razer naga 2014, was having tracking issues forever so i finally decided to clean it with 70% alcohol.
it fixed it! but then 2 minutes later the tracking completely died. everything else about the mouse still works perfectly.
i think i used too much alcohol and didn't wait long enough for it to dry and shorted something?

is there any hope in bringing it back to life?

it might just be a temporary issue, and some alcohol still needs to dry out in the mouse. leave it unplugged for a while while leaving it to dry out. otherwise, a new mouse is probably in order.

i cracked it open. does this solder look connected? the one looks weird. i tried touching a screwdriver to it, but that didn't do anything.

i looked at the laser through my phone camera, the laser is not turning on at all.
i'm not sure how to know if it's dead, or disconnected.
