Broken Wacom Bamboo Fun Pen

I dropped my tablet pen and it is broken now. Only the eraser works. This is my second pen (I dropped the last) and I don't want to buy another one. Can I fix it?

    My Dog chewed up the front of my pen... I'm not sure if theres a second one. I really don't wanna spend more money on another tablet because of 1 pen. I dropped it a couple times... and It still seems to work. It was pretty sturdy until my dog had to come and eat it for breakfast. Is there any other way to maybe get another pen without buying another tablet? I only got 1 pen from buying it.

Lf only one end of the pen is not working and you dont use the other end, you can unsolder the copper coils eon-both ends and swap them over. Tip for opening: lift up the small blue bit nearest to the top, and then pull.

SOURCE: Wacom Bamboo Fun Pen isnt working correct

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: http://wishidknownthat.blogspot.com/2009/04/fixing-wacom-bamboo-pen.html  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.
Good luck!

I have a Wacom Bamboo Craft Tablet, and it was working just fine a few days ago, and today when i hooked to it my computer, the nib part isn't working. The eraser part is just fine. I replaced the nib and...


Since the tablet is receiving the eraser it is more likely that the pen itself is damaged. This is good news because the tablet is much more expensive to replace than a pen. You can buy replacement pens for the Wacom Bamboo tablet directly from Wacom. I will include the link but if you do not feel safe clicking it you can go to Wacoms site, click Products > Buy Now > Bamboo, you will find some pens available for about $30.

Try replacing the pen nib. Take out the little nib with a tweezer or something along those lines and replace it with a new one. There should be a few of them when you bought the tablet. Also, try looking at the tablet properties.

Pen Won't STOP Working


Well... I contacted Wacom support and the guy who write back recomended me to change the nib, to turn 3 times the eraser and to hit 4 times with the pen onto your palm hand...

Of course I didn´t do anything like that, I mean, what´s that??? An spell of some sort (or what)???

But what I did was the following (MAC-OS user):

-Enter to the pen tablet options on your preferences
-Switch the sensitiveness of the pen to the hardest
-Run an app that work´s best with your tablet and make some lines to check if at least in this mode the pen works
-Return to your tablet preferences and adjust at your best

I can´t explain why but my stylus is working fine again...
hope someone find this useful...

Pen Tip Not Working


I had the same problem and called Wacom Customer Care at 360-896-9833... I was informed that the pen was defective/ broken and needs to be replaced. This can be caused by being dropped and such. I was told that i should keep the pen on the stand or a eyeglasses case when not in use.
If your tablet is under a year old, warranty will cover the cost of the pen with proof of purchase. Other than that, you will need to purchase a new pen (about $29.99 from Wacom & online).

Unfortunate, but great to know.
