Question about Logitech Keyboards & Mice

1 Answer

Logitech Mouse Mouse keeps skipping and not connecting or going where I drag it. Sometimes it won't move at all, sometimes it disappears and sometimes I can move it temporarily and then it will pause and stop and freeze. Makes getting anything done pretty irritating. Please help!

    I am going thru same thing...and unless i hold the device almost on top of mouse, it drags...stops....wont move....and this mouse is less than 9 months old! I decided to look up a reason before throwing it through a window out of complete frustration!!!!!

    I have the same problem, here's what I posted on a tech help site, which I have not gotten a solve for yet.

    So here's the thing:
    My mouse will refuse to workconsistently; when I click and drag it will either: click and drag,only click, click and drag and then restart or stop as I am dragging,click and drag and then click again when i finish dragging, or nothingwill happen at all. The most common one is when I am draggingsomething, and while I am dragging, the cursor will drop whatever it was dragging.
    When i click once, it may click one, or decide to double click. (I have already checked my double click speed settings)
    I am working on a labtop, not using the mousepad, but using a logitech mouse connected into the labtop via USB. I cannot disable the mousepad, and the mousepad works Absolutely fine. I have not had this problem until a week or so ago. I have not changed anything on my computer other than installing a game and letting microsoft install its' useless updates.

    Before anyone suggests solutions that don't work:

    Yes, I am using a mousepad.
    Yes, this is an optical mouse.
    No, click and drag still doesn't work when the transmitter is even right next to the mouse.

    And also: My problem, for the first time, has mostly resolved itself (still happens sometimes, but not all the time) with my doing nothing but using the computer like I usually do. I am still afraid the problem will crop up again, however.

Where do you have the transmitter sitting? If it is below a desk (i.e., sitting on top of the computer tower, etc.) it may not be emitting a strong or consistent signal. Try moving it within a clear line of sight to the mouse. If that doesn't work, it could be a problem with the mouse itself and need to be replaced.

Hope this helps, let me know

I sometimes can't drag letters. Do these logetch's wear out?


Any mouse will have it's life. Chances are the buttons on the inside of the mouse soldered to the main board are going bad. Replacing them requires disassembling the mouse and some solder work. It isn't really worth the time, since you can get wireless mice for $20 or less nowadays.

Logitech wireless optical mouse won't move computer cursor


Sometimes on wireless mice the contacts get warped or bent, so when you move it or set it down the batteries are not making full contact on both ends and the mouse loses power.

You can try adjusting the contacts or using a conductive material to make the contact (like a staple or paperclip), but you're probably better off spending the $10 or $20 to get a new mouse.

Wireless Optic Logitech mouse performace


I had the exact same problem with my original Logitech wireless mouse that came with a wireless keyboard. I eventually figured that the button component inside the mouse wasn't making consistent contact causing unintended double clicking or dropping while dragging. I fixed it by doing some soldering to switch the left mouse button with the right mouse button, since I didn't have to use double clicking or dragging with the right mouse button. It worked pretty well for several months until the switched left button started showing the same problem again. Now my newer Logitech mouse (it's more expensive Nano wireless mouse) is having the same problem after about 1 year using it. I think there's a serious durability problem with the button component that Logitech is putting on their mice. I may do the same trick again on this mouse, but now I don't consider Logitech as a good mouse manufacturer anymore. They used to make good quality hardwares but I guess they aren't that good anymore with all those cheap Chinese suppliers for their parts. :(

My cursor slides off of the screen (by itself) when I click & drag!


Seems there is something internally wrong in your mouse or you use the mouse on a very strange material base. I have heard that optical mouses can have strange behavior when used on glass tables or thick woolen carpets, a mouse pad would solve it. If that does not work and it's still under warranty, just ask for replacement or repair.

Sticky mouse


Search for out other postings here at FixYa. The sticky situation is one I had, but it was the actual wear inside the mouse buttons to microswitch contacts. I would have to click numerous times to get my mouse to function. The plastic pads get worn after some intense use. Check for our solutions here in other postings.

Logitech MX610 problem.


Hi, I have had the same problem with a Logitech Cordless Desktop setup. The mouse and keyboard had been used in an office environment for about two years, then the mouse would double click unexpectedly, would not hold items when trying to drag them and the right click would sometimes fail to work ...then sometimes it would work perfectly. I tried all the other suggested cures such as cleaning out the inside of the mouse, new batteries and reinstalling the driver which did not prove to be effective. A good clean improved things for a couple of days but the symptoms returned. At this point, I dismantled the mouse and resoldered some suspicious looking joints on the circuit board inside, especially those attaching the microswitches for the mouse buttons. Since then, none of the problems have recurred. I presume that repeated pressure on the switches over time had cracked the solder joints which caused the mouse to behave erratically. You could try this, but dont get the joints too hot or you will damage the switches or other sensitive components. Simon.
