Really not happy right now.
So, I just got the drawing tablet I mentioned, and since I couldn't afford a new one I got a refurbished one from a high rated company on Amazon, one that was mentioned in 'like new' condition, and it looked pretty good coming out of the box. Worked okay for a little while too-I was able to get a picture done with it, though it acted a little funky, I figured it was either the copy of Photoshop I had or just a harmless thing that it'd do sometimes. Well-I tried to use it to do the header I mentioned earlier, and it won't draw. At all. It won't move the cursor a single pixel. I tried changing the battery on the pen, doing a hard restart, uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers-nothing. The light on the tablet is on and blinking like it did while it was working, but it's still completely unresponsive. I'm pretty sure it's the pen, but I can't find anywhere to buy the pen just by itself, and I certainly can't afford to buy a brand new drawing tablet right now. BARGLE.
Since I can't get ahold of anyone right now, I'm going to try calling the company tomorrow and see if they can't tell me where to get a new pen or what to do to fix the one I have, because-this thing is pretty much my only income source right now. Doing commissions for people, and this blog, are all I have right now since I can't find a job anywhere (California's job market sucks, especially for someone who was unable to afford college) so...yeah. Really not a good thing to have malfunctioning right now.
*sigh* It seems like it's always one thing or another going wrong. Someone shoot me.
The tablet is a Genius G-Pen f610 6X10" if anyone's familiar with it and can give me some advice for it.
