Question about Wacom Intuos3 Graphic Tablet
My Intuos 3 has been working fine for over a year, and suddenly the pen doesn't work. I don't recall dropping it or anything when it happened; it just stopped working out of the blue.
It suddenly had no pressure sensitivity-- and I mean NONE, as in it won't recognize at all when I try to press down. I can still use it to hover around the pad, but I can't get it to click anything, whether I use the click-button or if I try to double click, or drag, or press down with the pen. The light on the tablet is always blue, it's only ever green when I use the mouse to click.
The mouse, touch pad, and everything else works fine. Because of that, I thought it was a problem with the pen itself. However, I JUST bought a brand new pen, with the same results...
I tried resetting my tablet preferences, uninstalling my old driver, installing the newest driver; and of course before all that I also did the usual unplug/replug tablet, restart computer, etc.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for reading!
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.

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: wacom intuos3 pen is not working
A few hours ago Wacom released a new driver 6.1.2-5 for the Windows 7/Vista/XP operating systems. I was having the same problem. Hopefully this will be a permanent fix!

Sounds like you're either holding the stylis to close to the nib and bumping the nib, or, there is dirt in behind the nib causing it to not be fully released when you lift it.
The nib does not need to make contact with the artboard, just be depressed when in range of it.
The nibs can be pulled out and replaced - cheap as to buy new nibs. I've never pulled one out and refitted the same used nib, with a 'good' pair of tweezers you can try, but you risk squeezing the nib out of shape - worth a go?

I actually found a solution. I uninstalled the driver of my tablet and reinstalled the latest version. It's working fine again...
