How to clean the Mighty Mouse's scroll ball
Authored by: xrist on Apr 26, '10 09:06:52AM

I agree, when all else fails, and it's only a matter of time, because under the scroll ball are 4 tiny magnetic wheels that control the mouse direction (up down left right), And as more and more crud builds up on them with time the scroll ball won't rotate them and scrolling in one or more directions is lost.
Here's a great video showing you how to pull the mouse apart and clean them tiny things.

Be very careful that you put them back in the same orientation otherwise you will lose the scroll function.
