Today I found in my desk drawer a old mouse, Microsoft 2000 model 1416.
So, because of the long time it stayed in there with two alkaline batteries, it’s obvious that the batteries leaked.
I disassembled it completely down, I wanna see if it still work, put is in a solution of vinegar and water and left it there for some minutes to neutralize the batteries acid.
I washed, dried it and reassembly.
I tried to put new batteries to see if it work again, but it doesn’t happened. So, I disassembly again and tried to find out whats wrong.
During the searches I end up discovering that the mouse tried to work when I turn it on, it blinks a blue led for a instant and turn off again.
Now I’m searching for schematics online to better debug it.
If you have, let me know! ;)
