Question about Logitech MX 700 Mouse

1 Answer

Still flashing Sorry, I didn't mean that your suggestion was not useful, but I don't use rechargable batteries, so really it didn't help me out much for I wasn't even able to try that. I am now only able to use the mouse for a few seconds at a time, i then put it on the charger it will flash green about 5 times then flash a faster red I then have to press the connect buttons on the mouse and receiver each time i use it and then can only use it for a few second again. I'm going crazy. Thanks again

Re: still flashing

I have this same mouse and as I recall, it is recommended that you use rechargeable batteries (like the ones included in the package) with this mouse. If you use regular batteries in the mouse and then put it on the charger, it will most likely ruin those batteries and possibly the mouse over time.

Gigaware wireless mouse instructions

The first thing to realize is that most wireless keyboards and mice will eat regular alkaline batteries for lunch. This is where most of my clients have gone wrong. It seems they are replacing batteries in a device around every month or even more often. For an office full of wireless devices, this can add up very quickly. Plus it also seems that certain devices act inconsistently with regular alkaline batteries. If you need to purchase a non-rechargeable battery for your wireless devices, you should purchase the "advanced" or "performance" type of batteries such as the Energizer Lithium or Duracell Quantum brands. For what it's worth, the Apple devices usually come with Energizer Lithium brand batteries. However, high performance batteries are more expensive than alkaline batteries and their cost will add up over time. So I don't recommend buying these batteries except in a pinch.
What I really recommend are a particular type of rechargeable battery called low-discharge Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH). I believe many people stay away from rechargeable batteries because of misconceptions based upon past generations of rechargeable batteries. Many people perceive rechargeable batteries as expensive and prone to failure. But the worst stigma associated with rechargeable batteries are that they don't hold their charge and never seem to be ready when they are needed. The reality is that today's new generation of low-discharge NiHM rechargeable batteries have resolved many of the issues that previous batteries suffered from. Low-discharge NiMH batteries hold their power on the order of months or years after charging. Unlike previous iterations of rechargeable batteries that lost their charge quickly, you can charge these batteries any time and they will be ready for use when you need them.

I assume you are using usb socket to charge mouse. The voltage on a USB is 5volts , you may have a problem here. It may not be producing the correct voltage. Or you may have a problem with your cradle. I would suggest you see a repair person and get them to look at the USB voltage and the Mouse cradle..
Hope this helps.

My Logitech mouse is wireless # CE0682 and the red light on the mouse is always flashing, even when on the receiver. I also have some problems when I want to use the mouse to hilight a block of text, as I...

Gina, I've had my Logitech ce 0682 for years and have had some similar problems. The mouse is supposed to rest in the cradle and recharge the batteries, but I've noticed that it rarely works for me. The connectors on the mouse seem to scuff and corrode easily and I'm sure that degrades its ability to charge batteries. So my solution was to buy a 4 pack of rayovac rechargable batteries(AA) and a usb battery charger. I never put my mouse in the cradle now and keep 2 batteries recharging at all times so I always have fresh batteries when that pesky red light comes up telling me the batteries are dying. As far as your highlighting text problem. Sorry don't have a solution on that one.

The laser light does not work untill I open the unit and reinstall the batteries. This only works for a short time . HP REV.1.0 S/N. BM8291960

Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

You will need to replace the batteries for it to work properly. The original batteries are rechargeable but they only work for a short time before going completely out. I found that purchasing the really good rechargeable batteries that are used for digital cameras worked well. I purchased two sets to have on hand while the others recharged.

Hope this helps!

My computer recognizes the mouse, and connects to it, but the mouse doesn't work. It is flashing green then red on the battery indicator.

I had the same problem and it turned out that it had nothing to do with the batteries.

Go to the bluetooth indicator on your computer and disable the device. Then restart your computer.

When the computer is restarted set the mouse into "discoverable mode" which is the flashing red/green thing and it should find your computer.

This worked for me!

Mouse switch off

On most mice, you cannot shut the power off to them without removing the batteries and they will run down rather quickly. There is really nothing you can do unless you buy a mouse with a shutoff switch like my Logitech or use rechargeable batteries or just shut the computer down. Sorry.

Good Morning:

Hope that you are wellJ

Not the battery because the Battery Status LED Indicator glows red when the battery is running low. The green light indicates that it is charging.

If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.

And, remember; always include the type of Operating System and the type of computer you own, when you submit your questions. It simply makes for much faster solutions.

Have a wonderful week.
