Logitech is a popular manufacturer of some good quality computer gear, and it is most famous for computer mouse interfaces and PC accessories. Given that most of the time mouse itself still functions properly, and that the usual suspect of all malfunctions is the USB cable itself in wired models, it is a shame not to give this a go.

STEPS TO REPAIR YOUR MOUSE:

STEP 1
Open mouse casing (there are usually 1 or 2 screws at the bottom, but this may vary between models and brands) and cut the part of the USB cable at the entrance point, where the circuit break usually happens due friction and stretching force

STEP 2
Strip the outer layer from the cable, and remove the insulation from the tips of the inner wires

STEP 3
Solder both cable sections, but be careful to join wires of the same colors

STEP 4
Test your mouse after soldering job to make sure that everything is all right

STEP 5
Insulate each individual wire with the paper or masking tape, duct tape or whatever kind that you have at hand [important: use tape which does NOT conduct electricity]

STEP 6
Re-assemble the mouse back together and enjoy! :)
