My new pc has an optical mouse that lites up red and blue. It seems pretty generic; the only possible identity I can see is “LITE-UP” and some numbers.
There are two problems:
Slop between the wheel itself and the encoder part (easy to fix)
The scrolling jumps up and down several spaces when I’m scrolling in only one direction. It also ignores scrolling clicks sometimes.
It is this latter problem I need advice on. I took it apart and cleaned out some dust bunnies and hair, gave it a good visual inspection, but it is still doing that. I can feel the indents on the encoder and they feel firm. Don’t know what else to look at.
Anyone have any experience with something like that?
