Question about Wacom Intuos3 4x5

Open Question

Pen won't work

The cursor appears on the screen when I use the pen, but the pen does not draw or control anything. Looked through troubleshooting, tried recalibrating, nothing seems to affect this problem. Also the proportion of the pad to the screen seems off. Going across the entire screen only goes across half of the pad. Tablet is set on whole screen. I noticed this problem after downloading an update for bluetooth. I have mac 10.5.7. I didn't drop the pen or anything. Tried changing nibs.

SOURCE: pen tool not actually drawing

I also solved the problem by installing the driver from the website. The trick was to uninstall the old driver first.

SOURCE: Pen keeps drawing when I lift it off tablet

The contact switch in the pen is likely stuck. Test it with an ohmmeter.

It may have moisture or contamination or broken contact mechanism.

If the pen is anywhere near the tablet, the digitizing of position continues and if switch thinks the pen is down due to failed switch, the drawing will continue.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Wacom Bamboo Fun Tablet-Mac. Yellow box pops up under pen cursor.

Your tablet is set under the handwriting setting. Go to system preferences and select ink under hardware. Then turn off handwriting recognition.

SOURCE: 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.

Is it possible to remove features from a tablet?


I have the bamboo fun pen also. I am currently running Windows Vista 64bit home and have the same problem. I fixed mine by going into the control options > Tablet PC Settings > Other > Go to Pen and Input Devices > Settings (Under Pen Options) Then I clicked at the top Where it states "Enable press and hold for Right-clicking". I disabled that and my pen works with no holding for the right click. I can make scratch marks all day! Hope this helps you too.

Double-Cursor to Obsolete


Is this driver certified for Vista? If it worked partially before and fails completely now, roll back to the previous driver. Compatibility is the key.

My cursor was smooth and easy to draw with, but now it's all shaky and won't draw well!


the latest drivers have 2 modes...

1 open the driver control panel
2 at the top of the window double click the intuos3 tablet that is giving you problems
3 choose standard mode instead of recognition data

... this is at least what worked for me. I hope it helps.

Screen rotates, pen doesn't


Is it maybe possible it is a hardware prob? maybe the directional sensor in the tablet was displadced.

 

BTW i have the same tablet and need an harddrive replacement/upgrade, how did you manage to do that? what kind of drive and where to buy? Viewsonic seems not so eager to help me out with that.

 

Best,
