I don't use this tablet every day nor is it plugged in every day. I haven't had it long - the first few days it was fine, although sometimes I had some issues getting it to respond that were fixed by unplugging it and plugging it back in repeatedly.
Just today, I was trying to draw with it and it would register my clicks but it wouldn't draw in the art program. The cursor also kept randomly jumping to the top of the screen, which was annoying but I dealt with it. I fixed it not working in the art program by restarting my computer. I'd hoped it would fix everything.
Now it keeps jumping and at random times thinks I'm touching the tablet (IE it tries to draw or click) when I'm just hovering. I tried adjusting the pressure but that made it worse. I've been a mouse user for most of my life and I don't know much about tablets - this one is my first one, so any help would be appreciated.
Hi Cinny, thank you for reporting your problem. Please try the following steps to troubleshoot your issue:
Please change the pen nib with a new one and make sure to insert it firmly. (Note: Clouds of dust on your pen nib will also result in the pen hover issue.)
Please make sure there are no other electronic products like laptops or mobile phones nearby. If there are, please put them away and see if it helps, since the pen hover issue may also be caused by electromagnetic interference.
Uninstall the driver, and try the tablet (without a driver installed) to see if the problem still persists. This can help determine if this problem is caused by the driver.
If you have dropped the pen accidentally, we are sorry about that but this kind of man-made damage is out of our warranty. We suggest you purchase a new pen from our official store or Amazon.
Try to upgrade your firmware by following the steps below:

I have very similar problems with my HS610. I've taken it out of the package only a couple of hours ago. Its my first drawing pad so i knew it would take some getting used to, i thought i was doing something wrong. It does a couple different things:
- when i'm drawing / hovering it will randomly jump to the top left or bottom right corner, resulting in an annoying experience and lines across the screen.
- it will randomly re-calibrate itself as i'm scrolling, hovering or just trying to click something, jumping a few cm across the screen. I can somehow reset this by moving my pen to a corner in the direction it jumped.
- pressure sensitivity sometimes randomly turns itself on and off.
Following this advice (without luck):
- I've replaced the new nib
- there are no other electronics around
- i haven't dropped the pen
- I've uninstalled the driver, if anything it made it worse
- I tried upgrading my firmware, but the tool downloaded in chinese, and i don't understand a thing.
I really hope this is fixable, been wanting a pad and to get into digital art for ages!
thanks in advance,
