Genius 8x6 MousePen Tablet not detected

You see, I've had my tablet since, oh, around July or August. Genius MousePen, 8x6, it's in good condition [ seemingly ]. But lately I've been encountering problems with it. The major and most annoying one is that it isn't detected by my computer anymore [ Windows XP ]. Not even adjusting the wire can make the green light come on, although, rarely, it'll flicker for a second, and then go away.

Please, is there any way I can fix this?

    I have the same problem. I've only had mine for about 6mo when this started. I've tried to uninstall and then re-install he drivers and didn't work. I have tried Device Manager - scan for new hardware, that didn't work either.

    I have the same problem. I think the only solution is to obtain a replacement from the factory.

    hi .. are you using a laptop? cuz I think that laptops gives more electricity to tablet than desktops .. and maybe genius tablets can't stand it .. well, I had a genuis tablet for 7 years and was so good .. and when I had my laptop with new tablet .. the tablet lasted for less than 6 months .. so I used the old one with my laptop .. then it broke too!!!! .. so I guess it's not good with laptops??? .. X_X ughhh !!

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.

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.

I have a MousePen 8X6 graphic tablet and by mistake I plug the device to my laptop before installing the tablet software. Now I can not install this software anymore.


With the tablet unplugged from your system, Install the software that came with the MousePen. This will ensure that your system has all of the necessary drivers.
Once that has completed, plug your tablet into a different USB port on your laptop than what you used before. Once you complete this, it should work. What version of windows are you using?

My Genius Mousepen 8x6 conflicts with iTunes


uninstall itunes : 3
if you do not have an iphone you should have little use for this program which is a notoriously bad piece of software in windows.

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.

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 ;)
