Pen squeaking/creaking issue

Two weeks ago, I've gotten my hands on a Kamvas Pro 16 and had my brother buy it for me. After a few days of using it, I've noticed the annoying squeaking or creaking sound it keeps making when I draw. It has disrupted my workflow so many times and am contemplating whether the pen (PW507) that came with the tablet was just a defect or is just normal. Drawing with the constant creaks is just making me more unmotivated to draw.

    • Serial number (found at the back of your tablet, right after S/N)
    • Order number

  • I've asked for a replacement already from Huion and it'll be arriving after around two weeks. I also checked around the webs about this issue because it has made me insane while using the tablet. Turns out some Kamvas Pro users do experience this pen issue and some don't. I'm just hoping the replacement pen I'll be getting will finally solve my problem or else I'll be crossing Huion off my list.

  • huion distributor from my country said squeaking like this normal? can someone please tell me this is not normal, if yes then i'll blacklist huion product in the future

  • @Meh meth, I think this kind of squeaking issue has become normal to a lot of users and does not affect their workflow at all. It depends on the amount of pressure you'll be putting there that's why some encounter this and some don't. So far after some research, only PW507 pens have this issue. I think I'll be buying a different tablet with a PW517 pen model in the future or save up enough for a Wacom and sell my Kamvas Pro 16.

  • Hi Meh meth, thank you for the video. After reviewing your video, I'm sorry to let you know that the sound you hear from the pen is normal. If you want a more stable pen nib, the following tablet models use the PW517 which uses the Pen Technology 3.0:

    • Kamvas 12
    • Kamvas 13
    • Kamvas 16 (2021)
    • Kamvas Pro 16 (4k) and Kamvas Pro 16 Plus (4k)
    • Kamvas 22 and Kamvas 22 Plus
    • Kamvas Pro 24

    Here's the link for more information: Huion Battery-free Pen PW517. Unfortunately, this pen is not compatible with your Kamvas Pro 16 Premium; only the battery-free pen PW507 is.

    Best Regards,

  • It is what it is, i just hate the squeak sound it vibrate through the pen and it make me cringe sometimes when i draw like 3-5 hours it got worse the pressure sensitivity sometimes got jump when it squeak, i use XP pen before it have no squeak it was flawless, i think i need to get use to it for now on, kinda disappointed actually :(
