Mouse LOGITECH repaired

By on October 4, 2013

An USB Optical Mouse LOGITECH Model: M-UAE96 was brought to me, because it did not work correctly.

The first step was disarming the mouse by means of a screwdriver:

When the mouse was inspected at simple sight there were no electronic components defective:

Then, with the Digital Multimeter the wires from the USB connector to the mouse were checked and there were some broken ones, therefore the next step was to cut them with cutting pliers:

Once these wires were cut, then we have to scratch the end of every wire and then they will become conductive, we can do that with the help of a sharp knife or a blade:

Once the wires were soldered back on the mouse board, and the device was armed, the Optical Mouse came back to life. It was tested with the Operating System, in a PC and it worked ok.

    Thanks a lot. The cable in my mouse broke close to the mouse, I repair old tube radios, so I think I will repair the mouse. I got the mechanical dismounting instructions from another web. Remove the single screw at the back, maybe under a label, and lift carefully the front using a large flat screwdriver until it cliks out, hopefuly without breaking. Best regards from Spain

    Very nice and good work

    With one of the best mouse, old but resistant
    Mouse LOGITECH Model: M-UAE96

    But was better if image with much better quality of wires soldered or with words indicate the position and colors of cables for example.
    Will help others, I think that's your ideal.

    My best regards
    And sorry for my English
