Re: Mouse Problem

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.

Microsoft 4000 mouse button

try picking up on the button and taping the mouse with a screwdriver handle, this might realign the switch, or take the mouse apart, you might have broke something that could be glued back in-place with epoxy or super glue .. should be a easy fix. good luck and vote if'n I was of help.. jay the pool pump motor repair guy longwood florida

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.

The left mouse button on my Studio 1535 no longer works. The right one is fine. Can I fix it or do I need to replace the whole assembly?


Try to configure it as a mouse for left handed persons and see if it responds to your clicks.

In any case you should go to Control Panel, Mouse Properties. By pressing a button, the picture on the screen should show you if it is activated. If it does not then there nay be some hardware problem.

If you do not need the Context menus (right click) try setting the right button as the one to perform the usual click.

But nothing beats a new fancy mouse.

Hope this gives you so solutions.

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. :)

It's not working right....

The BenQ M310 mouse needs to "sync" with the USB receiver. Need to push the two buttons at the same time, or maybe the one in the mouse first then push the button in the USB receive so the two can "sync" to each other. This may solve this problem. Good luck!
