What causes MouseWheel Button (3) Stiffness/Dullness?

#1MwulfPosted 9/2/2013 8:19:57 PM
It's taking more and more force for me to get Mouse Button 3 to register. What could be causing this? Is it something I can fix? I tried to pop out the mousewheel, but it didn't seem to be able to come out (like those old mouse roller-balls). Is it just dirty? If I crack open the casing, could I fix it? Or is this caused by a faulty sensor or something?

I've got a Logitech m510. It's almost exactly one year old.

Then what's the best way to deal with my zombie skin living under my mouse wheel?

Logitech is pretty good with sticking to their warranties. I think they are 3 years for all mice. So if there is nothing you can do about it, you might be able to exchange it for a new one.
