Logitech mx1000 Not charging.

HI I recently bought a logitech mouse mx1000. When I put it to charge, the leds should start to imcremtingly go 1 green, then 2 green, and so on. But instead. After to sequences of green, it starts to blink red. Is there a way to reset or self test the mouse.

    I have an MX Laser (basically the same thing).
    Same problem. It worked for maybe six months.
    Now it's not charging anymore....

    The charger is plugged in but when I set the mouse on it to be recharged the green lights shut off and it just sits there. I can't tell if it is recharging or not.

    When I place the mouse on the charger, lower light will blink a couple times, then just go out. System Tray always indicates Battery Low for mouse. Have had it on the charger for two days now.

    I called 6 months ago. They said they were sending a replacement, which I never received. When I charge my mouse a few green lights flash then it goes to red. I have tried every that was recommended. I have been putting up with charging twice a day.

    This is a really good mouse. I have had it 3 years no problems until it stopped charging. I found the website that shows how to replace the batter -

    And I bought a battery on ebay and replaced it. It worked great and already had charge. Then I put it in the cradle to charge and it did not charge - no lights. It is the charger not the battery. And nothing I can find to do about that.

    Luckily my office has a similar (bluetooth version) mouse so I can charge it there. Just wish I had checked before replacing the battery.

    Hi, My Logitech does the same, it worked well for a couple of months and recently started acting up. It goes on charge, but after a while the bottom LED start flashing red. I found that the unit can be charged if you leave it on the charger for short periods at a time.

I had the same problem with the mouse MX1000 not charging when it is on its charger.
Then, I realized that I forgot to plug the adapter for the charger - this charger is not taking its power from the USB port but from an external charger!
Once I plugged the charger, the mouse recharged without any problem.
I hope this helps.
This mouse is really great, once this question of recharge is solved.

I had a similar issue where the mouse would not charge unless it was oriented just right in the charger. I found that cleaning the contacts with fine grit sandpaper did the job.

I had the same problem. I solved the issue by cleaning the metal contacts. Try cleaning it with alcohol!

Mine was solved as simply as cleaning the mouse "feet" the little pads underneath the mouse. The slightest build up seemed to stop the contacts between the mouse and recharger from coming together and allowing the mouse to recharge. Two years old and still running strong.

Ok, Logitech maybe does not suck that much...

Two times have the mouse stopped the lights does not show either red or green. Both times this has happend after the mouse has discharged completly.

Solution the first time was to reset the mouse and control station, and then it continued to work.

Solution the second time was to replace the charger wich I found was broken after trying another charger.

Logitech replaced the charger on the warranty.

Thank you Logitech!

My thoughts on the battery lights going red when it tries to charge is that the battery is somehow in wrong.. or grounding to itself.. or theres some internal circuitry problem. The only option with hope of fixing is if it's a battery issue... here was my solution to that

as for setting the mouse on the charger and the lights not being on.. the only time I have seen that occur is when the mouse's on/off switch is set to off...

unfortunately a lot of these things I don't know how to make up from down about them unless the object is in my hands

It has stopped working; I can see the cursor on the screen but there's no response. I have rebooted, but it has made no difference.

I have the same problem. It worked fine for over 7 years now. Yesterday I put it into the charging device after I switched off the Mouse. Started to charge. In the moring I took it off and slide the Off button to On. The battery indicator shows full. Windows 7 recognize it but no mouse movement. I tryied 2 different computers (both with XP) and the mouse is recognized but not working. I tryied to look into the laser lens but no red light there.... I also tryied to put it into charghing the Red Status Lid for 1 second and after it goes all green.

What to do???

Logitech MX1000 Laser Cordless Mouse, I replaced the li-ion battery with a NiMh AAA battery pack, soldered in the board that was on the old battery and used it for a week before the battery pack needed...

Li-Ion battery and NiMh battery have completely different charging requirements! Li-Ion battery has much stricter charging requirement and the regulator is normally design to trickle charge at 0.1 Current rating @ 4.2V and then completely shut down.
WARNING: if you use a Ni-Mh charger on a Li-Ion battery, then it will erupt and even explode and catch fire!
Bottom line is that the rescued Li-ion regulator is not designed for your Ni-Mh pack and you will never get a full charge with it and you will need a completely different regulator board: you are better off putting in a suitably sized Li-Ion battery with inbuilt regulator but with higher current rating if possible.
Hope it helps! Let me know how you go.

Replacement USB charging cradle for Logitech Mouse

It sounds like you are talking about a wireless unit, and I am going to assume that it has stopped charging.....Try this first before you purchase a new cradle for it....Take a pencil eraser and clean the terminal prongs on the cradle, just as if you were erasing on paper, then do the same to the terminal plates on the mouse....

I think my mouse battery might be dying :(

check the connections at the battery you might have to bend the silver tab closer to the battery or stick a little aluminum foil to the battery as you put it in

Strange, I just left logitech page for MX 1000 Laser Cordless Mouse. All they sell is the AC Adapter. Thought that was odd.
Their not selling replacement batterys, just the AC adapter.
Click this link:

If you scroll down to the bottom of the page & look to the right there is a toll free No# you can call.
Still find it strange that logitech sells the AC adapter & not the battery. Make you think your battery is good & the adapter is bad.

Good Luck & kind Regards.
& please vote.

Laser Mouse MX 1000 By logitech

The following is what I ended up doingbf9ae52.jpg

Pretty much I cannibalized a pack of battery charging adapter plates, soldered the three wires to them, trimmed & bent them a little.. and then epoxied them down to the battery hold-down in their appropriate places. A little trimming was done on the plastic so the contacts could reach in far enough without obstruction.
After having the mouse sit around useless without a working battery in it.. for months, which definitely irritated me... I looked up 3.7V li-ion batteries and came across the "klic-5001 battery" (google it) and ordered two. The first one I destroyed trying to solder the wires directly to the battery contacts.. which just ruined all the internal li-ion battery components(i.e. DO NOT TRY DOING THAT)... the second battery, which I never tampered with whatsoever, is connected to the mouse via the contacts I described above. The klic-5001 batteries by the way do fit very well in the hold-down meant for the original battery.
End result: one, exceptionally well working MX1000 mouse which I can replace the rechargeable battery inside anytime it begins to get to aged and not working so well... ^_^ It charges as normal and the battery monitoring works like nothing ever changed.
