SOURCE: Logitech MX610 problem.

best thing to do is to replace your mouse

SOURCE: Mouse Right click doesn't work

Replace the batteries and check to see that there is a clear path
between the wireless mouse and its transceiver.

Keep the transmitter well away from older style CRT monitors, and make sure that the USB connector is properly plugged in.

You can also try to reset the mouse by unplugging the USB
connector and plugging it back in. There is no need to reboot
the PC, because USB is hot-plug-and-play.

1) The mouse consumes very little power in standby mode.
When the mouse moves or you press a button, the mouse
wakes up, it's internal processor begins to crunch
coordinates, and the RF transmitter is briefly activated.

This surge in power quickly depletes a weak battery, and
the mouse begins to malfunction. After a short rest, the
battery partially recovers (this is due to chemistry) and
the mouse may work for a few seconds again.

For some reason, my Logitech mouse fails quicker, when
I press buttons, rather than just move the track-ball, and
the buttons are the first to malfunction.

(No I have not analyzed the circuit and the internal mouse
software to determine the exact reason it does this ::)

Anyway, replacing the "AA" battery should help.

2) The location of the little RF transciever, which connects
to the computer using a USB cable, in relation to the mouse
is also important.

a) The communication signal weakens with the square
of the distance.

b) Metallic objects will block the signal.

c) CRT monitors emit powerful, wide band interference,
polluting large segment of the radio frequency spectrum.

This interference can over-power and corrupt the faint
communications between the mouse and the transceiver.

3) If these obvious measures fail, you may have a defective

a) The fault is most likely in the mouse, not the transceiver,
but do check in the control panel => mouse settings
to see if the mouse is communicating, and the battery

(Most mouse drivers do report these things)

b) If the mouse is at fault, you can disassemble it by
removing a few small Phillips screws. Pay special
attention to any mechanical linkages, springs and levers,
to make sure you put it back together correctly.

c) Pop out the tiny circuit board, and locate the mechanical
micro-switches. See if they work when you manually
activate them.

If they feel intermittent or flaky, you may try to clean them
with a spray contact cleaner, or replace them, but given
the price of mice these days, this may not be worth it,
save for the psychological boost/and or satisfaction.

o Install fresh batteries. Try brand new-high quality batteries you absolutely know are fresh and working.
o Install the latest software. Totally remove all software and reinstall from scratch.
o Try a different port and Resynchronize your device to the receiver. Try plugging the mouse into a different USB port try powering down the computer and using the PS2 port for the mouse instead. Mice in my experience overall work better using PS2 ports on PCs that have them.
o Clean the mouse lens. This problem may occur if you are using an optical or laser mouse and the lens on the mouse is dirty.

SOURCE: Loss of control over my mouse.

Hi Arsenal,

My Logitech cordless occasionally does the same thing. On mine it was caused by a build up of gunk over the optical sensor. Once I cleaned it, it functioned normally.

I know it doesn't make sense as far as the buttons. I'm just sharing what worked for me. Hope it works for you.

Best regards

Mouse buttons left right switching sticky keys

Remember you can always use the keypad in place of the mouse. Try replacing the mouse with another one. If that doesn't work, it is probably something in the software. Do a scan on the system next.

My mouse works but is flaky! Mouse icon is

I just wanted to say Guru's probably right. I had this same problem and realized my cell phone was right between it. Moved the transmitter a little closer, moved my phone, and it works like a charm.

Wireless Optic Logitech mouse performace

I had the exact same problem with my original Logitech wireless mouse that came with a wireless keyboard. I eventually figured that the button component inside the mouse wasn't making consistent contact causing unintended double clicking or dropping while dragging. I fixed it by doing some soldering to switch the left mouse button with the right mouse button, since I didn't have to use double clicking or dragging with the right mouse button. It worked pretty well for several months until the switched left button started showing the same problem again. Now my newer Logitech mouse (it's more expensive Nano wireless mouse) is having the same problem after about 1 year using it. I think there's a serious durability problem with the button component that Logitech is putting on their mice. I may do the same trick again on this mouse, but now I don't consider Logitech as a good mouse manufacturer anymore. They used to make good quality hardwares but I guess they aren't that good anymore with all those cheap Chinese suppliers for their parts. :(

Logitech mouse doesn't respond to my clicks

Even though it does not make sense, if you are using a wireless keyboard that is part of a combo pack (mouse included) sometimes (some brands) you have to plug in all cords on the keyboard/mouse receiver.
