Question about HP Wireless Optical Mouse

Cant get it back together

My wireless mouse quit working and I figured the batteries were the problem. I took the screws out and took it apart. Could not get to the batteries to remove them and when I turned the electrical pad over the tiny parts fell out of place. I dont know where the tiny spring with the black box go. I know where the other two parts go but not the spring.
My mouse is about 6 weeks old.
Thanks,
Kathryn

Thanks for this posting. I didn't even think it would be the battery and was nervous to pull everything apart, but it was easy thanks to the information from Solution #1.

I put together what I knew where it went, the put the whole thing together and looked at it before putting in the screws. I saw a hole and remembered a "button" there that moved sideways with a spring pushing it back into the original place. I reopened and after examining the part put it in that slot. I then put it together and it worked. I put the screws back in then and all is well
Thank you for the reply.
Glad I found your site. I will keep it if I ever need any help.

I have a Logitech LX-6 cordless optical mouse. Lately it's been double clicking when I press the left button - not always, but often enough that it's irritating. I'd like to take it apart and clean the...


Quite often there is a label on the bottom and this hides a screw which holds the mouse together. If there is a label on the bottom, try rubbing your finger over it to see if you can feel a hole underneath. Also on the bottom are plastic glide pads which help the mouse to move freely. If there is a large one towards the back then it may also hide a screw. Use a thin blade to lift off the glide pad and hopefully the sticky layer will remain sticky to make it easier to put back.

The scroll button on my mouse is stuck, will not turn.


If the scroll button is sticky, take a q-tip and clean the wheel off on the outside and as much in the inside as possible. Dampen the q-tip with water.

If that doesnt' work, look for screws that hold the mouse together, unscrew the screws and take the mouse apart. At that point clean the scroll button and then put everything back together.

If the mouse still doesn't work properly then at that point, you'll need to get a new mouse.

I took the mouse apart and I can't put it back


Make sure the circuit board and wires are all in place correctly so they aren't preventing the case from snapping/connecting back together.

Most of the time, it's just a small piece of wire or something that is getting in the way and preventing you from closing it back up.

Devices are made so small these days that they don't leave much room in them for loose wires and all.

I hope this helps :)

Mine did the same thing, so I took it apart. The flip hinge in the receiver wore through the wire running between the plug & the little board inside. I'm shopping for a new mouse.

Microsoft Wireless Optical mouse 2.0 Sticky central wheel


I just took mine apart to fix same problem, works much better but not sure for how long.

Quite simple to dismantle the unit.

Take the battery cover off, remove batteries.
There is a small screw in the middle of the battery cavity, you will need a very small Phillips head screwdriver.
Gently ease the base (holding circuit board) from the top shell
The wheel unit can be gently eased out of its cradle, use the small screwdriver to pop it out, watch out for the small spring between base and wheel unit, don't lose it
You can disconnect the wheel unit from the circuit board by unhooking the small plug connector

Now defluff, then clean the wheel - I used a tiny amount of turps on a cloth, anything similar should work. If you look closely the reason the wheel won't roll smoothly is that the gel ring on the wheel is too close and rubs at the front and back of the cradle. Once grime builds up, this problem makes the wheel unusable. Roll the wheel back and forth along a clean surface once cleaned, should start rolling freely again.

I also unscrewed the top shell from the mouse buttons (all one piece, pinch the plastic pegs in the centre of the shell together to release) and cleaned the whole unit up before putting it back together

Don't forget the spring when putting the wheel unit back. When screwing the base to the top shell make sure there is no play between the two parts before you put the batteries back in, mine was a bit tricky to get tight again but worked fine second attempt

Dell optical mouse quit working


This might sound very obvious, but have you replaced the battery?

Have you tried resetting the mouse and the USB receiver?
