Wacom Intuous 2 stylus continues action after lifting
After years of using my Wacom pen with an Intuos 2 tablet, the pen is suddenly acting strange. When I lift the pen from the tablet, the action continues.
If I am drawing with the brush in Photoshop, it leaves thin lines in the direction of the lift. If I am moving a picture box in Adobe InDesign, the box shifts as I lift the pen. If I am moving the slider on a window, it shifts further as I lift the pen.
At the same time, it is suddenly requiring more pressure to select a different window among the many open on my screen, or to perform other tasks.
I tried making changes on the Wacom utility, to no avail. Taking the pen apart and putting it back together didn't help either.
As I do a lot of drawing with the pen, this is not productive. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

You can buy them new from places like Amazon or directly from Wacom. Just to confuse you more-- it used to be Bamboo, Intuos, and Cintiq. Now the entry level tablets are the Intuos, the mid-level has become the Intuos Pro, and then the Cintiq.
From what I read on Wacom's site, they are NOT compatible.
The Bamboo use a stylus that is different than the nib pens that the Intuos use. The stylus for the Bamboo is more like the stylus you can purchase for smart phones. The Intuos pens are pressure sensitive and have different nibs you can use for different effects and feel. You can go to their website and look for compatible pens and stylus' for your specific tablet.
Will the tablet work with the mouse? If it does not, is not working is the blue LED light on. If the LED is not working try another usb port. If the mouse works go into the Wacom tablet properties from the start menu. Select the grip pen from the tools. Click on the default button to restore the stylus to factory settings. When you press the pen you should see the pressure scale rise. You can also test the eraser pressure. You could also replace the stylus tip to see if that works. From the Wacom site you can order a new stylus or tips if it is found defective.
I also use Intuos 3 tablet, did you already try replacing the tip and reconfiguring the pen to the screen? You can find this in the driver software, it synchronizes the pen and tablet. If you already tried that, does the problem only occur in Photoshop? Also, check your brush preferences, you can go back to your default settings and see. If talking to Wacom fails, you might have a bad pen or tablet.
