    Well, I bought my first (very lovely) Mac a couple of months ago, then decided to buy the wire less Mighty mouse to lose the annoying cord. Now the Wireless version has decided it won't scroll up, only down and left and right.

    Can anyone help before I throw it at the wall ;) :D

    Grab a piece of paper, flip the mouse over, and press the mouse down so that the pressure is on the scroll ball. Pressing firmly, roll in all directions for 30-45 seconds.

    Yep. Get a can of compressed air and blow away! You have some dirt under the scroll ball is all.

    tobefirst, thanks, that worked a treat, i'm now fully scrolling again.

    Tallest Skil, I'll get a can in stock for future problems.

    Apologies for the simplicity of my 1st post on here, I'll try to find something more challenging next time ;)
