NO green light on wireless mouse. My wireless mouse has the red light on when the new batteries are in the device. I know that it needs to turn green to work. I have installed the drivers, is there an update that I don't know about?

SOURCE: Microsoft wireless notebook optical mouse 1023 - not working!

If you know that the battery is good then try this next. There is a VERY tiny shark-fin shaped spring-loaded button on the bottom of the mouse that is pressed in, when you insert the receiver, while the mouse is not in use, that turns off the mouse to save the batteries. If you haven't used the mouse in a while, it can get stuck in the in position, so that when you pull out the receiver, it doesn't spring out and turn the mouse on (indicated by the red light on the bottom). If you notice that the light isn't coming on. Just try manually pushing in the little shark-fin thing a couple times to make it spring back out. After a couple times, you should be able to get it unstuck and the red light should come on.

The flashing red and green lights means that now it's in discoverable mode and it's time to add it as a bluetooth device.

SOURCE: wireless mouse will not work with battery

Check the battery connections to make sure they are making contact and not corroded. Make sure you hit the reset button which is on the bottom of the mouse so it can reestablish contact with the USB stick.

The red light on my mouse keeps on blinking


Here's a guide;
What do the battery lights mean on my mouse? Some keyboard and mouse models feature a battery light that shows the current status of the batteries. The following table describes the different lights and states.
Light
Device Model Status Single long green blink Rechargeable Batteries are good. This occurs when batteries are first installed or every time that the device is turned on. Slow green blink Rechargeable Device is docked in the charging station and is charging properly. Steady green Rechargeable Device is docked in the charging station and does not need additional charging. Steady green Presenter Mouse (Japanese version) Laser pointer is on. Red/green blink Wireless Device is discoverable (trying to connect to the transceiver). Slow red blink Non-rechargeable Batteries are low and need to be replaced. Slow red blink Rechargeable Batteries are low and need recharging. Fast red blink Rechargeable Device is docked in the charging station, but there is a charging error.
Reasons for errors: The wrong type of battery is installed; the battery or batteries are missing; or the battery connection is bad.
Solutions: Make sure that the correct battery or batteries are installed, and are installed correctly. If necessary, remove the batteries, wipe them with a clean cloth, and reinsert them. Steady red Presenter Mouse (Standard version) Laser pointer is on.

My usb wireless mouse receiver displays a red light on the far right on what appears to be a picture of a battery. The green light lights up the number 9 on the left. WHAT DOES THE RED LIGHT MEAN? I don't...


I just had the same problem. If you look at the picture carefully, it's the mouse & the red light means you need to change the battery in your mouse. The picture just to the left of mouse picture is the keyboard so if that turns red, then you need to change the batteries in your keyboard.

Microsoft Wireless 4000 Mouse - No Red Light on Base


The red laser light stopped working on mine and it turned out to be the connetion between the battery tray and the circuit board. There is a metal tab on the circuit board and a matching one on the battery tray. When the battery tray slides in correctly the two tabs touch and viola (!), my red laser light came back on. Maybe one tab or the other got bent when I slammed the tray in crooked when replacing a battery- who knows.

Microsoft 1023 Mouse


I've had the same problem with a Microsoft wireless mouse. Ended up throwing it away and getting a new one. Chances are while in storage or being carried around, something has gone wrong. Also, if you kept the batteries in it while it was not in use, that can damage the circuitry (sometimes).

As an after thought, when you started the computer, did you see a message saying it was installing a new USB device or a new pointing device or a new user interface device? If not, then the computer is not finding the antenna and without the computer recognition you'll get no response from the mouse.

Microsoft Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse Not Connecting


After reading on Microsoft about replacing the batteries, down loading drivers and "press the button on the receiver and the connect button the receiver" - I got frustrated and almost gave it flight. Then my wife stepped in and realized that there was a green reset button on the USB connector as well. (who knew?) SO.... you press the green light (which is a button) and release it.... should blink. Then go to THE MOUSE portion and press the connect button for 5 seconds or so.... and wala...... One mouse that plays again! This ones gonna cost me! :) I hope this one works for ya!
