Dream Machines DM1 Pro S - Page 54

post #531 of 934
After just under a weeks use I have had one problem with the mouse. SENSOR RATTLE! I always thought it might have been a loose side button but I just did the tape test and it was definitely noticeable.

I fixed it though, when removing the shell I noticed that if I applied light pressure to the sensor chip on the PCB the rattle would stop. Looks like the lens of the sensor wasn't flush with the bottom of the mouse shell, letting it move freely from side to side.

I fixed the problem by cutting up one of the damaged mouse feet and layering 3 strips on top of the chip, then using electrical tape, rolled a small "stud" to attach to the shell. Together it applies just enough pressure to keep the PCB and sensor pressed to the bottom shell, eliminating the rattle all together.

This is unfortunate. I was going to check on my DM1 Pro S but I already sold it on eBay. The G303 had the same issue and I'm wondering if any of the Nixeus Revel owners are experiencing this as well. Could this be half-hearted assembly effort on the 336x sensors? Why implement a decent sensor in the most piss poor manner (resulting in rattle)? It makes no sense.

If you damage the seal that is keeping lens attached to sensor then it will rattle.

Lens rattle. Sensors do not rattle, unless they are physically broken.

I doubt it's related to damage, at least not damage related in all of the cases. The tolerances for the heat-staking process have just been a bit off. I have 4 G303's with different amounts of rattling and not a single one had damage on the lens posts that go through the 3366. I have one G303 opened for experimenting so it is just the bare bottom plate and the PCB. On that one I can pull the heat-staked ends up just a tiny bit with my finger nails (the vertical movement is a fraction of a millimeter). However, the DM1 PRO S could have a better assembly process (at least the lens in my doesn't rattle) and in this case it could very well be a damaged product. One could easily inspect this if they already opened the mouse. At least it hasn't been a common problem like it is for the G303 so if the lens rattles, the product should be RMAd.

The way this mouse is designed, the whole PCB is floating. That could also be cause of rattle if there's not enough pressure.

Technically the lens could/(should?) be attached to the sensor by heat-staking the poles properly so the lens would not rattle at all even when there's no bottom plate. Generally other sensors do use pressure to keep the lens in place though. I think A9x00/3360/3366 are the only exceptions. That's not to say that this sensor couldn't be used to do that. E.g. my Taipan has no heat-staking done yet the lens is firmly secured in place.

The mouse with the smoothing agent on the mouse chip that gives you the authority over your shots.

Just got it in the mail today, DPI button seems to be stuck down and constantly switching DPI's when I move it. I take it opening the mouse forfeits any RMA??

I believe so but you probably have better luck fixing it your self than getting it RMA, i sent them an email and still no answer in 2 weeks.
