Pen dragging and skipping around the point where I press

I've had my tablet for more than a year now. It's a Wacom one, no idea what 'model' of it. I'm starting to have problems where if I press down (say, when drawing) the cursor will jerk away from the point I am pressing on and draw lines to parts I just drew. It's getting worse and it's really irritating! Sorry I couldn't describe it too well, and sorry if this was already asked somewhere.

PLEASE stop these jerks from posting nonsensical solutions for real problems posed by serious-minded people. You should not be posting these comments without vetting them first!

Is the surface of the tablet still smooth? i've found that my intuos 3 tablet is de-laminating in spots and wherever that has happened the table is no longer reponsive.

Re: Pen dragging and skipping around the point where I...

I have this problem as well - my Intuos2 is about 5 years old.
I have a vertical band all the way down the tablet, about 50 pixels wide, that is non-functional – the pen skips over the area – a real problem for drawing or grabbing files. any heard of this, and is it repairable????

Sometimes the grip pen get stucked because of dust or dirt, or the tip needs to be replaced. Clean the tip chamber or use a new one.

Wacom tablet won't recognize pen

Hmm. I've had a similar thing happen with my tablet. Have you tried removing the tablet pen from the list of tools in tablet preferences and then adding it to the list again before checking the 'About' section of the tablet pen set-up and clicking the 'diagnose' button there in? As that worked for me when my tablet pen was not working. The pen was recognized by the tablet after that.

Initial Delay of tablet pen

I had a similar problem with Vista which made the pen/cursor freeze just as the tip was placed on the tablet face.
The problem turned out to be a Vista setting.
I went to Start > Control Panel > Pen and Input Devices.
Then in the Pen Options tab highlight the "Press and Hold" pen action and then press the "Settings..." button. In the dialog box that opens uncheck the "Enable press and hold for right-clicking" check box. Hit "OK".
Worked for me.

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!
