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:

My mp510 misses lines after cleaning and deep cleaning....HELP! Gail


This worked for me a few times so far - i saw a picture guide on e-how but I can't find it at the moment.
Open the printer cover
Take out the printer cartridges, keep them upside down and put some sticky tape or the original orange seals that come with the cartridges over the outlet holes, then turn them back.
Remove the printhead by lifting up the grey lever and taking out the black printhead (it's the black half-box with 4 slots in it and the ink-filters at the bottom). Soak the box in cleaning solution overnight to dissolve the dried ink. Shake it off until it's dry and reload it all. Now try it.
If it's still got lines, it's a bit more of a hassle. Repeat the steps above, but you'll need to find a pen barrel to fit over the filters - one for the black and one for the colours, or cut them to size. Rinse the print-head in water, then submerge the print head half-way in water, fit one pen-barrel over the black filter and suck water in (it's not easy) until the water is clear. Do the same for each of the others with the other pen. Dry the print head by shaking it (don't use tissue - you can use a hairdryer) and re-install the whole lot. It's worked twice for me now. Try not to let the ink run dry which will help.

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...
