    Well yesterday i bought a mx revolution, now i am happy with it, i love the looks and alle the buttons, except.... the scroll wheel, it makes allot of sound... does every mx revolution do that or is mine broken ? Also when i scroll, for example: i scroll downwards and i stop, the scroll automaticly pushes the mouse a bit upwards?

    for the one that would like to hear it: you can hear the sound here, www.mladenz.com/Film1.mov


    thank you.

    Something you could do is to take the mouse apart. This is what I'm assuming the inside of the mouse looks like, so if it is different, put it back together and really exercise the scroll wheel or post a picture of the inside.

    Be very careful with the scroll wheel, don't lose any of the springs. The scroll wheel should come out easily on some kind of carriage, and there will be 2 springs. One on the right side, and one that has one end anchored in the carriage, and one end that goes underneath the inside of the scroll wheel. Bend this second spring down more, and this should reduce the noise level. Granted, it will also provide less resistance against the scroll wheel.
