Question about Wacom (PTZ930AC) Graphic Tablet

1 Answer

Tablet stopped working

I have a Wacom model CTE-640, and when I connect it to the USB port, it't no longer recognized, the blue light doesn't go on or any thing. I believe it's a problem in the tablet's USB cable, is there any way to fix it, or am I better off just getting a new one?

    Having the same problem, also think it's the cord. It was working fine, then suddenly died. It lit back up when I moved the tablet, but the problem got worse over the next few hours and now it won't respond at all. Help?

    The cord got yanked pretty hard once last week, which is the only thing I can think of that might have damaged it.

    my tablet wont turn on now either. When I plug it in, my laptop recognizes that something is plugged in, but instead of the normal 'connected' sound, it makes a 'bing bing bing' really quickly. I wish I could describe it better than that. When I pull out the usb, it makes the normal 'disconnected' sound.

Normal 0 If you are running a ‘tower’ PC ensure the tablet is plugged into a USB port at the back of the computer. The USBs at the front of your computer may not provide adequate voltage.

Wacom tablet pen right click always active.


I'm having this same problem with my original Graphire (ET), with a replacement pen that's less than two years old.
I don't think it's a driver issue, based on the indicator light on the tablet itself. It turns green like it's detecting a click when either end of the pen is brought near the tablet. To me, that suggests an issue with the pen hardware. The mouse has no such problem.
I'd be very interested if anyone has a solution to this.

Tablet quit working. Left for vacation (1 week) came home plugged it in and it no longer worked. WACOM TABLET CTE-440


Had the same problem and just solved it. Very easy. Turn off your computer. Pull the power cable. Wait about 5 minutes. Plug it back in and power it back up. No more USB not working prompt in your device manager and your tablet should be back and running.

I had the same problem. Repairing permissions didn't help, but deleting old software and reinstalling new WACOM software did. Thank you, Swedey! :o)

Im using a serial to usb connector to connect my artZ II tablet to my laptop..


Sorry, I figured it out, it was because the serial to usb adapter i was using needed a driver, and then my computer recognizes it as an extra serial port. So, during installation it needed to be searched for automatically from my serial ports.

Can not install ArtZ tablet


Check the port it is connected to. Wacom seems to only recognize serial ports 1-8. I use a USB to Serial adapter and had to reassign it to a lower port number from 12. Go into Device Manager, select the connected device, right click to select Properties, the the Port Setting tab, Advanced button, COM port number. Ok you way back out. uninstall the Wacom software, then reinstall it, following the reboot prompts. It loads a service that tends to hang if the device is not connected when it starts. I had started disabling the tablet and the service just so I can avoid a reboot when I change ports.
