Using the RF Mouse

Installing the Battery

1 Remove the battery cover from the bottom of the mouse by pressing the battery cover tab and siding it off.

2 Insert the supplied battery, making sure that the positive (+) and negative (-) end of the battery match the polarity indicators inside the battery housing.

3 Slide the battery cover back into position until it “clicks” firmly into place.

The optical sensor, located on the bottom of the mouse, glows red.

WARNINGS: When replacing the battery, if you are using the mouse with the charger base, you must use heavy-duty NiMH recharg eable batteries to avoid possible damage to the mouse and charger.

If you are using the mouse without the charger base, you may use alkaline or other heavy-duty NiMH batteries.

Setting the Radio Frequency Channel

Before you establish a link between the optical mouse and its receiver, you must set the radio frequency channel. To do this, slide the channel switch to A or B on both the mouse and the receiver. For the mouse, the switch is located inside the battery compartment. For the receiver, the switch is located directly opposite the USB connector.

NOTE: The optical mouse and its receiver must be set to the same channel to function properly.

5

Establishing a Communications Link

The optical mouse has 256 identification codes that allow the mouse and its receiver to operate without interference from other radio frequency devices.

To set the identification code and establish a radio link between the mouse and the receiver:

1 Press and release the link button, located on the bottom of the optical mouse.

2 Press and release the link button on the receiver.

The receiver’s status light flashes while it scans the identification codes for the mouse. Once a code is selected, the status light stops flashing.

3 Press and release the screen scroller (middle) button.

You are now ready to use the optical mouse.

NOTE: You must reestablish the communications link every time you change the batteries.

Operating Hints

For optimal 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 storage devices.

• Avoid using the optical 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 optical mouse will enter a suspend mode at the same time your computer does. To wake the mouse, press and release the screen scroller (middle) button.

• If your computer has a metal case that contains aluminum or magnesium, use the optical mouse to the side. The display panel may interfere with the radio frequency signal if you use the mouse directly in front of the computer.

• Never use the optical mouse on a glass or mirrored surface as these surfaces will cause the mouse to fail temporarily.

• To maximize battery life, use the optical mouse on a white, or light colored surface. Dark surfaces cause the mouse’s light emitter diode (LED) light to glow brighter, which causes the battery to discharge more rapidly.

Comfortable Usage

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.

9

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 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

What do I do if the optical mouse does not work?

• Check that the channel setting on both the mouse and the receiver are the same.

• Make sure that the polarity of the battery is correct. The positive (+) and negative (-) ends of the battery must match the positive (+) and negative (-) connections in the battery housing.

• The battery may need recharging. Connect the mouse to the charger base.

• Check that the receiver’s USB connector is firmly attached to the USB port on your computer.

• Verify that the device drivers are installed.

• Make sure you have established a radio link between the

mouse and its receiver. See “Establishing a Communications

Link” on page 6.

When I use the optical mouse, other wireless devices work more slowly or fail temporarily – what should I do?

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.

What do I do if the response time of the optical mouse is slow or the mouse intermittently stops working?

• Increase the distance between the mouse’s receiver and the rest of your computer equipment. Use the USB extension cable if necessary.

12

• 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 optical 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.

I can’t use the optical mouse while another RF mouse is in use

– what should I do?

Change the channel selection (A/B) on both the mouse and its

receiver. If this does not work, reset the identification code. See

“Establishing a Communications Link” on page 6.
