    Pen/Tablet Unresponsive

    • Ashley,

    I've had this tablet for a little over 2 years now and it's still in great condition! It had been fully functional until today when I tried to use it and the pen I have became unresponsive to it. I switched batteries, and when that didn't work, I switched pens with no success. The light turns blue when the pen is above the tablet but it won't respond to movement. Unsure if it's just reached the end of it's life, but I'm upset to have taken such good care of it to have it just give out like this.

    Hi Ashley,

    Just to verify, were there any changes made to the setup prior to this happening? Such as, was the OS updated, were there any other devices added to the computer, etc.? Can we try swapping out the pen tip with one of the provided spares? Also, can we test the tablet with another USB port to see if the results are the same? What about with a different computer entirely? Should that not work, please let me know which OS version you have and I will do my best to help fix this issue. Thank you for your feedback and my apologies for any trouble this may have caused.

    I did have an update to my OS but I had that done before and there hadn't been any issues. I tried it with no other devices, swapped out pen tips on both pens provided, and tried it on both on my macbooks USB ports as well as my dads computer with no luck. The blue light will come on and the pen will have no response to the tablet.

    Hi Ashley,

    Thank you for getting back to me. Just to make sure I'm on the same page, the blue light doesn't come on at all when the pen touches the tablet surface, right? Usually when I see this, the problem is caused by the pen itself rather than the tablet. Since you've already tried swapping out the batteries and the pen tip, the last troubleshoot I can provide is to open up the pen and check that the metal lead is in full contact with the positive side of the battery. Sometimes that connection can loosen over time. I also suggest taking the battery out, bending the lead so it's angled down slightly, then putting the battery back in for a snug fit. Should that not work, I would try replacing the pen entirely with PID 8297:


    Just in case, I also wanted to provide the most up-to-date Mac drivers. Here is the direct download link for those:

    No the blue light does come on when it touches, but there is no movement on my computer screen, so it's not the pen.
    But I was able to get it to work after installing the most up to date mac driver, so thank you!

    Pen issues with Mac OS

    Cons: Pens not working tablet not responding. Did all troubleshooting.

    I have a larger 12x9 tablet that works great on my various Mac OS computers and purchased this for traveling. Unfortunately after all kinds of troubleshooting this one only responds intermittently to either of the pens. It's a pain to return so might as well use it as a place mat. One of my first Monoprice failures

    Hi Lagsun,

    Thank you for your review on PID 5553. I am truly sorry to hear about the pen issues experienced with this tablet. I see that you already have an RMA for a replacement in progress. As soon as you receive the new pen and have had a chance to use it, please feel free to reply back to this review with an update. My apologies again for any inconvenience and please let me know if there is anything that I can assist you with!

    Pros: Easy to use. Any problems I found with it were generally easily fixable myself.

    Cons: Work space to screen ratio kept resetting itself every time I restarted my computer, even with the latest upgraded drivers and service pack on my 8.1 device.

    I had mine for a good few years, and it finally died today. It did an amazing job for an inexpensive tool. The bamboo fun I had only lasted me three years, the Kanvus I switched to after that, only a year.

    Throughout it's four years of service, my monoprice endured being toted around to and from school and events. The liftable plastic cover had a break in it that was was fixed easily with packing tape. The same cover was warped when someone decided it was a great idea to serve me my plate on my tablet while I was taking a break from working on a commission, but even that didn't cause it to stop. It had a couple of splits in the outer protective shell that gave me the opportunity to customize it with patterned ducktape, because the splits were only an aesthetic problem, and the pen that came with it popped open frequently after the first two years, but after buying a new one I didn't have to worry about that problem anymore. Even cats perching on it didn't cause any problems in responsiveness. Aside from the one pain in the back side that was having to go in and reset the workspace to screen ratio, which honestly I didn't really mind, I have nothing but praise for tihs tablet.

    The only way I could possibly give this tablet a higher rating is if it somehow managed to replace itself. Four years is a LOT more than I thought I'd get out of it. I'd been skeptical of it at first but I can honestly say this was the best gift I've ever been given, and if I had money I'd buy it again, and I feel like now that I'm in a location where my belongings are respected, a replacement would last even longer. Honestly when I hear my artist friends are looking into a new tablet, I direct them here first, because my experience has been so great. Why spend two hundred dollars on a tablet when you can get the same thing for thirty or forty dollars, and potentially have it last longer.

    A really great product all in all.

    Pros: As advertisedor better.
    Don't know if it always does, but this one came with 2 pens.

    Cons: Still exploring. I'm not an artist, just having funand it is fun!

    So far this tablet seems to be as advertised and all I expectedor better. Don't know if it always does, but this one came with 2 pens. Using My Paint as software (free and downloadable from the Internet) and apparently most options work. I'm happy with this purchase, and with Monoprice's fast delivery.

    Pros: As a graphic tablet it is fine, it works as a graphic tablet should.
    my drawing abilities on the other hand need improvement.
