MX Anywhere Mouse Repair
I love my MX Anywhere mouse. But I hate the fact that after a year or so, the left click button starts to go bad and registers double-clicks instead of single clicks. Now that I have a soldering iron, I was able to do something about it. I used the right mouse button from an old one whose left button was bad and popped it off. Then I popped off the left button of my current mouse. Then cleaned up the solder pads with some braid. Finally, I popped the right click button onto my current mouse.
The DigiKey part number is EG4686DKR-ND , btw. It’s the E-Switch TS20100F070S.
I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to get it off with just one soldering iron. But I was able with very little effort. I didn’t need one of those pincer soldering irons or a second normal one.
