There is actually no release button on my 5000. Between the white on-off button and the bluetooth synch button there is a finger notch. If you put your index finger in the notch (pointing toward the base of the mouse you can put your nail under the lip and the batter compartment opens right up. There is a horizontal slot in the battery cover - trying to pry that open does not work. The whole thing is well-cloaked but surprisingly easy when you figure it out!

Remove the battery cover from the back of the mouse by sliding off the cover while pressing the release button at the bottom of the mouse.

If I remeber correctly yhe button is at the back of the mouse and covered by a symbol, it is a hidden button that will pop the battery casing open like a fuel door on a car.

just follow the centerline past the word microsoft to find it.

Bluetooth Notebook 5000 Mouse will not connect. The green light comes on and then goes off. The bluetooth light on the laptop is on. Just changed the batteries. What to do?


You may just need to re-PAIR it. You need to press and hold the Pairing button until you get a solid blue light then it is in pairing mode, you can then discover it on your laptop and complete the pairing.

How can i remove the battery of my microsoft mouse 5000


I found this page about that particular mouse: if you look at the images part way down the page (may have to scroll down a bit) the middle image is of the bottom. There is a little trap door for the batteries. There is a little catch you just push on the release and the door opens. Very easy.

I put in new batteries but no luck. No lights go ...


Answer:
With the buttons toward the top:
The top LEFT slider button is for power. Slide toward the outside for ON. Light on top of mouse turns green after about 1 second, and stays green for about 10 seconds (assuming the batteries are okay). When the batteries are failing, it blinks red.
The top Right PUSH button sends a connection signal to the PC. When pressed, the indicator light on the top flashes green and red, indicating the special connection signal.
This is the mouse side of the equation (good batteries, slider turned on, connection button pressed and released.).
NOW: the PC must have a working receiver, with drivers installed, and Bluetooth software installed. it sould detect the mouse. If it asks for a passkey, say none (mouse doesn't need passkey).
You should not need Microsoft Intellipoint. it doesn't have a configuration for this particular mouse model anyway.

Good Luck!

Red and green light flashing of microsoft mouse 5000


Hello,

The first thing that I would advise you to do is,

Uninstall the Bluetooth Adapter driver totally from the System first,

Then go to "scan for hardware changes",

This will bring up a prompt to install the new hardware found (Which is your Bluetooth Adapter).

After this, Press your ON/Off button on the mouse and ensure that it is On, then try to use it again.

It should connect like that.

(In case you dont know how to uninstall the Adapter, Right-Click on my computer Icon, Properties, Device Manager, then select the Adapter under bluetooth/network adapters, and right click on it, then select uninstall.)

Hope this helps.

Goodluck

I have a Wireless Mouse 5000.


Is this a Microsoft Wireless 5000 Mouse? The battery plate should be on the bottom of the mouse to take off to put in the batteries, similiar to a TV remote contoller. And it can be latched pretty tight.

Included a Youtube video of someone taking the battery out of his mouse.
