Question about Wacom Graphire 4 "Silver" 4x5 (WMM132369)

Pen issue when I try and draw with my tablet's pen, it works. But when I remove pressure from it, my computer (and the tablet) still thinks that I am still putting pressure on the pen, and thus still using it. any ideas on why this is happening?

I'm not really sure, but many many other people have the same problem (me included). have you tried removing and replacing the nib, downloading the new drive or adjusting the sensitivity on the control panel? i've even heard that hitting it on a table works. my guess is that something is clogged/broken because of disuse. it's really frustrating.

Why won't my wacom grip pen click when it touches the tablet instead of hovering and selecting text?


Have you tried pulling the nib out (the end bit you draw with)? It could be that something is sticking the nib further inside the pen than it should, which is telling the pen you are applying pressure. As far as I know there is a little spring inside the pen that the nib pushes on when you touch the pen to the tablet. Perhaps the spring is permanently squished in.

My Wacom seems to be confused. It's acting like an etch-a-sketch. The moment I get my pen any where near the tablet is starts drawing. It can be even an inch above and it's still continuously drawing. I...


Try resetting the preferences to the default (or factory settings). This is related to proximity or pressure function. Open the preferences (with the mouse) and adjust these. Once adjusted, swop to the pen and see if this has made a difference. Trial and error… Another issue, may be the tip has damaged, or is jammed 'on'. Using the special tool provided, remove the teflon tip and clean the pen with a mild solvent.

Pen keeps drawing when I lift it off tablet


This problem commonly occurs due to a stuck "nib" sensor (the sensor that detects pen pressure).

Take out the "nib" (important, so the sensor isn't damaged further) and whack the pen on your desk (or drop it on the floor from 3 feet up). It re-seats the "nib" sensor when it's stuck. If this doesn't work after multiple attempts, then the sensor may be too damaged.

My Genius Gpen 4500 has shown no Pressure recognition on Photoshop, Painter and the wizard.


Hello. I'm not quite sure if this will be useful for you, but i'll tell you what happened to me. I bought the very same model but without the mouse, the G-pen450. When I just bought it, I just intalled the driver from the CD, and both the painter X and photoshop cs1 trials included. I had no problem when I was drawing in photosho cs1, but when I uninstalled it and and installed photoshop cs2, I was still able to draw with the pen, but it had no pressure sensibility, no matter how hard did I press the pen against the table or how many times i enabled or disabled the pressure settings in both photoshop and the tablet driver.

what i did was downloading the new driver (the 2.0 version) for the g-pen450 from the genius page, and simply installed it ... and it didn't work, worse; now even the pen suite didn't recongize the pressure control, so, what I did was to uninstall the WHOLE software included with the table along with the driver, and then I reinstalled the new version (2.0). After I installed it, the instaling program asked me to restart the computer, so I did it. Then, after the computer was done restarting, I connected the tablet to a USB port, and then the computer recognized it, actually it told me that it recognized the tablet, two HID compatible dispossitives, and a HID compatible mouse pen. It opened that window that appears everytime you connect new hardware to the computer, and it proceeded to "install" all the drivers needed for the dispossitives.

After the computer finished installing, it asked again to restart the PC, soooo I restarted it again, when it was done, I connected the tablet once again, and this time it displayed that "your new hardware is installed and ready to use" balloon on the bottom right corner of the screen. So I tried opening photoshop CS2 again and drawing with the tablet, and this time it did work perfectly.

I think it's matter of uninstalling the old driver, and the bundle software (annotate all, pen commander, pen mail, pen signer, etc. ) and then instaling the 2.0 version of the driver.

  2. unhook your tablet and re-hook it in
  3. check to see if the tablet might've been broken or injured

and thats the stuff I did

Pen working incorrectly


I have the exact same problem, and I can't find anything, until now, on the web about it. I think perhaps the pen is defective because the mouse works fine.

Windows Vista Issues


Omg... I just found out how to get around this problem, so see if it works for you. I found that I could download a special driver that would cause the 12000u aiptek tablet to work. Here's what it is called:

hp12000u_vista_driver_beta

Download the driver, restart your computer, and there ya go! Saved me from having to spend even more money on a new pen tablet.

I found it simply by searching for "aiptek 12000u vista downloads" or whatever. Hope this helps!
