    Fucking all my friends warned me about it ... well after 4 or 5 months the damn thing won't scroll up only down ... Does Apple cover anything like this as far as a manufactures warranty ? :hsugh:

    if that doesnt work, you can take it apart pretty easily and its brand new again.

    Oh .. so this seems like a pretty common problem with the scroll ball ? Any write ups on this cleaning process ?

    this happens to me from time to time. all the bullshit posted above hasn't worked either. except when i took compressed air and blew on the sides of the ball while spinning it. now it works like a charm.

    Stop using a shit mouse?


    Get a can of compressed "air", use the straw and spray directly into the scroll ball to remove dirt then follow the Apple instruction.

    EDIT: Look like Ive been beaten on compressed iar solution. :o
