery hard to find (for me it was inpocibile). Becouse I couldn't find the matching microconnector I connected new cable to the one on the old cable welding the wires to the ones on the microconector . AND IT WORKED!!!
You may consider to by new tablet becouse this may seam complicated, but for me it was an interesting thing to do and it payed out. Just watch out to connect all the wires properly!!!!!
I hope this was helpful :)
Sorry for bad english ;)

P.S. If you have any problem while doing this write me here and all try my best to give you answers.

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.

Genius 8x6 tablet pen freezes


Try putting a new battery in it. Mine was having the same sort of problems, and they were pretty much entirely fixed by a new battery.

My pen wont respond on the tablet


No software aside from drivers are necessary. The Genius Tablet comes a configuration menu you can test. If you don't have this, you can get it for free from Genius' website.

You need to hold the pen close to the tablet to allow it to detect movement. I hold my pen <1cm from the surface. You may want to check the batteries.

Genius 8x6 MousePen Tablet not detected


sounds like a short in the wiring. the usb cable i very flimsy and very prone to breaking. if you know what your doing you could open it up and TRY to fix it, but if its under warranty get a replacement. thats about all you can do bro. stupid companies and their cheap craftsmanship.

Skipping


I had the same problem and got it fixed. I opened the tablet. (you'll find all the screws at the back, some of them beneath those black rubber pads).

Before you open the tablet, disconnect it from the computer!

Once you open the tablet, you'll find an electronic grid, fixed with tiny black rubber rings.

Check to see all rubber rings are in place
. At the point where the pen skips, check to see if the rubber ring is at the same hight as the neighbouring rings.

Once you checked these, Close the tablet again.

Be sure to firmly close all screws. If you don't make sure every screw is firmly attached, the tablet might skip again and might go crazy!

Re-connect the tablet to the computer, restart Windows if necessary, and it will hopefully work perfectly!

It worked with me this way! Good Luck to you ;)
