Do laser mice wear out? My logitech wireless laser mouse is about a year old and has become hesitant and occasionally, won't work at all. Later in the day, it works fine. The only thing I've learned from installing new batteries, cleaning USB connectors, cleaning lens on laser, etc. is that it seems to work better on solid color mouse pads than on those with various scenes, or logos on it. Could the laser be getting old. Batteries make no difference to my observation. The other quirky problem is that it malfunctions more readily with my wife using it than when I do--tho once it gets jerky, no hand seems to fix it. Any ideas?
I'm going to buy a new mouse 'cause they don't cost much, but I'm curious why this one is malfunctioning. Thanks.
