Hi:smileyhappy:,
 
Using compressed air might help to some degree.

the buttons wear out sooner or later. try altering finger position a bit. if that doesn't help, buy a newone.

Re: Marble mouse help

The microswitch wearing-out is a common problem on every brand of mouse I've ever owned.

Try it on another PC to make sure it is the mouse that is the problem (not your PC for some reason). If the problem is the same on the other PC, get the mouse replaced or fix it yourself.

Less than 30 days since purchase, you need to exchange it where you got it.
After 30 days, you would be covered under the 3 or 5 year warranty from Logitech.
See here for RMA info. You could also e-mail Customer Support if you need help with the warranty procedure.

Here's some options if you want to repair it (voids any remaining warranty):
1. You may be able to bend the metal spring back into a shape that will work. See these instructions.

2. Any standard Omron D2F series or compatible microswitch can be used if you want to do some soldering. Digikey.com and Newark.com sell them, or you can salvage a less-worn microswitch from another dead mouse.

3. After you get it fixed, don't press hard on the buttons (it wears them out faster).
