My beautiful mouse

Postby martin » Tue Mar 23, 2010 2:17 pm

Is dead. I knocked it off the table, and now the scroll wheel is wonky.

So, anyone know anything about repairing a logitech g7? I'm willing to pay some money is there is somewhere that does it.

Alternatively, what recommendations does anyone have? I'm looking for a gaming mouse, it has to be wireless. I really liked the shape and feel of the g7, so anything similar to that would be great. I also like the double battery system of the g5, so anything like that is also a bonus.

Sorry, don't know much about wireless mice.

Have you tried taking it apart and reassembling it? Maybe you just knocked a censor or gear out of place. Be careful if you do though. I think the G series has some small ball bearings. Good luck.

I planned to take it apart, after all it couldn't get any more broken. Turns out the G7 is quite difficult to take apart.

However, my girlfriend came over, and spent 10 seconds fiddling with it, it's now fixed.

As a computer scientist, I'm ashamed I can't fix a mouse :oops:

No need to feel shamed, while you may be a computer scientist who can't fix a mouse you are also a computer scientist that has a girlfriend. How many can say that? :wink:

What on earth would a censor be doing in a mouse? ;)

As sfericz mentioned, the G series is filled with small balls, which some might find objectionable.

Bluetooth enable your computer and get a bluetooth mouse.

I might be imagining it, but my Bluetooth mouse seems to be faster than a wireless mouse requiring a USB dongle thing.

Razer death adder is a cool mouse, but the images on the site seem to have a cable?

If I bluetooth enabled my computer it would be with a bluetooth usb dongle ;)

Well i was always under the impression that Bush installed censos in all mice after Al Gore invented the internet. You know, for his spy program. But i'm more than positive it has nothing to do with sensors. :oops:
