    Just covering the bases here,

    Batteries in correctly?

    Have you tried training the mouse using the button on the base unit, and the very small button on the underside of the mouse? You might need a pen tip or something very small to press that button.:)

    How far from the base is the mouse? Standard MS mice usually need to be near the base to function.

    Thanks!

Just bought my wireless mouse. Is the laser light that is shineing very brightly suppose to stay on all the time? Everytime I pick it up it is so bright and won't go off.


Yes, that light stays on all the time. That's how the mouse works; it bounces the light off the surface the mouse is sitting on back up into a sensor. In many models the light actually gets brighter when you pick the mouse up. The sensor sees less light reflected and increases the amount of light. Just use the mouse and don't worry about what you see if you pick it up.

Wireless mouse not picking up


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

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.
