conserve power.

logo will re-illuminate and the mouse will be active.

When the charging cable is connected, a series of coloured lights in the illuminated ‘P’ logo will
indicate different battery levels.

Orange light with constant Ice Blue light = Battery charging but level is above a 20% charge level

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
Penguin (wired version)
•
Make sure your Penguin is firmly plugged into your computer’s USB port

Try using a different USB port. If possible plug it directly into the computer i.e. not through
any monitors/keyboards/hubs etc.

Although your Penguin is plug & play, it is worth making sure your computer is up to date
with the latest drivers/operating software for pointing devices
•
Check that the sensor on the underside of the Penguin isn’t covered and has a clear line of
sight to the surface below. Also check that your Penguin has not been dropped which could
dislodge the laser.
•
Try using the Penguin on a mouse mat / unreflective surface
•
Close your computer down and reboot
Penguin (wireless version).
Note: USB is found inside compartment on Penguin base.

Penguin’s batteries have enough charge and are the correct way round (not needed on
newer rechargeable models)
•
Make sure the ON/OFF switch on the underside of the base is in ‘ON’ position (rechargeable
models only)
•
Make sure your Penguin’s dongle (Micro Receiver) is firmly plugged in to your computers
USB port
