2020.4.10 ADD How to modify the Apple Magic Mouse
End of ADD
I tried it at the store and it really doesn’t make the ticking sound of the mouse. There is a recessed sensation when clicking, but no sound. I was a little worried about the clicking sound when I was out and about, so I’m going to modify my mouse to a quiet one.
First of all, there is a screw at the bottom left of the plus mark where the battery enters, so break the seal and loosen the screw.
Pull from the head in the direction of the buttocks and the back cover will come off. It feels like you’re pulling out, and requires a little power.
The substrate is attached to the back cover, so the board can be removed by removing the claws on the cover indicated by the circle in the photo.
Oh yeah, and check to see if it’s a replaceable switch. The original switch model number was D2F-01F orD2FC-F-7N.
The switch has come off. This time, the middle button also had a bad contact, so I replaced it as an afterthought. The model number of the middle button is B3F-1000. This is a normal tact switch, not a silent one.
It’s also available at “Marutu Parts”.
Connect it to the computer and check the operation. It has been restored safely. The clicking sound has gone from a “click” to a “knack” sound and is much quieter. The mouse I’m used to has become a silent mouse.
