wireless mouse conked out must replace with new one...question???

My 3 year old logitech wireless mouse conked out on me today. No laser light, blinking green on off switch and red battery light stays on. The mouse is part No 810-000769. I have tried all the suggested remedies offered by Logitech support with no success.



The wireless mouse was bundled with their S520 wireless keyboard purchased 3 years ago.



If I purchase another wireless mouse will it work with the Logitech S520 keyboard or will I have to replace that and the receiver dongle too? Are all wireless keyboard and mouse devices interchangeable??

Thanks for your help!

You will probably end up needing 2 recievers the exisiting one for your keyboard and the new one that comes with the mouse.

These tend to auto-pair and are not usually interchangeable.

Hi provlima,

It is correctly suggested by Sub Styler that you would end up using two wireless receivers one for the mouse and another for the keyboard.

If you want to save the hassle of using two USB receivers then you should purchase a mouse and keyboard kit again.

Also, if you are less on USB ports on the system then purchase a USB dongle where you can connect multiple USB receivers or any other device.

It is completely up-to you personally I would prefer different mouse and keyboard as if any of them fails in future you can replace it separately rather than replacing the complete kit.

Hope it helps.

This is the very reason why I stick with Bluetooth mice and keyboards. Since Bluetooth is a published standard, any Bluetooth device should work with any Bluetooth receiver. Bluetooth also has greater range and more versatility but most of all it's that one Bluetooth device is compatible with another, unlike proprietary wireless devices.

I have Bluetooth mice, keyboards, speakers, headsets, GPS modules, printer, etc... and they all work with a single Bluetooth receiver. Seems like a no brainer to me!

Since BT, IMO, is superior to wireless I don't understand why it isn't more popular. When I shop for mice, for instance, there's a large selection of cabled and wireless mice but usually only 1 or 2 BT mice to choose from. I think it's because BT costs a bit more.

The keyboard you have will not be compatible with any other mice so you will need to use a different receiver when you get your new mouse. However, many of Logitech's mice and keyboards use what's called a Unifying Receiver. The Unifying Receivers can be paired up with up to six compatible devices, such as keyboards and keyboards, at the same time. I have two mice and a keyboard "paired" to one Unifying Receiver. I also have the Unifying Receiver plugged into my notebook paired to two mice. I would suggest getting a Logitech replacement mouse that uses a Unifying Receiver and just use both receivers. If you don't have enough USB ports free for two receivers, get a Logitech keyboard that also uses a Unifying Receiver and pair both devices to one of the Receivers.

Logitech devices that are compatible with their Unifying Receivers are easier to find than devices that use Bluetooth.
