I recently bought myself a Bamboo Fun Tablet from Wacom. The cursor is shaking rapidly. I can't even work on art with it. GAHHds;s

-I've tried changing USB ports, doesn't work.
-Removing/re-installing the program.
-Download updates for the tablet.
-Download Jtablet from Cellosoft.
-Restarted my laptop numerous of times.
-Tried the tablet with my laptop in varies of places.
-Gah everything you could imagine.
-And no I never dropped the pen/tablet. D'::::::::::

Not my video but I'm getting the same shakiness as well as this user:

DSfajsdf Gah sorta pissed. I will have to get a different tablet. :/ If your planning on getting a tablet I wouldn't recommend getting a Bamboo Fun. I just got news this happen to a friend of mine as well.

Any suggestions of what kind of tablet I should get instead? m(_ _)m

Hmmm, thats weird, i'm using one too but its never done that, probably a bad one, how f***** great is that? D:

I suggest the new Wacom Bamboo Create, all the reviews and feedback i get is very positive and some say its alot more fun and just as good as Intuos 4.

Plus i think i'm gonna get it :'D

It works great, must be something with OS or computer.)
Plus depends on program you are working with. For example, my bamboo fun lags in GIMP and works perfect in any other program.

I have the same problem sometimes, I think its the mouse you are using, If you are using a usb mouse, take it out of the PC and it should work fine

I have a bamboo fun too and it works fine..^^"
maybe you have to adjust your "Tip Feel" to Soft or Firm.. mine is between the middle towards soft..
Or.... Did you change your "Tracking" to a "Mouse Mode"

Im not really sure but it really depends on how the user use it.. If its still not going smooth... maybe Bamboo fun is just not the right art tool for you!

Try Intuos, they work good and they have more size options!^^

Kind of surprised, I'd heard a good review on it from the one other person I knew who'd gotten one (but then again, he upgraded to it from a graphire 1 he bought new and used until the pen had no tip anymore, so that might be part of it...)

Happy New Year!

You have a Bamboo Fun tablet?
oo:

I have the same kind! But mine works just fine.
Mine doesn't shake when I use it and stuff.

Maybe you should just stick to your old tablet.
Or you can contact Wacom and let them know about your difficult situation.

I always wondered how good those things can be for $90 or whatever they cost. You could try to exchange it and maybe it's a manufacturing flaw. I never saw one in the return bin at Best Buy when I worked there, so I assumed it was okay.

This may sound weird, but if you turn the pen over and use the eraser does it's behavior change at all? One time my tablet started acting kind of like that and it turned out it was the pen that fuxed up and not the tablet itself. If you have your old tablet pen you could try using it with the bamboo. Not that this would stop you from returning it, it would just be interesting to know. XD

Wacom Intous 2 is what I've got, the one that has lasted for 5 years and is still working. If you want to get another one for cheap you can go to ebay and get a slightly used one since the model is older. If your old tablet's pen is still functional and it's compatible you can get just the tablet itself and that might knock down some of the price. The price for the set I got was about $300 and it included a mouse that I NEVER use that's way overpriced.

That's disappointing too because I like Wacom, I didn't think they'd put out some defective piece of crap. Loss of points, Wacom.

Are you returning her? I've heard that the intuos is a great line, but if you're looking for something cheap to tide you over for a little while, I bought a DigiPro tablet back in April, and for the 40 bucks or so I paid for it, it works pretty damn well.

;A; Ruw-chan!!
Happy belated xmax/new years!
I haven't see u in forever in Lj \(TTATT)/ *pls come back, cuz im dead here -dies- lol*

Im sorry to hear about the tablet, but it seems to me that is probably some kind of signal issue *maybe something is under the touch pad of the tablet, see if everything is even* that's making the cursor go crazy like that xD Sometimes, a very similar thing happens to my tablet, but i just plug-out and plug-in the tablet usb and it fixes the problem ;x;

I would recommend a intuos, i have an intuos3 and it works great, maybe u should open commish to save for one *v*
Art thiefs leave me in despair D<!!! Is the real artist aware that this sorairo-mei-sai is stealing his/her artwork? oxo

Yeah I thought that was the problem. D::::: But it's still failz. I will just return it and get another tablet. = w= moar money out of my pocket.

I haven't done any sort of traditional painting in awhile. So having a commission shop would be a bad idea D:::::::::

I think so. Sorairo-mei-sai is now banned. ; u ; d

*o* New Tablet!!! But at least u were able to find ur receipt and get a refound ;w;, so which one u got this tiem? Intous?

Lol no no, i meant digital commish *Traditional commish sounds amazing, but is rly hard ;A; * xD Like for an example an oekaki commish or cg commish that can just be sent over the internet. But if u actually consider opening commish, i can point u to close friends who have done this type of thing, succesfuly, many tiems ^^

Awsm \*o*/!! Good to hear she's banned now ;v;
