Mice with no sensor lens rattle? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Speaking of g303 rattle, if it doesnt already have it, Is it possible that it starts to over time or by shaking? Or will it stay intact if it was from the beginning?

if you get "sensor" (lens) rattle, you can buy a really cool piece pf technology called tape, it is a long plastic stripe with glue on one side, it can hold anything, from paper, to plastic mouse lenses, to people you kidnapped

How is the rattle gonna get worse over time? its just a plastic lense badly fitted on another piece pf plastic, high production tolerance or bad design. It's like asking if a maraca will sound louder over time

This is a good point, despite the sensor needing the lens to track properly, so I'll stop stating that the "sensor moves".

Actually, in many mice, SOMETIMES the screws weaken as the plastic ages, so the pcb is slightly loose, So the sensor CAN in fact move.biggrin.gif

I would actually say asking if it gets worse over time is a completely valid question. I do not know if it gets substantially worse, but it wouldn't be a horrible assumption if used over a prolonged period of time (I think Rocket Jump Ninja said his g303 rattle got worse). If there is a rattle, that means it will lightly batter anything that it is restrained by. Through prolonged and aggressive usage, even a maraca will break down and not be usable. Obviously it would take time and heavy usage, but saying it definitely can't happen is silly.

I also stated earlier in the thread that I already have taped down the lens in the g303 that I own. I don't want to replace the mouse feet every time I need to put new tape in there. I also want to stray away from modifying mice so I can buy a replacement that will function in the exact same way. Even if you still believe tape is a good fix for this, that is not what the thread is about. Not trying to be rude. sadsmiley.gif

On a related note to the original topic, I recently bought a rival 300. It has very minor lens rattle, but I am not sure how much it is having an effect on the tracking.

i wouldn't even call it lens rattle, because it doesn't necessarily make sound even though it might be loose.
my G303 rattles even when M1, M2, M3 and the lens are all secure. and before i taped the lens it barely made any sound, even though it was very loose.

another misnomer added to the already-long list i suppose

the sensor is the ic soldered to the pcb, through hole for all sensors except the 3988/3989 which is smc, the lens is a separated piece of plastic under the sensor except for the vcsel ones where it is atatched to the ic itself

I understand that the "sensor rattle" problem happens when the plastic bottom shell of the mouse, where the lens goes, cant hold the lens securely, maybe because the plastic mold didnt have the exact dimensions of the lens used

You can remove mouse feet without damaging them a few times by slicing slowly with a sharp cutter under the glue.
