Razer Viper Scroll Issue + Loose Buttons

Hello. I have been using my Razer Viper (RZ01-0255) for around a year and a half now. Recently I started getting issues related to the scroll wheel. Scrolling down sometimes scrolls up and vice versa. Other times it scrolls too far or it isn’t registered at all. I updated Windows, updated the firmware, the mouse is connected directly to the PC and closing Synapse or reinstalling the drivers doesn’t resolve the problem.

 

Another issue is the build quality. Over time the buttons got loose and started rattling.

Can you PM me a short video using Google Drive so I can have a closer look at the issue? Include the serial number of your mouse and a copy of your receipt so I can check our options as well. Thanks!

Hey everyone, I've been using the Razer Viper 8KHz mouse for about six months now, and I've run into some issues with the scroll wheel. It's skipping around and lacks consistency, which is a real pain. On top of that, I have to really press down hard for it to register a click.

I was initially stoked to get this mouse, but now it's a total disappointment. If I can't find a fix within the next week, I think it might be time to switch to a new mouse - and it probably won't be from Razer. Any advice would be appreciated!

I’m also having issues with my Viper Mini scroll wheel button. It misses around 60% of the clicks. Blowing air into the scroll wheel area makes it work well but after a few scrolls and clicks the problem returns. It is very disappointing that this sort of issue happens to a product of a brand such as Razer, which is around for so long. It is even more frustrating because I love the shape and size of the mouse, the only issue being the apparent poor quality of the scroll wheel button which shows the described behavior with just a few months of use.

I bought the Viper Quartz, wired, back in June (6  months ago). And I’m super bummed that when I booted up this morning the scroll wheel is suddenly not working. The click still registers but no scroll. I take really good care of my equipment, its very clean. I tried everything Reddit has suggested and no luck :/ 

I will not be buying another Razer Mouse. 

I have been having the same issue with Razer Viper 8KHz Ultralight 

Uss
