Question about GTCO Roll-Up Digitizer, 30/36" (RU3036)

1 Answer

Digitizer isn't working properly

I am only able to use a certian portion of the digitizer. I've tried to mess with the control panel to change it so I could use the entire thing but it won't allow me. It's as if the digitizer is down scaled and it effects the scale as well.

Thank you

Select S01 on your superset menu first.
Check the mapping on the tablet driver control panel and turn it off. Test digitizer by moving your pen or cursor on the surface of the Digitizer and see if it will move the entire distance on your monitor, from the side to side and up and down. If this doesn't work, reset digitizer and try again.
This should be done with your application software closed. .

Make sure you get four beeps and only for beeps on power-up of digitizer. If your hear anything else the digitizer may have a hardware problem.

There is a simple way to test the digitizer through the computer by using the Hyperterminal program in the Accessories section.

Go to Accessories and then to Hyperterminal and open the program, set up a connection using 9600,n,8,1 communication parameters. On the digitizer select S12 on the superset menu and this will place the digitizer in the Point Mode, so every time you press the tip switch on your stylus when in the active area, you will get a coordinate. If you do get communication, then select S44 and this will place the digitizer in continuous mode and data will stream on the moniter.

You can then check the digitizer from for opens.

Drivers for GTCO, GTCOCalcomp or Calcomp digitizers for Windows XP, 7 and 8 can be downloaded from this url:

If you are trying to use your digitizer with AutoCad these drivers will not work and you will need to buy a driver from (They provide a 30 day free trial/demo) only works with serial RS232 interface. If your digitizer uses USB then you will need an interface kit for your specific digitizer to convert it to RS232. Most new digitizers come with USB, some have serial but require you to buy an interface kit. Contact your Digitizer supplier.

If your digitizer is a GTCO, GTCOCalcomp, Calcomp or Summagraphics brand, try these guys:
They do not know about any other brands. Wacom contact Wacom, Numonics contact Numonics. If you have Mutoh or Science Accessories or any other brand you are on your own as those manufacturers have all gone out of business as far as I know.

How to set up mouse on paydirt software, currently working in reverse

This could be a problem in Paydirt or the setup of the digitizer.
The Roll-Up II and Roll-Up III digitizer would allow you to change the orientation from one side to another,check this first.
The 0,0 point should be at the left hand side of the Digitizer where the metal housing and connections are.
There is a selection on the menu to change this,it looks like a double-headed arrow.

Relocated digitizer and when set up it peeps with message running self test no digitizer

Make sure the Digitizer is set to Superset Code S01, it may also be a bad cable,check all of the cables for wear.
These units do go bad sometimes,so you may have to call GTCO and have them look at it.
They shouldn't charge for an evaluation.

We can't activate the stylus. When our last estimatr was here everything worked fine. As soon as we went to use after he left we couldn't get to work. Any ideas?

Plug in the Digitizer and make sure you hear four (4) beeps and 4 beeps only.
Any other tone would indicate a problem.
If you get four beeps,try to set the Superset code to S01 by using the stylus,select S,then 0 then 1 and you should hear four beeps again.
If this doesn't work the pen may have gone bad,have an open wire inside the cable.
It would have to be replaced. If you have another transducer,pen or cursor,try those.

Wont recognize gtco digitizer on start up

First reset digitizer and make sure you hear four beeps and only four beeps.
Check the cables from the Quikruler to the interface module, make sure they are in good condition, no cuts, breaks missing pins on connector.
Check cables from interface module to digitizer. A good way to check for an intermittent problem is to bend the cable at different points and check the display on the Quikruler to see if has reset.

Select S01 on the superset code with your stylus or cursor. You get get four sucess tones (beeps).

If none of this works check the firmware version on the digitizer, some J2.0 firmware may become corrupted. When the firmware becomes corrupted, you will hear three(3) medium tones on power-up.
If this is happening it will have to be serviced by GTCO.
