A little mouse problem ...

Postby YuT666 » Sun Oct 01, 2017 1:50 pm

Had some mouse problems in the past. I use a CPC mouse for my resurrected A3000 and sometimes, there is a small problem (no mouse reaction) and i've to reconnect the mouse. After that ... the mouse works fine like before. I happens not every session and it never depends on the the OS same action. Well, we're no fortune tellers, but what COULD be the reason for this behaviour?

Thanks.

Loose or intermittent connection of the +5v line in the cable or at the socket...

The most common mouse fault on the Archie is a failing IR led, but this would fail on one axis first, and the buttons would still work. If the buttons don't work when your fault happens, then it sounds like power has been lost to the mouse...

Thanks for the info.

When the fault happens, nothing works (no directions, no buttons) and the mouse seems to be fully dead. After a reconnection ... it works without any problems.

So maybe it is still a socket problem. Should check the lines of my resurrected A3000 again. It's sad that i don't have a second mouse for a test, so i can eleminate the errors.
