Has the scroll ball on your mighty mouse gotten stuck yet? I searched the apple forums for the best way to clean it and get the ball working properly again. There were posts describing how to simply wipe the ball with a moist cloth, to completely disassembling the mouse by cutting it open with a knife. Well, wiping it didn’t work and I wasn’t about to start cutting the mouse open. My solution? I flipped the mighty mouse upside down, and blew compressed air into the ball cavity as I depressed the ball itself. Do this several times, rotate the ball and hit it with some more air. See if that doesn’t get you scrolling again. It worked for me.

  1. Nice. I’m gonna try this out right now. Seems to be a problem with all the Might Mice I’ve used.
