How can i disassemble my logitech m315/m235? Answered

Basically, my mouse double clicks instead of a single click and i would like to fix it myself since i cannot refund or ask for a replacement because i cannot find the receipt. How can i disassemble my mouse? I can't find any screws (i have checked under the stickers and other thing) and the bottom is locked on pretty tight. I found like a latch on the back to push the top cover a bit off but something prevents it from dis-attaching itself.

Looking for some help in converting a Logitech Dual Action game pad to a PC driving wheel.

I know my basics around wiring and soldering, but I need some help in finding the area on the Logitech Dual Action game pad circuit board I should solder the potentiometers for the Wheel and the three pedals.  Also, what Ohm Potentiometer should I use for this controller?  I have a few 100K pots left over from a guitar project, but I'm not sure if it'll be too much for the controller.   Attached are a couple of pictures of the circuit board (not mine). Thanks!

Logitech X 620 sub pinout?

Found a powered subwoofer ( Dumpster!!!) of a 6.1 computer sound system. Not the  6 smaller speakers. The front right speaker would have had the inputs and controls in it . A cable with a VGA connector had to be plugged into the amp in the back. No pinout info was found I have a similar 2.1 system (Logitech Z3), which is all I need for casual use (My real system is unusable due to neighborhood pressure...) The amp contains 2 TDA 7377 chips,and many more components than prescribed by the data sheet (some of it is the power supply)- ( Does more complicated mean better here?). 2 Options: 1) rip the TDA chips out and use one to make a 2.1 or a stereo amp with components according to the datasheet. The other one a stereo or quad for a different project. 2) find out the pinout and use the amp 'as is' (which would mean putting both all R and all L channels together (parallel?) to make a 2.1. A lot less work. (Since I am not going to use the 6.1 configuration, will the sophistication of the design still deliver?)? If anyone knows the pinout I would of course first try working with the existing circuit...

Logitech g110 keyboard macros not working

I am trying to get the macro keys to work using libg15 with no luck. I compiled it from the svn source. The only thing that seems to work is the testlibg15 program that says which of the g keys are pressed. I added the uinput kernel module, and the g15daemon is running and detects the keyboard, but the m keys don't light up. On post #10 here someone says that they got it working, but didn't say how.

recommended cameras for FTIR?

Hi Everyone, Need some wisdom on a good camera to get for a multi-touch ftir screen. i've destroyed two cameras so far trying to making this thing work (to no avail) :-( #1 was a Logitech quickcam pro 9000 (had to rip apart the AF mechanism to get to the IR filter) #2 was a Logitech quickcam chat, which i successfully converted (ie pulling the IR filter and putting in a visible light filter - film), but the thing would work in low light levels to save its own soul, and turns out CMOS sensors are no good for this kind of application from what I'm reading. So if anyone out there has a camera that they've had particularly good luck with that they'd like to share the name of with me, I'd be ever so grateful. Eviscerating cameras has started to become an expensive proposition for me, so the fewer the better! Thanks!

DIY Bluetooth speaker build, advice please

Hi all Apologies for the newbie questions, I've decided to build my first portable speaker system. I was hoping to make my own version of the 'Vintage Audio Suitcase Speaker' e.g. I have found some second hand 6.5 inch 'Response' woofers for a cheap price and I have two spare satellite speakers from my Logitech Z-5500 system. Suitcase should be relatively easy to source. What I'm struggling with is the amp and battery choice. I'd like this to be able to run for a few hours on battery, and be easy to recharge via mains or USB. I don't mind spending a bit of money on the amp as I'd like this to last a good few years. The tricky part is, with my current speaker plan, it would need to run 4 speakers that are rated at 70wrms each. Plus the Logitechs are 8 ohm and the Response woofers are 4 ohm. Is this possible? Advice much appreciated.

How to connect a PS/2 keyboard to a USB port? Answered

I have a Logitech 250 keyboard with a PS/2 connector and would like to connect it to a USB port on my laptop. I bought a keyboard PS/2 to USB adapter, but it did not work. So, I bought a combined keyboard/mouse PS/2 to USB adpater and this did work. I no longer have it and it was quite bulky. So, I bought a USB plug, cut the PS/2 connector off the cable and carefully soldered the USB plug in its place. I checked the colour coding of the wires inside the keyboard: Vcc + is red, Data 1 is yellow, Data 2 is green, 0 v is white and Screen is black. I looked up the USB pin outs on Wikipedia and made sure that the Vcc and O v wires were in the correct positions on the USB plug by carefully metering the pins on the laptop USB port. I tried connecting the yellow wire to pin 2 and green wire to pin 3 on the USB plug and the reverse, but neither worked. Logitech support offered me a discount on a USB keyboard, but I'm intrigued to know why it does not work, when the combined keyboard/mouse PS/2 to USB adpater did work. Can anyone enlighten me and hopefully tell me how to make it work?

And my issue is distortion in the subwoofer mostly and when i touch the wires going from the amp to the sub level knob i get really bad feedback through the sub and it will cut out also. I know the wiring is a cluster fudge and this was just a "going to wire it up to see if it works then protect it all later" kinda job. Do you think non insulated wire could be the culprit?

I have done some tests with my old subwoofer (logitech z5500) and I noticed that as the bass goes deeper, I got distorsions... I have read that we can use an amp to store energy (? :S) but it could start a fire due the heat. Can someone help me? Obviously I can use the leds directly conected to the subwoofer and dont turn the subwoofer volume to high and everything will be ok, but I really want to make something cool and safe. The HTiB this an Onkyo HT-S9700THX, and the subwoofer is powered directly to current, the amp just pass signals. I thing this is called a pre-amp subwoofer, correct if Im wrong please.

Strange problems with the mouse and keyboard? Answered

Must be bad karma for the new year but both my mouse and my keyboard are playing games with me on the PC. Of course they are wireless, mouse is a Logitech, keyboard some very old Aldi brand. After many years of good service they started to fail at the same time. And yes, I tried fresh batteries several times with no luck ;) Here are the current symptoms: 1. Keyboard Randomly keys I press fail to show up although the blinking on the receiver indicates an action was received. When typing a bit faster, and for me that is the two-finger-best-hope method a lot gets lost. My speed is slow enough to make a bad typist laugh in tears LOL In some rare cases I also get totally wrong results, usually somethe graphical character that otherwise need and ascii input to appear. 2. Mouse At times when the keyboard plays up the little rodent does the same. Here it means the pointer disappears or moves in jumps. Also mouse clicks on let's say a tab in the bowser often grab the tab or are not registered at all. It is now starting to annoy me, mainly bcause I failed to rectify this problem in any good way. Only system change in or before the problems started was the usual Windows 7 monthly update, but that came about a week before it all started. To make things worse the mouse uses Logitechs old wireles tech while the keyboard is in a totally different frequency and as said dirt cheap. I also fail to replicate the problem consistently or find a common cause. Funny thing: If used on my old Nexus tablet both perform just fine even from over 5m away. Would love to hear some thoughts on things to try or check... But so you know: Tried the drivers, different ports relocating the receivers and even a rollback of Windows to a state from Nov last year. Everything else connected to the USB ports performs fine. Am at the stage where I even accept weird things to try, so fire up please!

Solve feedback from speakers, similar to mobile phone.

Only very recently i've been hearing a sound in my headphones and it sounds exactly like when i would recieve a text message or a phone call(with a much older pair of headphones). The difference being there is no phone anywhere near me and i've never experienced this with my current pair (wirelss Logitech F540's) and i've had them over a year, even when i'm using my phone right beside them. Its recently also being happening to my housemate who lives accross the hall from me, we've both tried turning our phones off and asked for our housemates living below us to do the same, but the problem persists. Could there be some device that is causing the problem inside or outside of the house that i havn't thought of? And is there a method of fixing the headphones/speakers themselves.

How would a stronger magnet impact the performance of a speaker, and what impacts the overall quality of a speaker? Answered

Okay, so I had decided to build a sub-woofer for a speech topic for school, and I was wondering what it was that made speakers, or sub-woofers so loud an efficient. Granted, I know mine is far from great, while being made from ply-wood, duct-tape, and everything, but why is it that professionally manufactured speakers are so loud by them-selves with minimal power? I am using the circuits from my Logitech X-240 system, and the sub-woofer is always way louder than that of my home-made speaekr, with a significantly smaller ceramic magnet, it seems. Is it the geometry of the speaker itself, or what? What do manufacturers do in construction which improves the sound, or quality of speakers, and would using a neodymium magnet be better than using ceramic magnets? Any help is appreciated, and thank you in advance.
