Graphire4 Pen Problem

When i put my pen near the tablet, the light turns green a little higher up than it did when i originally bought it. Also the cursor moves normally but it drags a box around with it ( when i am on the desktop etc ). If I am in photoshop it will draw the line even if i hover above the pad instead of letting me move my cursor to the spot then press my pen down. Any way to fix this?

Wacom CTE-440 Graphire4 tablet is drawing when I don't want it to

Ok so I called costumer service because mine was doing the same thing. Apparently the pressure sensor in the pen is stuck down. What you do is remove the pen tip with tweezers, blow in the open end of pen, then tap the pen (open end down) in a table to get any debris out of there. Then just put the tip back in and give it a try. That did the trick for me. Hope this helps.

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.

My pen cursor jumps all over the place

You may have an issue with the Graphire pen. Try plugging the tablet into another computer and see if the pen does the same thing there. If it behaves the same way on another computer then you need a new pen from Wacom.

Pen sensor problems

you take out the nib by using a pair of tweezers or a nail clipper but, (now this is what happened to me) is your tablet plugged straight into your computer OR into a usb ADAPTER as if you do that, sometimes it completely mucks things up. make sure it goes straight into your computer as when i did this my tablet was fine

Graphire4 Tablet not reading pen

If you are on a Windows Vista machine, you need to delete your preference files for your tablet driver. The issue you are experiencing is likely due to a corrupt prefs file, which in my case was what caused the problems specifically in photoshop.
