    Hey guys, I need some help...

    My mum came over while I was watching TV and said she dropped the mouse, and couldnt get it working again.

    There's the little metal bit which aides the sliding and power mechanism. This somehow fell off. Is it glued on? I cant see how else its secured on, but there seems to be no remains of any glue.

    Any ideas?

    See pic below apologies for the quality, stupid camera phone.

    I just took my Mighty Mouse apart to look at the underside. The metal thing is only there to provide tension so that the little door stays open or shut, and so that the clip at the end of the mouse stays shut. Glue it back on with the fold facing up and the ring at the bottom on a slight incline.

    hi Katie, Sorry about your mouse. I am a new member and can not seem to figure out how to start a new message forum? Can you direct me so I can post my problem? Thank you in advance for you help.

    Go to the subforum and click "new thread"



    to OP, in the pic, you have the metal thing topside facing down. The little plastic bit should be facing down when it's all put back together again.

    just wait for it to dry completely before using it so it doesn't get glued into one position! :eek:

    Mine did the EXACT same thing today.

    Just glue it with a SMALL amount of PVC cement. Works like a charm now. :)
