Intuos 3 dead zone

I've had my Intuos 3 about ten months now and yesterday was surprised to notice a portion of it had become a "dead zone", entirely unresponsive to the pen. The dead zone is a horizontal strip about 2" tall running across the middle of the tablet. Reinstalling the driver does not seem to help at all.

    similar problem, have tried all the trouble shooting tricks. my dead zone its about the same size and is completely unresponsive to both pen and mouse.

    let me know if you get this one figured out.

    My problem is similar, except the whole tablet is a dead zone, despite the fact that the blue light is on and everything.

    I've got the same problem at a Fujitsu Siemens Stylistic 4114.



    It seems some connections of the flex connector from the Wacom Sensor Board became faulty.

    Over the last weeks applying slight pressure to the screen fixed the problem for a while, but since yesterday the dead zones ae permanent.



    I've got a dead horizontal and vertical stripe.

    My tablet has a 2 inch strip across the bottom of the control surface as a dead zone. Running under Mac OS X 10.5.6

    Installing driver 6.1.0.-7 has not helped.

    Blue light is on.

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: how to take apart Intuos pen

Ok, after my wife washed mine in my jeans, i really desperate and decided that I had nothing to lose. I searched all over the web for ways to do this and nothing!!!! So today I grew a pair and tried something and low and behold... so anyway. 

*!*!*!* Remove the rubber grip and button first (untwist tip cap and remove threaded section, slip fingernail under top edge of button and pop it straight up and off, slide rubber grip off towards point *just in case*) Grasp your pen in both hands with the tip facing to the left left hand should be grasped covering  the tip and ONLY the section that has the recessed barrel with the raised button ridge. Right hand should be grasped just off of the first diameter reduction from the right (ie. where the just before the pen gets thinner) and covering the eraser (unless you have really small hands) CAREFULLY but firmly pull the two halves of the pen apart from each other !**!*!DO NOT TWIST THE PEN!!!! the pen should come apart without a problem and now you have access to the inner goodness of the Wacom Intuos Pen
Note: when putting the pen back together, be gentle and place the board in the eraser side first, if it doesn't push the eraser tip up, twist it slowly till it slides all the way in (be sure to try to leave a tiny space for eraser play.) Twist the pen (board and eraser cap end) until you can see the two receptors for the buttons, slide the tip end cap on and press firmly until the caps seat together and the holes line up for the switch. slip the rubber cover back on, twist on the threaded tip and clip the button back on, that should do it, Hope this helps!

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!

Listen up kiddos! I had this same problem and I was troubleshooting....apparently you have to make sure you uninstall the old drivers first and delete the directory entirely, before reinstalling the software.
So, UNPLUG THE TABLET! This is the part that screwed me up... then go to start > all programs > tablet > uninstall. Run the wizard, restart, go to my computer > local disk drive > program files and delete the Genius Tablet folder. Then, install the drivers again, reboot, THEN and ONLY THEN, should you plug your tablet back in.

SOURCE: photoshop cs4 pen pressure not working. Windows

In photoshop, press F5 to bring up your brush control window. Under shape dynamics and other dynamics and any other brush attributes you wish to control with your pen, make sure that control is set to "pen pressure" in the drop down menu. Hope that fixes it for ya.

Where can i get a wacom bamboo tablet?


You can buy them new from places like Amazon or directly from Wacom. Just to confuse you more-- it used to be Bamboo, Intuos, and Cintiq. Now the entry level tablets are the Intuos, the mid-level has become the Intuos Pro, and then the Cintiq.

Why has my bamboo pen and tablet become so sensitive?


I've had the intuos and it worked for years without incident. I have the bamboo and after only a few months it's having issues. WTF is up with that?! I've already changed the nub out once. It worked fine for a while but now... I have to double click to get it to release anything it grabs onto. As a graphic artist where precision is involved... that's very bad.

I think it's time to contact their customer service.

Dead Zones on Tablet


Yes, you have a hardware problem. The 'dead zones' are known as dead pixels. Click on the link below to contact Wacom for repairs/warranty claim:

Note: If you feel that these dead pixels do not interfere with your tasks then you have the choice to continue working on it.

Wacom Intuos 3 unintentional double click


I've been having the same problem and I think I just figured it out.

I'm using a Wacom Intuos 3 on Windows Vista. I think one of the Windows automatic updates caused this problem. I've just been putting up with it for way too long when I finally thought to check the driver.

I started by going to the control panel and typing in "mouse" in the search box. Then I clicked on "change mouse click settings". When I selected the "hardware" tab across the top I noticed that Wacom Mouse was not highlighted. I selected it and clicked on the "properties" button. I clicked on the "driver" tab across the top and clicked on the "driver details" button. Then I selected the wacommousefilter.sys driver and chose "ok". After that my double click problem has stopped.

You can also download the newest driver by going here: http://www.wacom.com/downloads/drivers.php

I hope this helps anyone still having this problem.
