I'm having a very similar problem. The left mouse button and scroll wheel both act as the right mouse button when pressed. Been using this mouse since April and this just started happening two days ago. Messing with Setpoint doesn't help and it persists despite changing which USB port it's plugged into and switching between my Windows 7 64bit desktop and Vista laptop.
Anyone manage to fix their mice yet?

I'm having the same problem. Bought this mouse in early August . it had been working great; now the left click is giving me right click results, and none of my other buttons work. From the other comments on this page, it looks like this is a common failure. A reply would be nice, Logitech! Or don't you want to admit your mouse has an issue?

I just purchased the G500 mouse and was very excited to get my hands on it only to find out that I too am unfortunate enough to have the exact same problem. The left mouse button will ALWAYS do whatever the right mouse button is assigned to. For example, I can go into setpoint, change the right mouse button to do 'left click' instead of 'right click' and now both buttons do the left click operation. If I change right mouse button to something else, the left mouse button starts doing the same exact thing. Now keep in mind in setpoint, the left mouse button function doesnt actually change but the operation of the button does.
I repackaged it back up and since I got it from newegg, I'm guessing I can return it there.
On a side note, I recently bought a logitech gamepad, the F710, and was greatly disappointed as it has issues with not being able to connect. Previous to that, I had issues with a Logitech G15 Keyboard and even before that, a Logitech Wired Headset. This G500 mouse is the last Logitech purchase I will be making. I've lost faith in this company to produce quality items.

This problem started today for me. I've had my G500 for about 30 months.
If I bind both mouse buttons to left click, it will left click, but if either is set to right click, both will open the context menu.
If this weren't a gaming mouse, this wouldn't be such a problem, as I wouldn't need right click, I could use the context key on my keyboard. However, seeing as I like using this for gaming in which right and left click have discrete functions.
Also cannot change DPI from second lowest setting, the light for the third slot flashes momentarily when I try, but it does not change. The back/forward buttons have no net effect, appearing to both activate when either is pressed.
scroll wheel works as intended.

I have this issue also. I have been looking all morning for solutions, but this unsolved forum is the closest thing. Whatever the right click is assigned to, the left click will do too. I even tried swapping buttons and changing the left click's function to test whether it is just in the default state, but no, the issue is persistent for whatever the left click is assigned to as well!
This issue seems to have gone unsolved for months now.

I have the exact same problem, left button = right button and all other buttons, exept the scroll button are nonfunctional... I have alot of products by Logitech, but the next time I'm gonna buy something, I'll look for an other brand, seeing how they treat you as customer...
