My tablet was just fine for the first two months, than all of a sudden it started to get bad. The cursor, whether with pen or mouse, literally shakes and skips rapidly, and makes very jagged lines. Ive reinstalled the driver, checked the balance of the sensitivity, and such. Nothing works!. It wasn't as bad when it started ,but it gradually yet really quickly got worse and worse every time I used it. I than tried it at a school computer which had CS3 and some other various tablet driver things, and it was just fine. I'd really like to fix this asap, I cannt make decent artwork or ink with consistant lines, and it is VERY! fustrating.
x_x anyone to help? I hardly want to deal with phoning a company, those are always such a huge hassle and hardly do any good, Im no good over a phone.
I have the same #$%^&* problem with my Wacom tablet pen and even the Wacom mouse. Mine is an Intuos 3.
There is a problem with the compatability of your tablet and your monitor. You either have to change your monitor to a different refresh rate or simply move your tablet abit further way from your monitor. If possible, you could change your tablet to "single mode" (depending on your tablet).
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Wow been there my self on my gateway tab also. I found by trying this to be a issue with the FLICKS settings and needed to update the firmware and re calibrate the pen without flicks or other short cuts u might use. Also if u just bought this PEN locally u might contact the seller for assistance and if not able ask to exchange this one to test out if its on your side of the problem or just a issue with this model pen. I often do not try to do to much testing of hardware that might cause more questions and often more problems later. I recommend before u start trying out possible fixes that change the config of now a system that works with 3 pens and has in past what might u change could not help us determine if its your side config or if its a bad pen or is it a known issue and if it is we might beable to at least leave a trail of what we did incase we need to undo what changed.
Please if u could tell us the make of the pens that worked and the make and model of the one that don t... also u might see if anyone else u know could test this pen too on there tab for out ruling works or not.
Good luck ill follow ur posts
The cursor skipping in three places is apparently caused by the connectors inside the tablet getting dirty or corroded. Fortunately, you can easily fix this problem yourself! All you need to do is unscrew the back of your tablet, unplug the connectors and clean them with a q-tip dipped in alcohol. There is a video on YouTube that shows you step-by-step how to do it(it's easy!). It's called: Howto fix dead areas on any graphics tablet and it's posted by riodroid. Here's a link to it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ff7Vw-0kPsE
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 exactly the same problem as you, my tablet worked perfectly for the first three months and then started to act weird, shaking and skipping screen areas, even if i only touch it with my forearm.
Uninstalling/Re-Installing drivers didn't solved anything, so i started switching my tablet to different usb ports in my pc, and from one to another, the problem got a lot better. It didin't solved it, but works "decent". So, comparing yor experience with mine, it's probably an usb-port problem, rather than the tablet itself i thik.
I will test it in othe computerts to see how it goes
I had a similar problem years ago w/ my ss III 12x12 that had worked flawlessly for years. I talked to tech support and they said move it away from monitor (crt) or other source of RF interference - this did not help mine. I tried replacing the power supply w/ generic one - no help. I noticed that the power supply voltage was spiking when check w/o load. After talking to an electric guy I know, he suggested a voltage regulator. Finally I built a home-made voltage regulator and wired it into the generic supply line -Problem solved This was about 10 years ago - still working good today.
