Mr. Clean, printer paper and a toothpick
Authored by: bbell2000 on Dec 30, '09 10:03:41AM

I could scroll up, but not down. I tried the Apple upside-down trick and that did nothing. I dampened a paper towel with a drop of Mr. Clean and rolled it all around. That didn't fix the scrolling, but it did start loosening a bunch of gunk. So I carefully scraped out as much as I could with a couple of sharp toothpicks. That fixed scrolling up, but scrolling down was broken.

So I squirted a little Mr. Clean on clean printer paper, rolled the ball around a little on the wet paper, then rolled it really hard on dry paper. I'm not even going to try to describe the crud that came out of that thing. After doing this a few more times, it's working smooth as a baby's bottom.
