anyone ever have problems with double clicking on the g400 mouse?

idk what it is with this mouse. Occasionally it goes through periods of like a couple hours where every time I click the left button once it clicks twice. This makes it so frustrating to highlight text or drag windows or anything else that involves holding that mouse button down.

But then like a couple hours later it's fixed and everything's back to normal. I don't know what it could be. I've tried removing the mouse pad but it's obviously not a sensor problem. I just don't know why it's broken one minute and then the next everything's normal...

Could be the internal parts. I know my Logitech M570 is only a year and a half old or so and it's been doing that nonstop for the past few days. I read that it's a known problem with the model. Apparently Logitech cheaped out on the components and opted for no copper in the switches, whatever that means. I'm guessing it has to do with the part that registers a click. Dunno if it's true or not, but whatever the case, a mouse model shouldn't have widespread reports of the double clicking issue after less than two years of use.

Sometimes your pieces start getting faulty due to materials, it does that sometimes.

Hopefully you have a warranty to replace it.

thanks I would have replaced it a while ago if the problem didn't keep fixing itself each time. The mouse is almost 2 years old but this problem has been going on for at least a year.

All computer mice eventually have that problem. The internal part that control the clicking is actually just piece of molded thin metal. You can bend the spring part if you're comfortable working with small parts and disassembly and reassembly, which will fix the problem for a bit until you have to do it again later (if you haven't replaced your mouse by then).

I've been using the mouse I have currently for almost two years, and I've had to operate on it twice. It's just a cheap standard mouse though, and I used to play some click-heavy games (LoL, Diablo II + III and diablo clones, etc.). At this point I'td be less hassle replacing it with a better quality mouse, but I'm cheap. =P
