I don’t trust the rays… What if they burn? I will not enjoy the metamorphosis of a Phoenix, I’ll remain dead. Gone. Forever. Who would miss me, I wonder..

A full year since it happen.. soon Christmas.. it must be a family thing not just a gathering where you get to exchange presents.. is not complete.. is not the way things should be.. is not the same.. it will never be the same..
After being asked how to disassemble a Wacom Intuos4 pen, I've decided to write a separate post on this topic. In the photo below I've numbered each step in the exact order of how I disassembled each element of my Intuos4 Wacom pen.
1. Remove the pen circular head by unscrewing it.
2. Pull gentle the button and you should hear a click when it's out as it's fitted like a lego piece in 2 holes. by 2 plastic pins.
3. Slide gently the top half of the pen (the plastic grip).
4. This part should be easy as the bottom half of the pen comes out fairly easily (a.here in the eraser cap you should have 2 small springs that normally go inside of each other, b. there is a rail inside it through which you should slide the circuit board when you assemble it and it helps you to position it correctly)
5. This is the protective housing where the board is kept.
6. Slide gently the circuit board from the plastic main housing.
Please find the steps in the following image and if you need …
Yesterday the right button of my pen from Wacom Intuos4 stopped working and was feeling a bit stiff too.. Gino got it open to see what was the problem.. it obviously needed repair as something inside the pen kept on bouncing.. 2 little springs came out from the eraser nib, and then the entire printed circuit board was taken out.. a small square piece of metal disattached fell off.. this was obviously the problem.. it was the component that makes the button work.. reassembled it carefully using the tweezers to have it working for a day and now back to square one.. same thing.. the piece fell off again.. there are some small claws to it to grab onto the PCB but it looks like there is no place to fit them in, so I glued the entire piece on the sides.. is drying now, so fingers crossed and hope it will work this time.. it's pretty expensive to replace it with a new one as on amazon is at £65.. I'm a graphic designer so I need my pen on daily basis.. especially now when I want to p…
Yesterday my wacom pen stylus just fell from my hand right onto the tip. I don't know how it slipped but the button jumped and I could see through the button holes the PCB. I unscrewed the pen tip and removed the rubber grip. I cleaned it on the inside from collected dust (just like you would get with the wheel mouse), and put everything back in. To put everything back in I started with the rubber grip which slided over the plastic pen, then put the button back into the holes and pressed gently until I heard a click which meant the buttons became stable. At last I screwed the pen tip back and now my pen it's functioning normal. If there are people clumsy like me hope this post will help you solve your problem. I added a photo to visualize it better :) Good luck everyone!
For more info please check my other post where I fixed a different problem with the button and it's all explained with the aid of photos.
