Graphire 3 tablet pen troubles

About a month ago my tablet pen started acting very weird. It would 'write' or 'highlight' things without even touching the tablet itself and without my consent. I thought it was either the tablet or the tablet pen but... When I used the mouse on the tablet, it works just fine. And my tablet pen was missing the clickable button on it so I figured I just needed to buy a new one... I did and I got it today but the same problem arises. I can't use it, much less draw with it if I can't control when it writes or not... I hope that makes sense. I don't know what the problem could be exactly so I'm hoping there's a way to fix this... Thank you for your help in advance.

    I have the same problem :( Sometimes it responds correctly for less than a minute and goes back to dragging the mouse. It's very frustrating.

My Genius Easypen i405X tablet keeps clicking when I hover with pen


Hello :) we have the same problem regarding the same brand and product. But I got mine working just a while ago.
Try this: Control Panel>Pen and Touch
under pen options, there should be settings regarding the pen buttons. Unclick the "use the pen button as a right-click equivalent"
hope this helps though although it's been a year XD

Wacom tablet pen right click always active.


I'm having this same problem with my original Graphire (ET), with a replacement pen that's less than two years old.
I don't think it's a driver issue, based on the indicator light on the tablet itself. It turns green like it's detecting a click when either end of the pen is brought near the tablet. To me, that suggests an issue with the pen hardware. The mouse has no such problem.
I'd be very interested if anyone has a solution to this.

My wacom graphire 4 stylus is malfunctioning


In the Control Panel for the pen, hold down CTRL (PC) or ALT (Mac) and click on the About button to open the diagnostic screen. Look at the value for "Pressure" on the right hand side - this should stay at 0 until the pen is brought into contact with the tablet.
If it shows a high value (above 50), then you pen may be defective and, if in warranty, will be replaced. A half hour ago, my pen gave a value of 220 and, being well out of warranty, cannot be replaced for free. However, it now gives a value of 0 and works perfectly. The solution? I bashed it (side on) on the table top and against the flat of my hand for about 10 minutes as per a low-tech solution on the Wacom-Europe forum. With each series of smacks, the pressure fell toward 0. If you can't get it below about 60, it may still be okay as there is a pressure offset control in the diagnostic panel that goes up to 59.
Good luck! Alastair.

My pen cursor jumps all over the place


You may have an issue with the Graphire pen. Try plugging the tablet into another computer and see if the pen does the same thing there. If it behaves the same way on another computer then you need a new pen from Wacom.

Wacom Graphire Bluetooth stopped working


I didn't see anything specific for a Graphire A5 or a Graphire Bluetooth.

I did find this for a Graphire wireless:

There were some drivers on this page that were dated April of 2008. They could have been updated since your purchase

Ugh, tablet pen issue


well, i'd suggest 3 things
  1. restart your computer, see if that works
  2. unhook your tablet and re-hook it in
  3. check to see if the tablet might've been broken or injured
something like this happened to me once
and thats the stuff I did

Pen is always drawing


Dear All,

I have experienced the same problems in the aforementioned cases about the pen randomly highlighting things on the desktop/making selections, as well as loss of double tapping feature for double clicking. For my situation, I am pleased to say that I've managed to resolve the problem it may or may not help but worth a try. The solution:
(1) go to control panel and open up the 'Pen Tablet' icon,
(2) under 'Tracking' select 'Pen Mode' and click on 'Details' tab,
(3) under 'Screen Area' select 'Monitor' (*IMPORTANT*)
(* other settings I have are: 'unchecked' force proportions, 'Tablet Area' set to 'full', number of monitors under 'Screen Area' set to 1)
Following the above steps should remedy the problem. It worked for me. I hope it proves useful to you as well.

Kindest regards,
Jon
