    Yes, I have changed the batteries... The mouse will work after resetfor a minute or two then it stops communicating with the receiver. Both the receiver and the mouse revert to a solid red light, the "communication flashing" stops.

    Hi Sybabe!



    I do appreciate your effort! It appears the mouse has an attitude of its own! Mine is still not working perhaps as you have phrased "It's not jealous eough yet". I'll try patience with it!



    Thanks!

This may be a "duh", BUT, have you checked the battery of the mouse? You can either test the battery with a mutlimeter for its charge, and most likely, it would be gone, or simply replace the battery.

    Okay, let's approach it a little differently. Did you do anything different right before the mouse stopped working? Installed or removed any applications? You don't necessarily have to rate this post. I am trying to gather more information to help with your issue

  • zabrina liang Nov 20, 2008

    Ok, the mouse's light should stay solid, as well as the receiver so that is a good thing. From my experience, sometimes, wireless mouse could be VERY sensitive and temperamental. I switched my batteries out maybe more than 10 times. The batteries were good, but for some reason, decided to act complacent. After I settled back into my routine, using the trackpad for about a day, the mouse decided it wants to work again, and it has been working ever since. This does not seem very logical...but the way I explain it to myself is, the mouse needs to get jealous first (see that you have another alternateive) before it gets out of its lazy mode.) Now, if this doesn't work...granted, it's' only a hypothesis, then you may want to change your method. (Think of how you relate to others, how you get their attention, and it just might be crazy enough to work) Okay, so I've let you in on my secret. If this doesn't work...please don't give me a bad rating...like i said, it's just a hypothesis, and you can experiment and have fun in a frustrating situation.=)

Wireless mouse will not connect or respond


Insert the new batteries, making sure that the positive(+) and negative (-) ends of each battery match the polarity indicators inside the battery housing.
When replacing the batteries, you may use
alkaline or other heavy-duty NiMH batteries. Never use an
alkaline with a NiMH battery in a device.
Avoid mixing new and used batteries in a device. Slide the battery cover back into position until it “clicks” firmly into place. Turn on the mouse be sliding the on/off switch on the bottom of the mouse to the “on” position.
The optical sensor, located on the bottom of the mouse, glows red.
6 Just somethings to check, One other thing to take a peek at, on the transmitter look to see is there is a tiny button that may say connect or reconnect. You may need a pen if you have chubby fingers like me.
Hope this helped, please leave a rating,
thank you kindly

My wireless optical mouse is no longer working


You replaced the batteries. Okay. Did you install drivers for the mouse from a CD? Are you using Windows XP? Do you notice any change if you use the mouse on a darker surface as opposed to lighter surface? If the computer installed the drivers for you, then you might want to delete them in Device Manager (might be called something like HID-Compliant Mice. Single click on that entry, press the delete key. You might have to reboot your PC after that. From there you might have to unplug, then plug in the mouse again and you should notice the driver reinstalling. Give it a second and all should be good.

*Access the Device Manager by right-clicking on My Computer, select Properties, go to the Hardware tab and select Device Manager.

My wireless keyboard stopped working the mouse works but not the keyboard what can i do


Hi,

1)Verify that the batteries are correctly installed in the keyboard and mouse. If possible, use a fresh set of alkaline batteries. 2)Reset the keyboard and mouse connections : --With the receiver plugged in, press and hold the Connect button on the receiver until the activity LED flashes. --Press and hold the recessed connect button on the underside of the keyboard until the activity light on the receiver stops flashing. When you release the button, make sure it does not stick in the depressed position. --Press the Connect button on the receiver again until the activity light flashes. --Press and hold the recessed button on the underside of the mouse until the activity light on the receiver stops flashing. Make sure the connect button does not stick in the depressed position. --Make sure that the receiver is at least 20 centimeters (8 inches) away from other electrical devices (computer, monitor, keyboard, etc.). --Remove any other objects that are between the keyboard, mouse, and the receiver, especially speakers. Hope this should resolve the Issue. Thank you.

How to set up and use targus wireless computer mouse model#amw26


Under the mouse there should be a usb stick attached to the mouse which most likely should slide out from the mouse. It also appears that the plastic cover behind the two buttons (this cover has targus written on it) Should come off. After you remove the usb stick there might be a button somewhere on the bottom of the mouse that you should be able to press to get the battery cover to pop up. Then you should be able to pull up on the battery cover and remove it from the mouse. This mouse takes two AA batteries. Once the batteries are installed then plug the usb stick into any of the usb ports on the computer. The computer should recognize the drivers for this mouse (if you are using Windows 2000, XP, Vista, or Mac OS X [or higher]). If the drivers are not immediately recognized then restart your computer and the computer should then recognize the mouse. If this still does not happen then let me know. Also there is software that can be downloaded from the Targus website for the tilt wheel as it has some added capabilities that can be set using this software. The link for that software is here ------> http://www.targus.com/us/product_details.asp?sku=AMW26US

I hope this helps, and enjoy that mouse, it looks pretty nice!

I've charged my Targus wireless mouse (PAKP003U) and plugged in the USB adapter thing, making sure the light is on. The mouse is on also, but it is still not working.


Your windows computer must install the drivers for the wireless adapter for your mouse when you plugged it in. Given that the light is on the adapter I'm assuming it works.

There should be a small button on the mouse and the adapter somewhere. Press the button with a paperclip or something small enough to get to it and the light should start flashing. Now press the button on the mouse. Both lights should be on solid.

This connects both the adapter and mouse on the same wireless channel to work together.

Good Luck!

I suppose you should reset the keyboard and mouse and maybe the access point itself. Try find small buttons on each devise and press them AT THE TIME. You may need somebody's help. Those buttos can by hidden under mouse and keyboard and should be on the top of the access point. This depend on the model, so please reffer to a manual.
