Cleaning the Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000

I disassembled my Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000.

You need a set of precision screwdrivers to do this.

1. Peel up the teflon pad on the bottom of the mouse with a flat head screwdriver. Leave the other (the one under your fingertips) alone.
2. That will reveal a tiny silver screw. Remove that and then lift the gray upper section up from the back, then pull it free by moving it toward the back. The clips up at the front go in a forward direction, but they are not clipped in. You could just shake it free.
3. There are 4 tiny black screws. 2 at the front and 2 at the back. Remove them.
4. Use a flathead screwdriver to pry the retainer clip from the back of the mouse. It's just held on by a couple of little nubs. Don't break it. Be gentle with this part.
5. Now, the mouse can come apart. You need to pull the bottom of it free at the back and then slide the entire bottom section back. There is a little piece of circuit board that sticks out underneath the right-click area that will get hung up on the upper shell if you try to pull it straight down. This will take a little bit of prying since it's all clipped together, but it will come loose.

That's it. I didn't take any of the inner parts apart after that. I will say that my sticky scroll wheel was scraping against the upper shell. By loosening the two screws at the front, it relieved some pressure and let it run more smoothly. I didn't actually have to take it all apart after step 2 in order to fix that issue.

How can I clean a Logitech MX 1000 Bluetooth?

<p>The Logitech MX 1000 is a laser mouse that connects to your home computer. It is called a laser mouse, it uses an optical beam instead of a rubber ball navigation.

Disconnect the mouse cable from the USB port of your computer and turn the mouse upside down. Note the lens optical beam in the middle of the bottom of the mouse. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Bang on the bottom of the mouse to get rid of dust and dirt that have accumulated near the lens optical beam over time. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Use microfiber cloth (a different substance can damage the lens) and clean the bottom surface of the mouse as well. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Let your nails along the sides of the rubber feet on the bottom of the mouse all the dirt that accumulated in the crevices to remove. <br />

It keeps stalling and shiffting to the right

Sounds like the contacts are dirty. If it has a ball underneath, remove cover and ball then clean the little wheels (contacts) inside.

Mouse cursor shown on desktop but it's not moving.

Remove the four screws from the bottom casing of the track ball. Carefully push the ball from the topside causing the case to come apart. Remove the ball and take an alcohol wipe and gently clean the area where the ball sits and the optical eye that the ball rest looks like a little window that is on the side of the area in which the ball rest in. Put ball back in the recess and put case back together. Replace screws and you should be good to go!

My mouse is sticking

On teh bottom of the mouse is a cirular pad that can be removed to get the ball to come out. WIthin this area you will find several wheels. You will need to clean out any gunk in this area. Also cleaing the mouse ball will work as well.. Use soap and water, preferably a degreasing kind. Assmeble once it is all dry and it should work like new again.

Dell Inspiron 640M E1405 Touchpad Issue

OK, it's not THAT difficult to replace the mouse button. I didn't have the ambition to follow Frumper's suggestion of replacing the little rubber dome with a spring, but there are a number of these available on ebay for under $30. If you're lucky, you'll find the whole top plate with the touchpad and mouse buttons - that saves a little time. But the disassembly/reassembly isn't too bad - there's a pdf of the disassembly process out on the web somewhere; if a google doesn't find it I can send it along. Basically, there are a LOT of little steps, and of course, everything is tiny and fragile. But what it entails is removing all the screws from the bottom of the machine - except for the two under the battery, they're identical. Don't forget the ones under the modem and CPU covers. Remove the 4 screws holding down the heatsink to the cpu. Pop out the hard drive. On the top side, pry off the plate with the power button, GENTLY remove the LCD plug and the 2 backlight connections. Then you can remove the 4 screws that hold the LCD assembly in place - put it somewhere safe! The keyboard will pop right up - be careful with the keyboard connection, the connector hinges, whereas most of the others have a locking key. With the keyboard out of the way, there are a final 4 screws holding the palmrest in place. When they're removed, disconnect the ribbon wires and just pry gently around the edge - starting at the back - and the whole palmrest will come off. If you've got a new palmrest assembly, you're ready to reassemble. If you've just got the mouse buttons, you'll have to remove the (4?) screws holding the front subframe to the palmrest, and a couple more ribbon connectors. Be VERY gentle with all the ribbon wires, and it goes back together very simply. I've done this a few times now; the first one took about 2 hours as I tried real hard not to break anything. Now they go in well under an hour. Like Frumpy said, not for the faint of heart, but not exactly rocket science either. Good luck!

Trackman wheel....ball fell loose, now actin weird

Dust has a tendancy to collect under the ball at the 3 contact tips (you should look under the ball)and it is possible enough dust collected when the ball was removed, that the dust particles became a large dust ball and lodged under the ball making it impossible to move!
Remove the ball and clean the area and replace the ball and it should work fine.

Logitech LX-7 Wireless mouse

2 screws are located in the battery compartment. They are under that flappy plastic thing that helps you get the Batteries out. The remaining 2 screws are under the "glide pads" in the front of the mouse. Fingernails are helpful ;) Don´t hurt yourself. Try not to get any dirt on the adhesive or you won't be able to stick them back for reassembly.
Anyways.... after opening thats where the Fun really starts... Just spilled some Coffee over mine... still working on how to get all the inner workings out
