top kek.

So did the drilling work? The threads on your mouse are gone now right?

And what the hell did you use to drill? did you do it by hand?

When the drill bit broke it tore up the main button pcb but atleast the sensor board is intact. Unfortunately I cant seem to be able to unscrew any of the pcb screws because Razer glued them on with a very strong adhesive. Going to need to figure out a way to get the sensor pcb out intact so I can maybe make a kinzuadder one day.

Do you have a flathead screwdriver that fits?

The LMB was already dead. If I cant even open it properly to fix it the mouse is dead to me anyways.

Had this happen when I tried open my first Deathadder. It took me a minute to think "hmmm I need a larger handle on this screwdriver for more grip!"

Also whenever I imagine omar231 using a drill all I can think of is Paul Timberman.

I tried a larger handle screw driver but none of them fit the screw. I tried using pliers+eyeglass screwdriver but it wouldnt budge.

If the're not deep then you can try pushing a solder iron against it.

Then get the proper tools before wrecking anything and everything.

Let me guess, you have one of these?

If you do, drop it. Before you end up stripping everything the drivers touch. The drivers at this point probably have worn out already as well.

Get yourself a quality #1 philips head driver. A 2mm flathead should work as well.


LMB is easy to fix. 3 solder joints, if that's too much than just open the switch and refurbish the spring.
