Question about Keyboards & Mice

1 Answer

Fix mouse Hi- I have a Logitech VX Revolution mouse. The small red wire that goes to one of the battery clips has broken. I need to open the case of the mouse to get to the very short wire in order to solder it. I can't get the case open as there are no screws (that I can see) on the back of the mouse. Can you tell me how to get it open? Thanks, Hank Mackie

Re: fix mouse

Most mice these days are heat or epoxy sealed. There is no real hope of getting inside of them to service them at all. The only place that could be hiding any screws would be under the teflon pads, but it's becoming a much less used method to assemble mice.

Hi there,
There are a number of reasons why your mouse isn't reponding:
  1. Check that the batteries are full
  2. Check that the mouse is synchronised with the adapter
  3. Check you have the correct drivers installed.
If none of these things help you, then if your mouse is still under warranty, I'd ask for another one.
Good luck! John

Mouse will not charge when put in the base

I have a very bad solution about this, but it works on my mouse that also doesn't work. Try to put a tiny bit of water ( or spit Oo ) on the little, usually copper, receivers on the mouse. That makes for a better contact. Just get your finger wet and touch those receivers.

Need to replace the battery in a Logitech MX Revolution Mouse

Hello. Yes, it is quite simple to remove the battery of a Logitech MX Revolution mouse yet for some reason when going through the Logitech product support website it states that it is not possible. Just remove the 4 teflon pads located on the bottom of the mouse and then remove the four screws located under the pads. Once this is done turn the mouse back upright and remove the top off of the mouse. I would suggest temporarily removing the flex cable that holds the top and bottom of the mouse together. There is a small metal clip that holds the battery in place that must now be removed.
NOW FOR THE VERY IMPORTANT PART. There are two different generations of the Logitech MX Revolution mouse which have different batteries. The first Generation uses the L-LY11 battery and the newer generation of the MX Revolution uses the L-LL11 battery. There is no way to tell which battery your mouse uses without first opening up the mouse. Once opened you can easily tell which battery your mouse uses. Here is a link to a site that shows you an example of the L-LY11 battery: MX Revolution L-LY11 Battery
Here is a link to a site that shows you an example of the L-LL11 battery: L-LL11 Battery for Logitech MX Revolution Mouse
As you can see the L-LY11 battery has wires and a plastic connector and the L-LL11 battery has contacts. You should definitely determine which battery your mouse uses ahead of time to eliminate any frustration caused by ordering the wrong battery ahead of time.

Regarding the VX revolution mouse

Hi. Partial / Potential solution:
I think there are screws holding the mouse together, and that they are located under the 'plastic' pads on the bottom of the mouse. On mine, the pad directly behind where the battery goes (towards the 'tail' of the mouse / palm of hand) popped off easily to reveal a screw that came out easily enough. The other pads are stickier, tho, so for me it's not worth trying to mess with them now. If it gets worse, I'll take them off and see what's to see. If yours is pretty bad, it might be worth it. Cheers...

VX Revolution Cordless Mouse for Notebooks dead as a door nail...

I see no reason that the mouse should not work. They have the Xop driver and the install software. Download both and also read henote that they are talking about in. red. I didn not download it myself. If this doesn't work you can get a common PS 2 mouse for a small amount  most anywhere including Walmart.,en?softwareid=4338&osid=1

Not sure how your mouse is configured but will give you two possibilities to use.

Turn your mouse over and see if there is a small door on the bottom where the batteries are located.

Normal 0 If the mouse doesn't have a little door to open on the bottom, then try this. Just behind the Left and Right keys where your hand rests, apply firm pressure down on the cover and slide to the rear. Some mouse manufactures have used this type of access to replace the batteries.
Hope this helps. Bud
