Solution 1: Check pen settings

The first step in troubleshooting common pen pressure issues is to check your pen settings. Depending on which Huion Kamvas tablet you own, you can usually find the settings in one of two places: the control panel or the pen settings. Both of these locations can be found under the “Digital Pen” tab in the Pen settings. In the control panel, you should make sure that “Pressure Sensitivity” is set to “On”. In the Pen settings, you should make sure that the setting for “Pressure Sensitivity” is set to “High”. If you make any changes, make sure to click “Apply” and then “OK” to save them.

Depending on the drivers, it’s possible you don’t see any option to turn the Pressure Sensitivity to on. In that case make sure that “Enable Windows Ink” is disabled. You can also press the pen nib and see if it says “VALID“.

Solution 2: Adjust the pressure sensitivity

After setting up your Huion Kamvas tablet and experiencing pen pressure issues, the second step to solving this issue is to adjust the pressure sensitivity. You can do this by selecting your Huion Kamvas tablet in the Control Panel and selecting “Digital Pen”.

Here you can adjust the pen sensitivity to the optimal level that suits your needs. This can be done by adjusting the “Pressure Sensitivity” slider and the “Pen Pressure Tolerance”. Depending on the pen you are using, you can also change the “Pen Pressure Mode” and the “Pen Pressure Curve” to find the most comfortable setting for you.

Solution 3: Install the latest driver

If the first two solutions didn’t work, the next thing you should do is make sure you have the latest driver installed. You can download the latest driver from Huion’s website. Make sure to first uninstall your old drivers first, to make sure you have a fresh install of the drivers.

Once it’s installed, you can restart your computer and see if the pen pressure is working correctly. If the pressure still isn’t right, you may need to adjust the tablet’s settings and try one of the next possible solutions.

Solution 4: Change another USB port / reconnect

Another thing you can do is to try a different USB port on your computer. This can help to ensure that the correct power is being supplied to your Huion pen and that the device can communicate correctly with your computer. Additionally, make sure that you are using the correct USB cable that is compatible with your device. After you have tried different ports and cables, restart your computer and try again.

Solution 5: Change the pen nib

Another solution that might help is to change the pen nib. To do this, you will need to remove the nib from the pen and then replace it with a new one. Follow these steps to replace your pen nib:

  • Unscrew the cap of your pen.
  • Gently pull out the pen nib from the pen.
  • Insert the new pen nib into the pen.
  • Secure the pen nib with the cap.

By replacing the pen nib, you may be able to solve your pen pressure issues and continue using your Huion Kamvas tablet.
