Interactive Pen Display
INSTALLATION GUIDE
AND USER’S MANUAL
1
Introduction and Overview
The Wacom® Cintiq™ 15X Interactive Pen Display combines an LCD display with a Wacom tablet.
This gives you a direct point-and-draw-on-screen interface that can be used with a Personal Computer (PC), Macintosh® computer, or SGI™ or Sun® workstation. Cintiq’s basic components
include a Wacom tablet internally mounted behind a 15.0" diagonal TFT color LCD monitor, and
Wacom’s Grip Pen.
Your Cintiq Interactive Pen Display offers a number of significant advantages over a standard
display:
■
Integrated input and display
■
Pressure-sensitive drawing directly on the display screen
■
Reduced power consumption and heat generation
■
Requires less work space
■
Flicker free and easier on the eyes.
This manual describes how to install the Cintiq hardware and software. It also describes how to
use Cintiq and the Grip Pen.
Note that the computer treats the two parts of Cintiq (the LCD display and the Wacom
tablet) as separate pieces of hardware. Therefore, the installation process is completed in two
stages.
■
First, you will install the LCD display portion of Cintiq.
■
In the second stage you will install Cintiq’s tablet functionality.
Both stages require hardware and software installations and adjustments. Please follow all
instructions carefully.
You can find information on using the Wacom Tablet Control Panel for customizing your tablet
and pen settings in the online Help, located under the Help menu in the Wacom Tablet Control
Panel. See Learning More About Cintiq on page 27.
The following are not included with this product:
■

Installation
SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
Before installing Cintiq, make sure that your computer meets the following system requirements:
■
Macintosh. OS 8.6, 9, or 10.1 and higher. DVI or VGA video connector, available USB port,
and CD-ROM drive. ADC connectors require an ADC to DVI adaptor (not included).
■
PC. Windows 95, 98, Me, NT 4.0 (SP-3), 2000, or XP. DVI or VGA video connector, available
USB or serial port, and CD-ROM drive. (Windows 95 and NT 4.0 (SP-3) do not support USB.)
■
SGI and Sun workstations. Additional purchase of Wacom UNIX kit. IRIX 6.5 or later
for SGI. Solaris 2.6 or later for Sun. VGA or DVI video connector, available serial port, and
CD-ROM drive.
Cintiq supports both digital (DVI) and analog (VGA) video signals. Connecting Cintiq to a DVI
video card generally results in optimum performance because a digital video signal will display a
better image and exhibit less cursor lag on the screen.
If you plan to install a video card with digital output, complete the video card hardware and
software installation before connecting Cintiq. If you have another display that is compatible with
your video card, you can connect that display to the card in order to verify that the video card is
operating correctly. For information on digital video cards that have been tested with Cintiq, refer
to Wacom’s Web site at http://www.wacom.com/cintiq
There are two primary steps to the installation process:
■
Step 1: LCD Display Installation
■
Step 2: Tablet Installation
Be sure to follow ALL installation instructions carefully. Failure to do so may cause
damage to Cintiq or to the video card in your computer.
12
STEP1: LCD DISPLAY INSTALLATION
Cintiq can be used alone or with another display, such as a CRT monitor or LCD projector. To use
Cintiq with another display, you will need two video cards or a video card with dual output.
Depending on the capabilities of your video card and operating system, you may be able to set up
Cintiq as a mirrored, extended, or independent display. Refer to your video card documentation
for more information on its capabilities.
In the first stage of the installation process you will install Cintiq as a display on your system.
As you work through the first stage of the installation process, please refer to the LCD Display
Cabling Diagram on the following page when making cable connections.
Important: Do not connect the USB or serial data cable until instructed to do so.
■
Turn off your computer.
Caution: Never connect or disconnect the video or power cable while your computer or
Cintiq are powered on—this can damage the LCD display or video card.
■
If your computer has only one video connector, you will need to unplug your previous display. Determine if your computer has a digital (DVI-I, DVI-D, or ADC) or analog (VGA)
connector, and set the Digital/Analog (DVI/VGA) switch located on the back of Cintiq for the
video connection you are using. Move the switch down for Digital (DVI-I, DVI-D, or ADC),
and move it up for Analog (VGA). See A
■
If you are connecting to a DVI-I or DVI-D connector, plug one
end of the DVI to DVI cable into Cintiq, and the other end into your
computer’s video card.
■
If you are connecting to an ADC connector, you will need to
obtain an ADC to DVI adaptor. Plug one end of the DVI to DVI
cable into Cintiq. Next, plug the other end of the cable into the
ADC to DVI adaptor. Then plug the ADC adaptor end into the ADC
connector on your video card.
■
If you are connecting to a VGA connector, plug the DVI end of
the VGA to DVI cable into Cintiq. Then plug the VGA end of the
cable into the VGA connector on your video card.

Each Cintiq LCD panel is produced under very stringent quality standards. Production techniques cannot
guarantee an absolutely perfect TFT display, and some panels may exhibit a certain number of pixels that show
an incorrect color. Refer to the specifications on page 43 for more information.
If an image has fine striping (such as screen stripes), it may flicker or display a moiré pattern.
Do not apply excessive pressure on the display surface, it may cause the appearance of a moiré or pooling
pattern. If you notice this action, use less pressure on the display screen when working with the pen.
When a still image is displayed for a long period of time without refreshing the screen, an after-image may
remain for a short period of time. To prevent this, Wacom recommends using a screen saver or other power
management feature.
15
■
The maximum resolution of Cintiq is 1024 x 768, True Color (24 bit). As necessary, configure the
display control panel settings for the proper size and color resolution. The number of colors is
constrained by the capabilities of your video card. Refer to the video card manufacturer’s documentation for details.
For Windows, if you are using Cintiq as a secondary display, you may first need to enable Cintiq
in your Display Properties control panel.
■
After the display portion of Cintiq is working to your satisfaction, move on to the next section (Step
2: Tablet Installation) to install the Wacom tablet portion of Cintiq.
Note: For troubleshooting tips, please refer to page 34.
STEP2: TABLET INSTALLATION
After you have completed the LCD display installation and configured the display settings, you will
need to connect the Cintiq tablet cabling and install the Wacom tablet driver software.
When installing the tablet portion of Cintiq, refer to the Tablet Cabling Diagram on the following page.
■
First, shut down and power off your computer and Cintiq. If a USB port is available, Wacom
recommends installing Cintiq as a USB device.
■
For USB installation: Choose the Cintiq USB cable
Plug the round end into the Cintiq port labeled USB. Plug the other end into an available USB port
on your computer. See E in the connection diagram on page 17.
Important: Make sure you select the correct cable and that you plug it into the correct port.
■
For Serial installation: Choose the Cintiq serial cable
Plug the round end into the Cintiq port labeled
. Plug the other end into an available serial
port on your computer. See F in the connection diagram on page 17. For UNIX workstations,
you may need to use an appropriate adaptor from the Wacom UNIX kit to connect the serial cable.
Important: Make sure you select the correct cable and that you plug it into the correct port. If the
connection is difficult to make, do not force the plug into the connector. Instead, verify that there
are no bent pins and that you have the correct cable and location. Do not plug in or unplug the
serial connector when your computer is running—this may damage your serial card.
■
At the back of Cintiq, insert all three cables between the cable guides and then slide the connector
panel cover into place over the cable connectors. Do not skip this step, as the panel cover will
reduce the possibility of accidentally disconnecting the cables.

Using the Grip Pen
WORKING WITH THE GRIP PEN (UP-911E)
As you work with Cintiq, you can rest your hand lightly on the display screen, just as if it were a
drawing board or sheet of paper. Hold the Grip Pen as you would a pencil. Make sure the side
switch is in a convenient location where you can press it with your thumb or forefinger, but won’t
accidentally press it while drawing.
Eraser
DuoSwitch
(side switch)
Tip switch
Note: The Grip Pen
should never be stored
in a container where it
will rest on its tip or
eraser. When the pen
is not in use, place your
pen in the pen stand or
lay it flat on your desk.
Pen Tip
The pen is activated as soon as it enters proximity, about 5 mm (0.2 in), above the Interactive Pen
Display screen. This allows you to position the screen cursor or use the DuoSwitch without
touching the pen tip to the display screen.
When pressure is applied to the pen tip, the tip switch is turned on and the pen simulates a mouse
button click. The tip click pressure can be adjusted in the Wacom Tablet Control Panel.
Please refer to the online Help for details.
Eraser
To use the eraser, hold the Grip Pen upside down. When the eraser is within proximity of the
active area, the tablet reports the pen coordinates and the pressure applied to the eraser.
The eraser can be used as an eraser or assigned to another function, depending on the application.
The tablet distinguishes the tip switch from the eraser switch. Refer to the online Help for the pen
settings.
DuoSwitch
The DuoSwitch is programmable, and can be used to perform the same click and double-click
functions as the tip switch. Toggle the DuoSwitch in either direction to activate the upper or lower
button functions. Please refer to the online Help for more information on switch settings.
Note: If you do not care to use the side switch, you can remove if by following the directions
in DuoSwitch Removal and Installation, on page 40.
22
USING A PEN
Pointing and Selecting
Move the Grip Pen above the Cintiq display screen to position the screen cursor. The cursor
jumps to the location where you place the pen (absolute positioning). Press the pen tip on the
display screen to make a selection.
Note: If the screen cursor does not closely follow the pen tip, you will need to calibrate the
Interactive Pen Display. (See Calibrating Cintiq on page 26.) If the screen cursor does not
jump to a position close to the pen tip when you place the pen on the display screen, then the
tablet driver did not load yet. In this case, refer to the online Help for troubleshooting tips.
(See Learning More About Cintiq on page 27 for information on accessing the online Help.)
Clicking
Tap the display screen once with the pen tip, or touch the pen to the display screen with enough
pressure to generate a mouse click.
Double-Clicking
Press the upper side switch (Windows) or lower side switch (Macintosh), or quickly tap the
display screen twice in the same place with the pen tip. Double-clicking is easier when the pen is
perpendicular to the tablet screen.
Tip: You can make navigating with the pen easier by configuring Windows to select when the
pen is over an icon and to launch the icon with a single click. To turn on this feature:
Windows Me, 2000, or XP. Open a folder, select the Tools pull-down menu, and Folder
Options.... From the General tab select the option Single-click to open an item (point to
select).
Windows 98. Open a folder, select the View pull-down menu, and Folder Options....
From the General tab select the Web style option.
Dragging
Select an object, then slide the pen tip across the display screen to move the object.
Erasing
In supporting applications, the pen’s eraser works like the eraser on a pencil. In text applications,
use the eraser to select text, then lift the eraser from the tablet to delete the text.
23
Working with Cintiq
As you work with Cintiq, you can rest your hand lightly on the display screen, just as if it were a
drawing board or sheet of paper.
■
Because the Cintiq drawing surface will be a little higher than your desk, consider adjusting
the height of you desk or chair to assure comfortable use of the device.
■
When working with Cintiq, maintain a good posture at all times and change your position if
you feel any discomfort due to your work position or the weight of Cintiq.
■
Do not pull the cables out of their connections by accidentally moving Cintiq too far from the
computer.
To minimize fatigue, organize your work area so you can work comfortably. Position Cintiq and
your keyboard so they are easily accessible without unnecessary reaching. The Interactive Pen
Display should be positioned so you can view it comfortably with a minimum of eyestrain.
Here are some other points to keep in mind:
■
Take short breaks between tasks to stretch and relax your muscles.
■
Use a gentle grip when working with the pen.
■
Alternate tasks throughout the day.
■
Minimize awkward postures and repetitive movements that cause discomfort.
■
Alternate between different modes of use.
Next Step: If you have not already done so, learn about
the basics of customizing the Grip Pen. See page 25

Caring for Cintiq
Keep the Grip Pen and the Cintiq LCD screen surface clean. Dust and dirt particles can stick to the
pen and cause wear to the display screen surface. Regular cleaning will help prolong the life of
your LCD screen surface and pen. Keep Cintiq and the Grip Pen in a clean, dry place and avoid
extremes in temperature. Room temperature is best. Cintiq and the Grip Pen are not made to
come apart (except where specifically indicated for removal and replacement of the pen’s
DuoSwitch). Taking apart the product will void your warranty.
CLEANING
To clean the Cintiq casing or the Grip Pen, use a soft cloth and mild detergent (such as
dishwashing liquid) diluted with water. Do not use paint thinner, benzine, alcohol, or other
solvents to clean the unit casing or pen.
To clean the display screen, use an anti-static cloth or a slightly damp cloth. When cleaning,
apply only a light amount of pressure to the display screen and do not make the surface wet.
Do not use detergent to clean the display screen; this may damage the coating on the screen.
Please note that damage of this kind is not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
REPLACING THE PEN TIP
The pen tip will wear with normal use. When the pen tip gets too short, you can replace it with
one of the extra tips that came with the pen.
To remove the old tip:
Clasp it with a pair of tweezers, needle-nosed
plier, or similar instrument and pull the old tip
straight out of the pen.
To insert a new tip:
Slide it straight into the barrel of the pen.
Firmly push the tip until it stops. The new
tip will slide into the correct position.
If the pen tip wears and becomes angular, it may damage the coating on the Cintiq display screen.
To avoid this, periodic tip replacement is recommended.
WARNING Prevent children from swallowing the pen tip or
side switch. The pen tip or side switch may accidentally be
pulled out if children are biting on them.
33
Troubleshooting
If the Wacom tablet driver failed to load properly, first perform any recommended action in the
error message on your screen.
If the Cintiq hardware does not function properly, refer to the troubleshooting section below.
If necessary, refer to the online Help for additional troubleshooting information.
Answers to frequently asked questions and information on known issues can be found on the
Wacom web site. See pages 38 and 39 to locate the Internet address for your region.
TESTING CINTIQ
If Cintiq does not power up, check the following:
■
Verify that the cabling between Cintiq and your computer is correct. Be sure the power supply
is plugged into an active AC outlet and that it is connected to Cintiq. Verify that any other
display connection(s) to your video card are correct.
■
Verify that Cintiq is powered on.
■
The Cintiq power LED should light whenever the cabling is properly connected and the Cintiq
power switch is on. When the computer is turned on and a video signal is received, the Cintiq
display will activate and the power LED will glow green. If there is no display, verify that your
video card has been properly installed and is functional. If you have another display that is
compatible with your video card, you can connect that display to the card in order to verify
that the video card is operating correctly.
TESTING THE TABLET AND
GRIP PEN
If you cannot make a selection on the display screen with the Grip Pen:
■
Test the pen by pressing the pen tip against the surface of the tablet. The status LED should
light green.
■
Now, without applying pressure to the pen tip (but keeping the pen within proximity of the
tablet surface), press the side switch. The status LED should again light green.
■
Next, bring the pen’s eraser within proximity of the tablet surface and press it against the
tablet. The status LED should light green.
If the status LED does not light green for these tests, be sure you are using the correct pen that
came with Cintiq. If you are still having problems, you may have a defective pen or tablet.

Some users prefer to remove the DuoSwitch when working with the Grip Pen. For example, you
may want to remove the switch in order to focus on a drawing and eliminate any accidental clicks
that would occur if you unintentionally pressed on the switch. Note, however, that removing the
DuoSwitch also removes the button functionality it offers. For most users it is unnecessary to
remove the DuoSwitch.
To remove the DuoSwitch:
1. Firmly clasp the DuoSwitch in
the middle and pull out.
(Press in on the rubberized grip
in order to better grasp the
switch.)
Important: Do not remove the
switch by prying it from either
end as this may damage your
Pen. NEVER adjust the trimmer
capacitor that will be visible
when the switch is removed.
When using the pen without the
DuoSwitch, always replace the
original rubberized grip with the
optional grip in order to protect
the trimmer capacitor.

2. Remove the pen tip cone by
turning it counterclockwise.
Then pull the grip forward over
the pen tip.
3. Install the optional grip by aligning the pen case rails with the
grooves inside the grip and
pushing the grip over the pen
tip. Then replace the pen tip
cone by turning it clockwise
onto the pen.

To Install the DuoSwitch:
1. Remove the pen tip cone by
turning it counterclockwise.
Then pull the grip forward over
the pen tip.
2. Install the original grip (the one
with the DuoSwitch access slot)
by aligning the pen case rails
with the grooves inside the grip
and pushing the grip over the
pen tip. When properly positioned, the DuoSwitch access
hole will reveal the trimmer capacitor. Then install the pen tip
cone by turning it clockwise
onto the pen.
3. Align the DuoSwitch into place,
making sure to match the switch
position to the grip molding.
Then gently press in on the
DuoSwitch until it snaps into
place.

USING AN ALTERNATE MOUNT OR STAND
If you will be using Cintiq in an installation that requires the use of an alternate
mounting platform, you can remove the
adjustable stand from the unit and
mount the pen display onto a VESA conforming mount arm or stand.
A VESA mounting platform will require
mount screws that are 4 mm wide with a
0.7 mm pitch (M4 Regular), and a maximum screw clearance depth of 15 mm.
Exceeding the clearance depth of 15 mm
will damage Cintiq internal components.
To remove the adjustable stand and
attach Cintiq to a different mounting
platform:
1. Turn off your computer and power
off Cintiq. Then disconnect all
cables from the unit.
2. Protect the display screen surface by
spreading a soft cloth onto a flat
table and placing Cintiq face down
on the cloth.
3. Remove the four screws and lift the
adjustable stand assembly away from
the body of the unit.
4. Using the appropriate screws for
your mounting platform, firmly attach Cintiq to the alternate mounting
platform.
5. Refer to the appropriate installation
instructions, beginning on page 12,
and reattach the cabling.
42
CAUTION When attaching Cintiq onto an alternate
mounting platform, be sure to follow all
instructions in the documentation supplied
by the platform manufacturer. If improperly installed, the unit could fall, resulting
in damage to the unit or physical injury.

LCD quality:
Each Cintiq LCD panel is produced under very stringent quality
standards. Production techniques cannot guarantee an absolutely
perfect TFT display, and some panels may exhibit a certain number
of pixels that show an incorrect color.
Wacom quality standards are based on internationally accepted
standards for LCD displays. Wacom requires 99.999% of the
786,432 pixels on each Cintiq to function perfectly, and
does not allow any pixel to be always white or always black.
A small number of pixels (8 or less) are allowed to show a wrong
color for some parts of the color spectrum.
