Logitech Mouses

Posted on 2013-05-13
Last Modified: 2013-05-14
i have maybe 6 Logitech receivers that are not in use and at least 4 Logitech mouses and keyboards that dont work.
i could have sworn one of these would fit with one of the receivers.
i was using the software to combine receivers but mixed up the receivers in the process of not using them.

is there a way to reprogram these receivers ?
or do they all have only one device to connect to its entire life.

That's strange.   Batteries?

Do any of your receivers have the Unifying icon on them?


If so you might be able to sync them.

"im thinking ive done work on a computers and gave them back to the owner with the receiver stuck in the back of the machine"

I've done that same thing.

i thought you needed to have the original receiver in order to unify them as pairs

It will work with any unifying receiver as long as you pair it to that receiver using the Unifying Software

i thought the receivers were specically for the orginal mouse or peripheral they originally were shipped with.
