New Wacom Cintiq 13 Pro not turning on

Postby artemistled » Sun 2. Jun 2019, 04:16

      Specs: Macbook Pro 2017, 10.14.5 (Latest)
      Wacom Cintiq 13 Pro, Latest driver

      Short n' sweet: the thing will not turn on.

      I currently just got my Cintiq today, and after googling and researching I'm assuming the tablet should turn on the moment it's connected to its power source(?). It's connected by USB-C, and nothing else, as there is really nothing else I can connect it to- I don't use a computer with a base, it's a laptop. I'm understanding that the Cintiq was designed for USB-C in mind, being the only 1-wire-connection option for the model... that aside, it does not turn on. There is a button at the top which I'm thinking is the power button? But clicking it shortly, for 5+ seconds, multiple times, all yield the same result; of the tablet not even turning on.

      Is this... a faulty tablet? Or am I doing something wrong? It would be very troubling if it were defective... I also checked out the mojave update issues, and I fixed all those. Still, it is not working. Any input is appreciated.

Please connect the Cintiq Pro the power supply only, and press the power button. When the device powers ON, you will see a white LED at the top of the device, and the Soft-touch buttons should light up as well. Additionally, you will see a message stating "No Input Signal" - which should happen.

If the device doesn't power ON, try to plug the power supply to a different USB-C port. If that doesn't work, please contact our support - - they will assist you further.
