Mimio pens stick

I have a Mimio DMA. The problem is that the pens stick inside the controller and stay on. It looks like the design is set up to release the switch when you lift the pen off the board but it doesn't work. This leaves stray marks on the screens and the Mimio mouse function is pretty much worthless.

I have had this problem with new pens that I bought separately, but not with the original ones that came with the Mimio. There are sites like this one:
http://www.independentproducts.co.uk/ip_mimio_xi_pens_4_pack_pens.htm
that sell (expensive) pens with the name 'Mimio' on that are specifically stated to be Mimio-compatible so they are probably OK. My original pens say 'Expo' on them and have bullet-shaped tips, and they work fine. The first lot of replacements that I bought also say 'Expo' and have square tips and slightly fatter bodies, and they stick.

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.

My Wacom Bamboo Pen only works when I have Bamboo Dock open, as soon as it is minimalized, the Pen stops working. Very annoying because i use it for my design work in Illustrator CS5. The Touch-part seems...


Go to the Control Panel, click on the Hardware and Sound link, click on the Bamboo link. Make sure you are on the "Pen" tab. Look on the bottom right for the "Tracking" section. Make sure the "Pen Mode" is selected. Click on the "Details" button, make sure "Portions" is not selected in any of the sections.
If you can't fix it in this section, then your best bet is to re-install.

Wacom Pen Pressure issues


Try hitting the pen head into your hand 5 times. Do the same with the eraser ( do it pretty hard but not too hard. I hurt my hand with the pen tip a LITTLE so you can gauge it by that). The humidity in the air causes the pen pressure to stick apparently. I had the same problem and this made it work. You should try and clean it too but if you don't want to take the pen apart this is the way to go. i hope this helps.

Is it possible to remove features from a tablet?


I have the bamboo fun pen also. I am currently running Windows Vista 64bit home and have the same problem. I fixed mine by going into the control options > Tablet PC Settings > Other > Go to Pen and Input Devices > Settings (Under Pen Options) Then I clicked at the top Where it states "Enable press and hold for Right-clicking". I disabled that and my pen works with no holding for the right click. I can make scratch marks all day! Hope this helps you too.

Intuous pen "sticking"


Take out the "nib" and whack it on your desk (or drop it on the floor from 3 feet up). It re-seats the "nib" sensor when it's stuck. If this doesn't work, then the sensor may be too damaged.

My Pen Doesn't Work


"Mine did this, too. I twisted the bottom half a few times (trying to take it apart) and it started working normally again."

I just wanted to reaffirm that twisting the eraser end 5-6 times solved the problem for me. Most likely it's not a cure-all, but another suggestion to try out.
