Opened up the left-handed Razer Deathadder and unscrewed the circuit board (left) from the top of the mouse. For those looking for the appropriate type of screwdriver, you’ll need one with a #000 cross point head.
The tough part is that the top circuit board is fused to the bottom circuit board by the flat cable that I ended up breaking. I had to pay a visit to my godfather who owns a soldering iron to fix that up.
In the end, I was able to try the fix I had found before, but it didn’t fully fix the scroll wheel issue. I think that if I had the tools myself, I would try again, but for the sake of just being productive and enjoying my time and also having a functioning Deathadder, I’m going to be content for now.
