eraser tool would only "paint" like a brush. It would use the color in the background palette. The Restore preferences fixed the problem. I will try to attach the corrupt file. I am using a tablet as well. anyway, i can't upload a file....

The eraser tool is a kind of brush, and on the background all it can do is paint with the background color.

If you're erasing to history, then it would insert the image content from the chosen history state.

And you didn't tell us which version of Photoshop you were using.
