What you are experiencing is normal wear and tear of the mouse button that is used the most. This is a common issue with mice made for computer manufacturers. Most likely issue is that after 2 years of clicking, the depress switch was actually pushed into the plastic molding below. A new mouse would really be the most effective use of time and resources. I would recommend a high quality mouse from logitech (a g5 or g7) would significantly increase hand comfort, response and posture. Their warranty period is also top notch. Hope this helps.

ASUS 1000 left mouse button not working


Yes! get a can of compressed air and attach supplied straw, now with your fingernail lift up the left mouse button and give a few good blasts in the crevice, this will clear out any buildup of dirt and grime that has collected, repeat as required. If this fails it will involve laptop service.

Similar problem which I resolved today.
I have a hp wireless mouse model no. 5189URF. I bought this in hp online in April 2009. It needs 2 x AA Alkaline batteries.
Steps I did to resolve.
1. Removed battery cover.
2. Removed batteries below which 2 screws exist.
3. Remove 2 screws and remove the top casing of mouse.
4. You can see 2 very small square push button corresponding to left and right clicks in mouse.
5. try to press the left button and make sure its free. The issue seem to be that this button becomes rusty internally and lost contact. Therefore clicks are not recognized. You may need to press it repeatedly and also with a slight thrust circumferentially.
6. You can test your mouse in WIndows Help & support option linked with HP hardware diagnostics tool.

Dropped wireless mouse and wheel shifted & buttons hard to push


I had a similar problem and was able to fix it. The left mousebutton was clickable, but needed extra force.

After opening the mouse I found that at the side of the mousewheel there was notch pointing upwards, preventing free movement of the left mousebutton. I was able to rotate the ring with the notch back into horizontal position after gently pushing the housing surrounding the mouse wheel wider.

The right button of the mouse is very hard to press.Any ideas how to fix this problem


Hi there, You feel hard because its broken from the inside. i guess if you press the right button from the end side( back side end of pressing location ) then some time it will work. Ok just turn back and open the small screw by screw driver. Then remove the casing. you should find 2 button look like small tap with black head or you can say its a radio button. press both button, if its working perfect and sound like a " tik tak" then you confirm that the button is ok. After that check the mouse casing press button. There you found a small plastic "dot" which is attached back side, with left & right side pressing button. If right side is missing then the "dot" button is broken, that's why you can't press the key. And some time its dislocate So if you do not find that "dot" plastic then i suggest you buy a new mouse or if its dislocate then try to fix it.
Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Left wireless mouse button doesn't work hard to push


This is a mechanical problem for sure. If you have to press hard to get a click, pop the mouse open and carefully look at where the mouse button is supposed to touch the micro switch. It might have been damaged by a heavy finger, etc. Any hobby-minded person can cook up a solution to restore this plastic finger so it will aim and hit the micro switch correctly

Unable to sync Belkin wireless travel mouse


Hate to say this without sounded silly.. but we had these problems, and could not sync mouse with PC. THEN.. I read directions slowly, again.. and figured out.. it is the BOTTOM of the mouse we were not doing. There is a button UNDER the mouse you push.. not the bottons on top. (BOTTOM LEFT side it says). We were clicking the top, bottom of the button. Anyway.. just make sure you turn mouse over. :)

Connecting wireless keyboard for L3600


There is a button on the bluetooth dongle that needs pressing to get the mouse & keyboard operating, I think I got them to work when the little long blue light on the dongle (there is one) it flashes for a brief time when pressed. I think if the mouse or keyboard button is pressed while its flashing it picks them up. Good luck, it was very tedious, I agree.
