Hello. my logitech G302 mouse had a left-click micro switch problem so i opened it and sprayed some dry contact cleaner (dry cleaner spray) into the micro switches (learned it from youtube).After that i assembled the mouse and plugged in ; now i have a bigger problem! I don't have curser now. it goes to the lower left corner, under the start ( windows ) button and i can't move it or even see it.when i click the mouse's left button, the start menu opens... .the LEDs of mouse blink and don't have the right lighting pattern of g302 .I removed logitech driver and the problem still there.I am 100% sure that i didn't damage anything inside the mouse. I'd appreciate any solution you could give me.PLEASE look at the videos of problem HERE .

What "dry cleaner" spray did you use?

Try another known working mouse on your computer. Another G302 if at all possible. Or at least a similar mouse as best you can obtain.

Try your G302 mouse on another known working computer.

Determine if the cursor and LED problems follow the mouse or stay with the host computer.

If the problems follow the mouse, the mouse may indeed be damaged somewhere you cannot see.

nice tips. I will test the mouse on another computer but i'm not able to provide another G302.Maybe i plugged in the mouse when its chipset was wet.This is the picture of the cleaner : View: https://imgur.com/SteXEFI

Not sure (full disclosure) what to suggest next.

However, I am a bit unsure about the Tuner 600 cleaner you applied....

Compare what you know about that product to other similar contact cleaners.

E.g. WD-40:

If the product you applied removes oxide and sulfur then who knows what the contents of that can may have done to then innards of the mouse.....
