Under normal operating conditions, a set of alkaline batteries lasts about
three months. When the cursor movement becomes sluggish and the
communication distance between mouse and receiver becomes shorter,
replace the batteries.
When not using the mouse, set the power switch to OFF. This will make the
batteries last longer.
Connecting the receiver to the computer

first time
Windows starts installation of the standard USB driver. In Windows 98
and Windows 98 SE, a driver installation screen will appear. Complete
the installation according to the prompts. For other operating systems,
the installation will proceed automatically.
Note
Drivers for USB devices must be installed for each connector used. If you connect
the receiver to a different USB connector on your computer, the driver
installation procedure will be repeated, and the same driver will be installed
again.
Enabling communication between the
mouse and receiver
1
Set the mouse power switch to ON.
2
Press the Connect button on the receiver.
The receiver LED lights up green, and the mouse will be
recognized after about 30 seconds.
3
Press the CONNECT button on the mouse.

Using the Wireless Mouse
When you move the mouse, the pointer displayed on your screen
moves in the same direction.
This section describes basic mouse operations and how to use the
wheel button.
Note
The optical mouse may not operate correctly on the following surfaces:
• Transparent surfaces (such as glass)
• Surfaces that reflect light (such as highly polished veneers or mirrors)
• Surfaces with a repetitive pattern, such as screening (like that used for
printing photos in magazines and newspapers)
• Surfaces that are striped or have another distinct, high-contrast pattern
If the mouse pointer does not move smoothly across the screen, make sure you
are not using the mouse on one of the above mentioned surfaces.
z
If necessary, you can adjust the mouse pointer speed in the "Mouse Properties"
dialog box. To display the "Mouse Properties" dialog box, click "Start",
"Settings", "Control Panel", and then double-click "Mouse" (with the Windows
XP operating system, select "Printers and Other Hardware" in the "Control
Panel", then select "Mouse").
Operating distance of the mouse
The mouse can normally be operated within an area having a radius of
about one meter around the receiver. Depending on the usage
environment, sometimes the usable distance may be shorter,
preventing normal operation. In such a case, take the following
measures:
• Ensure that the mouse is not closer than 20 cm to the computer,
display, and other electronic devices.
• Place the receiver closer to the mouse.
• Use a mouse pad.

Precautions
Safety
If any solid object or liquid falls onto the mouse, disconnect it and have
it checked by qualified personnel before continuing its use.
Location
Do not place the mouse in a location where it is:
• On an unstable surface
• In very humid areas or where there is no ventilation
• Subject to excessive dust
• Subject to direct sunlight or extreme heat
• Extremely cold
Operation
If the mouse is brought directly from a cold to a warm location or is
placed in a very damp room, moisture may condense on the inside of
the mouse. If this occurs, the mouse may not work properly.
In this case, wait about 30 minutes for the moisture to evaporate. If the
mouse does not work properly after one hour, consult your nearest
Sony dealer.
Cleaning the outside of the mouse
Clean the mouse with a soft, dry cloth or a soft cloth lightly moistened
with a mild detergent solution. Do not use any type of abrasive pad,
scouring powder, or solvent such as alcohol or benzine.

Troubleshooting
If you experience any of the following difficulties while using the
mouse, use this troubleshooting guide to solve the problem. If a
problem persists, consult your nearest Sony dealer.
Nothing happens when I press a mouse button.
Receiver is not connected properly to the USB port.
c Close all programs, and then reconnect the mouse to your computer.
The operating system is not compatible.
c Use a supported operating system.
The USB port is not available.
c Check the "System Properties" of your computer.
The mouse batteries are exhausted.
c If the power does not come on even when the power switch is set to
ON, replace the batteries. For details, see the section "Preparations".
The mouse and receiver are not communicating.
c Perform steps 1 and 2 of "Enabling communication between the
mouse and receiver" to ensure that proper communication is
possible.
c In some usage environments, the usable distance may be notably
shorter, preventing normal operation. Ensure that the receiver is not
closer than 20 cm to the computer, display, and other electronic
devices.
c If the mouse is too far from the receiver, communication is not
possible. Place the receiver closer to the mouse.
The mouse is being used on an unsuitable surface.
c When used on a mirror, glass, or other shiny surface, or on a
transparent surface or strongly patterned surface, the sensor at the
bottom of the mouse may not be able to correctly detect the mouse
movements. In such cases, use a mouse pad.
The Connect button was pressed, but communication is not possible.
c Check whether batteries are inserted in the mouse. For details, see
the section "Preparations".
c If the power switch on the mouse is set to OFF, communication with
the receiver is not possible. Check the setting of the switch on the
rear of the mouse.
c If the power does not come on when the power switch of the mouse
is set to ON, the batteries may be exhausted. Under normal
operationg conditions, a set of alkaline batteries lasts about three
months. Replace the batteries. For details, see the section
"Preparations".
c Communication between the mouse and receiver may not have been
properly established. If the CONNECT button on the mouse is not
pressed within 30 seconds of pressing the Connect button on the
receiver, the receiver cancels communication. In such a case, perform
the procedure once more to enable communication. For details, see
"Enabling communication between the mouse and receiver".
c If the mouse is too far from the receiver, communication is not
possible. The maximum distance between the mouse and receiver is
about 1 meter. If used on a metal table or if there are obstacles
between the mouse and receiver, the usable distance may be less.
The scrolling features do not work.
The operating system is not compatible.
c Use a supported operating system.
The scrolling features do not work with the program I am using.
c The scrolling features work only with programs that use scroll bars.
c Some programs do not support the scrolling features.
The receiver was connected in power-save mode, and the system has
now returned to normal mode.
c Disconnect the receiver from the USB port, wait a few seconds, and
then connect the receiver again.
The pointer doesn't move when I move the mouse.
c Windows or other software processes may temporarily disable the
mouse. In this case, you may need to wait for the processing to finish
before using the mouse.
c You may find some useful solutions in your computer's operating
manual. Refer to the manual or on-line documentation provided
with your computer.
The mouse batteries are exhausted.
c If the mouse power does not come on even when the power switch is
set to ON, replace the batteries. For details, see the section
"Preparations".
The mouse and receiver are not communicating.
c Perform steps 1 and 2 of "Enabling communication between the
mouse and receiver" to ensure that proper communication is
possible.

possible. Place the receiver closer to the mouse.
The mouse is being used on an unsuitable surface.

The wheel does not work.
c When using the mouse with a computer running a preinstalled
version of the Windows Me operating system, operations with
the wheel button of the mouse may not function properly with
all software.
The mouse does not cause recovery from energy-saving mode, or
recovery takes a long time.
c Press any key or the power button.
c Recovery from an energy-saving mode using the mouse may
take some extra time in computers with Windows 98 or Window
Me preinstalled.
Moving the mouse does not return the computer from the energy-
saving mode or it takes a long time for the computer to return to
normal operation.
c Disconnect the receiver from the USB port, wait a few seconds,
and then connect the receiver again.
The mouse pointer does not move smoothly across the screen.
The optical mouse may not operate correctly on the following
surfaces:
