Question about Genius G-Pen 560 (31100026100)

Touch sensitivity gone.

My tablet was working beautifully. It was the best money I had ever spent. I was a happy little artist...

Then one day it suddenly quit working. I tried new batteries in the pen, I tried re-installing it, and I tried another computer.


Any suggestions?

Re: Touch sensitivity gone.

Ok i did a search for this problem and ended up on this forum
My diagnose of the problem was that the pen was not detected by the drawing pad , so something was wrong with the pen
After studying the pen i found a little hole where the wire is where u screw the cap on the back
Pushing in the hole with a little screwdriver made the circuit board come lose
Then i found out i had to use a little screwdriver to pull out the long button before the whole circuit board would come out of the pen
I found out that one of the tiny wires from the pressure coil was loose
I soldered it back on and tested it ,still out of the hull ,but holding a battery in it and touching the drawing pad
And it worked again !! (cheer)
I think that due to some movement of the coil and/or circuit board inside the hull ,one or maybe even both of the wires come loose and that makes the pen not function anymore

Just to be sure i put a dot of extra solder on both wires because the amouth of soldering tin was barely visible

If your handy you can try to open the pen like i did and check if both wires are still connected to the circuit board
If not , with a bit solder u can fix it and get it working again

Hope my experience helps others to fix this nice drawing pad

My wife was very sad as she found out it stopped working and a new battery didn't fix it
Since i gave it to her for her birthday i was upset too and very motivated to find the problem
As ham radio operator i have plenty of soldering and trouble shooting experience

Good luck : OutOfFocus

Is there anybody here who is familiar with the Adesso Cybertablet 8600?

First I'll say that despite Adesso being a cheap brand, my tablet has worked great for me for the past two years and I am happy with it. However, I cannot get the tablet's pressure sensitivity to work well in Illustrator CS2. When I go to the brush options, the pressure feature is off. Has anybody else experienced and/or conquered this problem?

I unplug the tablet before I switch on the computer. When the operating system is ready I plug it again. I wait a few seconds or minutes (one or two) while the tablet is calibrating. After that it works fine.

Why has my bamboo pen and tablet become so sensitive?

I've had the intuos and it worked for years without incident. I have the bamboo and after only a few months it's having issues. WTF is up with that?! I've already changed the nub out once. It worked fine for a while but now... I have to double click to get it to release anything it grabs onto. As a graphic artist where precision is involved... that's very bad.

I think it's time to contact their customer service.

The pressure sensitivity on my tablet won't work at all.

I'm pretty sure that if it's not your hardware that's at fault, that it's the driver. my own tablet has a driver that will install automatically, but it doesn't support the pressure sensitivity. Make sure you download the driver for your tablet model from the manufacturer's website, that should enable the sensitivity.

Pen no longer pressure senstive in painter

Go to Start>Programs>Wacom>Wacom Properties and in there you should be able to "Add" Painter X to the programs recognised by the tablet app.

G-Pen F610 blind spot (pen won't move over particular section)

Sometimes it is caused by a metal plate coming in contact with the sensor pad inside of the tablet. It is only fixable by dismanteling the tablet and putting an A4 sheet of paper between the back side (the one that has the metal plate which can be the culprit) and the green pad (do not touch it!). This issue usually appears after continuous use when the green sensitivity pad is pushed down a little and is short-circuited by the metal pad on the inner side.
