Performance MX mouse..
show user profile  kiko
Hi everyone!

I've been having problems with my performance MX mouse recently, the bloody thing has started to double clikc on it's own, I reckon some of you (at least Bolts judging from a pic of his desk) also use this mouse, have you had any similar problems??

It has been working great just until last week when it decided to be a complete dick.

That is the subject in question.

i havent owned that specific mouse but i've had plenty of mice that have started to double click as they get old, if thats the case then its just that the mechanics has worn out - time to get a new mouse.

yeah, i do have that one... solid mouse for the most part but if something like that is happening; then it's more than likely time for new components aka either a return/repair or empty wallet.

Oh well, I was afraid I would get those answers, solid mouse indeed, feels really comfortable for my big(gish) hand and wheighs just about right.

Been looking for some equivalente technology from M$ or others, you know to make it work flawlessly on glass, but none appear to be able to do so. Any suggestions?

I have that one at work, and it's predecessor before it. They're awesome mice.

Regarding your issue, does it need cleaning maybe? If parts aren't moving totally free, it could cause some grief like what your experiencing.

Sure, I've had a whole can of compressed air blown into it with no luck :( , the mouse works perfectly for about an hour everytime then starts acting like this.

Might be, as stated by stabby and bolts, that it's just asking for an early retirement .. :(

Mice can get gunky in ways that canned air cant fix. If you're to the point of chucking it, pull it apart, and start cleaning contacts, joints, pivot points, and edges. Clean the poo out of it with rubbing alcohol and some tissue or a toothbrush or whatever you can find.. If nothing else, it'll be fun =)

Found this video of some guy repairing the MX revolution, might just be what I need to do with mine, looks pretty similar to it anyways.

I've had two of these that I bought about a week after they were put out to market. The only issue I've had with mine is the one I've used more doesn't always hold a click when you click and drag, which can be a bummer when you are coding all the time and trying to select blocks of text xD

No double clicking though.

@spoon, yeah I think I had a little too much coffee yesterday :)
@Stephen R, that is exactly the same issue, the thing can't hold a drag because it is actually double clicking.
@reeves, maybe you are right, might be time to switch back to the good ol intuos 4, the thing I loved about this mouse is it does not net a mouse pad to track on the glass desk :(

if you are going to take it apart, do what i do. I lay out a large sheet of white paper so i make sure no parts go a missing. then i use a piece of egg crate foam to separate the screws. there are going to be quite a few of them in there. Helps to keep everything organized. then i take pictures with my phone as i take things apart so i know where they go upon rebuild. Helps when you end up with a piece still sitting on the table after it's all together. also has been a help when you can't remember which direction a part goes.
