Question about Wacom (PTZ930AC) Graphic Tablet

2 Answers

My trusty old Wacom tablet is dead.

It just quit. No status light... just dead. I've checked the power source, etc. Should I try opening it up to look inside?

It is a VERY old 6x9 tablet -- Model UD-0606-r

Re: My trusty old Wacom tablet is dead.

This is a year later but I have just had the same problem. It will be a wire broken off the power socket that piggy-backs the 9-pin serial connector. The whole internals have been set in wax which makes it almost impossible to repair.
I require a replacement cable or a wiring diagram for the connector and then I will be able to repair it.
I am trying to see whether it is possible to buy a replacement cable as a spare part

First off, Check the warranty on it. If the warranty is up, You should open the thing up and check it out. Look for dust, cut wires, blown fuses, and see if anything is corroded. Get back at me if you find anything.

When I'm using Photoshop CS4 with my Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet, the screen tracking for the tablet only works for half the tablet. This happens with everything else as well, not just Photoshop...

Go to Control Panel, and open bamboo properties. There you select the "pen" tab. In the pen tab you will see tracking. Select pen mode and details. You can map the pad there. After mapping pen mode try it in mouse mode as well. Best of luck!

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

Tablet quit working. Left for vacation (1 week) came home plugged it in and it no longer worked. WACOM TABLET CTE-440

Had the same problem and just solved it. Very easy. Turn off your computer. Pull the power cable. Wait about 5 minutes. Plug it back in and power it back up. No more USB not working prompt in your device manager and your tablet should be back and running.

Wacom pen does not function

Unfortunately I had the same problem.

Its from moisture in the pen, could be from humidity or something spilling on it. Try searching google for information on how to fix wet electronics. (Im quite sure youre not supposed to use heat)

Dead Zones on Tablet

Yes, you have a hardware problem. The 'dead zones' are known as dead pixels. Click on the link below to contact Wacom for repairs/warranty claim:


Note: If you feel that these dead pixels do not interfere with your tasks then you have the choice to continue working on it.

Wacom serial power to usb connection

If your table has a USB connection and requires a powered USB port, then don't waste your money or time. If it's the other way around and the table is powered from another source, the converter will likely work.

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.

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 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.
