How to clean the Mighty Mouse's scroll ball
Authored by: splodgecat on Jul 23, '06 11:13:05AM

I tried all these suggestions, and just couldn't get a downwards scroll to do anything other than smooth blank rolling with nothing happening on screen. The movement wasn't registering with the mechanism. I got so angry with it I pulled out my penknife and set to work. I completely gutted it, dismantled the scroll ball mechanism and found OUTRAGEOUS amounts of fluff and gunk tangled up and embedded in the four metal axles. Cleaned it up, carefully put it back together (using tape for the plastic ring that had to prised away from its glued position) and now I can scroll once more.

But my right click doesn't work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
