My Logitech LX3 optical mouse has stopped working completely. If there is a battery in it where the heck is it? I don't see anywhere on the mouse where a battery could fit in it. Please help!
The LX3 is a wired USB mouse so it doesn't have a battery. So the next issue: is the mouse plugged in directly to the computer or into a USB hub? Try changing the port that you have the mouse connected. Check that the USB ports are active (not disabled for power savings or security) For Windows, the first is under the Advanced settings for the Screen Saver. The second is in the device manager. Try the mouse on another computer if possible. Try a different mouse on the computer. Check if other USB ports work with known working devices. For a Windows machine, you might try uninstalling the USB device and then reinstalling the drivers after a reboot. For laptops, try resetting the unit. On my HP laptop, I lost all USB devices at once for a part of the day. In that case, unplugging the AC charger and removing the battery was required to recover the USB ports.
If you have an older OS, make sure the drivers are installed. (This mouse is not compatible with Windows 95.) If you use a USB to PS/2 adapter, try a USB port and reboot the computer.
Wired mice frequently get damaged cables so I'd recommend replacing it. There was a 5 year warranty on the mouse when purchased new.
I hope this helps.
