Wireless optical 3000 mouse not working

Somehow my son managed to drop the desktop mouse in the dog's water dish. We dried it out and put new batteries in it. I tried hitting the connect button on it and the USB's, but the battery light won't even come on. I decided to try another wireless mouse. I put fresh batteries in it also, reset it, and now it won't even come on with my laptop. (No water dish)

Take the NEW mouse and re-install through the control panel option (for win +) or the correct procedure for the OS that you are using. the old one is likely dead. good luck!

There could be several other factors influencing the behaviour of your optical mouse. Have you tried cleaning the lens underneath and also used a contrasting mouse mat on your table?
The range of this mouse is very limited (3ft) and you might have some interference from other devices around (like cordless phone, wireless devices and so on)

Check the following 2 sites for more troubleshooting ideas. Also the microsoft site referenced below provides some software you can download to diagnose better.

I just dropped my mouse by accident and it doesn't work now. How do I fix this?


open up the door to make sure the batteries are okay, reseat the batteries into the slots to make sure the batteries are making proper contact.

If that doesn't work, then try new batteries just to be sure the batteries aren't the issue.

If it still doesn't work then leave the new batteries in and the usb adapter that comes with that mouse, hook it back up to the usb slot on the laptop and see if windows recognizes the mouse. If no messages come up then go into the device manager and see if the mouse shows up in there.

It will show up as either the type of mouse you have or a yellow question mark which would mean you need to reinstall the software for the mouse.

if nothing shows up in the device manager for the mouse then that means the mouse is bad and would need to be replaced.

Wireless Mobile Mouse 3000 not working


I suggest you do the following. After having synchronized both connecting buttons in mouse and receiver, take off battery and next look for a tiny thin button that protrudes from one of the sides where the receiver is placed in mouse, hold it depressed and put back a new and fresh battery releasing simultaneously this button. Mouse would work correctly. Good luck!!! Chawah.
