This problem occurs due to a stuck "nib" sensor (the sensor that detects pen pressure).

Take out the "nib" (important, so the sensor isn't damaged further) and whack the pen 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 after multiple attempts, then the sensor may be too damaged.

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 Genius Easypen i405X tablet keeps clicking when I hover with pen


Hello :) we have the same problem regarding the same brand and product. But I got mine working just a while ago.
Try this: Control Panel>Pen and Touch
under pen options, there should be settings regarding the pen buttons. Unclick the "use the pen button as a right-click equivalent"
hope this helps though although it's been a year XD

My Graphics Tablet Pen Keeps Clicking When I Hover It Over The Tablet Without Touching It, How Can I Fix It?


This sovled my issue using a Mac...
1. Download the latest driver from Wacom http://www.wacom.com/en/CustomerCare/Drivers.aspx
If you already have the pen tablet uninstaller utility, run it. In my case there was a Bamboo Fun folder with a Bamboo Utility inside the applications folder. If you cannot locate it, you need to run the installation of the new driver. Then go to said folder, open the utility, select All User and Remover preferences. THEN select "Remove pen tablet". You will essentially remove the driver you just installed.
Then RESTART your computer, and proceed to re-install the same driver. Issue should be solved.
If not, contact Wacom customer support. 800-922-6613
That fixed it for me. Hope it makes sense.

My pen writes even if it's hovering over the board. =[


I had this same problem. I found my solution on here, but i don't know if it will work for you. Take the pen and hit the head of the pen into your hand 5 times (pretty hard i hurt my hand while doing it but not too hard) and then do the same with the eraser. It worked fine for me afterwords. Something about humid weather and the sticking of the pressure thing in the pen. I hope this helps

I need help! My intuos 3 pen is wacking out! it is over selecting things... how do i fix this? my mouse is not doing it, but the pen is. I took it apart and cleaned it...which seemed to help a little...but...


Soooo many people have this problem. Try hitting the pen head into your palm and do the same with the eraser. This worked for me. Something about the humidity and making the pressure thing in the pen stick. I hope this helps.

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.

Classic Pen Woes


Hi , Mnemosyne , i'm the Guest who had the exact same of your problem , i contacted WACOM and there solution was as follow : " This problem is, although uncommon, usually easily fixable. The first and fastest solution is to simply press the eraser a few times to release it from binding on the side of the pen. If that does not work, pull the white plastic nib, and take a fingernail file (LIGHTLY) to the back end of the nib, making sure to remove any burs or flaring from the nib. I have seen this problem myself, albeit uncommon " , they also suggested if all fails then change the nib ( and thats exactly what i did , i changed the plastic nib with the felt nib - i like it better anyways thats why i didn't bother filing the plastic nib - and WALA my problem was solved and the pen is working like a charm , hope this helps .

Tablet gone insane.


I'm from ukraine, sorry my english;

Reason:
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.
