SOURCE: My Wacom Intuos3 tablet won't switch into pen mode

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 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!

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.
This is a comprehensive forum thread regarding digitizers that work with Penenabled Tablet PCs: http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/showthread.php?t=12695
I don't believe Bamboo pens work.

SOURCE: wacom babmboo pen does not work

If the eraser part of your pen works but the business-end doesn't, this fix may be for you. Since the only option is to replace the whole pen, it's worth the try. The interesting part: There is no "live" powered electronics in the pen (it is a simple L-C circuit for you tech-weenies out there) - truly the only way to make the pen not work is to drop it and knock it out of adjustment, use it as a crude paper punch, or get it soaked with some type of fluid such as coffee, beer or soda. The pen is an excellent design is designed to just eventually wear out. My pen is 10 years old and still looks new.

I needed a small jeweler's screwdriver for this fix (1 mm to 1.2 mm width). Carefully remove the rocker switch from the pen; it just pulls out. Don't lose it. See the image below: there is an itsy bitsy slotted screw-like device in the center (it's a tuning capacitor). For its location, follow the white arrow in the picture I've attached. Prior to turning, memorize where the slot-head points (there's a tiny triangle on it), and if possible, use a fine point sharpie to mark the screw before you adjust it. It is not a "screw" per se, but an adjustable capacitor and part of the tuned circuit.

The adjustment: Place the pen as normal on the tablet and "tweak" the capacitor by a small 1/16 or 1/8 turn in either direction until the pen reacts. If it has gotten out of "resonance" this tweak should kick it back in.

Good luck!magriv_0.jpg

Fujitsu Siemens Stylistic ST4120 Tablet PC pen not working with screen

I just fixed this problem on the 4120 for a friend, What I did was first to install the drivers from the Fujitsu site so XP was displaying all drivers as installed in Device manager.


Then I ran windows update to patch it up to date and then I downloaded the drivers from the wacom site.



http://www.wacom.com/en/support/drivers

Then choose tablet pc from the first drop down and then os (xp in my case) from the second drop down.
Reboot
Pen working!

Go to Control Panel, and open bamboo properties. There you select the "pen" tab. In the pen tab you will see tracking. Select pen mode and details. You can map the pad there. After mapping pen mode try it in mouse mode as well. Best of luck!

I have the et-0405-u and i want to use in with win 7 how can i get the driver and a program that i can draw scatches with it

Oh sketches! Gotcha! First of all - check that your pen actually has a 'nib' a plastic rod/insert. I reversed mine bacause it was getting worn, but it fell out and I had similar symptoms, so I have put it back in the right way round and all works fine now.
I do not know if this tablet works on Win7 - most likely does - check at Wacom.com. It works fine on Vista - just plug it in! It will be recognised straight away, mine was. If you have Windows, you should have at the bare minimum MS Paint, or whatever else it is called. If your tablet is responding and correctly recognised, opening up Paint should let you start sketching right away. But if you have any art talent at all you would be far far better off with Corel Draw (or whatever it is named these days), Photoshop or the like - far more possibilities (Corel Draw has all sorts of creative brushes and effects, I have no artistic talent but can produce great things with it).

My Wacom seems to be confused. It's acting like an etch-a-sketch. The moment I get my pen any where near the tablet is starts drawing. It can be even an inch above and it's still continuously drawing. I...

Try resetting the preferences to the default (or factory settings). This is related to proximity or pressure function. Open the preferences (with the mouse) and adjust these. Once adjusted, swop to the pen and see if this has made a difference. Trial and error… Another issue, may be the tip has damaged, or is jammed 'on'. Using the special tool provided, remove the teflon tip and clean the pen with a mild solvent.

Point pen fails after falls

I'm guessing something inside the pen was jarred. A basic solution would be to get a replacement.

Also try taking the tip out of the pen and leaving it OUT of the pen for 24hrs.
