    I went ahead and disassembled my wireless mighty mouse, unscrewed the scroll ball from the lid of the mouse and found a ton of lint and cr@p that has been living in here for quite some time. cleaned it all up, put it together, now all of the little rollers spin freely, great.

    I go to put everything together, including the 2 ribbon cables, mouse snaps together, fire it up, mouse works fine, i can click, side buttons work, but the scroll does not work at all now. left to right use to be fine, it was just up and down. now nothing works.

    any idea what could have gone wrong? did i forget something?

    sorry, i forgot to imply that. i have taken it back apart multiple times, checked and double checked to make sure the rollers are in place (all 4 move freely), cabling is secure, flat, and straight.

    i dont see any other issues. i am under the assumption this is an electronic failure issue where something died which is most likely not going to be replaceable.
