    I think my wireless mighty mouse which i bought about 5months ago is broken. Its not a major issue but it is something i highly enjoy and hope i can get it fixed. The scroll ball wont scroll down. It works in every other direction but it was a wierd all of the sudden type thing. It was working and then i went to take a shower and when i returned it didn't. I turned it off and back on again but that didn't help. Any other suggestions. I have the extended warranty on my mac pro which i bought at the same time as the mouse/keyboard will this be covered? please help!!

    Unplug the mouse. Take a clean damp cloth and rub in all direction on the rubber ball several times. Let it dry and plug it in - it should work.

    I have to do this every few months, I use my mouse for over 10 hours a day though:)

    Please! Please! Please! Search the forums first! This is a well known issue. Your mouse isn't broken or defective, just dirty. The design allows oil from your finger to mix with dirt and gum up the sensor wheels inside.
