Re: Razer Diamondback

Under the big plastic slide of the mouse theres a screw you just need to take out .. then gently pop it open the bottom end and pull it back.. DON"T TRY TO PULL IT OPEN COMPLETELY.. there is a little hinge that holds the top 2 buttons in place. just pry open the lower end and gently pull back.

Re: Razer Diamondback

Define the "big plastic slides". Im looking for screws on my fakie fakie chinese hyundai mouse. There are no screws under the plastic padding and it seems the only way is to rip apart some of the plastic.

My Razer mouse is sticking all over the place, making it impossible to play.

assuming it is dirty inside . look on the bottom of the mouse for a screw , unscrew it and take apart mouse remove ball and see if there is dirt or debris built up on any of the three rollers , if so remove with fingernail or wet rag . put back together . if this does not fix it go to start panel in windows and then control panel click on mouse then see if all the settings are correct usually pointer options tab at the top is where to start .

I can't hold on with left mouse button.Please help.

I had the same problem. I took it apart and cleaned it. The screw is located at the rear of the mouse in the center. It is underneath the bar code. It is a triangle screw but I was able to get it apart using a standard jewelers screwdriver. I cleaned the top and dusted out the inside. Now it works fine.

The scroll wheel began malfunctioning a little at a time and now will not work at all. Will an internal cleaning help? How do I disassemble it?


yes, u need internal cleaning. So, see the ball side of the mouse and there the arrows or some sign willl show you how to move in rotation to clean it...mostly it is anticlockwise.. 
open it and then put the ball out..clean the ball too.
When u clean the ball then see inside the ball area and you will find the two nos. of roller inside. one is responsible for horizental movement and the 2nd one is for vertical movement. the will probably have dust rapped around them.. clean it carefully because if you push hard it will be the result of broken clips that hold them.
if you can remove the screw backside will allow you perfect cleaning but keep in mind there are two connecting clips infront of the click buttons that hold the front part of mouse...
do it carefully,

hope it will fix the issue so dont forget to rate it...

My cord on my razer copperhead mouse is broken

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.

Razer copperhead problem

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..

Could there be some dust inside the laser eye or something else. On what surface are you using it. Try it on a blank piece of paper
