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 email@example.com
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. Kathryn

There isn't one on a wireless mouse.You get the sender with the mouse that goes into your USB port on computer.Put it back together and find the little USB sender in the blister pack,put a battery in the mouse,and your good to go.All i use is wireless mice.
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.
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
plz check the batteries of your wireless mouse. try reinserting them or may be you can try a new set of batteries.also try to reset the connection on your mouse by pressing the connect button under the mouse and on the reciever together and releasing both together
