Hello 3dG and members,

Can a clicker on a mouse be replaced, or repaired somehow ?
And if so, how do I do it ?

Yes I know usually you'd buy a new mouse long before the clicker is dead, but my mice actually last less than a year before the clicker is failing, and as you can imagine, buying a new 150 dollar mouse each year is a lot of money in the long run... I have tried to search for high end gaming and professional mice that allows for easy replacing of thoose specific parts, that simply dont have such a great lifetime... But I had no luck so far...

My latest mouse was a logitech performance MX, that I havent yet figured out if I can repair somehow or not ?
Any help or suggestions is much apreciated

You can repair it, but it would take some experience in replacing electronic components such as the micro switch which would be a SPST(Single Pole Single Throw) or a DPST(Double Pole Single Throw) depending on the manufacturer.

Also I would have to note that de-soldering and soldering is not recommended without any prior experience.

I would try and contacting Logitech tech support and see if they can get you a replacement mouse, they are generally good about that sort of thing even if its outside of the warranty they will usually offer replacement or discount for a replacement at their store.

Repairing a mouse isn't viable. Contact Logitech support and they will send you a new one if you are within warranty. I have had to replace a few Logitech products in the past and with mice they don't even ask you to send the faulty one in, they will just ship you a new one.

Thank you guys for the advices and fast response *thumbs up* and a /happyface,

sadly I did already take the mouse appart,
before I noticed that I actually had 2 weeks of warrenty left on it *whoops* lesson learned
could prolly return it and no one can tell I have been inside it but, Imma just go with your advice,
and get myself a brand new logitech mouse yet again, and use my warrenty next year when the clicker dies.

Thanks everyone and have a fantastic weekend
