Hello I was looking for a way to open my VX revolution mouse to clean the wheel as it doesnt rotate as freely as it once did, and i came across one of your notes saying that you had the same problem and it didnt need cleaning. Could you please tell me what needs to be done. Thank You
Partial / Potential solution:
I think there are screws holding the mouse together, and that they are located under the 'plastic' pads on the bottom of the mouse. On mine, the pad directly behind where the battery goes (towards the 'tail' of the mouse / palm of hand) popped off easily to reveal a screw that came out easily enough. The other pads are stickier, tho, so for me it's not worth trying to mess with them now. If it gets worse, I'll take them off and see what's to see. If yours is pretty bad, it might be worth it.

Seems that the left mouse button needs to be replaced. If you have an old mouse, you can use it as a source of a spare mouse button, & replace the defective button on your VX Revolution. However, you need to make sure that: 1. The replacement button is identical to the defective one. 2. You have enough skills to solder/desolder electronic components.
Hello. Yes, it is quite simple to remove the battery of a Logitech MX Revolution mouse yet for some reason when going through the Logitech product support website it states that it is not possible. Just remove the 4 teflon pads located on the bottom of the mouse and then remove the four screws located under the pads. Once this is done turn the mouse back upright and remove the top off of the mouse. I would suggest temporarily removing the flex cable that holds the top and bottom of the mouse together. There is a small metal clip that holds the battery in place that must now be removed. NOW FOR THE VERY IMPORTANT PART. There are two different generations of the Logitech MX Revolution mouse which have different batteries. The first Generation uses the L-LY11 battery and the newer generation of the MX Revolution uses the L-LL11 battery. There is no way to tell which battery your mouse uses without first opening up the mouse. Once opened you can easily tell which battery your mouse uses. Here is a link to a site that shows you an example of the L-LY11 battery: MX Revolution L-LY11 Battery Here is a link to a site that shows you an example of the L-LL11 battery: L-LL11 Battery for Logitech MX Revolution Mouse As you can see the L-LY11 battery has wires and a plastic connector and the L-LL11 battery has contacts. You should definitely determine which battery your mouse uses ahead of time to eliminate any frustration caused by ordering the wrong battery ahead of time.
It looks like the rod that connects the wheel to the sensor has lost its traction. The teeth may be worn out. Unfortunately, spare wheels are not sold separately by Logitech and any warranty that you have will be voided if you open up the device.
If your mouse is still under warranty, you may be able to obtain a replacement through an RMA. Click here for RMA details. The VX Revolution has a 3 year warranty.
First try this
Turn the mouse over and find the small
rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it.
This should connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly.
If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the button on
the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or
If that doesn't do it theen try this.
Disconnecting the Mouse Receiver from the
USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When
the program asks you to connect the MouseReceiver to the USB
port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud
