Hi, does anyone know how to get into a mighty mouse?? My scroll wheel has stopped working and guess there must be a way of cleaning or poking about in there somehow.
Cheers, Andy.

I managed to clean mine by rolling the scroll wheel across an alcohol dipped Q-Tip. But I can tell you that the miserable thing will become gummed up again in a short time. The only effective way is by taking it apart and cleaning underneath the scroll wheel itself.

See the following U-Tube video which describes the process:

Brilliant, turning it upside down and scrolling it about on some A4 paper really works, little peices of dirt fall out, thanks very much for the tip, let's see how long it lasts.

All the best.
