Introducing YippieMove '09. Easy email transfers. Now open for all destinations.

The articles here at PWW tend to be a bit more in depth than this, but I thought this might be a good tips that many would benefit from. As you’ve probably figured out by now, both Alex and I are Mac users, and just adore the design of Apple’s products. As a result of this, both Alex and I bought the Wireless Mighty Mouse to use with our laptops. A couple of days ago my Mighty Mouse stopped scrolling up. It was weird, because I could still scroll down and horizontally. Since this was very annoying, it became the first thing on my priority list to fix.

After some googlin’ and reading on a couple of Mac forums, I found the solution. Press down the ‘scroll ball’ hard. This sounds like a weird thing to do, but after checking some other sites that said the same thing, I tried it. After pressing the ‘scroll ball’ down quite hard the scroll feature started working again.

    I guess I’ll have to use mine more in order for it to break first :D

    Mate, your tip didn’t work for me but I read somewhere else that they can get dust on them so I put my lips to the scroll nipple and blew… 2 seconds later she worked again!! Yay…

    Pressing the “scroll ball” down quite hard worked for me too.

    This solution is absolutely sound crazy! However, it worked for me.
