Question about Logitech Cordless Mouse

Mouse sticking My mouse seems to be sticking and is hard to move. How do you clean or when is time to replace? My mouse keeps sticking, I've changed the batteries a couple of weeks ago so I know it's not them. What else could it be?

AAHHHHHHHHH, quite often optical mice have PTFE non-slip pads under them which aid the physical movement of the mouse. Look under the mouse - are they missing? If so, spares are hard to come by, and optical mice are relatively cheap nowadays. Try using the mouse on a surface thats even and flat (a 210gsm bit of card may do it). Hope this helps

Onn Wireless Mouse has stopped working. What do I do?

Mine would work fine until I turned on my wireless headphones...then the mouse would move a little stop.....move a little....then stop.

I made sure my headphones were on.

I turned off the mouse, moved the mouse reciver to a USB port on the front of my computer (the mouse reciver and the headphone receivers were next to each other on the back of the computer). I turned the mouse back on.

The computer imediately gave me the "installing USB driver" notification.

When it was complete....both played nicely more problems.

Every time i move mouse it high-lights every thing on that paige

3 things you can do one is change out the batteries two clean the mouse it may be sticking and three get another mouse it may be defective in the circuitry. More than likely it is the battery unless it has been dropped or it is old and worn down. Thanks for using FixYa! please vote for me thanks John

When I move my mouse left it goes right on my sony touchpad It seems like the movement is backwards and sometimes it stalls out, So when I click on something it seems like it does not want to work , Or...

did you ever open you mouse and clean it? It's simply to do and u don't need any tool for that.Just "turn" thie piece on the back ot the mouse in the right way,see how pieces are adjusted, clean and put in order!!!!The ball on the back can't move easily because of the dirtiness. It's just only after cleaning several times u can if it still doesn't work that definitely u should replace it. i hope u're using a mouse mat.If it's too old change it too.

Macbook Pro mouse working temperamentally

Hello, it seems that the problem comes from your mouse: can you test your mouse on another computer and check if it does the same? If yes, you'll have to change the mouse

I have a logitech wireless mouse. Mouse keeps sticking.

Did you try repairing the mouse with the receiver? During battery change it might have lost its pairing information.

Mouse sticking

Probably needs to be cleaned. Turn it upside down and take the bottom off that is holding the ball. Use a toothpick to pick the gunk out and then wipe the ball off with a damp washcloth. Let it air dry or wipe with a clean lint-gree cloth. Should fix it up. mine does that all the time.
