SOURCE: Wacom GP110 pen tip replacement

Just grab the tip with a pair of tweezers and pull it out. It'll come out pretty easily, and you can slide the new tip in its place.

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: Hover problem

I just had a similar problem. I was able to get it fixed by uninstalling the driver, unplugging my tablet, rebooting the computer and then installing the newest driver. While trouble shooting, I found a blog post that explains how to pull the pen apart and glue the broken 'sensor' back together. Search for "Fixing a Broken Wacom Pen" if you think that might be the problem.

SOURCE: wacom intuos3 pen is not working

A few hours ago Wacom released a new driver 6.1.2-5 for the Windows 7/Vista/XP operating systems. I was having the same problem. Hopefully this will be a permanent fix!

SOURCE: my pen writes even if it's hovering over the board. =[

I had this same problem. I found my solution on here, but i don't know if it will work for you. Take the pen and hit the head of the pen into your hand 5 times (pretty hard i hurt my hand while doing it but not too hard) and then do the same with the eraser. It worked fine for me afterwords. Something about humid weather and the sticking of the pressure thing in the pen. I hope this helps

Why won't my wacom grip pen click when it touches the tablet instead of hovering and selecting text?


Have you tried pulling the nib out (the end bit you draw with)? It could be that something is sticking the nib further inside the pen than it should, which is telling the pen you are applying pressure. As far as I know there is a little spring inside the pen that the nib pushes on when you touch the pen to the tablet. Perhaps the spring is permanently squished in.

Intuos 4 pen clicking while hovering


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:

My Graphics Tablet Pen Keeps Clicking When I Hover It Over The Tablet Without Touching It, How Can I Fix It?


This sovled my issue using a Mac...
1. Download the latest driver from Wacom http://www.wacom.com/en/CustomerCare/Drivers.aspx
If you already have the pen tablet uninstaller utility, run it. In my case there was a Bamboo Fun folder with a Bamboo Utility inside the applications folder. If you cannot locate it, you need to run the installation of the new driver. Then go to said folder, open the utility, select All User and Remover preferences. THEN select "Remove pen tablet". You will essentially remove the driver you just installed.
Then RESTART your computer, and proceed to re-install the same driver. Issue should be solved.
If not, contact Wacom customer support. 800-922-6613
That fixed it for me. Hope it makes sense.

My Tablet pen wont release, it acts like im clicking and holding


I'm just gonna pass on a email from Tech Support I recieved. 

"It sounds as though your pen has pressure in proximity. This is present when the tip sensor of your pen is stuck down causing the pen to think that it’s clicking before it’s even touching anything. What you may want to try would be to remove the nib from the tip end of the pen, it pulls straight out with a pair or tweezers or your teeth, and leave that out overnight with the pen left on its side. Place the nib back in the morning and if the issue persists then you may have a defective pen tip."

The rest consists of personal info and warranty advice so I'll leave it there.

Hi everyone, I have a Lenovo w700 with a built-in wacom tablet running Vista. http://gizmodo.com/5035828/lenovo-thinkpad-w700-has-a-built+in-wacom-tablet-and-professional-grade-screen The issue I have...


The tablet is not a touch-resistive tablet. It's actually using magnets to detect the pen (you can't really use other pens with it). It will always detect it when you hover because that's how it works.

When hovering the pen, it acts as if I am pressing


Sounds like you're either holding the stylis to close to the nib and bumping the nib, or, there is dirt in behind the nib causing it to not be fully released when you lift it.
The nib does not need to make contact with the artboard, just be depressed when in range of it.
The nibs can be pulled out and replaced - cheap as to buy new nibs. I've never pulled one out and refitted the same used nib, with a 'good' pair of tweezers you can try, but you risk squeezing the nib out of shape - worth a go?
