My microsoft wireless laser mouse 6000 went out all of a sudden tried to change the battries but that didn't work the keyboard is working just fine,help!! i love this mouse, thanks marsha

You may just need to push the reset buttons on the antenna and under the mouse. That forces the mouse to reconnect to the wireless.

Mine does this once in a while. Normally it just works after putting fresh batteries in but once in a while I have to push all the resets to get it to behave.

There will be a button in the middle of the antenna. And if you look at the bottom of the mouse there will either be a red button or a small hole (use a toothpick). You need to push the button and release. Try just the mouse button first. If that doesn't get it then push the antennna then the mouse. Your user manual will have a diagram and a step by step on how do this if you need it.

The problem with my microsoft 6000 v2.0 keyboard is this. I have changed batteries (4x with brand new), the light on keyboard comes on, then after about a minute, the light goes off and keyboard does not...

Not to sound patronizing, did you push the buttons in the order it requires you to? The sequesnce and timing is important. Also, the keyboard and mouse have to be pretty close to the receiver, and the receiver need to be almost completely in a direct visual line with the devices on these MS keyboard desktop sets. I had a lot of trouble with mine until I put the receiver within 1-1/2 to 2 feet of the keyboard and mouse. Next time buy a logitech top-of-the-line set and you will not have this kind of trouble. I no longer have trouble with my 6000 desktop set, though, just in case you are wondering. I use the Logitech set on my newer computer and the 6000 on the XP .
Hope this helps.

How do I increase the range on my wireless microsoft 6000 keyboard and microsoft wireless laser mouse 6000 v2.0.

I have a Microsoft Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse 6000 that also has a very short range. The only solution I've found so far is to plug the receiver into a USB extention cord and run the cord toward the mouse.

My mouse was just working and all of a sudden it stopped, I changed the batteries, reset the small button on the bottom and also pushed the button on the plug in portion. Help Allen

I have a miscrosoft wireless laser mouse 6000, and it also stopped working on my laptop. I changed the battery, still not working. I tested the battery in another device, and it was good. I moved the mouse to another computer, and it did not work. The light on the usb connector was lit. [No changes at all to my laptop.]. It seemed like there was no power to the mouse, and I looked at the contacts inside the mouse. The contact just inside the battery opening appeared to be bent down away from the contact on the battery tray. So, I pulled it up a little so it would connect when the battery drawer closed, and (after tweaking it a couple of times), it finally worked!

Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 doesn't work

If you take the batteries out there is a screw in there. unscrew and open (not easy) with flat knife in the edges wiggling.
attach and touch all the inside wires. I have had the same problem and it is an internal connector problem. Opening and closing aint easy and will take a little patience but it will work.
Good luck
