Question about Wacom (PTZ930AC) Graphic Tablet
My bamboo fun pen feels ridged and does not work except for the eraser
Mike's solution works! Just re-writing to better understanding.
1. Remove the erase and pen tip. The erase part shows off and magnet. Be careful to do not pull this, because it's wires are solded inside. 2. Remove the button and carefully, starting by near button part, remove the plastic locker. 2.a Just pull this plastic a little and then, slide it from erase side to tip side otherwise, you will crack it. 3. It's time to open the pen itself. Just hold one side and pull the other one carefully.
My problem and also Mike's are the magnet that was broken. Probably your too.
4. To test, join the magnet holding tight and test if you table recognizes the pen tip. 5. Get a super-bonder or any good glue. Hold the magnet tight joining both parts(still close by a wire). 6. Reassembly and get back to life!

I had the same problem with only the eraser working but I fixed mine though it was kind of risky... I had to disassemble the pen. I think this voids the warranty so, do it at your own risk. OK, so this is how I did it: 1) I first took off the tip and the eraser (only the cap, not the coil inside) using my teeth as suggested in here! 2) I pulled the two parts of the pen away in the middle *carefully and slowly* for about half a centimetre, then unhinged the blue plastic (not the one with the buttons, the one one the "rear" side) 3) When the rear slid off, I unhinged the "buttons" plastic and the whole circuit could come off easily. I noticed that the front coil had a broken core (the cylinder that holds the wire in place). I used super-glue and voila!!! Problem solved!

I've done what was described in here and glued the magnet back on the pen tip but it doesnt function the same anymore. Anyway thanks for the tips.

In my case the coil from the pen had one of its terminals broken
(poor soldering). Fixed it by re soldering the same.

All you need to do is replace your pen tip. when you bought the bamboo you should have also been given three replacement nibs, just pull the current one out, with like your teeth or plyers of something, and push the new one in. tell me is that doesnt work
