Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of a Rocketfish optical
notebook mouse! Your Rocketfish mouse is sensitive to any
movement, making it easy for you to control the on-screen
pointer. It’s also easy to set up, and its self-storing USB
receiver makes it convenient for travel anywhere. This
ergonomically designed mouse uses a radio frequency (RF)
link that lets you to use the mouse anywhere within range of
its receiver. No line-of-sight is required between the mouse
and its receiver.
In addition to this User Guide, this package contains:
• Wireless optical mouse
• USB RF receiver
• 2 AAA batteries
• Carrying pouch

Connecting the receiver to the computer
To connect the mouse receiver to the computer:
• Plug the USB receiver into an available USB port on your
computer. The receiver’s LED turns red, and your
computer identifies the receiver and begins installing the
default driver.
Important: If a message or dialog box appears on the
screen, follow the on-screen prompts to complete the driver
installation.

Linking the mouse and receiver
The mouse has 256 identification codes that allow the
mouse and its receiver to operate without interference from
other RF devices. After your computer detects the USB
receiver and the default driver is installed, you must make a
communications link between the mouse and its receiver
before you can use the mouse.
To make a communications link:
1 Press and release the link button on the receiver. The
receiver’s status light blinks green when the receiver is
activated.

2 Press and release the link button on the bottom of the
mouse. The two devices establish their communication
link. The receiver’s status light first blinks green, then
turns red when the connection is made.

Operating tips
For best performance and RF reception:
• Place the receiver at least 8 inches (20 cm) away from all
electrical devices, such as your monitor, speakers, or
external drives. If necessary, use the extension cable to
move the receiver away from the computer (if your
computer is too close to other electrical devices). Plug
the receiver into an extension cable (USB A male to
USB A female, not included), and plug the extension
cable into the computer.
• Avoid using the mouse on a metal surface. Metals such
as iron, aluminum, or copper shield the radio frequency
transmission and may slow down the mouse’s response
time or cause the mouse to fail temporarily.
• The mouse enters a Sleep mode whenever your
computer does. To activate the mouse, just move or click
the mouse.
• If your computer has a metal case that contains
aluminum or magnesium, use the mouse to the side,
because the display may interfere with the radio
frequency signal if you use the mouse directly in front of
the computer.
• Don’t use the mouse on a glass, mirror, or other highly
reflective surface, because the mouse doesn’t work well
on those types of surfaces.
• To increase battery life, use the mouse on a white or
light-colored surface. Dark surfaces cause the mouse’s
light emitter diode (LED) to glow brighter, which causes
the battery to discharge more rapidly.
Conserving power
When the mouse batteries are running low on power, the
LED light on the receiver turns red and blinks.

To use your mouse’s Sleep mode:
1 Do not use your mouse for five minutes. After five
minutes of inactivity, the mouse automatically enters
Sleep mode to conserve battery power.
2 To wake the mouse, just move the mouse or click a
mouse button.
To conserve battery power:
1 Slide the receiver lock away from the receiver holder,
then pull the holder out until the LED on the bottom of
the mouse turns off.
2 Insert the receiver into the receiver holder for convenient
storage while travelling, and to prevent the holder from
being pressed back into the mouse.

Ergonomic guidelines
Research suggests that physical discomfort and injury to
nerves, tendons, and muscles may be related to repetitive
motion, an improperly set up work area, incorrect body
posture, and poor work habits.
To reduce the risk of injury, follow these precautions:
• Stand, stretch, and move around several times every
hour.
• Switch hands while performing tasks. Use shortcut keys
on the keyboard to avoid repetitive or awkward mouse
movements.
• Relax your shoulders and keep your elbows at your sides.
• Adjust the keyboard’s position so that you don’t have to
stretch to reach it.
• Adjust your position so that you don’t have to bend your
wrists to type. Avoid placing your wrists on a sharp edge.
• If you feel discomfort or numbness in your hands, wrists,
arms, shoulders, neck, or back while typing, consult a
qualified medical professional.
Troubleshooting
Your mouse doesn’t work
• Make sure that the polarity of the batteries is correct. The
positive (+) and negative (-) ends of each battery must
match the positive (+) and negative (-) connections in
the battery compartment.
• Make sure that the receiver’s USB plug is firmly
connected to the USB port on your computer.
• Make sure that the appropriate device drivers are
installed.
• Make sure that you have made a radio link between the
mouse and its receiver.

When you use the mouse, other wireless
devices work more slowly or fail temporarily.
• The mouse may cause interference with any cordless,
radio-based device that operates at 27 MHz, such as a
telephone, baby monitor, or toy. To reduce interference,
move the mouse’s receiver and the base unit of the
affected device as far away from each other as possible.
The response time of the mouse is slow or the
mouse intermittently stops working
• Increase the distance between the mouse’s receiver and
the rest of your computer equipment.
• Increase the distance between the mouse’s receiver and
the base units of other wireless devices.
• Turn off any wireless devices and their base units that are
near the mouse’s receiver.
• If you are using the mouse on a metal surface, move it
and the receiver to a non-metal surface. Metals such as
iron, aluminum, or copper shield the radio frequency
transmission and may slow down the mouse’s response
time or cause the mouse to fail temporarily.
You can’t use the mouse while another RF
mouse is in use
• Reset the identification code by re-linking the receiver
and mouse. For instructions, see “Connecting the
receiver to the computer” on page 5.
