  14. Corsair Dark Core RGB Wireless Left Click Switch Replacement, Replacement Micro Switches: stap 14, afbeelding 1 van 1
    • There are a number of replacement mouse micro switches available for replacing a faulty one. The quality control on these is not the greatest so buying in at least pairs is advisable

    • The original micro switch is an Omron D2FC-F-K(50M), the 50M referring to its lifetime click expectancy

    • The replacement switches here are from a Lenovo mouse that was bundled in with a new computer. These switches are the right-click (black) and middle-click (black/white)

    • Micro switches donated from another mouse ideally should have little to no use on them, otherwise you might be doing this repair again

    • Using a solder sucker pump in conjunction with your soldering iron, heat up the solder and then use the sucker to remove the molten solder

    • Use a pair of tweezers to avoid getting burned if removing while applying the soldering iron

Excellent guide! Was super easy to follow.

I commented above with a couple differences I found, but I'm not sure if that was maybe due to a different release version of the mouse.

My left button works again (although I took the switch from a Logitech MX1100 that had the exact same Omron switch and the same fault with the other switch in that mouse).

Solid guide thanks. I also replaced the right click since I had it open, that is on the main board so only recommended for the confident, it's fiddley but not any harder.

1. Replace the magnetic side on the mouse. This will hold the inside magnets in place in later steps

2. Unplug battery! Pull the connector, not the wires

3. Unplug the ribbon, the black part is a tiny lift-up latch to unlock the cable, gently pull

4. Remove all screws holding the plastic inner frame & battery (battery can stay glued to that)

4a. Note there's a tiny wedge light-pipe by the magnets that's now loose. remember to put that back

5. Gently unstick 2 silver tapes connecting the thumb circuit board to main. You need to put those back to reassemble

6. Remove screws in main board. Gently lift out sidewise and up.

6a. Note the bottom on/off & 2.5/BLE switches may or may not stay in place.

Reassembly == reverse steps. Take your time lining up the pieces slotting the mainboard back in.

Tip: Cut the microswitch apart if de-soldering is being a pain

I'm having issues with my forward side button, do you happen to know what type of switchs they are and how can I replace them?

Gabriel Koch - Antwoord

I'm experiencing the same issue with my side button, and Corsair support told me I was out of luck. I'd like to know what the side switches are as well so I can do a full refurb on mine.
