Hi my mouse has worked for years. I just changed the battery in the mouse and now it will no longer work. The jump drive turns red when I push the mouse up to it then nothing happens. I went to Control...


From your description, it sounds like the wireless connection between the mouse and the USB receiver (jump drive) isn't resetting. Here are the steps to reset the connection after changing batteries:

With the computer on, mouse on, and receiver installed in the USB port...
1. Turn the mouse over and aim the front at the receiver, like this:
thomascha103_8.jpg 2. Press the "connect" button on the bottom of the mouse. It's small and round, next to the power switch.
3. Then press the "connect" button on the receiver
(the connect buttons always have to be pressed in this order)
4. When you press the button on the receiveer, the light will turn on. Keep the mouse pointed directly at the receiver until the linkage is complete and the light turns off.

That whole process has to be completed in under 60 seconds. If it takes longer, you'll have to start over.

At least, that's how it works for me. Here's a link to the user manual with other helpful troubleshooting tips:

Best of luck!

Keyboard does not type


If all the keys on the keyboard have stopped functioning follow the instructions below to reconnect the keyboard.

This problem is likely to be a lost connection. The connection between the mouse and the USB mini-receiver or the keyboard and the USB mini-receiver can be lost due to several reasons such as:
  • Low batteries
  • Moving the USB mini-receiver from one USB port to another
  • Moving the USB mini-receiver to another computer
  • Plugging the USB mini-receiver into a USB hub or other unsupported device such as a KVM switch (your USB mini-receiver must be plugged directly into your computer)
  • Using your cordless mouse/keyboard on metal surfaces
  • Radio frequency (RF) interference of more powerful wireless devices such as:
    • Wireless speakers
    • Computer power supplies
    • Monitors
    • Cellular telephones
    • Garage door openers
Eliminate any problem sources mentioned above that might be affecting your devices.

Follow the procedures below to reconnect your mouse and keyboard.
  1. Make sure the USB mini-receiver is directly and securely plugged into a working USB port on your computer.
  2. Make sure the mouse is turned on. The on/off indicator on the bottom of the mouse should be green. If the on/off indicator is not illuminated, press and hold the red connect button on the bottom of the mouse until the on/off indicator is green.

  3. Press and release the red connect button on the underside of the USB mini-receiver. This will broadcast a signal to your mouse. This broadcast will last only a few seconds, so you must perform the next step quickly.

  4. Quickly press the red connect button on the bottom of the mouse for 1 second, then release it. The power indicator will flash briefly and then turn green. The mouse is now connected to the receiver.

    Red Connect Button NOTE: Holding down the red button on the mouse for more than 2 seconds may cause your mouse to turn off instead of connecting. If this occurs, start again at step number 2.
  5. Move your mouse to see if the cursor moves. If the cursor follows the mouse movements, your mouse is now connected.
  6. Press and release the red connect button on the underside of the USB mini-receiver. This will broadcast a signal to your keyboard. This broadcast will last only a few seconds, so you must perform the next step quickly.

  8. You will hear a short beep. The keyboard is now connected to the receiver.
  9. Test your keyboard to see if it is working. If the mouse now works but the keyboard still does not, see Knowledge Base article 9144.

Where is the link button on the actual mouse device? The USB is being recognized, but the mouse isn't working.


There are two buttons (not just one) you have to push to re-link the mouse and the USB receiver. Plug the little receiver in, push the tiny "connect" circle on the receiver, then wait for the red light to start blinking. Then press the little link button on the bottom of the mouse.

Did you try pushing the link button on the bottom of the mouse (right after pushing the connect switch on the receiver?)

Cordless mouse?


Try pushing the connect button on the bottom of the mouse. Also check to see if there is a button on the reciever. If so, you should press that button first. Make sur there is no tab sticking out from the moust that needs to be removed. If this doesn't work, reply with the brand, and model of the mouse.

A4Tech R7 problem


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.
if that doesn't work try
Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Mouse Receiver from the USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When the software program asks you to connect the Mouse Receiver to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud
