    I was able to sync the mouse the fist time I used it, but it will not sync again. I am ready to get a new mouse.

    This is more than irritating. I am very upset because I haven't been able to use my mouse as yet and I have it for a month now.



    Its not syncing after following the steps over and over.

Hate to say this without sounded silly.. but we had these problems, and could not sync mouse with PC. THEN.. I read directions slowly, again.. and figured out.. it is the BOTTOM of the mouse we were not doing. There is a button UNDER the mouse you push.. not the bottons on top. (BOTTOM LEFT side it says). We were clicking the top, bottom of the button. Anyway.. just make sure you turn mouse over. :)

Belkin travel mouse directions (opened today & had a few glitches as the directions may be a little off -- see othe comments if you have problems)

Step 1: Place the two AAA batteries into the mouse by sliding open the top compartment. Cup the Mouse in your palm, press on the gripped surface with both thumbs, and gently pull the lid away from the buttons to open the compartment.

Step 2: Plug the USB dongle into the USB port of your desktop or laptop computer, and the red LED light on the dongle will turn on.

Step 3: Turn the Mouse on with the on/off switch located on the bottom rght-hand side of the Mouse.

Step 4: To sync the Mouse with your computer, press and hold the button on the bottom left-hand side of the Mouse. Then, press and hold the button on the USB dongle immediately after.

Step 5: Once you press the button on the USB dongle, the red light will begin blinking. Hold both buttons simultaneously until the red light begins to blink noticeably faster, and then let go.

Step 6: After syncing the Mouse, there is no software or installation required, so you are ready to go!

I had the same problem and wasted some time following the instruction slavishly with no result. I was about to give it up as a lemon. as a last try I changed the batteries which came with it to fresh batteries and then tried again still no joy, Finally on impulse I did the reverse to the instructions and pressed the USB dongle button first and then the Mouse button and it worked. Obviously I cannot tell if this is a solution or pure chance but you might try it.

BTW I still consider this device a lemon it really should be easier to get to work I think.

There seems to be a consistency issue with these. In my case it worked after I reversed the battery direction against the diagram. That is the positive end in the - terminal and the negative end in the + terminal as the terminal ends face the outer connection. Good luck!

I was frustrated by this unitinability to function correctly as this was one of my Valentines day presents to my Girlfriend.And I really didnt want to return it to Target so I simp,ly pressed the buttons on the mouse over and over turned it on and off and followed the instructions and now the mouse works famously.Be sure to press the mouse in the corner like it says in the instructions while you are pressing the little button on the usb insertthen when you notice the lights blinking rapidly let go and enjoy your surfing and wireless mouse.

I was just reading this trying to figure out how to get mine to work. The instructions are really tricky. 1. Plug in USB 2. Turn on mouse 3. Press button on USB and it should start blinking 4. Press the button on the bottom of your mouse (You don't need to wait for any blinking lights or anything to release the button) 5. The USB light should turn to a solid red light instead of blinking 6. Wala! It should work....hopefully...or your mouse if F'ed up and you should get your money back
=)

Today I tried pressing the reset button on the bottom of the mouse, and at the same time pressed the button on the top of the remote reciever. I'd pressed both in the past, but never at the same time. This seems to have fixed this problem. I hope it's a solution for others also.

Check whether the mouse is detected in device manager and proper drivers has been installed.if not install the latest drivers, from the CD which is came along with the mouse or from vendors site will solve your problem.

I have a F5L075 wireless Belkin mouse that I need instructions on how to sync it to the ubs device.


when you turn on the mouse and if you have the USB transmitter in your USB port, the computer should automatically detect the mouse and the keyboard, (make sure both the keyboard and the mouse are switched on otherwise the computer will not see it. also be sure that your batteries are new (or check them with a volt meter). you don't actually do anything called "sync" with the mouse or keyboard.

I can't get my hp wireless mouse workn


Hi there,
The first thing to determine is whether or not you are getting a connection. Check to see if there is power on the device that is plugged into your computer. (The device which plugs in via USB). If you are not getting power to that, try a different USB port. If you are getting power to that device, follow Step 2:
The next thing to try is to look underneath the mouse. If you see a red light, it means the batteries are fine. If you don't see a red light replace the batteries. If that doesn't work, follow Step 3:
The next thing to check are the drivers on your computer. You will probably need a wired mouse to do this though. Unplug the wireless mouse, then plug in a wired one. Since I'm not sure on the model of your mouse, go to HP's website and click into the Drivers and Downloads section. Locate your mouse model number underneath the mouse or wireless transmitter, then search for the drivers. Once you have located the drivers, download them to your Desktop, but don't install them. Once they are downloaded, unplug the wired mouse from your computer, then plug in the wireless mouse and proceed to Step 4:

Before you install the drivers, go Start > Control Panel > Device Manager > Mice and Other Pointing Devices, then uninstall each mouse driver listed in here. You're doing this in case another mouse driver is conflicting with your current one. Reboot your computer. Once the computer is rebooted, go on to your Desktop and install that driver you downloaded from HP's website. Press the sync button on your wireless receiver (if there is a sync button), then try your mouse again.

I have lost the connection to the computer and belkin travel mouse


You have to make sure that there are no possible wireless interference such as the base of a cordless phone or cell phone near to the mouse while using it.

1. Try changing the batteries.
2. Try connecting the wireless adapter into different USB ports of the computer.
3. If same problem occurs, try using the mouse into another computer just to make sure that the problem is not your computer.

If the problem is isolated with the mouse, then you need to contact the manufacturer of the mouse and have them repair it for you.

Have a great day!

Belkin wireless travel mouse not connecting to Mac


If you have a usb extension cable try plugging it in so you can place it on a firm surface when you press the sync buttons. Have heard of some issues with activating both mouse and fob buttons at once because of difficulty in reaching the fobs sync button.

MY WIRELESS MOUSE IS NOT WORKING


If the mouse is only a week or so old, you can still return it or have it replaced under warranty if need be.
First, go into the device manager and uninstall the mouse, then disconnect the receiver unit ad reboot the computer. Then plus the receiver back in and the computer should reinstall the needed controls for it.
if the mouse is not moving at all, check the batteries, they can go dead sitting on shelves.
Last shot is to contact Belkin at 1 800 2BELKIN or email at this address: http://www.belkin.com/support/contact/email/?lid=en and complete the selection.
