Pen doesn't work

Just got my Genius MousePen tablet, mouse works fine, but it doesn't react to the pen in ANY way. Replacing the battery doesn't help!

    I just got mine too, and at first it worked just fine but now it won't respond to the pen like before. It won't move across the screen anymore unless I click one of the barrel buttons, in which case it jumps to where it would have been. I don't know how to check the battery though, how do you get inside the pen?

    I just started having the same problem the other day. I got my tablet
    less than 2 weeks ago and I really wish I could find a solution to the
    problem already.

    pen doesn't work, mouse does

  • teambushido Oct 08, 2008

    It worked perfectly for a month, and now it will not work when trying to use then pen as a mouse. It will work fine however in drawing programs, just not as a mouse on the desktop or web browser. Which it did work perfectly for when i bought it new.

    Same here. Also, the Hot Cells don't work anymore (they did the firstcouple of times). Oh, and some programs don't detect pressure levels(again, they did the first time), like ZBrush, but others (likePhotoshop) work fine. I came up with the same solution sbnunez: it getsthe tablet working, but it won't solve the Hot Cells and pressureissues.

    Same problem. I'm running Vista. Pen buttons work, but cursor won't move unless the setup dialog box is open to the pressure test tab.

Same problem. The only way I could get it to work was to open up the mouse pen control panel and click the Pressure tab. After that it works fine. The mouse pen control panel will just need to be in the background. Kinda sucks, but usable until a better solution comes along.

I tried everything everyone said here. Nothing. Mouse works fine on the tablet but not the pen. I am tired of it. It's nothing but trouble. People keep telling me to get Wacom.

    No, I gave up. I don't know what else to do. It's the pen that is the problem. Got it working then it stopped working. Replacing the pen costs as much as the tablet itself.

I had this problem
click on your brush menu and top right of that menu you will see a small icon with an arrow pointing down with 4 lines next to it, click on that then click Reset All Locked Settings.
This worked for me

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.

I have the same problem. It happens after I'm not using it for 30 minutes or more. I don't think it's the battery or the tip of the pen because I've bought it a week ago. The only thing that work's is restarting the computer. But I hope that it's not solution!

Pen does not work


There is two sections of the pen. *I have the same tablet from what you described.* Twist and pull gently apart the two sides of the pen. It will open, and the battery pops out.

Try putting a new battery in it. Mine was having the same sort of problems, and they were pretty much entirely fixed by a new battery.
