The problem is with the driver for your tablet.
You need to contact the makers of your tablet.
For some unknown reason, many of the knockoff tablet vendors have version specific hacks in their driver software - so they have to be revised with every new release of Photoshop. We don't know why they do this.
Well since before to write this i already contacted the manufacturer and there is no answer yet.
Lets hope the manufacturer releases a new driver version more compatible with Photoshop.
I know this because when CS4 were released i had another kind of problem with the tablet and took around 6 or 7 months until they released a driver (back in then a beta and the later stable release) than was suitable.
So far is strange than no one had problems with the tablet but me.
Anyway i'll keep an eye here.
Ive got the same tablet and having the same problem. Works in the driver tool area but not in CS6. in fact it freezes up when i try to draw with the brush. Unfreezes when i click the mouse anywhere on the screen. Are you on windows or mac?
On Windows i am
ah ok i'm using mac at work - at home i have photoshop cs5 on windows and the tablet works perfectly there. Hope they release a new driver soon!
UPDATE: I just upgraded to Mountain Lion (10.8), re-installed my driver (redownloaded from the Genius website), and boom - my tablet works in PS perfectly *stoked*
maybe for Windows if you update to Windows 8 or something it will come right?

I just installed the new version of the Tablet Driver from the manufacturer. I have Windows8 and adobe cs6 and guess what
I still have no pressure sensitivity on Photoshop or Illustrator. Now what can i do, since the senstitivity works on the driver dialog but no on photoshop?
The problem is in the driver software - it is not providing the presurre information to Photoshop.
And yes, this is a constant problem with the knockoff tablet makers.
is strange but in photoshop after resetting all locked settings came to wake up.
However you need to set either pressure or size manually with the button on the toolbar.
Yeah? And how is that pen pressure works in every other program huh? Is it really the driver? How is it possible that i use pen pressure in Painttool Sai, Corel Painter, even in Krita (which is primary for Linux) with the same tablet as original poster, but ONLY in Photoshop CS6 it doesn't work?!
This is hardly to be caused by manufacturer driver, so please, stop lying to us and do something about your buggy software. Im ok with several mistakes that showed up with Creative Cloud im paying for, here and there, but such attitude you are showing is making me really mad!
It works on Win7 x64 after you uninstall any old driver and install latest driver(Driver 5.02 D20130521_D20130422_1500) from the manufacturer. I'm really amased actually that i found a driver from 2013 for this tablet. These cheap tablets are based on rogue code so don't expect them to conform in the long run.. sure they are just a bunch of sensors and some wires and a driver for them is just basic.. but it sure isn't adobe's fault.. even win diddn't recognise it's a tablet if i tried to calibrate it. So, at most, blame windows architecture or the manufacturer for not conforming to it.
