    Hi,

    My mighty mouse stopped scrolling (it does this every once in a while), so I grabbed my iKlear cleaning cloth and scrubbed the scroll ball to get it to work again.

    It started to scroll again, but the ball got jammed down.

    It looks like it's kind of pushed to the left side, leaving a nice crack open for stuff to get it.

    What should I do to fix this, or should I take it to the Apple store (seems kind of silly to bother them about a mouse, though)?

    If you're wondering why the scroll ball is blue, it's because of this cloth I use to unjam the scroll ball :D:

    sounds like you may have pushed the ball past the rollers inside?! :confused: can you get anything in there to push it up again?

    I think if I open it, but it's glued together and it'd void the warranty :(

    Should I just go to the Apple store, and if I do should I make an appointment or just show up?
