Re: cannot use tablet

I just recently had the same problem, and since I . . . kind of messed around inside the tablet, I'm pretty sure it's the USB cable. Of course, there is no way I can be 100% positive, but I'm thinking that's the problem.

Re: cannot use tablet

I had that problem and I found two things that may cause it:

1- Installing the cable at a USB port otherthan the port you used the first time, which would lead to conflict - Try restarting your computer

2- Try removing the driver, restart computer and re-install it again.

Disconnect the tablet from the PC
Presuming you have a WIndows Operating System
Go to Start, Control Panel, System, Select the "Hardware" tab then "Device Manager"
Locate the Wacom tablet on the list and highlight it by left clicking once. You can now delete the device by the "X" at the top or by hitting the DELETE key.. confirm delte and close the hardware box.
At the Control Panel Box select ADD/ REMOVE programsScan the list for any Wacom tablet software that may be installed and remove it by again left click once to highlight then select REMOVE
Close Control panel and reboot your machine.

Install latest drivers from Wacom and then plug the device in allowing the machine to find and reinstall the Tablet

My Wacom pen doesn't work. The blue light on the tablet turns green when I touch the pen to it, but the cursor doesn't move on the screen. I thought that the tip needed to be replaced, but after changing...

Does the mouse work (on the tablet)? What happens when the side buttons are pressed do they work? Try un-installing the Wacom driver (Pen Tablet Utility) and Install the latest version from and see if that helps.

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.

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.

My pen tablet is on and running, when I bring the pen across the tablet it moves the cursor on the screen, but in my art program, it isn't painting - but if I click with my mouse, that will paint.

You may need to set it up in preferences in the programme (without knowing which programme you're using). It will work if you remove the mouse.

Pen and mouse have constant constant cursor jitter Intuos 3 mac

I had a similar problem on my laptop

I plugged the tablet directly into the laptop rather than the USB hub I'd been using until then, The issue disappeared.

Possibly it's a power issue, and going direct cured it?

Initial Delay of tablet pen

I had a similar problem with Vista which made the pen/cursor freeze just as the tip was placed on the tablet face.
The problem turned out to be a Vista setting.
I went to Start > Control Panel > Pen and Input Devices.
Then in the Pen Options tab highlight the "Press and Hold" pen action and then press the "Settings..." button. In the dialog box that opens uncheck the "Enable press and hold for right-clicking" check box. Hit "OK".
Worked for me.
