    My mighty mouse fell off my desk this afternoon and no longer will turn on nor connect, is there anything I can do or am I just out of luck?

    Mm

    I suppose you've tried patting it, feeding it some fresh cheese and changed it's batteries and made sure the base is firmly attached. Otherwise it looks like it's now a piece of desk art. Best of luck.

    bring it to an apple store. See if they can open that lil guy up and fix it. If not, call apple care. If you got it less than a year ago they might be able to help you. You'd have to ask about the guidelines on your warranty.

    The only problem is Apple Care doesn't cover accidental damage. Even if they dropped the mouse on purpose it still would not be covered.

    I took the battery cover off and pulled upward the small rectangular piece under the circular sensor and now it works! Great success!

    Does this mean I can fix stuff? NOOO it only means that when something doesn't work, I tell myself that its ok to tear it apart and if i cant fix it, hey I am qualified to trash it.. So I dropped my might mouse on the hard floor 3 feet, then I panicked because my pet DIED..So I took it apart OF course ...yes it looks like the bottom outer ring needs to be glued back together but after prying it off and prying the side gently to pull main electronics out, i found that THE MAIN TOP CIRCUIT BOARD IS HELD DOWN WITH BLACK TABS WHICH POPPED OUT..JUST POP YOUR CIRCUIT BOARD BACK IN AND MAKE SURE MICRO SWITCH UNDER IT ALIGNS WITH THE OTHER PLASTIC PIECE WHICH IS TIED TO THE DOOR UNDER THE MOUSE THAT TURNS IT ON.. THEN...ALL FIXED... WOW YOU DID IT..congratulations.. YOU ARE A TECH...If that doesnt fix it..oh well..store is just down the street. :)
