Question about Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000

Is the light supposed to stay on? I just got started with a wireless keyboard and mouse and it looks like the laser light on the mouse stays lit all the time? Is that normal? How often will I have to replace the battery?

Yes it is normal for the laser light to be on all the time.
And you will change your battery depending on its durability.
So when the mouse or keyboard stops working then you should know its time to change your battery.
I hope this solution has been helpful.

Hello,We purchased a Logitech Revue today and it will NOT work?!? First, Is the green light on the keyboard suppose to STAY lit? Could be a bad keyboard?


No, the green light goes out after about 10 seconds: saves battery.You don't mention any other problems, but I will make a suggestion. Start with the simplest setup. Run a HDMI cable from the Revue to the TV. Nothing else. Turn on the Revue and the keyboard and follow on-screen instructions. You must know your Wi-Fi address.

Just bought my wireless mouse. Is the laser light that is shineing very brightly suppose to stay on all the time? Everytime I pick it up it is so bright and won't go off.


Yes, that light stays on all the time. That's how the mouse works; it bounces the light off the surface the mouse is sitting on back up into a sensor. In many models the light actually gets brighter when you pick the mouse up. The sensor sees less light reflected and increases the amount of light. Just use the mouse and don't worry about what you see if you pick it up.

Microsoft wireless desktop receiver 3.1. All 3 light stay on!?!?


using a manual keyboard and mouse, make sure the driver is installed. then, remove and reinsert the wireless receiver, and wait for windows to find it. Next, on the wifi devices, scan for signal. If that fails, reboot and try again. Sadly, this is typical of any blue tooth kb and mouse set. it either works very well, or not at all. Thats why i put my money into standard wired equipment.

Try replacing the batteries. Wireless mice do funky things when the batteries are low.

Well I am sure I have solved our problem. With a little searching on Google I came across this link to microsoft downloads. It's a PDF file and is a user guide that is relevant to a number of different wireless optical mouse's from MS. So here is the link, but I have also left a copy on the "User Manual & Guides" area of this site.

http://download.microsoft.com/download/1/3/9/139a8c30-34cc-4453-a449-7a1c586a3ae5/X09-50622_Wireless_Mouse.pdf

If MS were to make their support pages more user friendly I might have found it. I must have spent an hour going in circles looking for this exact guide.
Oh, the answer to our problem is that the laser does not shut off, it just powers down to a standby mode. Sneak up on it when next you are going to turn your computerand you will see the laser is in dim mode.

Anyway I hope this has answered your question, as it has done for me. Cheers Garry.

Push the connect button on the wireless base, then push the connect button on the keyboard or mouse, that is supposed to reconnect the device. Make sure the wireless base is close enough to the keyboard.mouse, and nothing metal is blocking the path between the keyboard/mouse and the base.
