How to take apart Intuos pen

Somehow, I have managed to get a whole lot of ink stuck in the barrel of my Intuos pen (I think it happened when a pen leaked over it). I need to take it apart somehow to clean it out but there doesn't seem to be any screws or such? Anyone know how to do this?

Ok, after my wife washed mine in my jeans, i really desperate and decided that I had nothing to lose. I searched all over the web for ways to do this and nothing!!!! So today I grew a pair and tried something and low and behold... so anyway. 

*!*!*!* Remove the rubber grip and button first (untwist tip cap and remove threaded section, slip fingernail under top edge of button and pop it straight up and off, slide rubber grip off towards point *just in case*) Grasp your pen in both hands with the tip facing to the left left hand should be grasped covering  the tip and ONLY the section that has the recessed barrel with the raised button ridge. Right hand should be grasped just off of the first diameter reduction from the right (ie. where the just before the pen gets thinner) and covering the eraser (unless you have really small hands) CAREFULLY but firmly pull the two halves of the pen apart from each other !**!*!DO NOT TWIST THE PEN!!!! the pen should come apart without a problem and now you have access to the inner goodness of the Wacom Intuos Pen
Note: when putting the pen back together, be gentle and place the board in the eraser side first, if it doesn't push the eraser tip up, twist it slowly till it slides all the way in (be sure to try to leave a tiny space for eraser play.) Twist the pen (board and eraser cap end) until you can see the two receptors for the buttons, slide the tip end cap on and press firmly until the caps seat together and the holes line up for the switch. slip the rubber cover back on, twist on the threaded tip and clip the button back on, that should do it, Hope this helps!

    there is a tiny tiny spring in the eraser cap, though not integral for operation, if lost your eraser cap wont spring back BE CAREFULL

Where can i get a wacom bamboo tablet?


You can buy them new from places like Amazon or directly from Wacom. Just to confuse you more-- it used to be Bamboo, Intuos, and Cintiq. Now the entry level tablets are the Intuos, the mid-level has become the Intuos Pro, and then the Cintiq.

You may have an issue with the drivers. If you're using the drivers on the CD, try updating to the latest drivers:

If you're using the latest drivers and the issue persists, try rolling back your drivers to the previous release:

I need help! My intuos 3 pen is wacking out! it is over selecting things... how do i fix this? my mouse is not doing it, but the pen is. I took it apart and cleaned it...which seemed to help a little...but...


Soooo many people have this problem. Try hitting the pen head into your palm and do the same with the eraser. This worked for me. Something about the humidity and making the pressure thing in the pen stick. I hope this helps.

Hi, I have had my tablet for over a year now and its been working great but today i plugged it in and it seems as though the pen is stuck on the "select" mode. do i need a new pen or is there a quick fix?


Hey! I found your post searching for solutions to the same problem. My pen was stuck in select mode since i shipped it to NZ with me, held snug in what i thought was a perfectly fitting box. So...an impact or prolonged pressing of the nib can cause this problem then! Anyway, found this page with perfect instructions on how to take apart the pen (my pen is a little different (newer?) but comes apart just the same) http://abiamy.com/abiyasablogs/2008/04/06/fixing-a-broken-wacom-pen/comment-page-1/#comments I took the pen apart and messed about with it (gently) for a while. After many unsuccessful messes, it finally started working again.
I think you just need to let the pressure sensor (at the inward end of the nib) pop back out again. You can probably do this by just pulling the nib out. Wacom say you can do that with pliers without taking the rest of the pen apart. I'm afraid i cannot say what i specifically did to get the pen to work, maybe it just needs time without anything in the way.
I'm sorry this was a lot of babble without a definite answer, but have a go.
Good luck! Adam

I think I have figured it out, I believe it is caused by interference from the computer (probably the hdd). try moving the tablet further away from your tower or laptop.. Mine has to be about 12 inches away to be steady.. I use a Lenovo T61p...
