Question about Genius MousePen 8x6 (MOUSEPEN8X6)

Skipping and Shaking cursor

My tablet was just fine for the first two months, than all of a sudden it started to get bad. The cursor, whether with pen or mouse, literally shakes and skips rapidly, and makes very jagged lines. Ive reinstalled the driver, checked the balance of the sensitivity, and such. Nothing works!. It wasn't as bad when it started ,but it gradually yet really quickly got worse and worse every time I used it.
I than tried it at a school computer which had CS3 and some other various tablet driver things, and it was just fine. I'd really like to fix this asap, I cannt make decent artwork or ink with consistant lines, and it is VERY! fustrating.

x_x anyone to help? I hardly want to deal with phoning a company, those are always such a huge hassle and hardly do any good, Im no good over a phone.
i just bought that genius tablet
the pen dos'nt stop shaking then it stop working
i tried to uninstall it and reinstall it several times

    Too many guys have the same problem. I do the same, but it's nasty...
    I think that it isn't a usb port problem, it's maybe to due service pack 3.

    do you have installed SP3?

    I have the same problem. I just got mine and I can't do anything with it because its opening up everything and jumping around. Thought it was faulty because I bought it on e-bay and it was fixed and stuff. But seeing that other people have the same problem, I don't think that now. But I don't want to think I just wasted money on this.

I have exactly the same problem as you, my tablet worked perfectly for the first three months and then started to act weird, shaking and skipping screen areas, even if i only touch it with my forearm.

Uninstalling/Re-Installing drivers didn't solved anything, so i started switching my tablet to different usb ports in my pc, and from one to another, the problem got a lot better. It didin't solved it, but works "decent". So, comparing yor experience with mine, it's probably an usb-port problem, rather than the tablet itself i thik.


I will test it in othe computerts to see how it goes

Here you have my solution, my tablet was shaking the cursor after a couple of months, and the solution was the most simple on the world... the screws in the back was loose, so I adjusted the screws with a screwdriver and magically all the problems was gone (two screws was under the small rubbers on the corners.

My Genius Mousepen 8x6 tablet isn't working with the pen. If the pen touches the tablet, the light lights up, but the cursor doesn't click and it won't move either. The mouse is working fine, though.


My i608 pen stopped working today. I've had it for a month. The mouse was working fine, but the pen wouldn't work at all. Then I left the mouse on the pad and used the pen while the mouse was on the pad, and the pen started working again. Now it works even without the mouse on the pad. Did it re-establish the radio connection or something by doing that? Anyway, saved me the $25 replacement cost.

My cursor won't stop shaking excessively. I can't click on anything either unless I slam down on the mouse really hard.


Have you replaced the batteries?
Otherwise, reduce the sensitivity of the mouse in the Control Panel.

Ur issue is that the tablet itself can not be above the tower or the laptop. Magnets make it shake. I had that problem to anytime it was by the computer (only above for some reason) or by something magnetic, so avoid that and you should be fine.

Wacom tablet won't recognize pen


Hmm. I've had a similar thing happen with my tablet. Have you tried removing the tablet pen from the list of tools in tablet preferences and then adding it to the list again before checking the 'About' section of the tablet pen set-up and clicking the 'diagnose' button there in? As that worked for me when my tablet pen was not working. The pen was recognized by the tablet after that.

Skipping and Shaking cursor


There is a problem with the compatability of your tablet and your monitor. You either have to change your monitor to a different refresh rate or simply move your tablet abit further way from your monitor. If possible, you could change your tablet to "single mode" (depending on your tablet).

Skipping and Shaking cursor


I had a similar problem years ago w/ my ss III 12x12 that had worked flawlessly for years. I talked to tech support and they said move it away from monitor (crt) or other source of RF interference - this did not help mine. I tried replacing the power supply w/ generic one - no help. I noticed that the power supply voltage was spiking when check w/o load. After talking to an electric guy I know, he suggested a voltage regulator. Finally I built a home-made voltage regulator and wired it into the generic supply line -Problem solved This was about 10 years ago - still working good today.

could be that it is too close to the monitor - radio frequencies interfering -- try to put tablet farther away from wherever it's plugged in...
