Bamboo Tablet Pen not responding

:iconryncious:
Ryncious Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh my gosh it just had to be now when I have alot of commishes to do!! Fuuuuu--!!
I called the Apple store to see what could be fixed, they said I would just have to buy another one. SOB! That means I have to get off my lazy buttcheeks and go fetch another one. Better yet i should probably just buy whole new set of tablet and pen. which tablet do you recommend that isn't over $150?(and that comes with either Photoshop or SAI)

Okay...im done complaining..wait jk..FUUUUUUU--!!!

sometimes if you restart it will work again. I remember having that problem back when I still used the tablets. Now I use a cintiq :)

This has happened to me before. Simply uninstall the drivers, go to the Wacom website wacom.com and download the updated drivers.

The apple store can't do squat for you since it's not their product.

Mine got kinda angry as well because she got annoyed by the sound xD

on a side not, removing the tip of the pen may or may not work as well

Id say if you want the touch feature get the Wacom Bamboo pen and Touch uvu
I got mine for about $110 including tax
But if you dont need the touch feature a Wacom Pen tablet is about $60.00 at your local Bestbuy (where I got my Pen and touch~)
It came with Photoshop Elements 8

But have you tried resetting your pen pressure file utulity? Or uninstalling the tablet completely and then reinstalling it with the disc?

My Bamboo tablet came with Corel, and my Intuos came with PS Elements, but considering SAI is a Japanese program that only a fraction of the art population uses in comparison with Photoshop, it won't be appearing with any tablets, and I don't think it ever will.

If it's just the pen I'm sure you can find a replacement on ebay or something. No use buying a whole new tablet because the pen is broke oO

:iconryncious:
Ryncious Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yes very true! Its weird b/c when I plug up my tablet i can use it with my fingers(like a mouse ya know?) and then when i try to interact with the pen the mouse on my screen glitches or doesnt show up at all plus the tablet doesn't recognize the pen alot of times
Reply
:iconbrandimuffin:
BrandiMuffin Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2012   Digital Artist
That's really weird. I know you've probably already been told this, but just in case you haven't... have you tried updating the drivers?
IF the drivers have been updated... then maybe try this:

Another trick that might work is deleting all of your preferences, by going into "Wacom Tablet File Preference Utility"
But I would do that as a last resort.

:iconryncious:
Ryncious Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
hmm....before the last resort( i like that song from papa roach) anyways, random i know lol.
but drivers? what do you mean? how can i find this driver and maybe 'reset or change'?


(btw thanks for the help alot!)

You should be able to find the most recent drivers for your tablet on wacom's website. And another thing: don't keep your tablet too close to the computer or laptop you're using. I thought there was something wrong with my pen too, but I had put my tablet on top of my new laptop's keyboard and it was messing with it. :paranoid: I was just used to doing that with my old laptop.

If there are still problems, email wacom's customer support. They're decently fast and relatively helpful. They'll be able to point you to the drivers if you can't find them either.

Oh my gosh thanks alot for the help! I actually removed/uninstalled my driver and its working better for now...my computers old so something might just happen again lol!!

oh thanks so much! I have no idea why i contacted the apple store instead of the wacom customer support!

NoxxBunny Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
No problem! Glad to see it worked out. I think all wacom's programs work like that. :lol: I've had to reinstall my drivers twice and my laptop is only 6 months old.

I own one, and yes, they suck.

They are designed to go to shit so you have to keep repurchasing, or buy something of theirs that is more expensive.

Intentional obsolescence at its finest.
