Logitech MK345 Comfort Keyboard and Mouse Combo

I bought a keyboard and mouse combo from Costco. I thought it is a good deal.  $29.00 plus ECO Fee 0.5 , plus tax.  Some store price it at $66.77 plus shipping.

  • Full-size Keyboard.
  • Mouse in good size. Not a compact one.
  • Batteries are pre-installed.
  • Keyboard battery life is 36months. 2 X AAA batteries. ( Based on the support website, it is said 48 months, or 4 years. But I think 36 months is more conservative.)
  • Mouse Battery life is 18 months. 1 X AA battery.

Logitech EX110 Mouse problem

I have a set of Logitech EX110 keyboard & mouse set at home. I used it about 20 months.
From last month, I have a problem with the mouse.
When I make a single click on the left button, it works like double click. Not always, but very often. And also it happens randomly.
So I have nothing to do with it. I find a wired mouse to replace it.
Later I read a post has similar situation in Chinese.
OK. I have a small screw driver and sewing needle.
I open the mouse with screw driver.

Open the cap of the micro switch with sewing needle.
Clean the contact points by a copier paper. Cut a small piece of paper, fold it and put it in between of the points. Just rub couple times.
Assemble it and it works.
