Tablet Problems
« on: May 31, 2017, 12:38:01 pm »
I plugged my tablet in today to do some drawing but it won't pick up my pen and just flashes its little white light. What should I do?
I think it's called an Intuos Draw.

Well, I'm not an expert when in comes to drawing tablets, but from the electronics I've messed with, there's a few things you can do.

Do you have sensitive info on it (Sorry, I don't know how these things work.)? If not, reset it.

Then if the reset doesn't work, try every combination of buttons. If there is only one button, try holding for 3 seconds, then 5 seconds, then 10 seconds. If there's no buttons, skip this.

If all of the above fails, keep trying to use it however you normally would. I've had quite a few devices just up and die, and then a few days later, it's working again.

If you don't mind getting a little forceful, tap lightly on the back of it. I have a device that had a broken touchscreen, but now it's working because I guess the tapping, raised the broken part off the LCD.

Also, if you can give the the model number and other info, it would help.
