Question about HP Computers & Internet

My mouse only works if I push the cord hard against the mouse?

For my mouse to work, I have to push the cord (strongly and occasionally at the right angle) into itself to work. Otherwise, it won't connect to the computer at all. I suspect the cord was pulled too hard and has come loose. Is there anything I can do or must I buy a new one?

SOURCE: Wacom Mouse XC-100-03 Right click doesn't work

Greetings,
You can buy any other style or brand of mouse and it will work right along side of the Wacom. I chose to keep my Logitech wireless mouse after installing my Wacom tablet because it provided a better feature set (i.e. more buttons ). I have had no issues. Please rate me well if this helped.
Take Care,
-WN

SOURCE: wireless mouse problem

This mouse needs to be synched up with its base.
Press the button on the base, then press the button on the bottom of the mouse. After this, when the light flashes on the base, it is synched and should work again.

try using an eraser on the contacts if you can reach them. Sounds like dirt/corrosion build-up.

My water heater hasn't seemed to work right since our new house was built 7 years ago. It doesn't seem to heat right most of the time. Once in a while, just occasionally it will work right and put out hot...


make sure the thermostat is pushed tight up against the tank, any gap between the tank and back of thermostat will cause erratic operation

Freezes up often. USB comes on says its malfunctioning. Anything I can do this mouse isnt that old


I see this caused a lot of the time by a bad wire within the cord. If you are good with soldering and circuit boards you can replace the cord. But getting a new cord is the fun part, you can usually take it out of another device. Sometimes for a temp fix, you can find where the cord is broken and twist n turn it just right to make it work again, then finding a way to make the cord stay that way. With most breaks in the cord happening right where it meet the mouse, you can sometimes push the cord further into the mouse and get a few more months out of the mouse.

I personally just replace the device when I know it is a cord problem, saves a lot of time, trouble and frustration. I always buy the same model of mouse and it runs around $60+, I use my old devices to repair the newer ones when something goes awry...if permitting.

So my advice is to just buy a new mouse, you can get them for under $10 depending on what you choose to buy.

It wont power up


could be any number of issues, first try replacing the power cord, if that doesn't work, replace the power mechanism (easy to find on the inside as the power cord plus right into it), next, if that still doesnt work, replace the hard drive (there are ways to recover your data, but not for people without the right equipment, so i strongly advise against trying, go to a professional), and if that doesnt work, then the motherboard.

Retractable Cord won't lock


When fully extended (you have to hold the cord in place since it won't lock), slide the rectractable device down the cord until it is butted up against the USB connector. You can use the mouse with no problems like this. When you are done, slide the retractor back to the middle of the cord and the ends will wind back in. It's not a perfect solution but at least makes the mouse usable.

Battery


The portion of the mouse right behind the two buttons slides back exposing the batteries. The snap action is quite strong so you have to push straight bak quite hard. A small screwdriver will help pushing back if youa re carefull

Logitech mouse doesn't respond to my clicks


Even though it does not make sense, if you are using a wireless keyboard that is part of a combo pack (mouse included) sometimes (some brands) you have to plug in all cords on the keyboard/mouse receiver.
