はじめに

I've had my MX Master for more than 3 years, which is plenty of time to accumulate dust and dog fur. There was enough dust inside the mouse to create friction on the scroll wheel, slowing it down, so I decided to clean it. I also wanted to know if I could upgrade the micro USB port to USB-C. (spoiler alert: no)

  1. That's a lot of gunk!

  2. The mouse has four feet on the bottom, but only the two long ones need to be removed. I used the Jimmy from the Pro Tech Toolkit. I didn't have new feet on hand, so I had to reuse the original ones. This is why there's no step for cleaning the adhesive off and putting new feet on.

Removal of the battery consists of three PH1 screws and one connector that really doesn't want to come loose. Set the top half aside for now.

  7. Time for a bit change! The PCB housing the switches for left and right clicks comes off with four P0 screws and another ZIF connector. The scroll wheel assembly is held in with two P0 screws at the front. There's also a connector for the motor hiding under the ribbon cable for the PCB you just removed. These screws aren't visible in this step, but can be seen in the previous one. I'm terrible at taking pictures.

  8. Three more P0 screws hold this one in place. Be careful to put the little doohickey on the red wire back in place (I can't remember the name)

    • We can see the micro USB connector on the underside. Unfortunately, I can't upgrade it to USB-C with the equipment I have.

    • I have the equipment to clean it though! A can of compressed air was all I needed.

  9. I couldn't get the wheel out of the assembly, but I was able to   spin it with some compressed air. I didn't get it on video, but a big chunk of dust came flying out. I apologize in advance for filming in portrait mode. Also, I failed to get a shot of the debris inside the wheel. That spring on the bottom in the first picture will probably fall off. Make sure to keep track of it.

    • I took the assembly apart in an effort to get the wheel out - no dice. I don't know where this oddly shaped spring goes, possibly on this peg, but I left it out and it doesn't seem to be important.

  10. You can follow steps 5-8 in reverse in order to put the bottom back together. The top just needs a bit of compressed air, no disassembly required.

I followed your guide and I found a problem when I put everything together again. Now I turn on the mouse and it’s broken. The battery leds just blink and it doesn’t respond to pressing the channel selection or connect buttons, it just doesn’t work or sincronizes with the dongle, just shows the battery leds blinking. Anyone has any suggestion? Many thanks.

I have the same problem (all three LED’s blink green and no response to pressing channel selection or connect buttons) that Juan Suarez describes.

I would also be happy for any suggestions on how to fix the issue.

Max -

And? Did you find a way to fix it?

Nicholas Blair -

Unfortunately I did not.

Max -

Have you tried reseating the ribbon cables?
