Has anyone found a fix (short of getting rid of) for Logitech MX 600 Laser Mouse pointer erratic operation?? Seems to work OK on a Flat smooth surface, but jumps all over the place on any mouse pad I have tried. Thx....Dan

  1. Mouse is not clean.
  2. Optical portion of mouse is blocked.
  3. Moisture or other material on finger.
Mouse is not clean Users who have an optical mechanical mouse (most common mouse for desktop computers) are likely experiencing erratic behavior because the mouse is not clean or is dirty. Optical portion of mouse is blocked
Users who have an optical mouse are likely experiencing erratic behavior because a portion of the optical eye is blocked. Most commonly this is caused by a hair.
Moisture or other material on finger Users who are using a touchpad may experience erratic behavior because of moisture or other material on the finger such as lotion.
Mouse has been cleaned and still has problems If you've cleaned the mouse and continue to encounter issues and this mouse has worked in the past fine unfortunately your mouse is likely defective. One additional test that can be done to help determine if this is the case or not is to connect the mouse to another computer. Otherwise we suggest replacing the mouse.

Why does my logitech mouse pointer shake so much when it gets close to an 'action' box?


You should check your settings for the logitech software and also in control panel for mouse. Look for something that says snap to point. What happens is if you have that set the mouse will jump when it is close to a clickable object.

How can I clean a Logitech MX 1000 Bluetooth?


<p>The Logitech MX 1000 is a laser mouse that connects to your home computer. It is called a laser mouse, it uses an optical beam instead of a rubber ball navigation. Over time, the area around the package is dusty or dirty and affect the functionality of a mouse. If this is the case with the mouse, a quick cleaning to start working perfectly in no time. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Disconnect the mouse cable from the USB port of your computer and turn the mouse upside down. Note the lens optical beam in the middle of the bottom of the mouse. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Bang on the bottom of the mouse to get rid of dust and dirt that have accumulated near the lens optical beam over time. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Use microfiber cloth (a different substance can damage the lens) and clean the bottom surface of the mouse as well. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Let your nails along the sides of the rubber feet on the bottom of the mouse all the dirt that accumulated in the crevices to remove. <br />

A visit to the Logitech site will / should solve the problems. It's probably a driver problem but if you install Setpoint (Logitech) then that has a few tests included with should resolve the issues.

When this behavior is observed when using a Logitech product withinWindows® XP, it may be caused by a feature within Windows called"enhanced pointer precision". This feature may conflict with Logitech's software, causing the erratic movement. Enhanced pointerprecision became available in Service Pack 2 and therefore is notapplicable in any version of Windows® XP without Service Pack 2installed. For more information on enhanced pointer precision,please click HERE. If this link does not work, then you should go to Microsoft and search for Knowledge Base article 895550.

Please see these articles from the Logitech database for possible troubleshooting tips as well:

Jerky mouse


Try using a different Mouse Pad or surface. This is a cause of jerky and erratic mouse movement.
Hope this is of some help. Bud

To work around this problem, turn off the Enhance pointer precision feature: 1. Click Start, click Run, type control mouse, and then click OK. 2. Click the Pointer Options tab, click to clear the Enhance pointer precision check box, and then click OK.
Also see this article from Logitech.

The surface on which you use the mouse plays an important role in its tracking. The optical sensor must use the pattern on the surface to track the position of the cursor. Therefore, using the mouse on a glass or otherwise see-through surface will inhibit the ability of the sensor to track the cursor. Also, if you are using the mouse on a reflective surface, such as a mirror or shiny metal desk, you may experience tracking problems. In both these situations, try using the mouse on a mouse pad or piece of paper. By using the mouse on a white sheet of paper, you can also conserve battery life. Other surfaces that have been known to cause tracking problems are:
  • Some wood grains
  • Grooved surfaces
Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Erratic Logitech cordless optical mouse


Hi,
ive had the mx700 for two years and im very comfortable with it.
I think you problem lies not with the mouse or the driver, but rather the mousepad.
Since the mx700 is not a lasermouse, but "only" optical, it still needs a decent pad to work flawlessly.
Ive had problems with these kind of mice using blank paper, magazines or tablesurfaces.
Try to get a real mousepad from somewhere (should be really cheap), that should do the trick =)

I upgradet to a razer diamondback later which is a laser mouse (1600dpi, while optical mice (with the red light) have 800dpi). Some ppl say that this is too much, and not needed (you can get even higher specs =) but i felt a world of difference, it just works everywhere! (except for mirrors and glas =)
