What To Do When Huion Driver Shows Device Disconnected?

Encountered a Device disconnected problem when using Huion products but don't know how to fix it? Don't worry! This tutorial will help you.



Method 1. Uninstall and reinstall the driver

1) Uninstalling the driver. For windows, please check Three Methods to Uninstall Huion Drivers from Windows 7 to uninstall the driver properly and for Mac, please check How to Uninstall the HUION MAC Driver V13 or V14 Properly.

2) Unplug and Replug the USB cable. Please check if the cursor is working properly without installing the driver. If the cursor works normally, that means the hardware has no problem.

3) Reinstall the driver. If the hardware has no problem, please check if you have installed the driver correctly. You can visit our official website ( to download the corresponding driver for your graphic tablet and reinstall the driver. On how to install the driver properly on Windows, please check How to Install Huion Drivers on Windows?.  On how to install the driver properly on Mac, please check Solution to the Installation Problems under Mac Mojave.


Method 2. Use another USB cable to test.

If the above two methods won't work, please check if the USB cable is damaged. Please use another USB cable to test and see if it will work or not.


Method 3. Use another computer to test. 

If you have installed the driver properly without any issue but the problem still persists, please use another computer to test. If it works on another computer, it is possible that the previous computer system lacks some components which caused the driver to fail to connect.


If you have tried all the methods mentioned above but it still shows Device disconnected and the pen won't move after uninstalling the driver, then it might be possible that the port of the graphic tablet is damaged or the graphic tablet itself is damaged. If so, please contact our service staff at for further assistance.

    Was setting up my tablet recently for the first time in a while, installed the latest drivers from Huion and it wasn't working. My computer wouldn't detect it as a tablet. Uninstalled the drivers, then downloaded the previous version (you can download up to 3 on the website and it worked first time. Hope this helps someone out there!

    Unplug it and plug it back in; turn it off and turn it back on, uninstall it and reinstall it...  Okay I guess that is basic support for people that try nothing at all to fix it themselves.  Where do people go when we've tried all the simple stuff and still have this problem?

    I repeatedly followed this tutorial and others on the support and it did not help me at all. I use the gt-220 v2 and out of the blue, it stopped working. the screen still works as a screen but it is still shown to be disconnected and the pen will not work. I checked if the issue was with the pen I was using and tested it out with a spare pen, sadly no results.
    I hope there will be an updated driver to fix this issue.

    This article did not help me at all, I did all those things and device disconnected is still there. 

    The only difference between when it worked and now is it being off for a few hours.

    To those still having trouble- double check the version of your tablet you select while filtering for drivers on the download site. I accidentally selected the wrong type of H610PRO and it messed me up at first- but after I got the correct driver, I was good as new.

    i have the same problem. i can`t  customize the buttons of my tablet.
