My mouse seemed still to have green LED on, but didn't work any more
I dropped my cordless logitech mouse from my pant pocket, and when I picked it back, I still saw the green light on when the dongle is not attached to the mouse (ie. recognized that it was not in the off position). But when I attached the dongle to the laptop, the mouse was not recognized and not work any more. Look like there was some red LED at the center of the mouse didn't light up.
I know some electronics, can I do something here to fix it?

Re: My mouse seemed still to have green LED on, but...
Most likely the circuit board has been cracked. In this case, there are most likely traces that have been broken, maybe a connector disconnected, or maybe some parts on the circuit board were mechanicaly broken.
If your mouse uses SMD technology, there is very little chance that it is economicaly serviceable unless it is an easy fix.

This is from the manual for the Logitech MX700 cordless optical mouse.
1. Press connect button on Base Station.
Its LED blinks green. 2. Press connect
button on mouse bottom. Base Station LED
turns solid green, and then off.
Had the same problem. But before filling the logitech RMA from to get a replacement, I put new batteries into the mouse and the mouse worked again.
I am using rechargeable batteries, and I seems to me even if the green light on the bottom of the mouse is on, the driver warning for low battery does not come on. May be the volage drops to fast with a older set of batteries.
Try out new batteries. Hope this helps.
I am using the LX7 mouse for more than 2 years with lost of abuse (>10x drops from shoulder hight to hard office floor, sitting dongle in my pocket and dropping my backpack onto the floor with the dongle on the botton in the backpack).
