Question about Genius MousePen 8x6 (MOUSEPEN8X6)

Pen died I've had the tablet for about three months but now the pen does not work. The tablet recognises it, but it doesn't move. I tried changing the battery multiple times, nothing. Any hope?

Re: pen died

Check what USB port your tablet is hooked up to... My brand-new tablet's pen wasn't responding; the light would flicker when I clicked the barrel buttons, but no movement. So I took it out of the front USB port it had been in and put it in the back, and now it's back to working fine.

Re: pen died

Have a look inside the "Pen" I have found that sometimes the fine wires inside break of where they are soldered to the sensor. Also check the Contacts give 'em a good clean & re-tension them. In the ones I have seen the Sensor is just a coil of wire wound on a piece of ferrite ring. Very simple indeed.

My guess is that the pen just needs the batteries replaced. You only change the tip when it wears out from drawing a lot. there sould be some software that lets you change the button configuration on the pen. look on the products webpage. should find some software to help you out

Tablet pen's cursor skips around in 3 places?

The cursor skipping in three places is apparently caused by the connectors inside the tablet getting dirty or corroded.
Fortunately, you can easily fix this problem yourself! All you need to do is unscrew the back of your tablet, unplug the connectors and clean them with a q-tip dipped in alcohol.
There is a video on YouTube that shows you step-by-step how to do it(it's easy!).
It's called: Howto fix dead areas on any graphics tablet and it's posted by riodroid.
Here's a link to it:

Hope this helps!

When I'm using Photoshop CS4 with my Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet, the screen tracking for the tablet only works for half the tablet. This happens with everything else as well, not just Photoshop...

Go to Control Panel, and open bamboo properties. There you select the "pen" tab. In the pen tab you will see tracking. Select pen mode and details. You can map the pad there. After mapping pen mode try it in mouse mode as well. Best of luck!

Pen not working properly all of a sudden

Try reinstalling it, And also change the battery in it, but it has to be the same kind. And go to your settings and change the sensory thingie, like if it says 'Light' And yours is verry clost to that, then move it to 'Heavy' And then It will do it better and wont do that when you move your mouse of the screen.

Tablet not recognizing pen unless pressing down with it.

Hi, i browsed the Net in three languages to find the solution for this problem but nothing helped, then, accidentally, i bumped into the solution that helped me. I tried everything the same way you did but nothing helped. Since I use the russian version of Windows I do not know how these options might be named in english, but I think you'll understand. In Control Panel there is, as you know, the setup for pen and tablet input (with a picture of a pen) - in it there is a setup for Gestures (the middle one) - in it i disabled the gestures a long time ago. But today i tried turning it ON and went for training of these gestures (the option in blue letters at the very bottom) - and during the training my pen started hovering normally again after half a month of this problem. So I left the gestures enabled after completing the training and it still works fine. Hope it helps you,

Pen stuck on click?

This is exactly whats happening with mine! I got the tablet from a friend, and I ordered a new pen because hers had died, which was why she was giving it to me. I've only had it for a month or so. A solution to this would be wonderful.
