Mouse won't work

My Kensington 72214 won't work. I lost the manual too. I press the reset buttons on mouse and USB connector, they seem to connect as the light flashes a few seconds and then become steady. But the mouse still doesn't work. Please help.

Describe how to turn on a kensington pocket mouse


The first thing you gotta do is insert two AAA batteries into the mouse. The batteries are supplied -- and in my case at least, they were Energizers -- but the battery cover is very difficult to get off. All I can tell you is -- keep pressing down and forward, like the instructions say, and eventually you'll get it. You just might sweat off several pounds first.

The next issue could have been avoided if the instructions had simply told me what NOT to do. (I subsequently emailed Kensington and WAS told NOT to do it.) To connect the cordless mouse, you plug a tiny receiver into the USB port in lieu of a cord. But you MUST use a port on the computer itself. You CANNOT plug the receiver into a USB hub. If you try to, the receiver's pilot light will light up, but you won't be able to establish a link with the mouse.

With the receiver properly connected, establishing the link involves simply pressing a button on the receiver, then pressing the "connect" button on the mouse. When you press the receiver button, the pilot light starts to blink. When you establish the link, the pilot light glows steadily, but flickers each time you move the mouse. The linking procedure is simple enough, except that the `connect" button is recessed into the bottom of the mouse, and thus needs a pen or some similar object to press it.

After doing all this, I still thought the mouse wasn't working properly, but to be fair, this issue WAS covered in the instructions. This optical mouse is picky about the surfaces you use it on. It turns out that the worst surface to use is a black, reflective one -- which exactly describes my computer table. After putting the mouse on a sheet of white paper, everything was fine. I have to say, though, that this was NOT an issue with the optical mouse I'd been using -- which is probably why I glossed over that part of the instructions.

I successfully installed the driver for the Kensington pocket mouse on my S7 notebook, but I cannot activate it to take over the job of the touch pad.


Wireless Installation

Plug in the receiver to your usb port. Install batteries to mouse.

To establish a wireless connection, press the connect

button on the end of the receiver. Then, press the

connect button on the bottom of the mouse.

Click a button on the mouse to go..

Repeat this procedure when replacing the batteries.

IMPORTANT: This wireless device is similar to an FM radio, by

adjusting the antenna you can get better reception. You may

also want to experiment with different locations and positions

of the receiver.


The little light on the receiver should light up and flash fast untill it sees the mouse signal.

Lost driver for my kensington pocket mouse model


Hi mdriskell,

I'm not sure if this will work for you but go to this site: http://us.kensington.com/html/1466.html#mw611 There is a download of "Kensington MouseWorks™ Software Version 6.11" which might be what you need to make your mouse work. If this does not work, I'll see what else I can find for you. According to the site, it does work with Windows Me. Just out of curiosity, why are you still using WinMe?

Good luck,

Mouse does not move cursor -Kensington mouse and latitude laptop


I was having the same problem on Windows 7 and thought it might be a software issue. But then I found an online manual for the Kensington 72214 and got the solution.
You need to make sure to establish a wireless connection between the mouse and the USB receiver by first pressing the connect button on the end of the USB stick and then pressing the connect button on the bottom of the mouse. It is not simultaneous - do step one then two. This also has to be done any time your replace the batteries.
Here is the manual: http://files.acco.com/KENSINGTON/K72214/K72214-4697.pdf

How do you get the mouse to work?


So I was having the same problem and then I remembered which button to push. I pushed the button on the side of the USB component and then I used a pen and pushed the button on the bottom of the mouse. Then the two linked and it works now. Goodluck - hope this helps you.
