Well when I have the pen even close to the tablet it makes a line where I dont need it. even putting pressure, lifting the pen a centimeter off the table to move it away it still makes a line.

Sounds like one of 2 problems. Either a driver issue (assuming a Windows environment) you may need to reinstall. Or else it is the application. Not all applications respond to the tablet the same way. On Ubuntu programs like Gimp and Pencil recognize the pressure sensitivity if the driver is configured correctly. MS Paint is not so good.

Why won't my wacom grip pen click when it touches the tablet instead of hovering and selecting text?


Have you tried pulling the nib out (the end bit you draw with)? It could be that something is sticking the nib further inside the pen than it should, which is telling the pen you are applying pressure. As far as I know there is a little spring inside the pen that the nib pushes on when you touch the pen to the tablet. Perhaps the spring is permanently squished in.

Pen keeps drawing when I lift it off tablet


This problem commonly occurs due to a stuck "nib" sensor (the sensor that detects pen pressure).

Take out the "nib" (important, so the sensor isn't damaged further) and whack the pen on your desk (or drop it on the floor from 3 feet up). It re-seats the "nib" sensor when it's stuck. If this doesn't work after multiple attempts, then the sensor may be too damaged.

Pen does not work


There is two sections of the pen. *I have the same tablet from what you described.* Twist and pull gently apart the two sides of the pen. It will open, and the battery pops out.

Pen Won't STOP Working


Well... I contacted Wacom support and the guy who write back recomended me to change the nib, to turn 3 times the eraser and to hit 4 times with the pen onto your palm hand...

Of course I didn´t do anything like that, I mean, what´s that??? An spell of some sort (or what)???

But what I did was the following (MAC-OS user):

-Enter to the pen tablet options on your preferences
-Switch the sensitiveness of the pen to the hardest
-Run an app that work´s best with your tablet and make some lines to check if at least in this mode the pen works
-Return to your tablet preferences and adjust at your best

I can´t explain why but my stylus is working fine again...
hope someone find this useful...

Tablet gone insane.


I'm from ukraine, sorry my english;

Reason:
Random clicks hapens becouse moving tip not return to the front. It continue to sent chaotic pressure messages. Some times, when you start to lift pen, tip start to resilient and we have ugly dots again.


Here is solution:
May be auto silicon oil wil help by reducing rubbing. Or harder spring will help?
I use little bit of plasticine. I push it under the tip. It prevent tip from resilienting. I have no problems, since i made this.

Good luck.
