    Wacom's cth-470 inverts pressure randomly (Mac)

    Hello everyone.


    Hello everyone! I use a bamboo model on a mac. The cth-470.


    Sometimes the tablet works just fine. But it also tends to invert the pressure randomly (it happens with all art programs hence the reason I know it's the tablet). Say pressing hard gives me thin lines when it should give me thicker lines and viceversa. And then it comes back to normal, so that's another reason I know it's not a setting but some kind of bug.



    The snesibilty also weakens randomly, and I'm forced to make the pen more sensible in settings. But that's not that big of a problem, I guess.


    Randomly it works just fine.


    I won't complain as the guarantee expired years ago. But I just want to know if it's a driver issue or if it's a hardware malfunction so I can focus on buying a new tablet or a new pen, and stop wasting time installing and reinstalling the drivers. Thank you

    Nope. It didn't work either. Could it be a hardware issue?
