Question about Wacom (PTZ930AC) Graphic Tablet
Installed Wacom MTE-450A and can't scan from OfficeJet L7590 into Acrobat Pro 9 or Photoshop CS3. Get error message that reads: hpqscnvw has stopped working. Problem Event Name: APPCRASH
Application Name: hpqscnvw.exe
Make sure you have no old Wacom drivers installed in your applications folder. If you do, then you will need to uninstall each driver via the "remove tablet" utility.

OK, I found the problem -- if you open photoshop with the mouse (whether it be through the quicklaunch bar, start menu, or desktop icon), the pressure sensitivity doesn't work. If you open it with the stylus or function button (I have a function button mapped for photoshop now because of this, since there's no icon on my tablet's display with how I have my display set up) the pressure sensitivity works fine.
A quick KIND of fix, but until Adobe actually does something about it, this is probably the easiest way to do it.

This has happened to me before, and I don't know any surefire way to fix it, but this usually helps--
First, try closing down photoshop and reopening it. Then the pressure should work.
If that doesn't work, do it over again but when you start drawing, try doing so on a new file. If it's STILL not working, my last suggestion is restarting the computer and trying again. I can usually get it working, but I'm not sure how exactly it happens XD;

Try holding down whichever key on the keyboard that seems to be the culprit and then click with your tablet mouse. I used to have this problem with my bamboo and I'm using Mac. For me, it was like the control button was being held down when I'd let the computer idle for a long time.

I was having the same problems, it only occurred when i updated the tablet driver to v. 5.2.1-6. So i've downgraded to the one that came with my graphire3 (tablet driver v. 5.2.0) ...hope this helps

SOURCE: wacom babmboo pen does not work
If the eraser part of your pen works but the business-end doesn't, this fix may be for you. Since the only option is to replace the whole pen, it's worth the try. The interesting part: There is no "live" powered electronics in the pen (it is a simple L-C circuit for you tech-weenies out there) - truly the only way to make the pen not work is to drop it and knock it out of adjustment, use it as a crude paper punch, or get it soaked with some type of fluid such as coffee, beer or soda. The pen is an excellent design is designed to just eventually wear out. My pen is 10 years old and still looks new.
I needed a small jeweler's screwdriver for this fix (1 mm to 1.2 mm width). Carefully remove the rocker switch from the pen; it just pulls out. Don't lose it. See the image below: there is an itsy bitsy slotted screw-like device in the center (it's a tuning capacitor). For its location, follow the white arrow in the picture I've attached. Prior to turning, memorize where the slot-head points (there's a tiny triangle on it), and if possible, use a fine point sharpie to mark the screw before you adjust it. It is not a "screw" per se, but an adjustable capacitor and part of the tuned circuit.
The adjustment: Place the pen as normal on the tablet and "tweak" the capacitor by a small 1/16 or 1/8 turn in either direction until the pen reacts. If it has gotten out of "resonance" this tweak should kick it back in.
