Question about Wacom Bamboo Fun 5.8" x 3.7" USB Tablet with Cordless Pen and Mouse - Black
I have a Wacom fun, pen and touch tablet but recently it will not work. the blue light comes on but that is all. It will not work as a mouse and the pen will not respond, except for a very small twitch when i first test it. the computer makes a sound recognizing some sort of USB device but nothing else happens. i cannot open the pen tablet preference menu either.all drivers have been updated and i have restarted my computer many times to no avail. It has had no previous problems in the past and i have only had it six months. My OS is Vista basic.
I would really appreciate your help as i use the tablet quite frequently and am lost without it.
I would try loading a Linux operating system on a flash drive and see if it worked on that. Vista is unsafe to use on the internet, anyhow.

SOURCE: Broken Wacom Bamboo Fun Pen
Do this I swapped it and fixed everything it was a little complicated but worked

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!

I think you dropped the pen on its tip and broke the little ferrite sensing core. You can try to repair it by gluing the core back together - it worked for me. For detailed instructions on how to do it, go here:
or you can try to swap the core for the eraser and the tip (more involved - you would need to be very good with a soldering iron to attempt this). Either way - it's unfortunate that the pen is so fragile and that the user manual doesn't really warn you of this.
