I found that when this was happening to me the problem area was where the wire meets the mouse. By wiggling that (moving the mouse) it would cause it to disconnect and reconnect.
Some claim it could be the firmware for various hardware pieces on your pc IE: motherboard, usb. Depending on how old the mouse is this could be true. Mine, however, is 4 years old and needs to either be repaired or replaced.
Just had the same problem with my copperhead... firstly go to url below to show you how to open up the copperhead (only do this if it's out of warranty!! which is two years if you have your purchase recipt) http://razerblueprints.net/index.php/Copperhead/copperhead-disassembly-guide.html . Once you have got the top off look at the front where the wheel attaches you can pull the wheel out of the circular thing on the left then find some thin paper I used some laser receipt paper (probably gonna wear out but will find something better in meantime) cover the hole with a very small square of whatever thin material you have chosen then push the axle of the wheel back in... this tightens the hole back up allowing the clicking feel to come back and the scroll wheel to work again. Ultimately the problem is wear and tear with the hole for the axle or the shape of the axle end wearing down.
I see this caused a lot of the time by a bad wire within the cord. If you are good with soldering and circuit boards you can replace the cord. But getting a new cord is the fun part, you can usually take it out of another device. Sometimes for a temp fix, you can find where the cord is broken and twist n turn it just right to make it work again, then finding a way to make the cord stay that way. With most breaks in the cord happening right where it meet the mouse, you can sometimes push the cord further into the mouse and get a few more months out of the mouse.
I personally just replace the device when I know it is a cord problem, saves a lot of time, trouble and frustration. I always buy the same model of mouse and it runs around $60+, I use my old devices to repair the newer ones when something goes awry...if permitting.
So my advice is to just buy a new mouse, you can get them for under $10 depending on what you choose to buy.
Gaming mice are not cheap,sell for $30 - 130. The cord on my RAZER DIAMONDBACK mouse went bad, I opened the mouse & repaired the broken wires.You have to unplug cord from inside mouse,the connection plug has very small barbs,so you have to pry the socket open a bit to unplug it.Once the cord is out cut the rubber part on the cord that connects to mouse that reinforces the cord.Cut it off on both side,pull out the remaining bits of wire.You have to enlarge the hole in the rubber grommet to reinsert the cord threw it,a heated wire the size of the cord works well to enlarge the hole.Run cord thew grommet splice wires,solder wires if you have a soldering iron makes the best repair,splice wires offset from each other,so they are not all sliced at same location.Use a good tape to isulate the spliced area on each wire,about 1/2 of tape per splice,Scotch Super 33+ Premium Vinyl Electrical Tape. Once you have taped each wire, tape all the wires together, for better isulation.Reinslall wire harness & test mouse.
Hi, This double-clicking can be due to a worn out micro-switch in your mouse. If you are well -verse with repairing such gadgets, you can go ahead and replace this switch yourself or refer it to a qualified technician
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.
I have something like you've all described with mine occasionally, normally, turning the mouse over and rubbing the laser surround with my finger vigorously is enough to clean off the crud that seems to be causing the problem..
I've never had any software problems or anything with mine..
