Question about Wacom Stylus Pen for Graphire4

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.

    After all this time, I finally found my own solution. The pen kept getting worse. It was taking anywhere from 2-20 seconds to release from the last activity. I had to remember to hold the pen very still over the last point of contact until the Photoshop history registered the last activity. If I was selecting an area, and moved the pen, the selection area would have all sorts of weird angles added to the desired area. If drawing with the brush tool, I would get streaks wherever the pen was hovering over the tablet. Frustrating, time-consuming, aggravating.
    I tried every suggestion posted, including replacing the nib (can't believe I actually found the original package from a few years ago), and it worked for a while, then started acting crazy again.
    I am in the middle of big drawing projects, and was ready to scream the other night. Every action took ten times longer than it should have as I waited for the pen to release. I finally pulled the nib out with needlenose pliers, rubbed it, replaced it. No change. Pulled it out again and, this time, blew into the nib hole in the pen a couple of times before replacing it. I hesitate writing this, dare I jinx it, but the pen has been working perfectly ever since. Maybe there was some dust on the contacts?
    Anyway, it was an easy and inexpensive fix. Not sure it will always be the fix for every situation, but it's worth a try.
    Happily drawing with my pen again.

Where can i get a wacom bamboo tablet?


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.

Does the Wacom Intuos2 Classic Pen (xp 300e) work with the Wacom Bamboo CTL 470 tablet?


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.

Intuos 4 pen clicking while hovering


You may have an issue with the drivers. If you're using the drivers on the CD, try updating to the latest drivers:

If you're using the latest drivers and the issue persists, try rolling back your drivers to the previous release:

Intuos 3 Pen/Stylus suddenly stopped working (as in dead).


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.

Intuous pen "sticking"


Take out the "nib" and whack it on your desk (or drop it on the floor from 3 feet up). It re-seats the "nib" sensor when it's stuck. If this doesn't work, then the sensor may be too damaged.

Pen pressure and scale problems


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.

Wacom tablet stopped working, blue light on.


Hey I had this problem too with my Bamboo too, I'm not sure if it was anything I changed or whatever but either way the blue light was on but it wasn't registering the pen.

I found a way just minutes ago to fix it however!

Go into 'start', 'all programs', then look for 'pen tablet'. Hopefully you should have this. If not then download the latest driver for your tablet from the wacom website and that should install it.

Next choose 'pen tablet preference file utilty'. Then under 'my preferences' choose to remove. Bingo! All was well in the world again.

This worked for me so hopefully it will for some of you guys too! Good luck!
