Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer 2.0 problems

Good batteries, I believe the driver is up to date but it sometimes takes several clicks to get the thing to function properly

  • Anonymous Aug 27, 2008

    I have been using this same mouse for about 3 or 4 years and now my left mouse button doesn't function all the time. I have to click it a few times and wave it around in the air before it will "work". I wonder if the button wore out, or something else is wrong, but the right button and the scroll button function fine. I did replace the batteries but that hasn't helped.

    Maybe it's time to replace this poor ole mouse and put him to rest...

Make sure the batteries are good and try
Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch.
Hope this helps you. Bud

MS Intellimouse Explorer 2.0 scroll wheel only scrolls down


There are number of reasons and solutions why your mouse isn't working properly. No.1. Resynchronize your mouse to the Pc. It's best to use the reset button for resynchronization. No. 2. Change the Port (Usb port). Sometimes even the small problem with the port created this problem. No.3. Replace the battery. If you are sure about the battery is Live, you can try with another make eg. Sony to Everydy. No.4. Interfaces Problem. Make sure that no electronic items, metal box, Speaker, etc doesn't obstruct the connection. No.5. Driver Update. Update the driver to the latest version. You must update from the particular website. If you are using Microsoft product, you must update the driver from the Microsoft's website. No.6. Different System. Try out the device on several devices not only one. If you still have difficulty, you can visit this site for more details. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/838398 Good luck

Microsoft Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer 2.0 - low battery pop up


I would disregard the pop up as in most cases the batteries are still good. I'd use the mouse till it stopped functioning. Why it does that I haven't figured out yet. I beleive a value has to be changed in the Registry. If I figure it out I will let you know.

Wireless Intellimouse Explorer Not Working.


Normal 0 Normal 0 Recheck the magnifier to see if its set right.
Go to Control Panel and click on the Mouse icon. Then the mouse properties will appear showing the mouse buttons. In the Left column is the button settings. The bottom one is the Right Button, which is set for Magnify. Whenever you hit the Right Side button the magnifier will turn on. To turn it off, hit the Right Side Button and off it goes. You can change any of the button settings by clicking on the drop down.
Hope this helps. Bud

Having experienced the same problem with (2) Intellimouse Explorers I analyzed the problem and found a solution after driver updates failed to correct it.

Remove the single screw inside the battery compartment, lift off the rear portion of the mouse top cover, then gently lift up the back end of the remaining shell.

Once you have the inner workings exposed, use a Q-Tip to dab rubbing alcohol on the right click button's micro switch, manually clicking it a couple dozen times to clean the button's inner workings. Do not work about shorting out the mouse, as alcohol is non-conductive, and non-corrosive. It will not harm the electronic circuitry.
It doesn't hurt to do the same for the left click micro switch and the side button switches as well, as long as the mouse is disassembled.

Next use a clean Q-Tip to clean the edges of the top & bottom housing. This is the most likely cause of the right click button failure - there are small particles of debris lodged along the edge where the travel of the right click button is supposed to depress, but cannot.

Next, turn the top cover over and move the catch on the right underside forward and push it gently downward to uncatch the edge of that latching clip. The click on the left underside is a bit more complicated and requires a gentle lifting of the rear pins and moving the left clip more to the left and downward to release it from it's locking position.
Once you have freed the actual button's cover from the rest of the top cover, clean it thoroughly with a Q-Tip swab soaked with rubbing alcohol.

While the works are exposed, check for hair and debris around the scroll wheel as well. The small plastic wheel cover lifts off starting from the read and tipping up and forward.

Carefully reassemble all parts and hte right click function should now be restored. The debris has been removed and the right click now has it's full range of travel restored.
