Fix 3: Check The Wire
Did you check the wire before? Well, if not, then you must check if the mouse wire is not damaged or have any fault. This is because if the wire has some fault, then the Mouse will not be able to function properly as it is not getting the proper power connection.
In most cases, it is noticed that this type of issue generally occurs due to a faulty mouse wire. So, we suggest you inspect the wire thoroughly and if there is any cut or damage appear that you noticed, try to fix it. Then, check if the light again started working or not.

Anyway, once you remove the integrated receiver and the battery from your Mouse, you have to wait for around 5 to 10 minutes before inserting them again on your Mouse. Once done, simply connect your Mouse and check if the issue gets fixed or not. Well, in most cases, it is seen that the issue gets fixed by just doing this. So, why not you give it a try?
Fix 5: Change The USB Port
There are chances that the UBS port of your PC or laptop may not work properly; that’s why the Logitech G502 hero light is not working or has stopped working.
So, to cross-check if the USB port of your system is compatible with the Mouse or not, you can simply plug out the cord from the current port and insert it into another port, then check. Now, if the light again starts working means the port that you are using previously may not work properly or have any faulty. So, in that case, you have to repair your system’s USB port.
Fix 6: Try Using The Mouse In Another System
Now, if even after plugging into another port the light is still not working properly, then just to make sure that if the issue is occurring from your Mouse or system’s side, you should plug the Mouse into another device (if possible).
However, if you don’t have another laptop, contact any of your friends who has a system and check your Mouse. If the list is working on the other PC, this means that your PC’s USB port may have some issues.
