Re: logitech mx 700 cordless optical mouse

I had the same problem.  Just change channels by pushing the connect button on the mouse or charger.  Works like a charm.  Sometimes its a battery charging problem.  Try changing rechargeable batteries too.  I've done it both ways.

Auto Scroll Stops working


Would you be willing to try this solution although it alone may not immediately solve your problem?

Once you attempt this and let me know what results you have, I can then move to the next most likely place to examine.

You see, the problem is that the "properties" values for a scroll wheel are set in several different areas of Windows. Therefore, it would potentially be necessary to do down the list of them one at a time until the problem is discovered. OK?

First then, go into Control Panel, in this area is Internet Options (this applies to Internet Explorer an not Firefox, Safari or Chrome), go to Advanced Properties for Internet Explorer and you should find a check box for smooth scrolling. Un check that box and then reboot Windows.

Let me know if the problem repeats itself in the same amount of time or not. Once I have that info I can take you to the next option to troubleshoot. Be aware that this may take quite a while. I've been through this with my Logitech Mouse and I came down to having to remove and reinsert the USB cable time and time again.

So let me know your results.

Hotkey problems

I had the same problem but finally found a solution hidden in the depths of Logitech. It's quoted below. I had to do it a couple of times before it worked, and it seems that you need to reconnect the mouse at the same time. I didn't the first time and then the keyboard refused to work. (Finger trouble?) :-(


The following is from :-

This article applies to the following products:
Cordless Access Duo
Cordless Acess Duo Optical
Cordless access keyboard
Cordless Elite Duo
Cordless MX Duo
Cordless Navigator Duo

You may be able to reset the keyboard and resolve the problem by clearing the keyboard capacitors. To do this, remove the batteries from the keyboard and type continuously on as many keys as possible for one to two minutes. This action should simulate touch-typing; you should not press and hold only some keys down.
After you clear the capacitors, replace the batteries and synchronize the keyboard using the following procedure:
  1. Make sure the batteries are in correctly. A diagram on the device itself or in the Getting Started Guide should tell you the correct polarity for the batteries.
  2. Press the connect button on the receiver.
  3. Press the connect button on the bottom or right hand edge of the keyboard.
    NOTE: If you are using a Cordless Desktop System, you must do this procedure for both the mouse and the keyboard.
The "Connect" button on the mouse is quite small and usually requires a pencil tip or other small object to push it. Remember, ALL Logitech cordless devices will have a synchronization button. If you have the "Cordless Mouse" with Model Number (M/N) M-RN67, the button will be located in a small hole on the lower portion of the back of the mouse. You will need a paper clip to access the button.

Erratic Logitech cordless optical mouse

ive had the mx700 for two years and im very comfortable with it.
I think you problem lies not with the mouse or the driver, but rather the mousepad.
Since the mx700 is not a lasermouse, but "only" optical, it still needs a decent pad to work flawlessly.
Ive had problems with these kind of mice using blank paper, magazines or tablesurfaces.
Try to get a real mousepad from somewhere (should be really cheap), that should do the trick =)

I upgradet to a razer diamondback later which is a laser mouse (1600dpi, while optical mice (with the red light) have 800dpi). Some ppl say that this is too much, and not needed (you can get even higher specs =) but i felt a world of difference, it just works everywhere! (except for mirrors and glas =)
