Re: skipping

I had the same problem and got it fixed. I opened the tablet. (you'll find all the screws at the back, some of them beneath those black rubber pads).

Before you open the tablet, disconnect it from the computer!

Once you open the tablet, you'll find an electronic grid, fixed with tiny black rubber rings.

Check to see all rubber rings are in place
. At the point where the pen skips, check to see if the rubber ring is at the same hight as the neighbouring rings.

Once you checked these, Close the tablet again.

Be sure to firmly close all screws. If you don't make sure every screw is firmly attached, the tablet might skip again and might go crazy!

Re-connect the tablet to the computer, restart Windows if necessary, and it will hopefully work perfectly!

It worked with me this way! Good Luck to you ;)

My Genius Mousepen 8x6 tablet isn't working with the pen. If the pen touches the tablet, the light lights up, but the cursor doesn't click and it won't move either. The mouse is working fine, though.

My i608 pen stopped working today. I've had it for a month. The mouse was working fine, but the pen wouldn't work at all. Then I left the mouse on the pad and used the pen while the mouse was on the pad, and the pen started working again. Now it works even without the mouse on the pad. Did it re-establish the radio connection or something by doing that? Anyway, saved me the $25 replacement cost.

Not recognized, skipping when it is

It may be a loose wire, are you still covered by the warranty?

Genius 8x6 MousePen Tablet not detected

sounds like a short in the wiring. the usb cable i very flimsy and very prone to breaking. if you know what your doing you could open it up and TRY to fix it, but if its under warranty get a replacement. thats about all you can do bro. stupid companies and their cheap craftsmanship.
