What is the max distance that the mouse can be from the receiver?

I have Microsoft optical sesktop 4000 wireless and for some reason my mouse doesn't work if it's more than 15-20cm away from the receiver, is it supposed to be that way?
The keyborad works fine even if it's 2 meters away..

Thanks!

I've had this wireless mouse for 3 months (microsoft wireless mobile mouse 4000). it just stopped working. the battery is fresh (the red light is still on) and the transmitter is still firmly in the usb...


When you replace the Battery on a Wireless Mouse you have to link the Mouse again with your USB receiver. There should be a Button on the bottom of the Mouse that could be marked, Reset, or Link or something similar. Just turn on your Mouse and hold this Button for a few second until the USB receiver finds the signal.

I have microsoft bluetooth optical mouse 4000 it suddenly stopped connecting to the receiver, as I cannot move mouse anymore


Just to clarify, this is a wireless optical mouse, right? Please try the steps below:

1. Use fresh batteries.
2. Make sure that the mouse is turned on.
3. Check if there's a connect button on the wireless receiver and underneath the mouse. If there is, try holding down the two connect buttons at the same time for five seconds and then release them both.
4. Try moving the mouse.
5. Make sure that there are no possible wireless interference between the wireless receiver and mouse like the base of a cordless phone, cell phone etc.

If same problem occur after doing the steps below, then you may want to contact the manufacturer for RMA. This Microsoft 4000 has a three year limited warranty.

Thank you!

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

You don't! Why do you need to open it.
Not sure what the problem is but try this.
Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Mouse from the USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When the program asks you to connect the Mouse to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

Microsoft wireless 4000


Screen saver mode, as you know, is entered when the computer senses no activity (including mouse) for a defined period of time. for some reason, the computer thinks there's been some kind of activity. If you have an extreamly sensitive mouse, vibrations could be being picked up "tricking" the computer into thinking there is activity.

The other possibility is that the computer might not be able to respond to the mouse if it went into screen saver mode (perhaps a preference setting with the wireless mouse) and has decided that while operating using a wireless mouse screen saver will be deactivated. Look into your preferences or settings relating to the wireless mouse.
