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.

Onn wrieless mouse is not working


Try replacing the batteries in the mouse. Sometimes the light will still come out of the bottom of the mouse - but the wireless signal is no good.

Also - after you replace the batteries in the mouse, click the sync button on the USB part that plugs into your computer, and then immediatly click the sync button on the bottom of the mouse.

That should do it!

Mouse model 1007 does not work. lights are both lit one on mouse one on receiver but cursor doesnt move. hit the connect button and still nothing. Your help would be greatly appreciated.


Remove the battery and put it back again

Try plugging the receiver in a new USB port and install the drivers again. If it is already installed, make sure the Mouse is being detected by viewing it in Device manager.

After following the above steps, you can press the connect button to sync up with the receiver.

The issue can most probably be related to corrupted/hang drivers so you can try restarting the computer and changing USB slot for receiver.

How do i connect my hp wireless mouse to the computer


The first step is to install its driver, after taht you can connect the wireless dongle into a free USB port of your computer, then put the batteries inside the mouse and turn it on, in the most of cases, the wireless dongle and mouse sinchronize automatically, if they don't, there's a small botton in both devices press it in each one to synchronize them manually.

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 replaced the rechargable batteries in my logictech wireless mouse and put on the charger for 8+ hours - my mouse still does not work. what else can be wrong? It is frozen in the middle of my screen.


You may want to try with normal batteries instead of the rechargeable ones.

You have not provided the model no of your mouse. Is it connected to PC or laptop?

Are you able to go to the logitec mouse setup in control panel and check if the diagnostic works.

Some wireless mouse devides have a reset button which you sync with the base unit that goes to the USB port. If this one has it, then try to resync.

Waiting for your responses so that we can diagnose the problem further.

I need to know how to sync the mouse to the usb..????


1. Insert the batteries into the mouse.

2. Plug the USB stick into the port in your computer.

3. Turn the mouse on (switch is on the bottom).

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 stick immediately after.

Note: The button on the mouse is very hard to find. Look at the sticker that is on the bottom, and to the left of it is a very tiny button.

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

Note: This is hard to do so be patient with yourself if you can't do it on the first try.

We have a wireless keyboard and mouse and it seems that something between them and the computer is slow or off. we type and only a few letters appear..the mouse seems to be ok just kinda slow ofrom when...


Most likely you need to re-sync the device

  1. Resynchronizing the keyboard and/or mouse causes the devices to reconnect to the receiver using new identification numbers. Use the following steps to resync the devices:
    NOTE: The following connection sequence must be completed within 60 seconds. If the sequence is not done in 60 seconds, start over.
    1. With the receiver plugged in, press and hold the Connect button on the receiver until the activity LED flashes.
      NOTE: Some HP computers have receivers built into the front of the computer; such as TouchSmart 700 Series PCs and Digital Entertainment Centers. Look for a small connect button built into the case. If you have a TouchSmart 500 or 800 Series PC, the receiver plugs into a USB port on the underside of the case and does not have a connect button - skip this step. Figure 4: An example of a receiver c01065862.jpg 1 - Connect button and LED activity light Figure 5: Another example of a receiver c00526313.jpg 1 - Connect button 2 - Num Lock LED 3 - Alpha Lock LED 4 - Scroll Lock LED 5 - Activity LED
    2. 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.
      NOTE: If problems persist after resetting AND there is another wireless keyboard or mouse near, use these steps again, holding down the keyboard or mouse button for ten seconds. Doing so may give the keyboard or mouse a new ID number in case the other keyboard or mouse was using the same number.
    3. Press the Connect button on the receiver again until the activity light flashes.
    4. 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.
  2. If your mouse and keyboard have a USB receiver, unplug the USB receiver, wait 10 seconds, and then insert into another USB port - preferably into a USB port that is closer to the mouse and keyboard. For example, if the USB receiver was plugged into a USB port on the back of the computer, unplug it and plug it into a front USB port.

Hope this helps!! Good luck!!

My iphone won't sync with itunes. it did at first but now keeps coming up with an error I have an original iphone, never been jailbroken or any such thing, and can not currently get it to sync with itunes...


Recharge
Make sure iPhone is charged. Connect to a USB port and look for the lightning bolt battery icon in the upper right. If you don't see this icon, then iPhone is not charging. The battery will charge to 80% in an hour.
Note: If you put your computer into sleep mode while iPhone is connected via USB, iPhone may not charge.


This screen means to keep iPhone connected so it continues charging. Please note:
If iPhone is not sufficiently charged it will not show up in iTunes
Use a high-power USB port such as the one on your computer, or use your iPhone AC adapter.
Don't use the USB port on your keyboard because it is a low-power port and iPhone will not charge.
Make sure you are using USB to charge. Accessories that use FireWire to charge are not supported with iPhone.
If you see the red part of the battery image flash three times and then the screen goes black, it means that iPhone is not receiving power to charge.

If the above steps dont resolve follow the following steps :
Retry with a different USB port.
Note:
Don't use the USB port on your keyboard because it is a low-power port and iPhone will not charge.

If the above steps dont resolve follow the following steps :
Restart

Try restarting iPhone. To turn it off, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears. Slide your finger across the slider to turn off iPhone. To turn iPhone on, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.

Does iPhone appear frozen or stuck? Try pressing and holding the Home button for at least 6 seconds to close a frozen application. Then try restarting iPhone again.

Note: If that doesn't work, try restarting your computer.
If the above steps dont resolve follow the following steps :
Reinstall

Reinstall iTunes 7.7 or later.
Get the latest version of iTunes (7.3 or later) from http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

Thanks.
