Logitech wireless usb mouse not working

After changing the battery, the mouse will not work even though I know the battery is new. I tried hitting reset but it's still not working. The computer is recognizing the usb receiver but the mouse just isn't working!

    I have the same problem. It was working and suddently stopped working. I checked the batery and it needed replacement. Put in a new one that I tested and it was strong with no problems. Mouse still does not work. Tested the USP remote control on another computer and it was acknowledged but the mouse did not work there either. Tried rebooting and absolutely nothing I did worked. My ouse says perfromance laser on it.

    Everytime I turn off and dissconnect my computer and then hook it back up my cordless, laser mouse will not work. Last time I had to uninstall the logitech drivers for it to work. I can't do that this time as they are still uninstalled. What do I have to do to resolve this problem?

    My mouse was working fine last week-today-dead! Changed the battery-nothing.........the light won't come on-it won't work at all. I had to switch to the original one so I could work today. Any good suggestions, other than getting a brand new one?

Just see the bottom side of the receiver. you will fin a hole. clean the hole by blowing in the air. if this didnt work lust open the receiver(be careful not to break it, use plastic card or credit card on the side to open the hooks) and put 2 drops of white petrol on that part and leave it for one minute,then wipe it with cotton.


i was also having the same problem but solved it with the help of logitech tchnical department...

Mine died too after dead batteries were changed for fresh ones. BUT, I got it working again by flicking the battery in and out untill the light came on under it again. Also try pressing the connect button first before doing this. Took a while. Other times just left the batteries out till next morning and then tried again and it worked!

Hi -- My problem with the Logitech wireless mouse is not working at times. Changed batteries and hit the reset button. thanks. Elaine

Check your USB port. There may be a light on the dongle (the part that plugs into the USB.
Is the light on? If you know this is working and you have changed batteries the mouse should work. Try the other USB port as an alternative.

My Dynex Wireless Optical Mouse just stopped working

If the mouse light is not turning ON even though you have new batteries and the mouse is turned on, then you need to contact the manufacturer for RMA.

Thank you!

My battery is new. The light on the receiver is on, the driver is installed correctly, the red light on the mouse is on, (though not changing brightness levels like it normally does). And there's nothing...

Perhaps when changing batteries they lost the connection/pairing.
I don't know this particular mouse, but usually there's a small "connect" button on both the mouse and the receiver, you have to press them both for the devices to pair.

Mouse does not work I have installed new batteris

Try hitting the SYNC button on the bottom of the mouse at the same time as hitting the SYNC button on the USB receiver (assuming this is a USB wireless mouse). Also try removing the USB receiver and plugging it back in.

Stopped working. battery changed, reset button

Dear Barb400,
You might have tried this already however just wanted to make sure ... Did you try connecting the mouse to receiver .. I mean .. there is a connect button beneath the mouse and there is a connect button on the Receiver that's connected to the USB of your computer .. Did you try pressing connect button on receiver and mouse simultaneously for 2 to 3 seconds and release .. If not then please let me know if this works..
Even if it doesn't work still I would love to hear from you so that I can suggest some other troubleshooting steps.

Hope that works for you :)

I have to change batteries constantly - always new ones -

Try cleaning the battery contacts inside the mouse with cotton and isopropyl alcohol, be careful not to spread liquid, or leave hair.

Mouse not working

I opened the mouse and took the batteries out and double checked their placement and even though they were in correctly the first time, the mouse started working the second time.

Thanks for your response.
