Re: How do you change the batteries on a HP x4000 Wireless Mouse (Ruby Red) with Laser Sensor

Hi,

 

I actually downloaded TWO pdf files from the following links and none of them help.

 

   http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DocumentIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&contentType=Support...

 

Document c03088537.pdf is a very interesting one. You must know Chinese with your imagination to understand it. Finally, you can see the plastic cover from the following link and you can use 2 new AA batteries to replace them:

Hi, I have this mouse, and the top comes off.  Just pick it up and put your fingernail under the 'pointed' end of the top of the mouse...  Then just pull up, this opens the mouse for batteries or storage of the wireless dongle (USB end).

 

I am running this on a Linux (Debian Distrabution) and it was way too fast for me.  I found a utility to modify the input interrogation to work more smoothly.  Unfortunately, HP does not document things such as "update frequency" which is used to compute the speed of the moving moused item or cursor.  Hope this isn't too much information...

 

Hope this helps...

If you have any way to query HP about this stuff, I wish they would make the technical details of these mice accessable.  I run Linux and it way too fast.  I found a fix, but the math to compute the proper values are not availble.  Items such as the "update frequency", "Device Accel Profile" and others are needed, but I cannot locate or know whom to contact to get this information...

 

Thanks for whatever you can do...

after you pop the top of the mouse, there is no wiggle room to remove the AA batteries. So you're screwed! Throw it away and buy a Logitech.  Oh! wait! There is a funny clamp that isn't mentioned in the hp instructions. You push down the 2 tabs at the back of the batteries, pull the clamp out then you can extract the 2 bats that died after 2 months of use.
