Ugh, tablet pen issue

For some reason, my tablet pen is acting really odd. It has no real response to anything until I put it right next to the tablet. Then when I do, it seems to be stuck on a click (I think it's left), and barely draws at all. I don't really know why it would though, it was working perfectly a few seconds before. Any ideas why?

Re: Ugh, tablet pen issue

Well, i'd suggest 3 things

  1. restart your computer, see if that works
  2. unhook your tablet and re-hook it in
  3. check to see if the tablet might've been broken or injured
something like this happened to me once
and thats the stuff I did

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.

go to the pen tablet program folder and start up pen tablet properties and there should be an option to use the pen as a pen or as a mouse. if this does not help then the pen may have some problems.

A constant click.

I saw another solution to this on another one. It suggests you take the pen nib out, wash it and leave it out of the pen for 24 hours.

My Intuos3 Wacom Tablet doesn't work...sometimes

I had a similar problem with the tablet not picking up the pen until I waved it around (in range) for a few seconds.  I realized later that the slow response time was due to me having the usb plugged in to the monitor instead of directly into the computer...  I switched and all is fine now.

Pen issue

i'm not really sure, but many many other people have the same problem (me included). have you tried removing and replacing the nib, downloading the new drive or adjusting the sensitivity on the control panel? i've even heard that hitting it on a table works. my guess is that something is clogged/broken because of disuse. it's really frustrating.

Why does my tablet suddenly start to randomly click and drag?

Sometimes the tablet (especially ones with buttons at the top such as Cut, Copy, Paste etc) reacts to pressure and not the tablet itself. Make sure theres nothing over them, that might help.
