Question about Dell Wireless Keyboard Optical Mouse w0147

Mouse stopped working

My wireless optical mouse has been working fine for over a year. Now it has developed a problem I can't seem to solve. The mouse's LED will not turn on when you move the mouse. I can press the green code change key on the bottom of the mouse and it works for about 20 seconds until the LED goes out. It won't come on when you move the mouse.

    I have had a new lap top for 3 months and recently tried to use the wireless mouse. Nothing happens! The device is plugged into a port and glows yellow. the battery in the mouse tests "strong". There is no light glowing anywhere from the mouse and no activity occurs when I try to use it.

I had the same problem. I find that a multi colored mouse pad seems to solve the problem. Actually the best ive found is a wood grain or striped mouse pad.

Usually if it's under warranty take it to the computer shop where you bought it.

My mouse keeps on skipping clicks, I don't know why. The wireless connection seems to be in order and everything else seems fine.


Did you try changing the batteries? If so, try unplugging the mouse receiver and plugging it back in. If that doesn't do anything, how long have you used the mouse? My mouse skips clicks because of my normal use over the years. Might just be the wear and tear to the little clicker button, but try changing batteries.

MS Mouse 3000 won't work


Take it back to the computer store, my thinking is the board inside of the mouse is bad especially since one of the symptoms was the LED getting really bright. Bring it back and get another one.

Yes, this is a result of the wireless mouse. If that mouse moves a hair, it could cause your computer to wake up. I recommend you placing the mouse in a more sturdy location between uses, or simply turn off the transmitter/receiver that controls the wireless keyboard/mouse. Sometimes a better mouse pad is all you need to reduce glare or to provide a surface with more friction to better prevent small bumps from moving the mouse round.

alright The Optical Mouse works on the "reflection" principle.
If it is only working on the T-shirt,the T-shirt Must allow it to read the Light Reflection with more details compared to the other shiny or smoother surfaces.
so,make sure you use some surface close to the T-shirt's.
and as you have been use that mouse directly on the deck surface, the little LED must have goten Dusted or the plastic arround the LED(light).
Hope that helps...
If the Mouse is in warranty **** any replacement if possible underwarranty.

Hi
there is a reconnect button on the receaver I beleave you need to press the reconnect button on the receaver first then the one on the mouse to reconnect. Also make sure you have charged and working battery in place.

This seems to be a old problem and if you don\t need assistance in solving it. It would be great if you would share to the world how you fixed your problem so other users can benefit from your experience. 


Thank you,

Wireless mouse quits working after a few seconds


Did you replace the batteries? This sounds like it may be the problem. A year is a lomg time for batteries depending on how often you use the computer.
After changing the batteries, you may have to do this:
Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch.
Hope this helps you. Bud
