About: a student who likes to poke around stuff and get to the deep of it

well I play FPS games a lot so the left click of button is used quite a lot and after some time it gets damaged

what to do now ?
I have a solution
let's repair it

Step 1: Things You Will Need

1. soldering iron
2. solder wire
3. solder gel
4.cheap dead mouse of same size (you can get it from any junk selling store )

OR

you can use your other bad mouse

5. screw driver

Step 2: Taking the Needed Parts

as you can see in the picture that the parts are missing because i took them

(the rectangular box on the PCB)

these were buttons that we hear clicking

Step 3: Putting the Button

so after removing the buttons from junk mouse I removed the damaged button from my current mouse and soldered the new one from the junk mouse

Step 4:

Step 5: Scroll Button Repair

you can also replace the scroll ,
my scroll also got damaged because I needed to switch between weapons during the game

so I replaced it .

Step 6: Done

fixed everything
its time to enjoy now

    I can buy new mouse for for 2$ , but I had plenty of mouse who's left click was not working but the right click and center click were perfect , so why should I generate more e - waste when I can still use it .
