MS wireless notebook optical mouse 4000

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X, Version 10.4.11
Trackpad works
However:

  1. MS wireless notebook optical mouse 4000 - Will not move cursor
  2. Mouse receiver - does not light up "green" when plugged directly into USB Port

I have tried:
  1. Replacing battery in mouse
  2. "Connect" on receiver and mouse
  3. Downloading and installing driver software
  4. Using receiver and mouse on a different computer
  5. Working "on/off" button under mouse. It seems o.k.
  6. Working "connect" button under mouse. It seems o.k.

Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Mouse Receiver from the USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When the program asks you to connect the Mouse Receiver to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

I have microsoft bluetooth optical mouse 4000 it suddenly stopped connecting to the receiver, as I cannot move mouse anymore


Just to clarify, this is a wireless optical mouse, right? Please try the steps below:

1. Use fresh batteries.
2. Make sure that the mouse is turned on.
3. Check if there's a connect button on the wireless receiver and underneath the mouse. If there is, try holding down the two connect buttons at the same time for five seconds and then release them both.
4. Try moving the mouse.
5. Make sure that there are no possible wireless interference between the wireless receiver and mouse like the base of a cordless phone, cell phone etc.

If same problem occur after doing the steps below, then you may want to contact the manufacturer for RMA. This Microsoft 4000 has a three year limited warranty.

Thank you!

Receiver light is steady green. mouse won't light up. cursor won't move.


Why don't you try at the moment of placing a new battery to see if the small button that protrudes, where the receiver is located at the bottom of the mouse is pressed down. Without the receiver in place that **** on must be out for as long as the receiver is in the USB port.
Good luck!!!

MS Wireless notebook mouse 4000


I have already broken two of them. It seems that the receiver is very sensitive to hits. Probably a PCB issue. I disassembled the receiver and discovered that if I bend it a little it starts working but if I leave it stops.
