post #2101 of 3831
Can anyone help?

Sometimes my mouse locks when moving left or right - vertical movement seems unaffected. I've tried and tried to figure out a pattern/cause, but I'm really short of ideas. If anyone can help solve it I'll be eternally grateful. It's most noticeable in FPS games like TF2 when I suddenly don't turn the full 180 or whatever, but if I head into my desktop and waggle the pointer it'll stick. Once it starts "sticking", it'll do it intermittently for a few hours.

My first though was dust, but I've hit this RAT5 with the better part of an entire can of compressed air, and it doesn't stop it from doing it. Any suggestions gratefully rec'd.

Happens to me rarely, and I think it is because of hairs getting in the sensor. I blow on the sensor, or wipe over it with my finer, and it always seems to fix it.

Keep a q-tip handy. You can use it to dry wipe the laser, or if it seems really bad put a tiny little squirt of glass cleaner like Windex on the Q-tip. Don't soak it, just a little bit to make it moist. Stick it in and twirl it around a few times and then use the opposite end to dry it off. Give it a go and keep your fingers crossed.

This might be a strange question. I want to cut a part of the thumb area in order to move the thumb area further. See the red part of the picture below.

Do you guys think this is possible without breaking the mouse?
I am also going to cut parts to make the mouse feel lighter.

Could be your mousepad. I have this when I use it on my hard black plastic mousepad (have to shake the mouse to get it back to normal). No issues when I use it on my white table. Still looking for a replacement...

Hmm, I've checked for hairs, I can't get a Q-tip small enough to fit in there and compressed air does bugger all.

I suspect it's my surface - pity, as the Lachesis I had before this had no such issues, and this icemat has lasted me for years frown.gif

Anyone got a good alternative surface? Preferably as low a friction co-effecient as possible biggrin.gif

I use the Razer Vespula mouse pad. Its dual sided with a grainy side and a smooth side. I dont often get issues using this mouse pad. If only it was larger as i like low dpi when playing fps games.

Yeah the icemat is no good for the twin eye usually - kind of odd that it was fine for the Lachesis because that uses the twin eye too and I know I've tested the Lachesis on one and had lots of issues. Basically, anything glass is a no-no.

The Lachesis had the PLN2031 in it, which works fine on the Icemat as long as you keep it very clean. When it gets shiny areas it may start to track bogus and it may start delaying tracking after lifting the mouse often (recalibration process - it could most likely be improved via firmware).

The Razer mice with the PLN2032 and PLN2033 on the other hand all work flawlessly on the Icemat and even reach high perfect tracking speeds on it. So it's a bit odd that the Cyborg mice with the same sensor have troubles tracking on the Icemat (but my guess is a firmware issue or more specific calibration issue).

I have now cut the thumb area, killed the (ugly) lights and removed the pinky rest. The only thing i have left to do is cutting some of the aluminium to reduce the weight even more. Ah yeah, and I need a new hard mousepad because the MMO7 doesn't track on the Steelseries 4hd...

Would love to see some pics. The thumbrest is one of the things that keeps me away from the R.A.T mice.
