"Broken" Mouse? Wheel issues? Finicky buttons? Fix it! (Or at least, I did) - Page 2

Honestly, the difference between two out of the box same model Deathadders was bigger than the difference between the same one before and after I modded it. If you get the switch in more or less the right position (which is really hard NOT to do), it is going to feel about the same. Minor differences in the actual casing buttons play a bigger role in feel.

So I guess for the moment I should just find out what switch my old RAT 5 uses if I wanted to "play it safe"

I just want add, that the RAT mice are more complicated to disassemble than the average mouse. Everything is a bit smaller and tricky. Remember all steps you do and take shots or follow some instrunctions with pics. I don't want to prevent you at all. Just give you an idea.

AFAIK my RAT mice use all Omrons D2FC-F-7N for button 1 and 2.

To desolder the switch, I recommend to add some solder first. Afterwards it is easier to remove the complete solder with a pump.

Here is a vid from a guy who opened a omron switch without desoldering: Link

My deathadder 3.5G's circuitry has been damaged in a mishap. It was plugged into a powered USB hub, but by accident, I plugged in the power for my external HDD into the hub. There was electrical crackling =\ Now mouse doesnt work. No lights or recognition in windows. The hub is one of those ones capable of quick charge and its power supply delivers 5V at 3A, the crazy drive was set to receive 12V at 1.5A from its PS. Perhaps the DA has a designed point of failure for situations like this and i may be able to repair by replacing a single component on the circuitry? Im about to open it up and investigate, maybe someone has done this repair already???

There are two capacitors that could have popped. You could check those. Otherwise, if the PCB itself is damaged that is one of the few parts that can't be easily repaired.

After taking apart laptops and modifying them, a mouse is pretty simple lol, but I do appreciate the warning thumb.gif
