How to clean the Mighty Mouse's scroll ball
Authored by: davidrc on Sep 01, '12 07:08:46AM

I FINALLY DISCOVERY A WAY TO GET BALL WORKING FINE AGAIN:

Things I used:
- isopropanol spray, those ones specifically intended to clean LCD computer screens.
- a clean piece of white paper
- a piece of soft cloth

Steps:
1) Give one short shot of spray over the ball. (Just one short shot! Don't get your mouse drowned! :-))
2) Turn mouse upside down and roll the ball for 5-10 seconds in circular movements. The pressure you need to put on this opertation is the same you use when you "click" the ball.
3) Dry the ball (and surrounding ball area) with the soft cloth

That's it. My scroll came back to work again like a charm.

I have been using this mouse for years with this problem. If I knew the solutions was so easy I would not gone so angry a lot of times!

Report if it worked for you too!
