Question about Adesso CyberTablet 6400

Dropped the tablet and now the calibration is off

I accidentally knocked my tablet off the desk and onto the floor. Fearing damage, I tested the corners and edges of the tablet, but the cursor didn't reach all edges and corners of the screen in response and sometimes tapping the pen to the tablet doesn't get a response. I tried unplugging the Wacom and plugging it back in and restarting the computer, but it still doesn't cover the whole screen. My husband tried to re-seat the interior of the tablet, as he found it had come loose a little in the fall, but even that didn't work and the tablet still barely responds. Is there something else that can be done to recalibrate the tablet, or has some serious damage taken place? It only fell about two feet and my floor is carpeted, so the shock shouldn't have been that bad, could it?

Re: Dropped the tablet and now the calibration is off

I actually got rid of my Wacom Graphire several months ago but there is/was a *reset to defaults* button in the Wacom icon in the control panel. You probably want to open the *Pen* tab, ensure it?s in pen mode and click on the default button. That is supposed to reestablish the default tablet to screen mapping. If that doesn?t work then you want to do a Windows search for *tablet.dat*. The procedure says to delete the file and restart the computer which forces the program to rebuild it and reset everything to the factory defaults. Just because I?m cautious I would rename the file to *tablet.dat-old* or something similar just in case something goes really wrong. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.

No Calibration for Wacom Pen

Sounds like your pen has problems, after so many attempts to calibrate the pen fail your tablet will automatically shut that feature off. I would suggest getting a new pen if possible and recalibrate it. The wire or fiber optic cable, which ever it has is bad to break where it bends down into the pen. Also the sensor in the end of the pen could have gone bad. I would contact the manafacturer on it and see what their tech's advise.

Pen keeps drawing when I lift it off tablet

This problem commonly occurs due to a stuck "nib" sensor (the sensor that detects pen pressure).

Take out the "nib" (important, so the sensor isn't damaged further) and whack the pen 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 after multiple attempts, then the sensor may be too damaged.

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.

Good luck!magriv_0.jpg
