How to clean the Mighty Mouse's scroll ball
Authored by: sekrapa on Nov 25, '10 12:08:19PM

Tried all of the above with some degree of success. Was about to throw the mouse through the window when I tried holding the scroll wheel down and spraying inside with electrical cleaner. Some went in most went on my hand. Turned the mouse upside down and rolled the scroll wheel across A4 paper in figure of 8 motion. You could see the cleaner leaving a trail and then a little bit of black stuff came out. I kept doing figure of 8 movements on A4 paper until no more trail. Then I repeated the above on clean paper and more stuff came out. Left it to dry for 10 minutes then tried it out. As good as new.
