I just had an issue where scrolling up worked fine on my mouse, but scrolling down stopped working. I looked it up and found a fix. If you experience a problem with the scrolling wheel of a mighty mouse, turn it upside down and blow air onto the scroll wheel while scrolling it. It resolved my problem quickly.

I usually turm mine upside down in a fit of rage and rub the scroll ball all over the desk until it works again. I'll try your method next time!

I swear after going through 2 of those Mighty Mouses; those things are worthless. I refuse to purchase another one of those things.

I'll play with mine for at least a year. It might be three if I decide to get the Applecare.

I have to address this every couple of months due to the kids gaming. Just douse a cue-tip with rubbing alcohol and roll it around the ball if you don't have any compressed air around.

Go do your self a huge favor and buy a targus bluetooth mouse. Ive had 3 mighty mouses and all three, the scroll stoped working. The targus has a great touch scroll and you don't loose the expose button!

Still having issues with the scroll wheel. Now I take a sheet of paper and turn the mouse upside down, press down on the paper with the wheel and spin it around. My scroll wheel works now, and I got to see the junk that was in the wheel. I am seriously contemplating the magic mouse.

Thread jack below....
How do you make the thumb buttons on a normal mouse act as back/forward buttons for Mac?
