    Hi guys

    Had my Roccat Kova+ for about a year or so now.

    As of recently the left button seems to have a mind of its own.

    it works most of the time,but sometimes i need to click a few
    times before it actually works.

    its especially frustrating when gaming as you could imagine.

    New mouse maybe??
    or is there a simple solution.?
    .

    Try and clean the button. Usually it is best to disassemble the mouse and clean the switch.

    If it is caused by debris sometimes you can get it out by holding the mouse upside down and shaking it.

    Perhaps you can find a guide online somewhere!

    Cheers,
    Fred

    It's a micro switch under the left button ... the most common way they malfunction is the way you described it.
    It is rarely recoverable. It is the part of the mouse that goes first and yes, you probably need to buy a new mouse.
    You may want to check the durability of micro switches next time you shop for mouse.
    I've read somewhere that omron switches are durable.
