Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done when ever you change batteries or glitch. Hope this helps you. Bud

How to install 2.4Ghz wireless mouse with USB receiver?


Insert the batteries into the mouse. Turn the mouse over, find the battery cover, and slide it off. Insert the appropriate batteries-usually two AAs.
  • The wireless receiver that plugs into the computer uses USB power, so it needs no batteries.
Connect the receiver to the computer. If your computer has a USB port (as most do), plug your receiver into an available port. There will also be a green adapter supplied, in the event that your system requires the use of the mouse port. Caution-don't try and force the mouse adapter into the keyboard port!
  • The mouse receiver has a USB plug (left), but can also plug into the mouse plug through the adapter it came with (right). If your receiver plugs into the USB port it should look like the left. If it plugs into the mouse plug it should look like the one on the right, only connected to the receiver.
Connect the mouse to the receiver. Place the mouse in close proximity to the receiver, and note the following:
  • The receiver should have a visible button that is easily pushable by the average human finger.
  • The mouse will usually have a very small reset button in a hole on the bottom that can be pushed by something like a pencil or paper clip.
  • Push both buttons at the same time with the receiver and the mouse relatively close to each other for about 5 seconds or more.
Find a permanent position the receiver. Place the receiver where it won't be far away from the mouse. Depending on where you are, you can place it on the monitor, on the tower, on the back of your laptop (if you are installing the mouse to your laptop) or on the desk.
  • The furthest a wireless mouse can get away from the receiver and still function is about 9 feet (2.7 meters), so keep that in mind.
Test your new mouse.
  • If you plugged into the mouse port, restart your computer.
  • If you plugged it into the USB port you should be able to use it immediately.
  • When the cursor moves when you move the mouse, you have connected the mouse properly. If the cursor doesn't move, try repositioning the receiver. If it still doesn't work, you may need to restart your computer (if you haven't already) or reconnect everything.
Adjust your mouse settings. Use the control panel that came with your wireless mouse, or download the necessary software from the manufacturer's website. Adjust the settings so that the mouse performs as you require.

Mouse did not connect to receiver


Hello there, I am the Expert that will be helping you today. My name is damnor01.

Welcome to Fixya.

The mouse uses two AA 1.5Volt batteries, ensure that they are installed in the correct orientation. Positive and negative polarity, on each. New strong batteries are required for this application.
A red light shoud elumanate from the bottom of the mouse when batteries are installed.

Now connect the USB cable from the receiver to the USB port on your computer, you may need to try different ones.
Once this stage has been completed you can install the drivers for your Microsoft mouse, they can be found on the CD disk that came with your Mouse.
The drivers may need to be installed using a wired mouse.

Beneath the mouse there is a button, press it.
On the receiver there is a button press it.

The receiver will now find the mouse and connect.

Thanking you kindly

Cannot get mouse to work


1.
If the underside of the mouse has an on/off switch, make sure to set the switch to the "On" position.
2.
Restart the computer. This can resolve the problem, at least temporarily, so that other troubleshooting steps can be applied.
3.
Move the mouse or keyboard closer to the receiver
The receiver is the hardware that receives the wireless signals from the keyboard and mouse and communicates the data to the computer. Most receivers connect to a USB port, either directly or by a cable, but a few types of receivers connect to the PS/2 ports.
. Make sure that the keyboard and the mouse are within 100 centimeters (39 inches) of the receiver. If the receiver is attached to a cord, position it so that it is on the same level surface, close to the mouse and keyboard.

4. Replace the batteries with a fresh set of alkaline batteries and make sure they are correctly installed. If the mouse or keyboard is not working, then replace the batteries, even if the mouse/keyboard software indicate the batteries still have a charge.
Remove the battery cover to access the batteries. For keyboards, the battery access cover is found on the underside of the keyboard. When replacing the batteries look for the positive symbol (a plus sign +) imprinted near the battery compartment or battery cover. Make sure the positive end of the battery is oriented to the positive side of the compartment.

5.
If you have a USB receiver, unplug the USB receiver, wait 10 seconds, and then insert it 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.
6.
Resync the wireless keyboard and mouse connections.

Resync the keyboard and mouse connections for receivers with a connect button .
Resynchronizing the keyboard and/or mouse causes the devices to reconnect to the receiver using new identification numbers.
NOTE: The following connection sequence must be completed within 60 seconds. If the sequence is not done in 60 seconds, start over.

I have installed the software and still can't use the wireless keyboard and mouse (GE wk1204)


Most mice should work without any software, there is a button on the underside of the mouse that needs to be pressed in the right order with pressing the receiver button connected to the computers USB port. Typically Press the base connect button first, then the mouse connect button, then the keyboard button. If it doesnt work reverse the mouse keyboard order. Make sure your using new batteries This is most often the case -dead batteries. (installed in the correct fashion) cheers.

Logitech V220 cordless mouse won't work


The V220 is a quite nice rodent, my favorite. Check 3 things.

1) Is the battery facing the right way? Minus end goes in first. Green LED should turn on for a few seconds after the battery is installed.

2) Is the mouse ON? The switch under the mouse is supposed to turn on automatically when the receiver is removed. This does not always work.

3) Unplug the USB Receiver. Connect it to a different USB port. Run the Logitech Connect utility.

If the mouse still does not work, uninstall the Setpoint software and reboot. It is possible that the driver did not install correctly. After reboot, try Step 3 again.

Setpoint software is only needed if you want to use the wheel click or horizonal scroll features.

If all else fails, try installing your V220 on a different computer.
