There should be a button on the receiver and under the mouse. Press the receiver one, then the mouse one while the light flashes. This sets them up together. (S'posed to)

Mouse model 1007 does not work. lights are both lit one on mouse one on receiver but cursor doesnt move. hit the connect button and still nothing. Your help would be greatly appreciated.


Remove the battery and put it back again

Try plugging the receiver in a new USB port and install the drivers again. If it is already installed, make sure the Mouse is being detected by viewing it in Device manager.

After following the above steps, you can press the connect button to sync up with the receiver.

The issue can most probably be related to corrupted/hang drivers so you can try restarting the computer and changing USB slot for receiver.

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!

Will not connect..its not in sync with my pc


Hello

Turn the switch to the "On" position, located underneath your mouse if your mouse has a switch.

Restart your computer to have a fresh starting point for troubleshooting. Sometimes, just restarting your computer can resolve issues you have with your HP wireless mouse.

Move your HP mouse about 39 inches away from your receiver.

Unplug your USB receiver, if you have one, and wait about 10 seconds.

Replug the USB receiver into another USB port, closer to your mouse if possible, then resynchronize your mouse and receiver.

Press and hold the connect button on your receiver, while plugged in, until you see the LED light flash.

Hold and press the connect button underneath your mouse until the LED light on the receiver stops flashing.

Check to make certain the button under your mouse does not get stuck in the depressed position and releases. Also, make certain you complete this resynchronizing process in 60 seconds, or else you must start over. Your mouse will now have a new identification number from resyncing.

Unplug the USB receiver, wait 10 seconds, then replug the receiver firmly into the USB slot, pushing it in entirely. You will notice the receiver's activity light turn on, then off in the next five seconds.

Press the connect button underneath your mouse until you see the activity light turn on again on the USB receiver.

Check to make certain the mouse connect button does not remain depressed when you release it.

Hello my GE ergonomic wireless mini mouse #98564, connects with my computer sometimes and not others. Currently it will not connect, it has new batteries, dings when the card is inserted into port, but...


I have been fighting with several of these GE Wireless Mice. Pressing the connect buttons on the mouse and USB receiver would not re-connect the mouse. As some ohere posting have pointed out, that little white circle on the usb plug shows where to squeeze to trigger the receiver to re-connect. When you've squeezed correctly, the red LED in the USB pug starts flashing brightly - not a dim flicker. You are supposed to then press the connect buttom under the mouse. Immediately the flashing LED on the receiver should go off, and your mouse should be ready to go. Each time you move the mouse, the same LED in the USB plug should flicker to show activity.

I have tried all this so many times without luck. Even replaced the mouse batteries several times - from the same pack.

Here is my 'FIX'. I think this mouse is very tight on the voltage it needs from the batteries. You need absolutely brand new, full power, good shape batteries. Bateries that look OK in another device, might not work in this mouse.

If you have a test meter and know how to use it, find a couple of batteries that are giving at least 1.6v each - more if possible. Pop these in, do the connect process above, and there is a good chance it will connect up fine.

Good luck.

I have model CE 0560. New batteries are in. Pressed the dricer button which lights up. The redlight on the bottom of the mouse is on and flashing. The controls on the mouse do not respond.


You will need to follow the manufacturers instructions on setting up the mouse. Here is a copy of the instructions for download (Below is a viewable copy). Based on what you indicate, it is possible that the drivers are not loaded for the usb reciever or that one of the installation steps was not done correctly or completely. Please review the instructions and start from the first step.
Here are the instructions:

Targus Wireless RF Mouse USER’S GUIDE Making Your Mobile Life Easier.® Visit our Web site at: www.targus.com Features and specifications are subject to change without notice. © 2004 Targus Group International and Targus, Inc.. 400-0111-001B

System Requirements To use the RF mouse, your computer must meet the following hardware requirements and run one of the operating systems listed below. Hardware • PC with a Pentium® processor or equivalent • USB interface • Mouse • Receiver • 2 AAA batteries • Three inch USB extension cable • Carrying pouch Targus Wireless RF Mouse Operating System • Windows® 98/Me/2000/XP NOTE: The third button and the scrolling wheel only work with the operating systems listed above. If you use the RF mouse with a different operating system, it will lose its enhanced features and function as a standard, twobutton mouse.

Connecting the Mouse Receiver To connect the mouse receiver: 1 Plug the USB receiver into an available USB port on your computer. 2 Your computer’s operating system identifies the receiver and begins installing the default driver. Follow any on-screen procedures to complete the default driver installation. Using the RF Mouse Installing the Batteries 1 If the mouse is on, slide the on/off switch on the bottom of the mouse to the “off” position. 2 Remove the battery cover from the top of the mouse by pressing the battery cover hinge located on the bottom of the mouse and sliding it off. NOTE: The battery cover is also the top cover of the mouse.
Targus Wireless RF Mouse 3 Insert the supplied batteries, making sure that the positive (+) and negative (-) ends of each battery match the polarity indicators inside the battery housing. WARNINGS: When replacing the batteries, you may use alkaline or other heavy-duty NiMH batteries. Never use an alkaline with a NiMH battery in a device. Avoid mixing new and used batteries in a device. 4 Slide the battery cover back into position until it “clicks” firmly into place. 5 Turn on the mouse be sliding the on/off switch on the bottom of the mouse to the “on” position. The optical sensor, located on the bottom of the mouse, glows red. Establishing a Communications Link The RF mouse has 256 identification codes that allow the mouse and its receiver to operate without interference from other radio frequency devices. After your computer detects the USB receiver and the driver software is installed, you must establish a communications link between the mouse and its receiver BEFORE you can use the mouse. To establish this link, you need to set the identification code so that the mouse works properly. To do this, follow the instructions below: Make sure that your computer is turned on and has detected the USB receiver before you establish a communications link. 1 Press and release the link button on the receiver.

Targus Wireless RF Mouse Receiver The USB connector rotates 90 degrees to facilitate easy connection to your computer. The receiver’s status light blinks when the receiver is activated. 2 Press and release the reset button, located on the bottom of the mouse. You are now ready to use the RF mouse. Mouse Power Management To power the mouse on and off, slide the on/off switch at the bottom of the mouse to the desired position. efafd91.jpg

To save battery power, turn off the mouse while traveling or when you’re not using it. CAUTION: Turning off the mouse will require you to synchronize again the next time you turn it back on. 90° rotation Status light Link button Sensor strips Low battery indicator

Targus Wireless RF Mouse Operating Hints For optimal performance and RF reception: • Place the receiver at least 8 inches (20 cm) away from all electrical devices, such as your monitor, speakers or external storage devices. If necessary, use a three-inch extension cable to keep the receiver away from the computer. Plug the receiver into the extension cable, and the extension cable to the computer. • Avoid using the RF mouse on a metal surface. Metals, such as iron, aluminum or copper, shield the radio frequency transmission and may slow down the mouse’s response time or cause the mouse to fail temporarily. • The RF mouse will enter a suspend mode at the same time your computer does. To activate the mouse, touch the sensor strips on the side of the mouse. • If your computer has a metal case that contains aluminum or magnesium, use the RF mouse to the side. The display panel may interfere with the radio frequency signal if you use the mouse directly in front of the computer. • Never use the RF mouse on a glass or mirrored surface as these surfaces will cause the mouse to fail temporarily. • To maximize battery life, use the RF mouse on a white, or light colored surface. Dark surfaces cause the mouse’s light emitter diode (LED) light to glow brighter, which causes the battery to discharge more rapidly.
Targus Wireless RF Mouse Sleep Mode • The mouse’s sleep mode feature activates after 8 minutes of non-operation. • To wake the mouse from sleep mode, touch the sensor strips on the side of the mouse. • When the battery charge is running low, the battery indicator light at the end of the mouse glows blue.

Targus Wireless RF Mouse Troubleshooting What do I do if the RF mouse does not work? • Make sure that the polarity of the batteries is correct. The positive (+) and negative (-) ends of each battery must match the positive (+) and negative (-) connections in the battery housing. • Check that the receiver’s USB connector is firmly attached to the USB port on your computer. • Verify that the device drivers are installed. • Make sure you have established a radio link between the mouse and its receiver. See “Establishing a Communications Link” in sections above

Hello Ghost_Riderr :)
When you bought the Wireless mouse and keyboard set, you might have even received another small device with a USB cable.. Right? Is known as receiver and it helps your computer receive and understand the signals from your wireless Keyboard and mice.
Connect the receiver to one of the USB ports available on your computer... Computer would detect and install the drivers from the receiver automatically and you should be ready to go :)

Let me know if that helps.

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivas

MS wireless notebook mouse 3000 not working?


A friend of mine brought me this problem with exactly the same problem. here is what I found. The small notch in usb device socket under the mouse was malfunctioning. If you press this notch you will find the mouse red light blink. If you further try pressing this notch at some point the mouse red light comes on constantly. Thats it, hold it there and try to connect first by pressing the usb device connect switch and then the mouse connect switch. The moment the connection is made the usb device stops blinking and the red light on the mouse starts blinking. Wow, it works now. Some one might just open the mouse and fix this microswtich for a permanent solution.
