How to unassemble the G7 Mouse

My kids were playing around the PC and the mouse fell to the ground which resulted in the wheel being knocked to the left and is rubbing against the frame. The future status of my children's 'behinds' depends upon me fixing this or not. For their sake, could you tell me how to open up the G7. I removed a hidden screw under the information sticker but it looks like I would need to pry up at a certain point where it might be fastened by a tab. I tried lightly at a couple of places but am leary to apply any real pressure.Thanks any help.

Re: How to unassemble the G7 Mouse

I found this post while browsing for G7 parts..
The G7 has 5 screws on the bottom, one beneath the serial number/part number sticker (theres a cross **** covering it), one beneath the front sliding pad sticker (gently peel it up, making sure to get the sticky to come with the pad or you're gonna have to glue it back), and two beneath the rear sliding pad sticker.
Once those are off you can gently pry the mouse apart.

I hope anyone else who needs this finds this answer helpful .

Re: How to unassemble the G7 Mouse

Don't spank the kids but try this.The opposite side of the wheel is where the tab most likely will be after the screw is removed.There may be tabs on the sides.BE BRAVE and use a little force with plastic knife wedged at the points mentioned and lift the top cover over the wheel opening-note that at the wheel side there may be two prongs that fit into slots--so lift back side and pull out backwards the top half.Take your time and easy does it.Hope the place where the wheel sits is not broken
You can do it
Hope this helps
Also while inside clean the places the ball makes contact-remove the dirt.--Jay

I have a Logitech wireless mouse DH931435 that has started to give me problems....the scrolling wheel only turns one way with great difficulty and the right and left click are very stiff....what can I do?

It sounds like someone spilled pop or other sticky stuff on the mouse. Its pretty easy to clean. Should be a couple of screws on the bottom. Take them out and carefully remove the plastic pieces. As long as you go slow are remember how it all fits together you will be just fine. There are a couple of small pieces that will fall out (if its an older mouse) so just be cautious. Use some rubbing alcohol and q-tips to clean around where the buttons press down and where the wheel rotates. Then put back together and it should work fine. Remember to do all this with it unplugged.

Good Luck

How can i take this mouse appart? My mouse button seems to be broken and i want to fix it. I bought this mouse and it was very good, and like a month later, i couldn't click the left mouse button anymore...

Logitech generally locates the screws underneath the teflon skid pads. and 1 in the middle of the label, check for the label screw by using your fingernail rubbed against the sticker until you locate it it may be perforated.

The scroll button does not work: it scrolls up, but won't scroll down.

this is very common with these and something I have found myself. The ways to try and clean are to turn the mouse upside down and while it is clicked in, rub in the mouse ball in all directions and you should feel some dirt dislodge.

Alternatively you can wet a lint free cloth and do the same action. There are usually mixed results for this but at the momment this is the only way to at least try and fix it.

Usually rubbing the scroll ball upside down allows the dirt to fall out.

Good luck

(as an alternative small way around this, space bar does scroll down in macs but I know this is not ideal, but what I am stuck with at the mo!!)

Scroll ball not going going down

I had the same problem and checked at the Apple store and was told to rub the scrolling ball with a alcohol prep pad. works wonderful. May have to repeat as needed.

Take a q-tip and wipe the optical lens being careful not to apply pressure against the lens. This may or not help. Worth a try. Bud

Microsoft wireless laser mouse 5000

Assign a keystroke to the mouse, in this instance I assigned 'p' for pan (as per the .pgp file short cuts etc) against the scroll wheel click.

Click the scroll wheel, 'p' comes up on the cad screen, right click to confirm then the pan icon appears, hold the left mouse button and drag at your leisure. Yet to find a fix for Inventor.

Not ideal, but better than nothing at presnt.

Having experienced the same problem with (2) Intellimouse Explorers I analyzed the problem and found a solution after driver updates failed to correct it.

Remove the single screw inside the battery compartment, lift off the rear portion of the mouse top cover, then gently lift up the back end of the remaining shell.

Once you have the inner workings exposed, use a Q-Tip to dab rubbing alcohol on the right click button's micro switch, manually clicking it a couple dozen times to clean the button's inner workings. Do not work about shorting out the mouse, as alcohol is non-conductive, and non-corrosive. It will not harm the electronic circuitry.
It doesn't hurt to do the same for the left click micro switch and the side button switches as well, as long as the mouse is disassembled.

Next use a clean Q-Tip to clean the edges of the top & bottom housing. This is the most likely cause of the right click button failure - there are small particles of debris lodged along the edge where the travel of the right click button is supposed to depress, but cannot.

Next, turn the top cover over and move the catch on the right underside forward and push it gently downward to uncatch the edge of that latching clip. The click on the left underside is a bit more complicated and requires a gentle lifting of the rear pins and moving the left clip more to the left and downward to release it from it's locking position.
Once you have freed the actual button's cover from the rest of the top cover, clean it thoroughly with a Q-Tip swab soaked with rubbing alcohol.

While the works are exposed, check for hair and debris around the scroll wheel as well. The small plastic wheel cover lifts off starting from the read and tipping up and forward.

Carefully reassemble all parts and hte right click function should now be restored. The debris has been removed and the right click now has it's full range of travel restored.
