My pen works great. When I need both hands I put it in its holder and type on the keyboard. When I pick the pen back up again the wacom tablet will not respond to it.
The problem seems to be that I have to bring the pen back on the wacom tablet at roughly the same area it left the wacom tablet from. But this seem kind of ridiculous and wastes a lot of my time trying to get the pen to reappear as my mouse.
Anyone know why I am having this problem? Is this normal? Is there a fix?

Do you have the bobbin holder threaded right? You have to put the bobbin into the holder and follow the thread path, then pull it up to the top and turn the needle by hand until the thread picks up the bobbin thread. then pull both threads up and to the back then slide your bobbin plate back into the machine and you are ready to sew. Hopes this helps. wish I could draw you a picture.
restore in control panel, use the utitlity system restore, put the last date that you know was working good. and ready. However you must test the keyboard in another computer will be a great idea. God bless you
check to make sure that the needle was put into the needle holder correctly all the way up into the needle holder--flat side of the needle to the back side of the machine if the machine still doesn't up the bobbin thread then it's possible that when the needle broke that it caused the machine to go out of time which means it has to be retime at a sewing machine shop
I found out that if you remove the front filter holder, tip vacuum back and look down inside. Sometimes there is hair caught back in there and you won't get suction. I had to use something long, knife, very long type tweezers, to pull all the hair out. Worked great after that. About half way through vacuuming I will stop and remove the foam rubber filter and clean it. Oh yea, you will have to use a flashlight to look down inside to see all the hair caught behind the foam rubber filter cup.
If you have a local ecology center or pick your part your should be able to pick them up there, most major manufacturers use the same lighting components like this in similar car and truck lines. Usually a buck to gain entry and the parts are very reasonable. You can splice the replacements in with crimp type electrical connectors.
I have a Gateway CX2724 and previously had another Gateway tablet (model I don't remember) but they both look alike and use the same pens. I've had 3 pens and they all periodically stop working. When one stops, I pick up another pen and work with it so that makes me think the problem has more to do with the pen. (They have all died and later come alive.) Sometimes though I can't find the extra pen and have resorted to removing the working pen tip / nib and reinserting it very snugly after wiping off the shaft. The nib is held in merely by friction. You can remove it by pinching its little tip between your fingernails and pulling it straight out. I wipe off the shaft and put it snugly back in. Sometimes I don't take it out, but just press it harder into the pen by pushing it firmly onto a padded surface (so that the tip doesn't deform.) Usually one of these "treatments" works. I know that extra nibs are available with the pen. There must be some reason that the manufacturer thinks they may need to be replaced periodically. But I've never seen any documentation on this.
