I'm just gonna pass on a email from Tech Support I recieved. 

"It sounds as though your pen has pressure in proximity. This is present when the tip sensor of your pen is stuck down causing the pen to think that it’s clicking before it’s even touching anything. What you may want to try would be to remove the nib from the tip end of the pen, it pulls straight out with a pair or tweezers or your teeth, and leave that out overnight with the pen left on its side. Place the nib back in the morning and if the issue persists then you may have a defective pen tip."

The rest consists of personal info and warranty advice so I'll leave it there.

It did the same thing to me, it just started clicking when i was still hovering over the tablet. I went to the pen tablet properties and changed the tip feel from soft to hard. If it was on the soft side it was just to sensitive.

Hope i helped

You may have an issue with the drivers. If you're using the drivers on the CD, try updating to the latest drivers:

If you're using the latest drivers and the issue persists, try rolling back your drivers to the previous release:

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

I have a Wacom Bamboo Craft Tablet, and it was working just fine a few days ago, and today when i hooked to it my computer, the nib part isn't working. The eraser part is just fine. I replaced the nib and...


Since the tablet is receiving the eraser it is more likely that the pen itself is damaged. This is good news because the tablet is much more expensive to replace than a pen. You can buy replacement pens for the Wacom Bamboo tablet directly from Wacom. I will include the link but if you do not feel safe clicking it you can go to Wacoms site, click Products > Buy Now > Bamboo, you will find some pens available for about $30.

Here is the link: http://direct.wacom.com/stores/5/Bamboo_C137.cfm?UserID=22113229&jsessionid=a630896e283d$FE$15$1

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.

Wacom tablet pen right click always active.


I'm having this same problem with my original Graphire (ET), with a replacement pen that's less than two years old.
I don't think it's a driver issue, based on the indicator light on the tablet itself. It turns green like it's detecting a click when either end of the pen is brought near the tablet. To me, that suggests an issue with the pen hardware. The mouse has no such problem.
I'd be very interested if anyone has a solution to this.

Is it possible to remove features from a tablet?


I have the bamboo fun pen also. I am currently running Windows Vista 64bit home and have the same problem. I fixed mine by going into the control options > Tablet PC Settings > Other > Go to Pen and Input Devices > Settings (Under Pen Options) Then I clicked at the top Where it states "Enable press and hold for Right-clicking". I disabled that and my pen works with no holding for the right click. I can make scratch marks all day! Hope this helps you too.

Silver Cirlces when pen touches tablet


The solution is simple to your silver circle happening every time you click the screen. Go to Start>Control Panel and double click Pen and Input Devices. Click on the second tab in the Pen and Input Devices (Pointer Options) and uncheck all four of those top boxes. Voila! No more silver circles when you click!

If your tablet is acting buggy, try installing the latest driver from the Wacom.com website.
