Question about Wacom CINTIQ 18SX GRIP PEN (UP911E18SX) Digital Pen

1 Answer

Grip pen not responding

Hi, most of the time my grip pen works fine with my Wacom monitor. However every so often after turning the computer on, the pen doesn't register at all. This usually lasts for a random period of days before working perfectly again, for no apparent reason.

Re: Grip pen not responding

You could try recalibrating the tablet.  Open the tablet control panel, then click "About." Then hold Control while clicking "Diagnose..." and on the next screen -- the Diagnostics window -- you'll see a new button labled "Recalibrate..." Clicking that might do the trick.

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.

Intuos 3 grip pen "sticks",

Hi. Thanks for your question.
I know this may sound silly, but did you try and change battery in the pen? please let me know if this works. If not will try and work something else out.
Thank You

Someone must of dropped my pen and now it is missing the clicker on the side. Wondering if they sell parts for those or should I just purchase a new pen? I have a Wacom tablet, model # XD -0608 U

They sell spares on the wacom website.  Just click on the estore tab and you'll fine your tablet near the bottom.  They have switches, nibs and grips for the pen - the switch currently costs €6.50.  Pens cost €101.

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 .
