Marble mouse left click isn't working well

Do I need a whole new mouse? It's a few years old. I don't think it comes apart to clean it, either. thanks to anyone for help. I'm willing to buy a new one if necessary.

Try this first. It worked for me.

1. flip it over
2. take out the four obvious screws
3. poke a hole in the sticker right above the "s" where "Marble Mouse" is written to find the fifth hidden screw
4. take out that hidden screw
5. gently unsnap the top from the bottom
6. clean whatever dust/dirt you find in there
7. put a small piece of tape on the bottom side of the left-click button that's not working (in my experience I'd clicked so many zillion times through the years that the plastic where the button made contact was slightly dented thereby making it to where my left-click button wouldn't work very well
8. put it all back together
9. pat yourself on the back for saving a bunch of money
10. celebrate w/ friends

That is a good mouse!
Mine lasted many years as well.
But everything has an end.
When mechanical parts start time to get a new one.

Double clicking, left button

Hello, if the mouse is double clicking randomly means the mouse button or button soldering are broken, maybe you might want to try opening it up and resoldering the mouse button, if it doesn't work you can use an old mouse button that fits the space and solder that one in the mouse that's having problems, reassemble and see if it works, the good news is that most of the time it does.

The left click doesn't work every time I push it down.

Sounds like the left switch has already gone bad. If it isn't a year old, it should be under warranty. Take it back (along with the receipt) to where you purchased it and ask for a replacement.

When I left click on anythin the mouse almost

Is it an old (as in used a lot) mouse, I had a similar problem a while back and it was down to a worn out micro-switch, it would still work but because something inside had work out it would always double tap.

It may not be the answer to your problem, but at least if you can test another mouse it will rule out any mouse control panel issues

Left mouse click quit working


If this a laptop touchpad mouse button, I've had a similiar problem with a older laptop, the button was not getting touched properly, I had to press it harder a few times and it eventually started to work again.

There maybe something in between case and the button that is perventing it from being pressed completely.

If this doesn't help, try using a external usb mouse for example.
The laptop might need to be taken apart and the touchpad buttons looked at and possibly cleaned or the buttons / whole touchpad replaced to sort out the problem.

Thanks and good luck, let me know if you need further assistance.

Marble mouse problems

I have a problem like this with the marble mouse ... relatively easy workaround for me is if I simply grab the trackball with my fingers, lift it slightly out of its cradle, and put it back down, it starts working again. It would be better if there were some way to prevent it from freezing in the first place.

I had another marble mouse a couple years ago that did not have this problem. Eventually one of its button switches went bad so I had to replace the mouse. This is the replacement.

Mouse left click button does not always make contact.

Hi RPM GUY, I have a couple of these too but what you?re describing is just the button wearing out from lots of use. Since it?s less than one year old it probably still under warranty, taking it apart would definitely void it. I would contact Microsoft hardware support and try for a warranty replacement. If you want to go ahead anyway remove the 2x batteries and you will see a screw inbetween. Remove it and the bottom half will come appart. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate the post.
