Repairing Failed Switch Swaps or Other Ambiguous Mouse Service Requests
Before we get any further: having me fix broken mice costs more than if you just sent it to me to begin with. And there is no guarantee I will take on the job of fixing your broken mouse if I am not relatively certain I can fix it.
Why does this cost more? Because now you need someone who knows not just how to do the original switch swap, but you need someone who knows how to do a switch swap on a mouse with a known bad PCB, or you need to buy a new mouse.
Fixing a job gone wrong takes much longer than just doing it correctly from the jump.
For this reason, the cost for me to fix your broken mouse has a minimum base cost of $75, with an hourly rate of $75/hour beyond one hour, billed in full hour increments.
For example, if you broke your Starlight-12, and I was able to fix it in two hours, the labor cost is $150, plus return shipping and parts costs. GPW Superlight in one hour would be $75 plus return shipping and parts costs. Zowie FK1 in ten minutes would be $75 plus return shipping and parts costs (aka not really worth it unless you had to have your choice of switches or the mouse is special to you).
To get started: take well lit, crystal clear video and photos of the solder job in questions, and put them into an Imgur album or Google Drive folder. Fill out the switch swap order form, include the link to the photos/albums, tell me what’s going on with the mouse, and I will assess the damage and let you know if I am willing to take on the job, and we can go from there.
Again, there is no guarantee I will take on the job unless I am somewhat certain I can fix it. I am entitled to turn down or accept jobs as I see fit.
