Question about Wacom (PTZ930AC) Graphic Tablet
In the Control Panel for the pen, hold down CTRL (PC) or ALT (Mac) and
click on the About button to open the diagnostic screen. Look at the
value for "Pressure" on the right hand side - this should stay at 0
until the pen is brought into contact with the tablet.
If not you have the same problem as me (Graphire 4).
So I disassembled the stylus. This is a quite brutal prcedure. the upper part is actually slid over the lower part, so to seperate them hold the rubbery part tight and bend the silver upper part arround till it moves (it may crack a bit before that, but thats just a cosmetic problem. After you pull the stylus apart, pull the PCB out and notice the coils on both ends. Pull the tips out of the coils and then the coils out of their holders (the wire should be long enough). Then you have to seperate the gray part of the sensors from the black part using a small screwdriver or something similar. whenn you then bring one of the coils near the pad, the pressure should read zero.
Carefully clean the sensor parts and put them back together, check pressure again. It should still read zero. If not, clean again.
The problem is most probably that a bit of dust or a grain of sand squeezes itself between the tip and the very sensible sensor and therefore preloads it.
