Forum Question: Mouse Won’t Scroll

After months of only scrolling down, the standard mouse on my imac won’t scroll in any direction.
I did the upside down thing regularly but eventually nothing worked.
Is it possible to dis-assemble or is there some trick you know of?
Thank you.

    Which mouse is it? The new Magic Mouse, or the old Mighty Mouse? You can try cleaning the old Mighty Mouse. Compressed air is one way. I hated the old Mighty Mouse for this reason. I eventually stopped trying to use the scroll ball at all. I’m so glad this isn’t a problem with the Magic Mouse.

      A surprisingly useful technique I discovered for cleaning the track ball on the old mighty mouse is to invert the mouse and roll the ball around on a regular pad of paper. I often will see a chunk of dirt left behind on the the paper. Hope this helps!
