    I also mention that my tablet is only about half a year old, and has never experienced any other difficulties. The pen is just fine, and I never even bumped my device onto anything. I tried plugging it in to other ports--nothing. I tried rebooting and using other methods provided as solutions to other tablet issues, but no dice.

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

I did find this for a Graphire wireless:

SOURCE: Tablet not working

Hi know this is some months on but have just read your article! If you haven't solved this problem it may be something to do with having the incorrect driver. You could look up Wacom's website as they detail driver codes in relation to the Model No. of the tablet. 
Also you might try disconnecting your usb cable after booting your mac, I've noticed myself that sometimes my tablet and mouse is not recognised (I'm using OSX10.4.9 on a G5 dual) but after unplugging the USB cable and plugging it back in it works fine, so this may be just some kind of bug that hasn't been fully addressed in the actual driver software itself? Anyway I hope this helps in some way, good luck!

SOURCE: My Tablet pen wont release, it acts like im clicking and holding

I'm just gonna pass on a email from Tech Support I recieved. 

"It sounds as though your pen has pressure in proximity. This is present when the tip sensor of your pen is stuck down causing the pen to think that it’s clicking before it’s even touching anything. What you may want to try would be to remove the nib from the tip end of the pen, it pulls straight out with a pair or tweezers or your teeth, and leave that out overnight with the pen left on its side. Place the nib back in the morning and if the issue persists then you may have a defective pen tip."

The rest consists of personal info and warranty advice so I'll leave it there.

Hi Bengref
Just talked to WACOM USA about a similar (but not exactly the same) problem with my Intuos 3. One of their procedures was;

go to the ALL Programs directory,

go to the the WACOM TABLET directory

open the WACOM Tablet Properties window

click on the "About" button

while holding down the CTRL key, click on the "Diagnose" button

click on the "recalibrate" button

Another procedure

go to the All Programs Directory

go to the WACOM Tablet Directory

click on the :WACOM Table Preference File Utility"

Under "My Preferences" click on remove

Good Luck

My daughter's RCA tablet will not turn on. what can i do?

Two possibilities:

If you can turn on the table when plugged in to the charger, and it dies soon after unplugging it, the tablet's battery may need replacement.
2.- The other possibility is that the tablet is dead...

Recently I had a breaker go out while my Wacom was plugged in.

I think that when your "Breaker" "Tripped" the resultant "Power Spike" probably "Spiked" your tablet. This is a very common event. possibly fixable. probably just the Power Supply. but with "Spikes" the damage done can be catastrophic, as we call it.

My Zen will not be dected, and half the time blue light wil flash

Hi David,

I just fixed mine about two minutes ago - just plug it into your computer. Even if it does not recognise it, it should eventually turn on again. From there you should be able to reboot it. Mine is fine now.

Phillips go gear SA5125 mp3 player

Make sure you are using the original USB cable that came supplied with the GoGear, and then try the volume + method again. If the volume + method doesn't work, then there is a problem with the USB port recognziing the device being plugged in - or, the player was physically damaged.
