Question about Microsoft Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse VSBX300008

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

Hi, my brother bought a Microsoft Notebook Optical Mouse 3000 a while ago. And it is not working any longer. I can't exactly remember what he said he did to it. But the mouse's red light at the bottom flashes according to the movement, so I am sure the mouse is fine. But the Microsoft Notebook Reciever v2.0 I don't think is working. Doesn't the little light at the end of it always stays on? Because when I go to plug it into the laptop, it quickly flashes. I have tried hitting the connect button on both, and I opened the Reciever, it looked like nothing was burnt or anything with the outside appearance was wrong. I am thinking it is the wiring/writing of the mouse that is messed up. It worked fine before, so it isn't since we bought it. Please Help!!

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.

There is indeed a battery inside it, but if you can see the laser, then it normally has enough power. Did you try pressing the PAIR button on the bottom of it? You can also try pulling out the receiver unit from the USB socket and reinsert it.

Microsoft Notebook optical mouse 3000 not working


Have you tried changing the port in which the USB wireless receiver is plugged?

Or is the receiver internal to the notebook?

If the receiver is internal, try updating the drivers for your machine by navigating to the manufacturer's support site.

If you plug a wired mouse into the machine what happens? If you get the same result, it may indicate a problem with the USB settings on your machine. I would, again, suggest updating the drivers for your machine.

If that's the case, try plugging another USB device into the machine and see if it works properly.

If none of those options provide results, I recommend you return the mouse for a refund or a replacement, especially if you have the receipt.

I hope I was able to help you. Good luck!

Okay, a coworker had this problem and it was a fairly easy fix, first, plug the USB reciever into a direct USB port, then pess the connect button on the underside of the mouse, when the red light starts blinking let go and then press it and hold, and at the SAME TIME press and hold the connect button on the receiver until both the receiver light and the mouse light turn on steadily, and voila!
