Hurricane Florence Alert:
A rather large hurricane is set to hit the East Coast of the United States at the end of this week. Because of its size and threat to life & property there have already been significant evacuations in the areas expected to be hit worst. Hopefully things do not turn out as bad, but we will probably see shipping delays to and from that area (our North America distribution center is in Memphis, TN, close to the area).
If you are in the US region and you order something during this period, please see check https://www.ups.com/us/en/service-alerts.page?id=alert1 for possible alerts.

Skips a part of the screen

Postby PinkBucky » Sun 9. Apr 2017, 22:08

Hello!

I didn't know where to go with my problem, everybody already seems to know the solution to my problem but they all don't work.

My Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch small has been working perfectly well on my previous laptop, and worked perfectly well on my new, better laptop, until today! I plugged in my tablet and I noticed that it skips a line at the lower part of the screen, it jumps down to the very end but everything between that line cannot be 'touched'. I work on ArtRage and that's where I pick my colors and tools so this is very inconvenient.

However I've found a lot of people on the internet having similar problems and they tried to reinstall the Wacom driver, check on recently installed programs that might conflict with the tablet, update the video driver etc etc. I've tried a LOT but I've not yet found a solution that works for me.

Can someone on here help me?

Most likely this is a problem in the tablet hardware. There could be insufficient energy and it might help to use another USB port. You can open the tablet properties, hold down Ctrl (or Alt on a Mac) and click on the About/info button to see the tablet diagnostics. Move the pen over the tablet and check xy-coordinates. If the tablet has a 'dead strip', it should go for repair if still in warranty. If warranty is over the best option (besides getting another tablet) is to define a smaller 'portion of tablet area' in the driver, avoiding the defective part. Then you have a smaller area on the tablet, but can still work on the whole screen.
