Changing the battery in a mickey mouse pocket watch

The first answer is a canned answer. Seen it before. Examine the edge of the pocket watch. Start at the stem and look for a slight gap where the back cover meets the case. It is usually at the stem side or hinge side. Once located take a strong sharp knife and carefully pry up the back cover. It should remove fairly easily. I have about 12 pocket watches and they all work the same way. Once open there may be a small screw or two holding the battery in place. You will need a precision screw driver set or a small screw driver for glasses.

The screws to open your mouse are hidden under the glide pads on the bottom of your mouse. remove the glide pads carefully and you'll see the screws. put the glide pads on with a non-permanent adhesive (like contact cement).

Pull off the 2 largers slide plate stickers on the bottom. you will find 2 screws on the nose end and one on the bottom end of the mouse.. the 4th screw is located under the sticker in the battery tray lining. remove this sticker and remove the 4th screw. now you can separate the 2 halves but be careful for the ribbon cable connecting the 2.

I have a Microsoft Laser mouse 5000. The wheel is dirty and sticks. How to I get the mouse apart to clean it?

I have a similar problem but it was not because the wheel was dirty. The vinyl ring on the wheel for some reason becomes abraded after a few months and expands, slowing the wheel down.

I've opened mine up to clean it. It was tricky, and it didn't improve the wheel much.

If you are comfortable with prying apart plastic cases that might snap if you use too much force, here's how to do it.

1. You'll need a small Torx head screw driver. I have a multi-tool called a Teeny Turner made by Picquic. It has multiple philips and torx heads, great for computer parts. (Note: the heads are magnetized, and usually this is a big 'no-no' for computers, so take care to de-magnetize the heads or be cautious about using it on motherboards, etc.)

2. Open the battery compartment gently with your fingernail and remove batteries. There should be a small torx head screw in the battery tray. Remove the screw and gently pull up on the bottom part of the mouse. Now, gently again, pull the bottom part down while pushing it forward. If it doesn't come off easily, stop and examine the bottom part so that you know how the parts are attached. It's at this point where if you aren't careful enough you can break the mouse.

3. If you've gotten the bottom off of the mouse you will be able to get at the mouse wheel. You might need a pair of needle nose pliers at this point because you will have to gently pry off the white plastic that covers the wheel. Again, examine it in order to understand how it's attached to the base of the wheel assembly. You'll have to hold down the black bottom part under the wheel and pry the white cover upwards. It took me 15 minutes to do it without breaking the assembly.

4. Now for the aggravating part: it's neigh impossible to remove the wheel out of the wheel assembly. It's at this point that I simply used lint-free cotton swaps and a degreaser, and cleaned the wheel by hand.

Like I wrote, cleaning mine only helped a little. If I were to do it again, it'd get a moto-tool and shave off some of the interior of the white plastic cover that surrounds the wheel.

Good luck.

Scroll wheel doesn't work!

There is a design bug in the plastic shaft that connect through the optical encoder. If the wheel just spins and you can't feel "clicks" as it turns, it's very likely that the plastic shaft has worn down enough that it's not actually turning the encoder. The encoder also provides that clicking action; it's a single component. To fix it, take the mouse apart: 4 Phillips #00 screws located under the two black plastic adhesive feet (two under each screw) plus 3 screws (2 #0 Phillips, 1 T6 Torx) located inside the battery cover under the label on the edge with the Microsoft holographic seal. Just peel that edge of the label back to expose the three screws. Torx T6 goes in the middle.

After all 7 screws are removed, the cover removes easily. Locate the mouse wheel and notice the silver optical encoder component through which the mouse wheel shaft enters from the center. If you remove the wheel (gently), you'll see a hexagonal pattern in the shaft. This normally fits the encoder tightly, but wears out over time and use. To repair, take the wheel out and add a drop of superglue to the shaft to that the drop of liquid glue coats only the hexagonal tip all the way around. Do not allow the glue to get on any other part of the shaft or wheel. You don't want to use the glue to actually adhere it to the encoder; you only want to use the glue to add a small amount of thickness to the shaft. After about 30 seconds, use a clean paper towel and gently wick away the remainder and excess glue from the tip of the shaft. This should leave a very thin coat of superglue on the shaft. Allow the shaft to dry completely or use accelerator to speed the curing process. Once dry, attempt to re-insert the wheel into the optical encoder. It should fit tighter now, and still turn freely. If it's too tight, use a sharp knife and GENTLY scrape-off some of the glue on the tip of the gray plastic shaft.

Once you have the wheel shaft reinstalled and you got the clicking action back, you could stop here and re-assemble the mouse. Or, to make the fix last longer, take a toothpick and an extremely small drop of superglue and add it to the outside-facing center of the optical encoder where the shaft is visible. Place the micro drop on the gray shaft, then very carefully work the liquid to the point where it makes contact with ONLY the black collar of the optical encoder. This should glue the gray shaft to the black collar. If you go too far and glue the black collar to the silver casing of the encoder, you may permanently damage the encoder, so be damn careful when applying the glue. After it's dry, the wheel should still turn, click and function normally. Reassemble the mouse and you're done. I've successfully repaired 6 Arc Mice using this method. I used Loctite Low-Bloom Superglue and 712 Accelerator. Good luck.

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
