Question about Razer Copperhead RZ01-050100-R1M1 Mouse

Left click is broken

My left clicker on my mouse is broken. When I press down on the mouse it either double clicks or doesnt click at all. This is really aggravating all of the time and especially when playing counter-strike. Is there some way i can take it apart to fix it or should I just fork over some cash for a g5

I came across this post while having the same double-click issue with my copperhead. I've found that the cause is the plastic contact under the left click button itself. It wears out and takes on the shape of the microswitch underneath. To fix it all you have to do is follow the instruction for taking the mouse apart posted above and lightly filing the plastic contact flat again. You only want to take the notch out of it.

How to open the mouse (will probably void warranty):

* you need: a crosstip screwdriver, a pointy tool (like a small screwdriver), pincers

- unplug the mouse!
- remove the rear foot of the mouse using the pointy tool and pincers. Do not damage the foot nor touch the sticky side!
- remove the "QA" sticker from the hole where the foot was before, use the pincers for that
- remove the screw in the hole
- lift the rear end of the lid of the mouse about half a centimeter
- pull the lid back to unhook its front

You should now have access to all relevant parts. Avoid touching electric contacts when possible.

To close the mouse:
carefully place the fiber optics back in their groove, hook the lid in at the front, push the lid forward, close the mouse, put the screw back in, put the "QA" sticker back in, place the foot back.

I don't know about the click problem or the glueing of bumpers, I only had to fix my mouse-wheel.

Mouse clicker buttons not working


In Control Panel there is a mouse section, you may have the clicking disabled. if you don't and it still isn't functioning then you have a bad touchpad and it will need to be replaced.

You can also test using a USB mouse to find out if you have clicking disabled.

The left mouse button doesnt work every 4th press...


I believe the switch inside the left mouse button has worn out or broken that made you think after pressing 4 times you were able to trigger the switch and make the mouse to work. You may open your mouse carefully to see if this is the case. If not please follow the below steps as you might need to configure the mouse double click speed.
Open control panel>Double click on the mouse icon>Button Tab>Double Click section>Adjust your double click speed.

Touch pad working fine but left clicker doesnt


Usually the green means that the button is pressed. Check the touch-pad buttons for dust or dirt. If they're clean, then probably need to be repaired.

Left click is broken


Actually, first you should try taking the mouse open and cleaning the sensor clicker thing or whole mouses insides, I had similar problem before, that fixed it for me.

Other option which I haven't tried and am not sure if works, you could try to move one of the side buttons that you don't use sensor to the place of the left mouse button. This I HIGHLY advice against tho since this might break down the mouse totally.

Then again if it comes down to not properly working mouse and you have to get new one versus broken mouse and you have to get new one, you have nothing to lose.

Context menu continually pops up - mostly when left mouse button is clicked sometimes when keyboard is used. Context menu key doesn't work.


I think the mouse setting is set to left handed and the right clicker is the main clicker and the left is the context menu key. Knowing this, you should follow these steps.
1. Go to "Control Panel"
2. Click "Printers and Other Hardware"
3. Click "Mouse"
4. Go to the "Buttons" tab and switch the setting to right handed

Mouse will randomly double click or have to click several times to work


Please check whether there are any buttons on the side of the mouse you may be clicking these at the same time as you are single clicking.

You could also try going into Control Panel --> Mouse
Try Slowing down the double click speed
If that doesn't work try speeding it up

Another problem with a laser mouse is it jumps around the screen randomly if there is a pattern on your mouse mat or desk, or if either are too shiny or even glass as the laser reflects incorrectly on these type of surfaces.
