Question about Wacom Intuos3 4x5
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.

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.

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

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 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.
