Question about Genius Pensketch 9x12 USB Deep Blue (31100006101)

1 Answer

Tablet gone insane.

When I hover the pen over the tablet without actually pressing the pen against it, it draws a line, not only that, but on photoshop, whenever I press the pen on the tablet, it right clicks like mad. I've no idea what is wrong with this thing. what can be done to fix this?

    When i put a tablet pen over ,it acts like I pressed the buttons wich are on the pen.It takes actions by itself.I oppened it and tried to fix it but I lost interest when I've seen that I got to research its elements and to unerstand how its made.
    I want it to take actions while clicking on is buttons.

    I have the same problem exactly, but not only in photoshop. When I'm on the desktop it still right clicks randomly, as if I've pressed the button, and I get the context menu for the desktop. In some rare cases, like the freeware "Pencil" it behaves as it's supposed to but I'm Interested in Photoshop, not kids' toys. It is currently impossible to use the tablet for anything serious, not even file handling. It acts unexpectedly and very randomly to rely on it. Please, give a hand here!
    Note that I've installed the latest Vista drivers and I'm using CS3

    I have the same problem too. I bought the genius so that i could do my
    drawings in photoshop. I'm an amateur artist so i decided to
    buy this budget pensketch instead of a wacom. But every time i
    hover above the tablet it rightclicks and in photoshop i get dots
    everywhere. This annoying me and I think it could with a
    driver update, but genius support is zero to none.

    read an article in 3dworldmagazine and they published a review about
    drawing tablets and the genius pensketch came out with the best value for
    money. well they were WRONG! IT DOES NOT EVEN WORK PROPERLY

    My tablet was working fine for the first two days, but then it also went insane! I think the whole problem's in the pen, I tried it in 3 computers, one of them running linux, and ruled out a software malfunction. I narrowed it down to two things: either the pressure sensor, or the battery keeps slipping on and off.

I'm from ukraine, sorry my english;

Random clicks hapens becouse moving tip not return to the front. It continue to sent chaotic pressure messages. Some times, when you start to lift pen, tip start to resilient and we have ugly dots again.

Here is solution:
May be auto silicon oil wil help by reducing rubbing. Or harder spring will help?
I use little bit of plasticine. I push it under the tip. It prevent tip from resilienting. I have no problems, since i made this.

Good luck.

Why won't my wacom grip pen click when it touches the tablet instead of hovering and selecting text?

Have you tried pulling the nib out (the end bit you draw with)? It could be that something is sticking the nib further inside the pen than it should, which is telling the pen you are applying pressure. As far as I know there is a little spring inside the pen that the nib pushes on when you touch the pen to the tablet. Perhaps the spring is permanently squished in.

My guess is that the pen just needs the batteries replaced. You only change the tip when it wears out from drawing a lot. there sould be some software that lets you change the button configuration on the pen. look on the products webpage. should find some software to help you out

Hover not working

I also had the M609 from Genius and the exact same thing happened to me. Worked great for about three months then the hover stopped working. I sent it back to the manufacturer and they sent a replacement for free. How about three months later the replacement started to do the same thing. So I called Genius and the tech support guy told me they actually discontinued making this model. He didn't say why either. I suspect there were complaints about the faulty sensor. So they offered to send another replacement, but this time it would be the upgrade the M609x. Give them a call for your replacement. I hope this doesn't happen again. I'll keep you guys posted.
