Spilled on my mouse!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Last night the cat knocked a beer over directly onto my mouse, a fairly new Razer Naga Hex. I got it mopped up pretty quickly and it seemed to work fine for a while. Then the scroll wheel stopped scrolling up and scrolls down instead. So either direction scrolled down. Then this morning I noticed it wasn't glowing anymore but I didn't check to see if it still worked because I had to get to work. I wanted to drop it into a bag of rice overnight to absorb some moisture but I didn't have any.

Do you think it can be saved? I use the thumb buttons for the various voice chat channels in PlanetSide 2 and I'd be lost without them. I'm not against opening it up myself and cleaning some parts out if that'll help.

open it up and see.

the last couple times i spilled beer on my mouse i wiped it down, then opened it up and took some rubbing alcohol on a swab to the plastic parts like the scroll wheel and side buttons to make sure they didnt get stuck and stuff. avoid applying any to the pcb but make sure if there is any moisture there you pat it dry with an anti static cloth.

i suppose it depends on how much was spilled and if the core internals got saturated to the point they are no good anymore. in my experience with spills (and its alot) ive managed to salavage all the mice its happened to.

good luck.

EDIT: what kind of beer was it? i've somehow managed to spill only Alagash Tripels on mine rofl.

The mouse is dead now. I'll open it when I have time, maybe something's just shorted out now. It was Bud Light btw.

i wonder if there is anything razer will do? i doubt it.

good luck.

It's done for. These things don't open! No screws, even under the pads/feet things. So I tried prying the top off because it had seams, and it just snapped instead.
