Cabstone Wired Optical Mouse Teardown
Background and Identification
The Cabstone Wired Optical PC mouse utilizes a wired connection with a USB interface to control the PC it is paired with. Common repair needs in the Cabstone Wired Optical PC mouse include repair for the LED light and the USB cable. The mouse was sold alongside a Cabstone keyboard on Amazon.
Being an optical mouse, this device utilizes a light source (an LED) and a light detector to detect motion in relation to a surface. Optical mice don’t have any internal moving components and use a solid-state system. This allows the mouse to detect how it is being moved in the physical world and translate this to movement of the cursor on the PC’s display. Prior to optical mice, mechanical mice employed similar LED technology while also using mechanical components instead of just solid-state functionality.
The Wired Optical PC mouse has a curved exterior. It includes physical buttons and a scroll wheel. It is both black and gray in color and has the Cabstone logo on the top of the device. It is designed for use on a flat surface (like a table or desk) near the attached PC.
