Question about Targus Mini Kaleidoscope Optical Retractable - Mouse - - AMU83US

1 Answer

No results from right clicking

I just purchased the kaleidoscope optical mouse from my university bookstore. It seems to be working fine except that nothing happens when I right click. I use this feature a lot to "copy", "paste", and "save as". Is there anything I can do? The left click works fine.

If you can hear by ear after you click right button same sound as when you push left button, then it will be software problem.....
if you can't hear same sound, then microswitch is broken, or not in proper possition.....
if it's software problem, try to plug it into another usb port, or somebody elses computer, then you will see if problem persists also there....
if it doesn't work on another computer, then it will be mouses problem.... take it back to bookstore and ask them for refund or exchange

I had this happen to me after reprogramming my tv remote too close to my laptop and mouse. Try resetting the reciever and then the mouse by pushing the reset buttons on each one while they are plugged in ( reciever first, then the mouse ).

SOURCE: i have a targus laser

Try this: on the base of the mouse, there's a red syncing button. Press both that and the black reset button on the base of the USB-connected charger. The laser light should become steady after a moment, indicating that the mouse is in sync with the laptop. (during this period the light should be blinking until it is synced) You may have to press the reset button multiple times. Hope this helps.

First thing you need to do is to know that the USB ports of your laptop is really working. Insert another usb devices or storage such a flash disk. If the flash disk being inserted is not recognized by the system then the usb port you had inserted is malfunctioning or it is defective. But if the other usb devices like the flash disk is working then your new bought mouse is defective. Try to plug the usb mouse to the other ports available in your laptop.

The red light is connectivity to the dongle on the PC.
Check your mouse settings in Windows for the left mouse button settings.
Does the mouse move on the screen?
You can try reversing the mouse buttons to see if the button is defective. If you swap the buttons and now right mouse clicks do not work, the button is defective.

Only viable option is to either purchase or borrow a USB wireless mouse to try on your machine.

Can you ask a friend to try your mouse on their machine?

Sorry. probably not what you wanted to hear.

Hi,
To activate the mouse press the connect button on the receiver and look underneath the mouse for the connect button and press that.
All you have to do then is right click on the mouse to activate it.

HP Optical Mouse right click button does not work


Hello PearlySue,

Just download the latest driver for your operating system HERE
and reinstall the driver. Once you've done that, reconnect the mouse and hopefully, it should work. If it does, it would be that the mouse is kaput and you may have to replace it. If it is under warranty, just take it back to the point of purchase and get it replaced. If not, you may have to purchase a new one. But do try the latest driver download first and see...

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here. Please do not assign a rating until you feel your problem is resolved. I will try my best to help you further if need be.

If you are satisfied with my solution or have no other questions, please close the problem by assigning a FIXYA rating for my solution. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Cheers!
