Question about Wacom Bamboo Pen Black (CTL460)

Open Question

Wacom tablet pen activates right click?

I have an older model, a Bamboo Pen CTL-460, that I got from my brother a few months ago. The problem started just yesterday, and before that no problems had occurred. I re-installed the driver, and that worked, but when I started my computer up this morning, it seemed that the problem had not gone away after all. I tried re-installing the driver to see if it would work again, but the problem still persists. What can I do?

SOURCE: My Tablet pen wont release, it acts like im clicking and holding

I'm just gonna pass on a email from Tech Support I recieved. 

"It sounds as though your pen has pressure in proximity. This is present when the tip sensor of your pen is stuck down causing the pen to think that it’s clicking before it’s even touching anything. What you may want to try would be to remove the nib from the tip end of the pen, it pulls straight out with a pair or tweezers or your teeth, and leave that out overnight with the pen left on its side. Place the nib back in the morning and if the issue persists then you may have a defective pen tip."

The rest consists of personal info and warranty advice so I'll leave it there.

SOURCE: Will a Bamboo Pen work on a Toshiba tablet pc M200

^The question is NOT asking about a USB thumb drive, and a lot of people seem to have failed to understand this.

I don't believe Bamboo pens work.

SOURCE: 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.

Does the Wacom Intuos2 Classic Pen (xp 300e) work with the Wacom Bamboo CTL 470 tablet?

From what I read on Wacom's site, they are NOT compatible.
The Bamboo use a stylus that is different than the nib pens that the Intuos use. The stylus for the Bamboo is more like the stylus you can purchase for smart phones. The Intuos pens are pressure sensitive and have different nibs you can use for different effects and feel. You can go to their website and look for compatible pens and stylus' for your specific tablet.

I am trying to get my CTL-460 Wacom Bamboo Pen Tablet to work on my new computer, a Toshiba Satellite, which uses Windows 8. I have attempted to download the drivers multiple times, including from the

When loading the latest driver for it from Wacoms site, be sure to change the compatibility on the EXE file to "Windows 7". If that doesn't work, you will need to look at purchasing a newer model. The CTL-460 Wacom Bamboo Pen Tablet was only compatible with XP and Windows 7. Newer Microsoft operating systems are not supported on that product from Wacom.

Why has my bamboo pen and tablet become so sensitive?

I've had the intuos and it worked for years without incident. I have the bamboo and after only a few months it's having issues. WTF is up with that?! I've already changed the nub out once. It worked fine for a while but now... I have to double click to get it to release anything it grabs onto. As a graphic artist where precision is involved... that's very bad.

I think it's time to contact their customer service.

My Wacom Bamboo Tablet wont detect my pen for some reason

Mabye you should buy a new pen. I had the exact same problem, but I bought a new pen and it worked perfectly. Call first and explain your problem to the website, and they should give you a new pen for free because of warrenty. Go to the WACOM website and look for the phone number in the top-right corner. That is all except to wait for your new pen that should arrive in two or three days tops.

Cannot open the Pen Tablet Properties page

I just fixed this by fiddling around with it. I use windows XP though.... Try going into your Start panel>Bamboo*or tablet name>bamboo preference file utility.
Then you will have a pop up come up that says to removed, backup, restore
Remove again or cancel. Press the second remove. It will restart your pen tablet.

Hope this helps you.
