What causes Wacom pen pressure not working in Adobe Photoshop?

Access the drawing board test function at: Wacom Tablet Properties / about / diagnose … Diagnostics function allows you to check other parameters of the drawing board are still working properly.

Use a pen to test on the drawing board, if the Pressure still changes with the force, the Wacom is still normal. The error may be caused by software or drivers.

If the Pressure is always at 0%, it means that the pen or tablet has a hardware failure.

Solutions

In case of hardware damage, it is best to take it to repair/warranty. This case happens very rarely.

Incorrect driver settings and pen defects can also cause you to lose pressure sensitivity. The following steps will help you determine if any of the above issues are causing your pressure sensitivity problem:

First, make sure that the current driver is installed from the Wacom Driver page, and that your tablet is connected correctly to the computer.
Reset the driver preferences to ensure that a specific setting isn’t causing your pen issues. Please follow the steps here.
Follow the steps to uninstall and reinstall the Wacom Driver found below

Next, try to test the pen in a different software. Is the issue is only found in the one program, try resetting the preferences for that program.

Try changing the nib. I have faced this many times with Wacom/Photoshop. Loss of pen pressure sensitivity is a symptom of a damaged pen nib. Change it and instantly photoshop starts working. This is a problem many people have. Photoshop will recognize the pen pressure (without even closing and reopening the PS).

It’s also worth noting that sometimes there’s also no need to actually change the nib, just open the pen, pull the nib out, put it back in, and that’s enough to do the trick.
