How to clean the Mighty Mouse's scroll ball
Authored by: jstap on Nov 09, '09 10:13:00PM

I had the problem that it the scroll ball would not respond when I wanted to scroll down, but the good news is...I agree with everyone's methods - tried them all. The main thing to emphasize is that for success it wont necessarily come straight away...for me it was over 3 nights, each time rubbing with alcohol (or hydrogen peroxide) with the mouse upside down onto a wet lint free cloth, rubbing in all directions (ie circles, one direction, 90 degrees, 180 degrees - do them alll!) and then drying with lint free cloth. I was getting desperate, thinking its not going to work for me - everyone else had success but not me - I kept at it though, rub really really hard, press that ball right down into the ball housing, pay attention to the dirt that appears on the ball (remove it) and maybe for you, like me, after 3 nights of trying for (10 mins a time) begins to work again. just keep at it - it will work again!
