    I am having some scrolling issue problem with my mighty mouse. I can scroll up, but not down. Is there a simple fix or will I need to return it? Thanks

    Before you return it turn it upside down, push the scroll wheel in and spin it a bit. That should fix it. If not then return it.

    yet another issue

    I also have issues with my Mighty Mouse

    I don't know if I can still return it but I doubt it..

    I had a big rant on this site a while back about how it wouldn't scroll up anymore...needless to say, I was pissed.

    But I got used to it, then yesterday it worked again, scrolling up down, and left to right...yipeee!!!!

    Then a few hours later, it stopped down.....arggggg...how would it switch like that?? first no up scrolling but it scrolled down,, then no down scrolling, but it scrolls up?????

    Son of a ........

    I hate this mouse, is it possible to open it and clean it or what?? I need some trouble shooting techiniques for this problem or I'm gonna toss it off my balcony....

    My 5th Mighty Mouse just busted. At least this one lasted two months before crapping out -- the other 4 only lasted a week or two. I wish the Apple store had more of a variety when it comes to mouses -- I really wanted that white Kensington mouse with the scroll pad thing. Now that I'm used to the Mighty Mouse, I'm spoiled with the scroll wheel -- it's a great mouse, I just wish it would LAST.

    Seems like we sure have a lot of these mighty mouse and the problem thread. Why cant Apple make a decent mouse? I hate to admit it but after 1.5 yrs on a microsoft intellimouse i would say apple should let Microsoft build a mouse for them. Why not? they have Intel making Cpu's now. Apples mice have allways left us wanting ,i dont just dont get it. Let Intel make the cpu,Microstink the mouse and let Apple do what it does best and thats the OS.:cool:

    My Mighty Mouse has stopped scrolling down from time to time, but per Apple's support page I turn it upside down and "scroll vigorously" with a damp rag and it takes care of it every time.

    I love the Mighty Mouse too much to get rid of it, just have to clean it from time to time.

    I think the upside-down-virgorous-scrolling trick is what made my mighty mouse last as long as it has, but it just doesn't work anymore. i wish it would have at least stopped scrolling up, scrolling down is what i need!

    I'm less excited about the Mighty Mouse that comes with my iMac after reading this thread.
