    Mighty Mouse problem!!!
    Hi my scroll wheel suddenly stopped working - but not completely. It allows me to scroll up but not down. Which is great when I'm at the bottom of a website and want to go back up....but not so great at the beginning. Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks guys!!

    This should fix it

    Basically turn the MM upside down and rub the scroll ball vigerously with a soft damp not wet cloth

    I had the same thing happen to mine.. except i couldn't scroll up, only down. Went into a mac store and they told me to do the same thing as you guys have done except that i should use one of those alcohol swabs from a med kit.

    Sometimes I just blow on mine and the little bit of moisture and moving it around fixes it. Not really a big deal, everything gets dirty and needs to be maintained.

    Meh, it's not that big a deal to clean: it doesn't need it often and only takes a few seconds to clean. I can usually get it working by just rubbing it vigorously in my palm.

    I don't want to change because I love the design and the fact that it's warrantied 3 years under my Applecare plan.
