Re: won't advance slides

IF IT JUST DOESN'T WORK... (But the laser pointer is still working when in 'presentation' mode) You need to 'Sync' the presenter and the reciever... as follows: Turn the presenter on, and turn it over so you're looking at the back of it. See the button in the middle? Press that button, and the button on the USB reciever stick, simultaneously, while holding the two of them quite close together. Problem should be solved. If you turn it on and the display isn't working, or if the laser pointer doesn't work when in 'presentation' mode, you need to change the batteries. I thought I had a dud unit until I found out about the 'Sync' function!!! Definitely on the 'need to add to documentation' list!

Microsoft Wireless 3000 Mouse works sporadically (XP)

Turn off all other "wireless" devices (cell-phones, wireless telephones, iPhone) in your home, and see if the light on the receiver is "solid" on.

Microsoft Notebook Optical Mouse 3000 is not working, reciever??

Your mouse is not sending any signal to receiver. Both items are working.
First look for a tiny thin button that protrudes from one of the sides where the receiver is placed in mouse, it might be stuck, push it gently down a couple of times, it has to be out for as long as the receiver is in the USB port.
If it still doesn't work, take the battery off, while holding down said button insert a new and fresh battery and then simultaneously release the button also considering that the battery terminals are clean. Hope you can solve your problem. Good luck!!! Chawah.

Most opticals do not track on smooth white surfaces. It needs textures or color. Try pressing the "CONNECT" button on the bottom of the mouse and on the remote sensor.

MS wireless notebook mouse 3000 not working?

A friend of mine brought me this problem with exactly the same problem. here is what I found. The small notch in usb device socket under the mouse was malfunctioning. If you press this notch you will find the mouse red light blink. If you further try pressing this notch at some point the mouse red light comes on constantly. Thats it, hold it there and try to connect first by pressing the usb device connect switch and then the mouse connect switch. The moment the connection is made the usb device stops blinking and the red light on the mouse starts blinking. Wow, it works now. Some one might just open the mouse and fix this microswtich for a permanent solution.

Microsoft Presenter 3000 does not work

My 3000 has a green light but it only flashes to indicate the sync period during which time you should press the button on the back of the presenter. The presenter works well and to date I have had no problems.
