Hello bleepingcomputer-community!

 

I have an issue with my logitech M185 optical mouse. Recently (after cramming it into a satchel for transportation) its optical mouse wheel has begone causing issues. At a random time when turning the wheel, the mouse would suddenly go completely unresponsive and stay like that until I'd remove the battery and stick it back in.

 

Screwing it open reveiled no obvious hardware damage. Couldn't find anyone else having a similar problem. I'm kind of at a loss here, just hoping that there's no irrevertable damage to the circuit.

 

Help would be insanely appreciated.

 

 

Hope my phrasing is well enough, English is not my first language. But that shall not be an excuse for mistakes, if I can word something better just tell me! It's always appreciated and helps one improve.

Do you have another mouse you could try?

 

We could see then if there is a physical problem with the mouse or if there is a Windows issue we can fix.

My standard Optical Microsoft wired USB-mouse works flawlessly.

The problem is definitely the mouse then.

 

I'm sad to tell you that I normally just throw them in the bin when they start acting up. There is no financial way to justify taking it to an electronics repair store with how cheap they are these days.
