    Thanks Tampa. Hibernate doesn't happen for quite some time so the laser mouse is coming soon.

The red battery light has been flashing off and on on my Performance MX Mouse.

I finally figured what was going on with my Performance MX Mouse from Logitech (after I ordered a new mouse). In the first place the battery has to go in withing the negative "-" connection in first. It will allow you to do it the opposite way but you will still get the flashing red light. That means the "+" connection is towards the back edge of the mouse. Make sure the battery is pushed down as far as it will go in the battery compartment. Do this with a NiMH battery ONLY! Duracell makes a pre-charged NiMH battery (it is green and copper coloured with a black strip around it) that works great. Then connect it to your charging cable and let it charge for 12 to 24 hours. You will find that everything is fine after that. You don't need to take the mouse apart and change the resistors like some advice tells you to do.

Most wireless mice will hibernate after a short period of inactivity. If something bumps the desk or moves the mouse it will start scanning again. If you don't like the light, you could try a laser mouse (no red LED flashing).

Open all doors, remove toner, reinsert toner and shut door. Shut off the printer. Wait.....Turn printer back on.

Red light flashing top of logitech wireless mouse??? has fresh batteries---still flashing. otherwise, still works fine as usual on toshiba laptop, vista. what's going on??? thanks for any help!!!


The flashing light could be a reflection from the LED and mirror or laser on the bottom of the mouse. I had this similar problem and it drove me nuts until I happened to hold it up to a mirror and noticed the flashing was in sync bot top and bottom of the mouse.

Flashing light


It depends on the mouse. Sometimes the red light flashes to signify the processing of a command. If it is continually flashing, then you may want to replace the battery.

Flahsing Red Light


Now what you have to do is look for a reset button on your mouse and your wireless mouse signal receiver.
When the receiver and mouse both are on press the reset button on both of them one by one.
This should solve the problem.
