Question - mend, repair, fix

Vtech Mouse?

Has anyone got the wiring connections for a Vtech Kids Laptop mouse.
Unfortuntely the cable has been pulled out from the mouse itself.
The mouse is a silver and blue model. With an RJ45 type plug on the cable end. The pcb in the mouse has 14 possible solder connections so i'm stumped.

I know that this post is a bit old, but could you guide me if it is possible to wire a normal USB/PS2 mouse with the RJ45 for this product?

dereland's wiring sequence works perfectly for the beige and silver mouse that comes with the Vtech Genius XL Challenger game - the kids had ripped the cable right out of the back of the mouse, and once resoldered, it worked perfectly again. Thanks for posting the colour codes above.

Hi, I had a problem with the mouse in two places. The black wire going from the small pcb inside the mouse out was loose - in fact the solder appeared to have degraded and the metal of the lead corroded by something. I also found a similar bad connection at the microswitch under the mouse button - but you have to dismantle the mouse totally and re-solder both connections. The swg of the wire used by vtech is not appropriate for a children's device. Anyway, thanks for leading me in the right direction!
