For wireless mouse, it has a USB dongle or base that has transceiver to receive command from the mouse via RF signal.

The mouse has a laser underneath that detects the dpi (dots per inch) movement of the mouse. It also has transmitter that communicates with the USB transceiver via RF signal.

If you have more questions, just let us know by posting your questions.

Have a great day!

Hallo i can not get my new wireless mouse to work


Make sure the mouse batteries are fully charged.

Also make sure the mouse is not too far away from the base / cradle and there is nothing blocking the sensor on the front of the mouse cradle.

Make sure all the cables are fully inserted. Check both ends of the power adapter plug going into the back of the mouse cradle and the plugs leading to the back of the computer.

Try cleaning the little red LED light under the mouse with a QTip to remove any dust.


Make sure you restart your computer with the mouse cradle / base plugged into the mouse port.
Then be sure to connect the base and the mouse by pushing the button on the base unit, then the small button on the underside of the wireless mouse.

Also try using a different mouse pad. Some work better than others with certain brands of wireless mice. And also make sure there is not another wireless mouse being used in close proximity. The two can often interfere with each other.


Thank you and good luck.

Sir, i want to know about the optical mouse in detail. what is the important point of it to use. thanks, tin


Hi,
Optical mouse was developed by Agilent Technologies and introduced to the world in late 1999, the optical mouse actually uses a tiny camera to take 1,500 pictures every second. Able to work on almost any surface, the mouse has a small, red light-emitting diode (LED) that bounces light off that surface onto a complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) sensor.
The CMOS sensor sends each image to a digital signal processor (DSP) for analysis. The DSP, operating at 18 MIPS (million instructions per second), is able to detect patterns in the images and see how those patterns have moved since the previous image. Based on the change in patterns over a sequence of images, the DSP determines how far the mouse has moved and sends the corresponding coordinates to the computer. The computer moves the cursor on the screen based on the coordinates received from the mouse. This happens hundreds of times each second, making the cursor appear to move very smoothly.
Optical mice have several benefits over wheeled mice:
No moving parts means less wear and a lower chance of failure.
There's no way for dirt to get inside the mouse and interfere with the tracking sensors.

Increased tracking resolution means smoother response.
They don't require a special surface, such as a mouse pad.

Although LED-based optical mice are fairly recent, another type of optical mouse has been around for over a decade. The original optical-mouse technology bounced a focused beam of light off a highly-reflective mouse pad onto a sensor. The mouse pad had a grid of dark lines. Each time the mouse was moved, the beam of light was interrupted by the grid. Whenever the light was interrupted, the sensor sent a signal to the computer and the cursor moved a corresponding amount. This kind of optical mouse was difficult to use, requiring that you hold it at precisely the right angle to ensure that the light beam and sensor aligned. Also, damage to or loss of the mouse pad rendered the mouse useless until a replacement pad was purchased. Today's LED-based optical mice are far more user-friendly and reliable.

Thanks and regards,

Mouse Stops Responding


You need to reset the mouse and keyboard to the sensor. On the sensor(base) you should have a button and under the mouse you should have also a button. Press the sensor(base) button first and quickly the one under the keyboard and mouse. If the doesn't work shut down the system, unplug the mouse and keyboard sensor(base) and re-plug it back in . Start the system and try the process again.

Any Radio Shack or Best Buy for sure and even Staples and the like will have wireless devices that should help you figure out how to hook up what you have. For that matter a new set might be so inexpensive as to save you the hassle.

Good luck,

Problem with Logitech Cordless Optical Mouse


In the future you would help out if you gave a mode #

However, usually, aside from being dead, their are two good
things to try before despair:
  1. You should disconnect the mouse and try blowing and perhaps wiping the area where the laser is as it may be that the laser is being blocked and therefore cannot function [be careful not to actually touch the laser itself and to not use materials that leave lint!] A cloth for glasses would be an ideal item, 2nd to compressed air.
  2. You can try the all-out start again tactic: Remove the base unit (part plugged in) and remove the batteries. Now reboot your computer. Assuming you have Windows, after rebooting, plug the USB part of the mouse back into the computer, and reload good batteries. If you have not received a message from Windows yet, look for an 'association button', which is what you press either on the base, the mouse, or both at the same time. With many models (you didn't specify) you have to go through this 'Holding Down of The Button(s) so that the mouse and the wireless base will recognize each other

So, to review basically, you want to try and clear away and particles or build up from the view of the laser (on the bottom of the mouse)
And/or you will unplug the USB base and remove batteries, reboot (let Windows fully load) - replace the base and the batteries to the mouse, and finally if no recognition, look for a button somewhere on both the base and the mouse and hold it down for a good few seconds.

If you still have no joy, please post back here with model and a more specific detail of how it stopped working.

*Last Gem of Knowledge*
It has been known to happen many times, that if you contact Logitech and explain that your mouse stopped working by no fault of your own, Logitech will replace the mouse for free

Good Luck

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.

Mouse not functioning


You should have a USB adapter that goes from the Charging base to your computer to make the connection. the wireless is from the base (charging unit) to the mouse.  once you connect your USB it should find the mouse and work. you may need to sync the base unit and mouse to complete the process, by first click the sync button on the base unit then the small sync button found on the bottom of the mouse
