How to clean the Mighty Mouse's scroll ball
Authored by: danno1 on Feb 02, '10 11:54:47PM

remember the days before mouse's had lazers and all that shit under the hood? and the track ball would collect dirt and you would have to remove it and scrape the crap off the rollers? that is exactly what is happening to the scroll balls on these new mouses, except the fix isnt as easy...

follow the pictures ( http://www.applematters.com/index.php/gallery/category/C4/ ) untill you get the mouse to pop open (a pocket knife works best, i also managed not to break anything) then skip ahead to the removal of the trackball. unscrew it, pick the shit off the mini rollers, and put everything back the way you found it.

my scroller hasnt worked for months, now it operates like i bought it yesterday.
