Mouse stopped working

My wireless optical mouse has been working fine for over a year. Now it has developed a problem I can't seem to solve. The mouse's LED will not turn on when you move the mouse. I can press the green code change key on the bottom of the mouse and it works for about 20 seconds until the LED goes out. It won't come on when you move the mouse.

Re: Mouse stopped working

I had the same problem. I find that a multi colored mouse pad seems to solve the problem. Actually the best ive found is a wood grain or striped mouse pad.

Usually if it's under warranty take it to the computer shop where you bought it.

Replaced Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 2000 doesn't work

I would have suggested opening up your old mouse and cleaning the right click button first.

Generally, wireless devices have a connect button that finds the frequencies of the devices. On the receiver press this button, then press the button on the bottom of your new mouse. the receivers lights will stop flashing once connected.

Microsoft wireless mouse 700 works, slows, then stops

Seems like new batteries did the trick. Should start simple.

But I am not totally convinced. I will keep an eye on it.

Mouse only works for a few seconds and then stops.

have you changed the batteries recently? Wireless mice seem to eat batteries faster. I have a Dell wireless mouse. It will work fine for months and then nothing. That's when I know to change out the batteries. If your batteries are fresh, make sure they are seated in their slots securely.

Wireless optical mouse 98763!!

there is a reconnect button on the receaver I beleave you need to press the reconnect button on the receaver first then the one on the mouse to reconnect. Also make sure you have charged and working battery in place.

This seems to be a old problem and if you don\t need assistance in solving it. It would be great if you would share to the world how you fixed your problem so other users can benefit from your experience. 

Thank you,

HP Wireless Optical Mouse Fading

Ref wireless mouse. Not sure if you have a solution yet but it seems there could be 2 sources to the problem. First a weak or decaying laser. Second, something you have introduced recently that could interfere with the wireless signal eg mobile phone, another wireless device, cordless phone, telephone wires close to receiver or maybe something else. Not sure what you do if the laser is failing other than clean the lens. You might have to get it checked or try a friends mouse to see if it is better. There s also a setting than can change the sensitivity of the mouse. Have you looked at those settings.

Wireless mouse quits working after a few seconds

Did you replace the batteries? This sounds like it may be the problem. A year is a lomg time for batteries depending on how often you use the computer.
After changing the batteries, you may have to do this:
Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch.
Hope this helps you. Bud
