Solved!

Button playing on wireless mouse MG-0856

HP Recommended

Hi there,

 

I have a HP wireless mouse, model No. MG-0856, on which the left mouse button has become temperamental recently, which is probably just due to dirt on the contacts. I can hear the click sound but the object is not selected (no switch contact) or a "double click" occurred (rebound probably due to dirt or oxidation).

 

As the warranty is over, how do I go about taking the mouse apart so I can gain access to the microswitch ? I removed the screw in the battery compartment but it didn't help. Is there a hidden screw somewhere or do I have to use some force ?


Thanks

Sorry, the original message was not clear (copy paste error among others). It's been edited now. It is not a software or optical problem. It's the left button switch that needs to be cleaned or replaced. Once I have removed the screw in the battery compartment, how do I open the mouse case to access that switch ? (Hidden screw ? Plastic hooks ?)

 

Thanks.

Hi JagV12,

 

I understand you are having some difficulties with your mouse. While I admit I don't know a great deal about your specific mouse, I thought the following support doc might be helpful, Troubleshooting Mouse Problems (Windows 😎. Take a look at the "The mouse pointer stops moving periodically, only moves in one direction, or moves erratically" section. It has some cleaning instructions you might want to try. Seeing a shot of your mouse, it looks you have the similar LED bulb that, if cleaned as suggested in this doc, might solve your problem. Give it a shot and let me know. Best of luck to you. Have a great day.

Late reply to an old thread, however:

 

There are 4 more screws hidden under the 3 low-friction pads on the base of the mouse. Onnce these have been removed, the case gently unpeels from the bottom to a "hingy" bit at the top (button) end.
