 Post subject: Trouble Finding Ground
PostPosted: 02.07.2003 19:15 
So I decided to do this mod, and I went and picked up an optical Microsoft Wheel mouse..
i crack the thing open, and what do I see? the insides are DIFFERENT!
After the period of shock, i found my power source on an alternate capacitor...however I can't find where the ground is...
unlike the old MS mice, there's no ground jump wire that I can see..

any ideas on how to find where the ground is? or perhaps, someone else has an MS wheel mouse that's fairly new, with the new chipset

Take the ground directly from mouse cord. Black/thin black wire should be ground.

Thin one is signal ground and you should select it. That thicker one is the case ground and it might work but the signal ground is the one you should use. :)

okay, I'm going to try it in a few minutes...
if I get fried, then I guess the mod won't work :)

but if it works, I'll name my first child "Japala".....boy or girl!
