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?

Re: tablet gone insane.

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.

Tablet pen hover is not working for me, It was working fine 1 min then the next it won't work, the only time i could move the mouse with the pen was when i put the pen onto the tablet pad, instead of the...

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.

Before you start Photoshop press and hold the shift key and wait until photoshop has loaded.

My Genius Gpen 4500 has shown no Pressure recognition on Photoshop, Painter and the wizard.

Hello. I'm not quite sure if this will be useful for you, but i'll tell you what happened to me. I bought the very same model but without the mouse, the G-pen450. When I just bought it, I just intalled the driver from the CD, and both the painter X and photoshop cs1 trials included. I had no problem when I was drawing in photosho cs1, but when I uninstalled it and and installed photoshop cs2, I was still able to draw with the pen, but it had no pressure sensibility, no matter how hard did I press the pen against the table or how many times i enabled or disabled the pressure settings in both photoshop and the tablet driver.

what i did was downloading the new driver (the 2.0 version) for the g-pen450 from the genius page, and simply installed it ... and it didn't work, worse; now even the pen suite didn't recongize the pressure control, so, what I did was to uninstall the WHOLE software included with the table along with the driver, and then I reinstalled the new version (2.0). After I installed it, the instaling program asked me to restart the computer, so I did it. Then, after the computer was done restarting, I connected the tablet to a USB port, and then the computer recognized it, actually it told me that it recognized the tablet, two HID compatible dispossitives, and a HID compatible mouse pen. It opened that window that appears everytime you connect new hardware to the computer, and it proceeded to "install" all the drivers needed for the dispossitives.

After the computer finished installing, it asked again to restart the PC, soooo I restarted it again, when it was done, I connected the tablet once again, and this time it displayed that "your new hardware is installed and ready to use" balloon on the bottom right corner of the screen. So I tried opening photoshop CS2 again and drawing with the tablet, and this time it did work perfectly.

I think it's matter of uninstalling the old driver, and the bundle software (annotate all, pen commander, pen mail, pen signer, etc. ) and then instaling the 2.0 version of the driver.
