[Fix] DeathAdder 3.5G Failing / intermittent left click button

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
as the title shows, and my warranty gone lapsed and i'm on my own to deal with it frown.gif

failing clicks really sucks to imagine, i searched how to 'dissect' this mice and see if ican find anything inside to fix that annoying issue. but my presumption was there might be something wrong with the button or anything that was hitting the switch to make it's function, worn or something like that.
and good that i found at youtube how to open this thing and off i go:

( images are not that clear cause later i found out that my point and shoot cam's ISO had been messed doh.gif )

here i carefully detached the 2 OEM teflon skates so that i can re-use them after, i cut that hole just above the lower skate to access the third screw:

opened, and found nothing wrong with the mechanical s hitting the actual switch as i expected. just a few specs of dusts presented.

DSC00514.jpg

what i did was; gave those micro crevices at those switches some hard blows of air ( i dont have the compressed air in can at hand so my mouth did the job somehow tongue.gif )

DSC00515.jpg

assembled it all back and great that my teflon skates got that nice stick still, but i will definitely get a new set of those soon.
now, what happened after that dissection and blowing those switches?
hah! left clicking now as it was new again, response gone back ! wheee.gif

i've seen some complaints around regarding with the double clicking issues and i guess 'specs of dirt/dusts' might be causing them either, and it's not that hard to do that cleaning if your warranties had lapsed.... just be careful dealing with hte internals cause they seems that fragile wink.gif

You might want to rename this thread to say something like "How to fix DeathAdder's intermittent left click problem". Otherwise, it looks like you're just asking for help with the problem.

I'm looking around trying to find out how to open my deathadder properly. However, is there a way I can open it enough just to take the rubber cover off for cleaning? I want to get that dirt out of there.

You can do that on pretty much any mice, or when you get bored and decide to paint your aging MX518 to get rid of the fading factory paint job. thumb.gif
