Gigaware wireless mouse instructions


The first thing to realize is that most wireless keyboards and mice will eat regular alkaline batteries for lunch. This is where most of my clients have gone wrong. It seems they are replacing batteries in a device around every month or even more often. For an office full of wireless devices, this can add up very quickly. Plus it also seems that certain devices act inconsistently with regular alkaline batteries. If you need to purchase a non-rechargeable battery for your wireless devices, you should purchase the "advanced" or "performance" type of batteries such as the Energizer Lithium or Duracell Quantum brands. For what it's worth, the Apple devices usually come with Energizer Lithium brand batteries. However, high performance batteries are more expensive than alkaline batteries and their cost will add up over time. So I don't recommend buying these batteries except in a pinch.
What I really recommend are a particular type of rechargeable battery called low-discharge Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH). I believe many people stay away from rechargeable batteries because of misconceptions based upon past generations of rechargeable batteries. Many people perceive rechargeable batteries as expensive and prone to failure. But the worst stigma associated with rechargeable batteries are that they don't hold their charge and never seem to be ready when they are needed. The reality is that today's new generation of low-discharge NiHM rechargeable batteries have resolved many of the issues that previous batteries suffered from. Low-discharge NiMH batteries hold their power on the order of months or years after charging. Unlike previous iterations of rechargeable batteries that lost their charge quickly, you can charge these batteries any time and they will be ready for use when you need them.

Describe how to turn on a kensington pocket mouse


The first thing you gotta do is insert two AAA batteries into the mouse. The batteries are supplied -- and in my case at least, they were Energizers -- but the battery cover is very difficult to get off. All I can tell you is -- keep pressing down and forward, like the instructions say, and eventually you'll get it. You just might sweat off several pounds first.

The next issue could have been avoided if the instructions had simply told me what NOT to do. (I subsequently emailed Kensington and WAS told NOT to do it.) To connect the cordless mouse, you plug a tiny receiver into the USB port in lieu of a cord. But you MUST use a port on the computer itself. You CANNOT plug the receiver into a USB hub. If you try to, the receiver's pilot light will light up, but you won't be able to establish a link with the mouse.

With the receiver properly connected, establishing the link involves simply pressing a button on the receiver, then pressing the "connect" button on the mouse. When you press the receiver button, the pilot light starts to blink. When you establish the link, the pilot light glows steadily, but flickers each time you move the mouse. The linking procedure is simple enough, except that the `connect" button is recessed into the bottom of the mouse, and thus needs a pen or some similar object to press it.

After doing all this, I still thought the mouse wasn't working properly, but to be fair, this issue WAS covered in the instructions. This optical mouse is picky about the surfaces you use it on. It turns out that the worst surface to use is a black, reflective one -- which exactly describes my computer table. After putting the mouse on a sheet of white paper, everything was fine. I have to say, though, that this was NOT an issue with the optical mouse I'd been using -- which is probably why I glossed over that part of the instructions.

    My 98812 mini mouse does not Put new batteries


    Try plugging and unplugging the usb adapter a few times first. You might also try it in another usb port, sometimes that will, miraculously, fix it. Then, maybe reload the software. Good luck!

    Microsoft mouse 3000 doesn't work


    I email you idiots to fix a problem not to buy another product. Why should I buy a premium plan from you. With any luck it probably won't work either. Yes I did fix the problem. I threw the worthless mircosoft wireless mouse 3000 away. Problem solved

    Purchased an inland wireless mouse and it came with 2 AAA batteries, but I can's find a cavity to place the batteries. Is there an instruction manual?


    Yes, they made it really hard to see where the batteries go. You need to slide the solid part of the top away from the two buttons. It takes some force to do this.

    New wireless mouse quit working after 2 days.


    Hi bobbii1968,

    1. Try replacing the batteries. Do not use alkaline batteries. Use ordinary Eveready battery.
    2. Check polarity when placing battery in mouse
    3. Ensure red infrared light is on. If on, there is hope in getting the mouse to work
    4. Plug in USB wireless receiver.
    5. Press button on receiver and below the mouse.
    6. This should work fine.
    Update us again if the above does not work?

    Thank you for taking time to read this.

    REPLACE BATTERY


    Just behind the wheel there are three raised lines in the plastic, just press down on this spot and slide the top back away from the wheel and replace the two AA batteries within. Life should be this easy.

    Where's the batteries?


    Hello,
    I had a similar problem with my battery going dead in my Logitech mouse. There was a "aa" battery located under the rear top cover. it's the part that has the Logitech logo on it. You simply press the button underneath the mouse @ the back that has a LOCK symbol on it & lift off the cover. Put in a new battery & you should be good to go.
