I accidentally knocked my tablet off the desk and onto the floor. Fearing damage, I tested the corners and edges of the tablet, but the cursor didn't reach all edges and corners of the screen in response and sometimes tapping the pen to the tablet doesn't get a response. I tried unplugging the Wacom and plugging it back in and restarting the computer, but it still doesn't cover the whole screen.
My husband tried to re-seat the interior of the tablet, as he found it had come loose a little in the fall, but even that didn't work and the tablet still barely responds. Is there something else that can be done to recalibrate the tablet, or has some serious damage taken place? It only fell about two feet and my floor is carpeted, so the shock shouldn't have been that bad, could it?

Re: Dropped the tablet and now the calibration is off
I actually got rid of my Wacom Graphire several months ago but there is/was a *reset to defaults* button in the Wacom icon in the control panel. You probably want to open the *Pen* tab, ensure it?s in pen mode and click on the default button. That is supposed to reestablish the default tablet to screen mapping. If that doesn?t work then you want to do a Windows search for *tablet.dat*. The procedure says to delete the file and restart the computer which forces the program to rebuild it and reset everything to the factory defaults. Just because I?m cautious I would rename the file to *tablet.dat-old* or something similar just in case something goes really wrong.

Not likely.Most items only get replaced when the item becomes faulty through normal use whilst it's in warranty.Accidental damage is not covered, however you may have home insurance and it may get covered if you can convince the damage occurred through an indirect action.i.e. The cat knocked it off the table or you left it on a chair and someone sat on it.you never know.
Alright, i know this is old, but i hope i can help those guys/gals, i
recently bought the phone and i had this problem too, i dont know if it
will work, but its worth a try, when i tried everything, i started
losing hope, but i tried knocking the phone on something soft like a
towel or the bed mattress, then it works wonderously, and i heard some
people accidentally dropped their phone on the ground etc, and it works
like normal again... although i would never recommend dropping the
phone on hard surfaces, just try knocking on your bed mattress (do not
EVER knock on the metal area, im not responsible for any damages), or
put a towel on your lap and knock it few times with the screen face
down (of course, just knock slowly, dont put too much pressure...) hope
this helps!, and sorry for the long phrase of boringness!
Hey pooda2, It does sound like there is damage to your lens. Manufacturers’ warranty does not cover damage but a Best Buy™ performance service plan with accidental damage and handling would cover the repair. To find out if you have a performance service plan with adh on the camera you should call 1-888bestbuy. If you do have the plan you could bring your camera to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they can send it out for service. If you don't have a performance service plan with adh on it you could still have it sent out to get an estimate on how much it would cost to repair it, but often with digital cameras the cost of the repair exceeds the value of the camera. Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
NO. Its also probably the drive a suffer physical damage. Imagine a cd player being dropped as it is reading/writing, except you can change the disk. You will most likely have to ( or have a trained technician ) extract the drive, place it into a new enclosure, and test the drives stability.
Hope this helps.
