I just took it apart and cleaned out the fuzz, but man I must say there has to be another mouse that scrolls let and right. Anyone heard of one? I love my macs but they are just coming around to designing things that can be taked apart and reassembled. This Mighty Mouse didn’t go back together too well. It works but the bottom won’t stay on.
Next time just use some compressed air to spray the gunk out. I’ve never pulled one apart, but you may need to use glue to make it stay together now that you have.
There was a pile of crap in there and no matter what I tried I couldn’t get it out. I have a dog with long frizzy hair (chow) so my situation may be somewhat unique. Plus, after taking it apart I found a sealed box around the ball. Can’t see that there would be anywhere or that large a pile if fuzz to go. It seems to be staying put for now and it works. Hopefully next time around they’ll make it easier to take apart and clean.
Do a google search, there are tons of tutorials on Youtube that explain how to properly clean the mighty mouse and its scroll ball.
I’ve read ‘em all. I think we could take “Google it” for granted by now.
