1) First of all, a challenge for me. Then next,


the fact that I receive 6 dead mouses: plenty of
subjects for testing the best possible surgery ;-)

2) Same disease: total or partial rupture of the cable at its


junction with the mouse's block (yellow arrow).

3) First of all to open the mouse: removes the first white ring.

4) We see the damaged cable.

5) Now, a delicate step. Removing the


second, black, ring... keeping it as intact as
we can... because it is on this ring that the
mouse's transparent shell is glued on!

6) I start with a small lever, then I use a plate


ruler (to apply the same effort on a bigger
surface and therefore to avoid damaging the
ring).

7) The mouse's shell now unhooked

8) We can now attack the plastic ring.

9) Unfortunately, it is glued on the rear part


of the mouse. We can remove then but we
damage it...

10) The now removed ring.

11) We can unplug the defect cable.

12) The yellow arrow shows a small metallic ring which


clamp the inset onto the cable. The inset is used to impede
cable's movement inside the mouse.

The best solution would be to replace the connector just


before the break... but I have no other one!

13) -> cut and weld ;-)

The inset is pointed by the blue arrow. The yellow one shows the metallic ring.

14) We slide the inset a little away. We can


replace the metallic if we are sure where
the inset was. Which is not my case?

15) We smoothly denude the cable.

16) All the parts.

17) We pewter the wires. We start from the


mass's braid on which we put a thermal
retractable girdle. Unfortunately, I do not
have another fine girdle for the other
wires:-( so I will use some 'chatterton'.
Other wires are not easy to identify: one
black, one black/white, one black/green and
one black/red

18) Dirty weld :-(

19) Other ones are better. And the LED


works back.

20) -> Now, rebuilding the mouse. We


unplug it from the USB connector, the
latter we pass in the black shell.

21) Then next through the transparent


bottom...

22) Through the black part of the rear...

23) ... that we can now slide back in the transparent


bottom.

24) We can put back the led's lens.

25) Then put back the electronic circuits


(yellow arrow).

Do not loose (blue arrow) the tab.

The white arrow shows one of the


'chatterton' welds.

26) We can therefore put back the black


shell onto the electronic board.

27) Put back one of the "ear" (yellow


arrow) and prepare to put in place the
led's cache.

28) We will clamp it on its lugs (one of


them shows by the yellow arow).

Then same operation with the next "ear" (blue arrow).

29) The cache back in place.

30) Now, we have to slide the tab pointed by the yellow


arrow into the inset pointed by the blue arrow.

31) We clamp the shell onto the mouse's


bottom.

32) Sure, the mouse has suffered during


this operation ;-)

33) The last pieces...

34) Therotically speaking, the metallic


ring has to go there.

36) The shell shows cyanocrilic glue


droplets...

37) The ring has to be glued at the 3 places shown by the yellow arrows.

A delicate operation as we have to straighten up the damaged black ring.

38) For the transparent shell, two other glue droplets


(yellow arrows).
