Bamboo capture pen problem

Hi, I have this tablet for almost 6 month and its been working great. Almost 5 days ago the pen start acting weird when I put the pen and start retouching the cursor on the screen goes crazy even though the touch part of the tablet still working but the pen doesn't. I tried unistalling the drivers also opening the pen and see if the cables are right... nothing happens and the cursor on the screen goes crazy when I start using the pen. Anybody had a similar problem?

Make sure the tablet is set to "Pen Mode". It seems to do this on "Mouse Mode"...

SOURCE: Wacom Tablet overly sensitive

i had the exact same problems with my graphire4 pen.
take a tool to remove the tip of the pen. just blow inside the pen, put the tip back and press it in back but not too hard. works like magic!

SOURCE: My Wacom Bamboo Tablet wont detect my pen for some reason

Mabye you should buy a new pen. I had the exact same problem, but I bought a new pen and it worked perfectly. Call first and explain your problem to the website, and they should give you a new pen for free because of warrenty. Go to the WACOM website and look for the phone number in the top-right corner. That is all except to wait for your new pen that should arrive in two or three days tops.

SOURCE: 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.

Your tablet is set under the handwriting setting. Go to system preferences and select ink under hardware. Then turn off handwriting recognition.

Why has my bamboo pen and tablet become so sensitive?


I've had the intuos and it worked for years without incident. I have the bamboo and after only a few months it's having issues. WTF is up with that?! I've already changed the nub out once. It worked fine for a while but now... I have to double click to get it to release anything it grabs onto. As a graphic artist where precision is involved... that's very bad.

I think it's time to contact their customer service.

Pen Tablet Constently clicking.


if you are willing to throw $30 at the problem then you can get a new pen to replace it but otherwise i have not seen a fix for this problem yet. I am experiencing the same problem. But while this tablet is nice I might suggest to get a newer one that has more surface area that you can write on since you are already spending money. you could also take apart the pen and see if you can fix the inner parts. if you are feeling brave/ you know what you are doing/ you just want to see what the inside looks like.

Cannot open the Pen Tablet Properties page


I just fixed this by fiddling around with it. I use windows XP though.... Try going into your Start panel>Bamboo*or tablet name>bamboo preference file utility.
Then you will have a pop up come up that says to removed, backup, restore
Remove again or cancel. Press the second remove. It will restart your pen tablet.

Hope this helps you.

Pen Tip Not Working


I had the same problem and called Wacom Customer Care at 360-896-9833... I was informed that the pen was defective/ broken and needs to be replaced. This can be caused by being dropped and such. I was told that i should keep the pen on the stand or a eyeglasses case when not in use.
If your tablet is under a year old, warranty will cover the cost of the pen with proof of purchase. Other than that, you will need to purchase a new pen (about $29.99 from Wacom & online).

Unfortunate, but great to know.
