    i believe that it is coming out of my speakers. but, i have turned the sound off in my tablet and pen options...

    i am working in windows vista and when i turn my mian volume down the clicking noise does go away. but, i want to hear other sounds from my computer so turning of the volume only helps me in the short term:(

    Thanks! I figured out that the problem was actually from either corel painter or the nik color effects cds that came with the tablet.. I had unclicked the clicking sound from the beginning and it was still happening. I decided to uninstall both of those programs to see if they were effacting this and lo and behold it went away! Thanks for all of your time and help, it was greatly appreciated!

    ok, merrum...

    i have a wacom tablet, but have no sound options in mine... and i've had a look through the sounds available in the windows xp control panel, but i need to know what your os is... mac, windows xp- vista- 2000, linux......?

    to be sure where the clicking is coming from, turn the sound on your computer's speakers completely off, either by silencing the volume or by physically turning the speakers off, to see if this noise persists, if so, we'll try some troubleshooting.

    hi merrum

    i'm sorry, i don't understand exactly where the sound is coming from, is it the pen itself or is it coming out of your speakers?

Ok... so i've just been fiddling around with my wacom settings... and i noticed that while i didn't see any sound options when i go to the wacom tablet settings through the windows control panel, i do have them in the pen office program... i had the sound box ticked, so i just unticked it...

    even when it was ticked, i didn't notice any clicking noises, so i'm guessing you need to go into the windows sound and audio settings in the control panel... you can choose which sounds you want to hear, or not in the sounds tab... now that's in xp... i think it's pretty much the same in vista, but if you can't find it, let me know and i'll turn on my son's laptop and have a browse through to see where you have to go.

    let me know if you need more help with this.

    you're welcome, Maryam... looks like you found your solution... if you still want to use those programs, you can probably find some settings to turn that sound of, as i found in the penoffice. :-)

    happy click-free photo-shopping!

Wacom tablet pen right click always active.

I'm having this same problem with my original Graphire (ET), with a replacement pen that's less than two years old.
I don't think it's a driver issue, based on the indicator light on the tablet itself. It turns green like it's detecting a click when either end of the pen is brought near the tablet. To me, that suggests an issue with the pen hardware. The mouse has no such problem.
I'd be very interested if anyone has a solution to this.

I didn't see anything specific for a Graphire A5 or a Graphire Bluetooth.

I did find this for a Graphire wireless:

There were some drivers on this page that were dated April of 2008. They could have been updated since your purchase

Driver don´t work (MacOSX Leopard

Here are the steps that you need to take to fix your issue:

1. Uninstall the current Wacom driver via the Macintosh HD on your desktop--->go into the Applications folder and then the Pen Tablet folder and click on "remove tablet". Once you have done the removal you will want to run a "repair disk permissions on your Macintosh HD.

2. The repair disk permissions can be done via the utilities folder on your Mac HD. Go to "disk utility" and then run it. In that program select the Mac HD and choose "repair disk permissions".

3. After that is completed you will get a message that says permissions repair complete!
At this time you will want to reboot your computer.

4. After rebooting you will want to go and install the latest driver from Wacom's website, The most current driver is 5.08-2 for the Graphire 3 tablet.

That should do it!

Tablet Driver

Try this:

Type: services.msc
Scroll down to TabletService
Right click>Properties>Log On tab
Is service disabled? If so, enable it and I think that will solve your problem.

I had the same problem you described after I disabled this service.

Pen is always drawing

Dear All,

I have experienced the same problems in the aforementioned cases about the pen randomly highlighting things on the desktop/making selections, as well as loss of double tapping feature for double clicking. For my situation, I am pleased to say that I've managed to resolve the problem it may or may not help but worth a try. The solution:
(1) go to control panel and open up the 'Pen Tablet' icon,
(2) under 'Tracking' select 'Pen Mode' and click on 'Details' tab,
(3) under 'Screen Area' select 'Monitor' (*IMPORTANT*)
(* other settings I have are: 'unchecked' force proportions, 'Tablet Area' set to 'full', number of monitors under 'Screen Area' set to 1)
Following the above steps should remedy the problem. It worked for me. I hope it proves useful to you as well.

Kindest regards,

Inking pen

Hi, to use a graphics tablet all you need to do is connect the tablet to the pc usually USB Connection. and put the battery in the pen and it should work automatically by pressing the tip of the pen on the tablet, ie should work like a mouse. if your using windows xp or windows vista. Hope thats what you mean.. John
