Question about Wacom Intuos2 A4 Oversize DTP (XD-1212U-D)

Open Question

The orange light is on but no one is home!

My wacom tablet which I have had for about 5 years has suddenly stopped working. The orange light sometimes comes on but does not "pick up" the pen or mouse. I have unfortunately lost the clear cover in transit, would this be the cause of the problem?

    Hi I have the same problem. I still have my plastic cover. That can't be the problem. I suspect that it is the pen. I'm looking for a way to repair it...

    i also have the problem. since it affects both the mouse and the pen, i can only assume that it is in the tablet.

SOURCE: My Wacom Intuos3 tablet won't switch into pen mode

I had the same problem with my Intuos3 on Vista. Tech support suggested the following.

Do this.....Go to Start--->control panel---->system(in classic view)---->device manager--->click on "human interface devices"--->then click on "Wacom virtual HID driver" and right click on that and disable it. Your computer will ask you to restart and you will want to do that.

Everything works fine now.

SOURCE: Wacom Tablet overly sensitive

I also had this problem. Then I tried changing the frimness of the pen, and now it works perfectly fine.
Go to Pen Tablet preferences, then in the Pen tab, change the softness scale to "Firm" then it should be fine.

SOURCE: My Wacom Intuos3 tablet won't switch into pen mode

The winning answer came courtesy of Mr Benedikt Schmitt of Wacom Europe, who offered the following solution: from the Windows Device Manager, disable the “Wacom Virtual Hid Driver” device. (Go to Control Panel > System and Maintenance > Device Manager, find the driver, right-click it and choose “Disable”.) One reboot later (welcome to Windows-land, circa 2008?), everything works as desired. Pressure and tilt sensitivity inside Photoshop still work, and the pen functions just fine in the rest of the Windows desktop. The absolute mapping makes it an absolute pleasure to point quickly and precisely. It makes my laser mouse feel rather clumsy navigating a large 24′ screen!

SOURCE: My Bamboo Fun Tablet pen/stylus is not working.

That happened to me yesterday. What I did was I went to the wacom site here: http://www.wacom.com/downloads/drivers.php, selected my tablet make and operating system, and downloaded the driver update. I installed it and as soon as it was done my pen started working again. Hopefully this works for you too!

SOURCE: Wacom tablet stopped working, blue light on.

Hey I had this problem too with my Bamboo too, I'm not sure if it was anything I changed or whatever but either way the blue light was on but it wasn't registering the pen.

I found a way just minutes ago to fix it however!

Go into 'start', 'all programs', then look for 'pen tablet'. Hopefully you should have this. If not then download the latest driver for your tablet from the wacom website and that should install it.

Next choose 'pen tablet preference file utilty'. Then under 'my preferences' choose to remove. Bingo! All was well in the world again.

This worked for me so hopefully it will for some of you guys too! Good luck!

Wacom tablet stopped working, blue light on.


Since you are running Windows Vista on your PC this is the driver you should have downloaded.

Serial cables are not hot swappable. The computer and tablet should be turned off before you plug them in.

My wacom tablet has loses connection


You should get the tablet, and then get some tape, and then move around the wire, and then when it turns on, tape it onto the tablet, and then it should work intill you take off the tape.

Wacom intuos3 pen is not working


A few hours ago Wacom released a new driver 6.1.2-5 for the Windows 7/Vista/XP operating systems. I was having the same problem. Hopefully this will be a permanent fix!

Intuos 3 Pen input suddenly stopped working in Photoshop CS3 in Vista. It works in all other programs. I updated driver to v6.1.1 to no avail.


I have no idea why the pen worked in everything but Vista but I uninstalled everything and reinstalled version 6.1.1-3 driver a second time and everything worked again.
Don't know why it did not take the first time.
Thanks for the assistance.

Wacom tablet won't recognize pen


Hmm. I've had a similar thing happen with my tablet. Have you tried removing the tablet pen from the list of tools in tablet preferences and then adding it to the list again before checking the 'About' section of the tablet pen set-up and clicking the 'diagnose' button there in? As that worked for me when my tablet pen was not working. The pen was recognized by the tablet after that.
