Question about Logitech Inc G7 Cordless Laser Gaming Mouse DH931375
I have just got a logitech g7 gaming cordless mouse but although the pointer moves, i cannot click anything. Can you assist, it did not come with a CD so i don't know if one is needed.
Acting on advice from another FixYa string, we blew out the mouse and dock several times with canned air. It performed slightly better, but then as we continued to use the mouse it suddenly cleared and is working almost 100% now.
From reading earlier strings, I'm wondering why Logitech (in its product material received on purchase) doesn't recommend this as periodic maintenance for the mouse?

This is a well documented problem with the G7. Which sucks b/c this is the best mouse I've ever used. Thankfully though the problem appears to be the battery contacts on the inside of the mouse just get pushed back with changing the batteries. Solutions I've read about is putting a few layers of tape on the back of the battery to push the battery further forward agaisnt the rear stop. A drop of solder on each of the battery contacts would also do the trick, but getting the solder to stick is a trick. (If you try this, it is very bad to heat up a battery with a soldering iron, so be extremely careful). A better solution is to take the mouse apart, a brief overview of disembly can be found here,
Although since I didn't have teflon tape laying around...if you have used the mouse enough or just push a bit on the pads, you can see the outline of the screw holes, and just cut through the pad w/ an exacto knife. The one under the label already had scored lines which made that one easy. Once the cover is off I just used the tip of the exacto knife to pry the contacts out a bit more (remove the battery before disembling), cleaned the scroll wheel off, and put the mouse back together. Works like new so far, which is good b/c from what I've heard Logitech isn't very good about replacing the mice w/o a recipt (which I think I lost after a week, nevermind 3 years).
Hope that helps, this really is the best mouse.

I've had the now infamous G7 intermittant freezing issues for over a year now, first with XP and now with Vista 64bit on a brand new OS install (same hardware). As others have noted there is a strong consenus that this is a hardware issue potentially related to multiple factors including radio interferance, battery malfunction / contact issues, usb power, etc.
Here is a list of things to try, any of which may (or may not) solve the problem:
1) unplug the usb transmitter from the adapter and plug it back in. This did the trick for me about 50% of the time. Sometime toggling the DPI buttons (the + and - buttons on the mouse) up and down also helps.
2) if the freeze gets so bad that the cursor wouldn't move try shutting down the PC, unplugging the cord to the power supply, toggling the power supply switch to discharge the motherboard capacitors, then turn on the PC and reboot.
3) clean the battery contacts. Remove the battery and use one side of a Q-tip soaked in isopropanol and clean the contacts on the battery and inside the mouse (the 3 prongs sticking out of the end of the battery slot). Make sure to use the dry end of the Q-tip to remove all of the isopropanol before sticking the battery back into the mouse.
4) if the transmitter is near a wireless router or other transmitter (bluetooth radio, modem, etc.) place it as far away from these devices as possible.
