And another Logitech mouse, whose OMRON switches have reached EOL.

@chairraver You're having the same problem? I thought I was going crazy as my Logitech mouse was failing to register clicks.

@blucrunch @chairraver I have always had this problem with multiple mice models to as far back as I can remember.

@blucrunch @codeHaiku There is even a pretty hardcore fix (redferret.net/?p=31008), which I tried, but helped only short term. Quite a bit fiddling required. Anyway, it appears as if this switch type (for Logitech) is the only one in the world.

@chairraver @blucrunch I tried this and got frustrated after many failed attempts. I ended up throwing away the mouse.

@chairraver I had the same problem with M570, I bought better switches and resoldered. Problem came out shortly after I bought it.

@michalb Yes, I put new right button switches into my 2 M570 as well. It's the Logitech mouse of my wife, which awaits replacements now.

@michalb Oh, I forgot. I wanted to ask, what those better switches are? I just went to Ebay and found switches identically named and ordered them. Could of cause be knock-offs.

@chairraver I had to find invoice for them :) I bought D2F-T, they are louder but they work for 3 years and I had no problems with them. I don't know since when they started to put such poor switches, I had a Trackman Marble and it last for a long time until the roll broke. I bought M570 then and surprise :)
