Pressure Sensitivity

Often times, the pressure sensitivity input in your Huion pen might start to malfunction or not meet your requirements. When this happens, you’ll be unable to finish your desired design with utmost precision. If this is the case with you, simply move the slider to the left to make it less sensitive. Given that you want to increase the sensitivity, slide it to the right.

Driver Issues

Another reason your Huion tablet pen isn’t working could be that the tablet driver is backdated. Presuming that this is the issue with your pen, try installing the driver on your PC with the driver CD that comes with the packaging. Just in case the driver CD is outdated as well, install the latest driver by yourself. For this, simply visit the Huion official website, search for the driver compatible with your Windows/Mac and install it right away. And you’re done!

How to Connect

In order to connect your Huion pen to your PC or laptop, just go ahead and insert one end of the charging cable into the charging port of the stylus. Then, use the other end of the cable to connect the pen with your desired device, be it a PC or a laptop. And voila!

Nevertheless, sometimes the pen might stop responding even when connected to a charging cable. The underlying reason could be the cable being damaged or worn out. If and when this happens, get your charging cable replaced with a brand new one.

Moving cursor- Lagging

Often, after years of use, your Huion stylus might start to lag. This will enable the cursor to move slower than ever whenever you use software like Adobe Photoshop or Paint. These imprecise and hard to control strokes may easily ruin your artwork, which is definitely a bummer.

But what should be done to solve this issue? Simply update your firmware. Go to the Huion Firmware section from their official website and follow the steps. However, all of this should be done using a Windows PC. Given that this doesn’t resolve your problem, contact the Huion customer service with the required details of your Huion device.

Moving cursor has stopped

Sometimes, not only does the pen start to lag, but also stops to function completely. Whenever you face this issue, restarting your driver could do just the trick! Simply go to “Task Manager” and disable the HuionTablet.exe program. Once this is done, run it again to reinstall.

Charging Issues

Occasionally, customers have faced this issue when using their Huion pen for years at a length. To troubleshoot charging issues, firstly make sure to know which type of pen comes with your tablet. Then move on to solving it-

  • Pens with no battery- When this happens, it’s usually due to the pen nib being worn out. For this, simply get a new nib and change it right away.

Not Turning On

Given that you are unable to turn on your pen after a few hours of inactivity, the cause could be Huion’s sleep mode being activated. On such notes, disable the sleep settings and try turning your Huion pen again. Usually, this will solve your issue. If this doesn’t help, contact the customer care right away!

Pen Keeps Hovering Around
