Question about Wacom Bamboo Fun Medium (CTE650S)

1 Answer

Cursor not aligned with monitor

Hello.

I am new to wacom and have been working with a medium bamboo fun tablet for the last few weeks. However, when plugginh it in just a moment ago, I experienced an odd and rather frustrating anomaly. I ran my pen along my tablet only to find that the cursor was several inches off, vertically, to the left. Instead of traveling to the left border of my monitor, it had a good three inches difference. When I slid the pen to the otherside (right), it stopped at the edge of the screen before I reached the border of my tablet. It was as if the tablet had somehow miss-aligned itself to the right of my actual monitor, leaving the rest off-screen. The distance which it seemed miss-aligned sporadically changes, sometimes being very near normal while other times only letting the cursor travel across about two inches on the right - the rest being off screen.

I am on a laptop (so screen might be a better term), my computer runs windows vista, and this didn't begin when I started a program, if any of this helps.

Any input or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not familiar with the utility software that comes with the bamboo, myself, but I am using the Intuos3, just a bigger version.
Have a look at Start>Programs>Wacom>Tablet Properties
In here you will find all sorts of seetings and customisable features.
Your looking for 'Tablet' then 'Mapping' and maybe set for 'Full Screen' - I'm guessing it's set on portion.

Let us know if this helps - if not, we'll delve deeper

    I've got a similar problem: my Wacom Bamboo Pen tablet was working perfectly, until I turned off my computer for the night. When I next turned it on, the tablet appears to be misaligned, or at least only confined to a small portion of the screen, but when I check the properties, everything is in order. The only way I've managed to fix this is to uninstall it completely, and then reinstall it. I don't want to have to do this every time I want to use it! Please help? :(

SOURCE: Wacom Bamboo Fun Pen isnt working correct

I think you dropped the pen on its tip and broke the little ferrite sensing core.  You can try to repair it by gluing the core back together - it worked for me.  For detailed instructions on how to do it, go here: http://wishidknownthat.blogspot.com/2009/04/fixing-wacom-bamboo-pen.html  or you can try to swap the core for the eraser and the tip (more involved - you would need to be very good with a soldering iron to attempt this).  Either way - it's unfortunate that the pen is so fragile and that the user manual doesn't really warn you of this.
Good luck!

When was it last working?
Well first, try restarting the Bamboo program or restarting your system. It has more than one program that runs at the same time. For example, one program may be the one to control the movements and another may be there to help manage your bamboo device.
Second, installing the bamboo drivers and software may help. Registry can be edited, but that can lead to more issues.
Goodluck! :)

It may be the USB port you're plugging into going bad. Try switching to plugging into a different USB port and see if that fixes the problem. If it doesn't it may be something faulty in the tablet itself and will still be covered by the manufacturer's warrenty. From my experience with Wacom, they're very prompt in fixing or replacing bad tablets.

Bamboo Fun won't work w/ provided software


Hello,

I had the same problem when I got my laptop (Vista OS). The solution is to update the new driver for your bamboo. They are out of date so you need to go here: http://www.wacom.com/downloads/driver-detail.php?id=196 Updated @ Apr. 9, 2009

This update should allow Vista to find it.

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.
