    Mouse suddenly stopped working properly. Light on bottom is lit
    and 'connect' button depressed. It is hit or miss - sometimes it will move, sometimes not, and the left click does not always connect.

My mouse would not work (no light) and I fixed the problem be depressing the little tab located on the bottom of the mouse. On the inside left side of the bottom of the mouse where the USB connector rests is a thin tab that turns off the mouse when the USB connector is in place. Try depressing this a few times. My tab had a tendency to stick.

Dear friend,
I think that you are right, please check the manufacturing date of the mouse if one year has been passed that means it is ture.please also try to check your mouse after changing all the batteries of your wireless mouse.
thanks.

The red laser pointer underneath the mouse isn't coming on? put new batteries in and the receiver is showing the green light once plugged into my laptop.


I doubt the problem is the battery. I have this same mouse and it has worked beautifully for two years now EXCEPT for one problem: most of the time, the mouse does not turn on when the receiver is removed from the receptacle on the bottom of the mouse. There is a tiny little switch built into that receptacle, along the side wall of the receptacle not far from the light. I have to wiggle this little switch (gently!) by hand a few times until the light comes on. From that point, the mouse will work fine until the receiver is placed back in the receptacle.

I just dropped my mouse by accident and it doesn't work now. How do I fix this?


open up the door to make sure the batteries are okay, reseat the batteries into the slots to make sure the batteries are making proper contact.

If that doesn't work, then try new batteries just to be sure the batteries aren't the issue.

If it still doesn't work then leave the new batteries in and the usb adapter that comes with that mouse, hook it back up to the usb slot on the laptop and see if windows recognizes the mouse. If no messages come up then go into the device manager and see if the mouse shows up in there.

It will show up as either the type of mouse you have or a yellow question mark which would mean you need to reinstall the software for the mouse.

if nothing shows up in the device manager for the mouse then that means the mouse is bad and would need to be replaced.

Wireless Mobile Mouse 3000 not working


I suggest you do the following. After having synchronized both connecting buttons in mouse and receiver, take off battery and next look for a tiny thin button that protrudes from one of the sides where the receiver is placed in mouse, hold it depressed and put back a new and fresh battery releasing simultaneously this button. Mouse would work correctly. Good luck!!! Chawah.

My microsoft model no 3000 wireless notebook is not working.


I suggest to put a new battery in it's compartment and simultaneously to press down and release the small button that protrudes where the receiver is placed at the bottom of mouse. Prior to this procedure the receiver has to be installed in the USB port. Both actions are to be performed at the same time. Cursor will start moving again.
Good luck!!!
Chawah.

MS wireless notebook mouse 3000 not working?


A friend of mine brought me this problem with exactly the same problem. here is what I found. The small notch in usb device socket under the mouse was malfunctioning. If you press this notch you will find the mouse red light blink. If you further try pressing this notch at some point the mouse red light comes on constantly. Thats it, hold it there and try to connect first by pressing the usb device connect switch and then the mouse connect switch. The moment the connection is made the usb device stops blinking and the red light on the mouse starts blinking. Wow, it works now. Some one might just open the mouse and fix this microswtich for a permanent solution.
