SOURCE: serial to usb wacom tablet problem

I just got Vista and it killed my Intuos2 w/serial to usb also, but here's a half solution:
Download Wacom driver 4.78-6 http://www.wacom-europe.com/int/downloads/driver/driver.asp?lang=en. Make sure you remove any other Wacom drivers, tablet, and reboot. Install 4.78-6 driver and select serial port when the choice pops up. Plug in your tablet with the serial to usb adapter, wait a few seconds and click retry. Complete the install and reboot.
Your Wacom tracking should work now, but certain things might not work like pressure sensitivity and you'll get annoying error "reinstall driver" pop-ups.

I think you can aslo buy a PCI-serial card for your computer and skip the serial-usb adapter since Vista doesn't support the adapter for Wacom tablets.. but I'm not sure if there's a working Vista serial Wacom driver either.. or ever will be. The age of XP and Legacy support is at an end my friends.

SOURCE: WIRE FROM WACOM TABLET NEEDS REPLACEMENT

This cable is not user replaceable because the cord connects inside the tablet.
I called Wacom tech support about my Intuos3 with similar issue (cord problem). They will replace the cable for $75. I asked if could purchase a cable for myself (I didn't want to send my tablet in) but they do not sell the cable directly to consumers because you'd have to open your tablet. (I found out the hard way that the inside of the tablet is held together with pressure; so once opened, parts inside shift and it becomes a puzzle to put back together.)
Hope that helps in some small way!

SOURCE: Pen Won't STOP Working

Well... I contacted Wacom support and the guy who write back recomended me to change the nib, to turn 3 times the eraser and to hit 4 times with the pen onto your palm hand...

Of course I didn´t do anything like that, I mean, what´s that??? An spell of some sort (or what)???

But what I did was the following (MAC-OS user):

-Enter to the pen tablet options on your preferences
-Switch the sensitiveness of the pen to the hardest
-Run an app that work´s best with your tablet and make some lines to check if at least in this mode the pen works
-Return to your tablet preferences and adjust at your best

I can´t explain why but my stylus is working fine again...
hope someone find this useful...

SOURCE: Wacom tablet stopped working, blue light on.

Hey I had this problem too with my Bamboo too, I'm not sure if it was anything I changed or whatever but either way the blue light was on but it wasn't registering the pen.

I found a way just minutes ago to fix it however!

Go into 'start', 'all programs', then look for 'pen tablet'. Hopefully you should have this. If not then download the latest driver for your tablet from the wacom website and that should install it.

Next choose 'pen tablet preference file utilty'. Then under 'my preferences' choose to remove. Bingo! All was well in the world again.

This worked for me so hopefully it will for some of you guys too! Good luck!

My Wacom pen doesn't work. The blue light on the tablet turns green when I touch the pen to it, but the cursor doesn't move on the screen. I thought that the tip needed to be replaced, but after changing...


Does the mouse work (on the tablet)? What happens when the side buttons are pressed do they work? Try un-installing the Wacom driver (Pen Tablet Utility) and Install the latest version from www.wacom.com and see if that helps.

Wacom tablet stopped working, blue light on.


Since you are running Windows Vista on your PC this is the driver you should have downloaded.

Serial cables are not hot swappable. The computer and tablet should be turned off before you plug them in.

Wacom Intuos 3 problems


Hi Bengref
Just talked to WACOM USA about a similar (but not exactly the same) problem with my Intuos 3. One of their procedures was;

go to the ALL Programs directory,

go to the the WACOM TABLET directory

open the WACOM Tablet Properties window

click on the "About" button

while holding down the CTRL key, click on the "Diagnose" button

click on the "recalibrate" button

Another procedure

go to the All Programs Directory

go to the WACOM Tablet Directory

click on the :WACOM Table Preference File Utility"

Under "My Preferences" click on remove


Good Luck

Blinking lights no response


I was able to fix this same problem by doing a hard reset, and re-synching with my computer.
To do a hard reset, press the power button and the two center buttons, all at the same time. Hold them down for about 10 seconds - when you let go, the tablet will start trying to synch again. Once you go through the synching steps again, everything should work properly.

Intuos tablet keeps fading out


If ur wacom has a touch pad for scrolling, i've found that touching it briefly wakes up the wacom.... but apart from that, it is very annoying how it keeps fading off like that.

Wacom Tablet


pderozza,

I had a similar problem. My wacom tablet only worked in photoshop. Very annoying. I was able to fix this by doing the following:

  1. Open Control Panel | Administrative Tools | Services
  2. Right click on TabletPC Input Services and pick properties.
  3. In the General tab make sure startup type is Automatic.
  4. Make sure the services is started.
  5. In the Log On tab make sure the radio button is on Local System, and check Allow service to interact with desktop.
I think I broke it in the first place because I was annoyed with the Tablet PC services running in the background, and tried to stop them. I've just learned to live with it.
