    At least I know that I am not imaging the problems I have. Maybe it is time for me to get a new mouse since I can change batteries and that is it. No soldering for me!

Hi, I have had the same problem with a Logitech Cordless Desktop setup. The mouse and keyboard had been used in an office environment for about two years, then the mouse would double click unexpectedly, would not hold items when trying to drag them and the right click would sometimes fail to work ...then sometimes it would work perfectly. I tried all the other suggested cures such as cleaning out the inside of the mouse, new batteries and reinstalling the driver which did not prove to be effective. A good clean improved things for a couple of days but the symptoms returned. At this point, I dismantled the mouse and resoldered some suspicious looking joints on the circuit board inside, especially those attaching the microswitches for the mouse buttons. Since then, none of the problems have recurred. I presume that repeated pressure on the switches over time had cracked the solder joints which caused the mouse to behave erratically. You could try this, but dont get the joints too hot or you will damage the switches or other sensitive components. Simon.

    This may be a bit late, but most mouses (mice?) are held together with a couple of screws. My Logitech Cordless Desktop mouse is held together by two phillips head screws - one on each side of the battery compartment - it then has a couple of indents at the front that locates the top and bottom sections of the mouse body. Take out the screws and the mouse comes apart easily. I have seen some others that have screws in the bottom under the little pads that the mouse slides on. Check in the battery compartment first before you start prizing off the pads. Also watch out for the little spring clips that hold the scroll wheel in place. These have a tendency to fly out when the mouse is opened up. If you lose these, you'll be up for a new mouse.

    Incidently, my mouse started playing up again recently, so I took it apart and de-soldered the left click switch, made sure that the switch seated nicely against the circuit board and re-soldered it. The switch was not firmly against the circuit board after my first repair as I pretty much just reheated the joints then, so after a bit of use (and it gets heavy use being used at my desk for work every day) one of the joints must have cracked due to movement of the switch. It works perfectly now after doing the job properly. Simon.

    After re-soldering a few joints twice, the problem recurred yet again after a couple of months, but this time, the problems were not as severe as this first time. How frustrating! I can't get used to a corded mouse on my desk after using the cordless one for a while, so apart it comes again, but there was no obvious signs of bad joints or other damage. The next thing I did was take the cover off the left click micro switch just in case that was the problem ...and it was. The thin metal spring contact inside had split at the end where the mouse button presses on it. It really needs a new switch which should be available from most electronic parts stores, but as I am a cheapskate and I wanted to use the mouse straight away, I soldered the split back together. I don't expect this fix to last too long, but it did fix the problems I was having with the mouse double clicking unexpectedly and dropping dragged items without warning. The switches are hard to take apart and fiddly to get back together, but not impossible provided you remember which way the spring contact came out. The best fix would be to remove the micro switch and replace it with a new one like the one here -

    Get one without the actuator bar or remove it from the switch, assuming that your mouse does not need it. Check that the new part is the same orientation as the old one and that the buttons etc line up OK with the mouse body/buttons.

Mouse sometimes double clicks so that it opens 2 things at a time, what is causing that. It also seems to be sticking I have to press it a couple of times to get it to click

You need to go into the control panel and choose the mouse icon.
From there you can set the double-click speed. They give you a little box to click to calibrate the click speed.

Wireless Optic Logitech mouse performace

I had the exact same problem with my original Logitech wireless mouse that came with a wireless keyboard. I eventually figured that the button component inside the mouse wasn't making consistent contact causing unintended double clicking or dropping while dragging. I fixed it by doing some soldering to switch the left mouse button with the right mouse button, since I didn't have to use double clicking or dragging with the right mouse button. It worked pretty well for several months until the switched left button started showing the same problem again. Now my newer Logitech mouse (it's more expensive Nano wireless mouse) is having the same problem after about 1 year using it. I think there's a serious durability problem with the button component that Logitech is putting on their mice. I may do the same trick again on this mouse, but now I don't consider Logitech as a good mouse manufacturer anymore. They used to make good quality hardwares but I guess they aren't that good anymore with all those cheap Chinese suppliers for their parts. :(

Check the CCORNELL posting for the solution. Your mouse is double clicking when it should be only single clicking.

Mouse doesn't turn on

This wireless mouse should have a transmitter that is plugged into the computer. Try replugging that in, and if there is a connect button on it, try pressing that as well.
