Help!! It'll scroll down, but not up. Have had it for like 4 months, so I don't think it needs cleaning. It's the bluetooth mighty mouse, by the way. Any ideas?

If your mighty mouse won't scroll then it's clogged with muck ! There's no magic solution, you just have to bite the bullet and clean it out. Here's how:

To clean your might mouse go here

I followed these instructions to the letter and now it works. It's little daunting and you need 2 pairs of hands at one point and non metallic tweezers if you have any cos the fiddly components are magnetic (I didn't, so there air was blue!!! ). You also need superglue and an elastic band, so have them at the ready.

Once you get in there and see the muck, you'll realise why it's not working properly.
