Not worth replacing the ball.. consider buying a laser type to replace it.. ( no moving parts and not mechanical) much more reliable..

Mouse Balls ! How to clean a cranky mouse


This applies to ball type mice not the optical type.

If your mouse has stopped moving the cursor but the buttons still work or it isn;t as smooth as it used to be then this tip should help fix that. A lot of people will go out and buy a new mouse when all they needed to do was clean it.

To clean your mouse all you need is some rubbing alcohol, paper towels, cotton swabs and sometimes a pair of tweezers.

First thing to do is open the cover on the bottom and take the ball out. Use your thumbs to twist the cover and it will unlock. Set these aside we will clean them last.

Now look in the cavity and you will see a couple of wide rollers. These are what the ball rubs against and these in turn are used to generate the position signals to your computer. When they get dirty they won't roll and the result is that the mouse doesn't think it has moved. When you look at the rollers a dirty one looks like the photo.

The grey can be a a few things usually a mix of oils and dust. And sometimes it is lint. Soak one of the swabs in alcohol and wipe the roller. You will have to clean a spot then rotate the roller to clean a new area. When the stripe or buildup is gone then go to the next one. This takes a minute or so per roller so it is quick. If the buildup is stubborn you may need to scrape it off then clean.

The next thing to clean is the ball using a paper towel with alcohol. Just give it a good wipe and let it dry. Next clean the cover and the bottom of the mouse body. You may want to clean the surface you use the mouse on as well.

Replace the ball, replace and lock the cover in place and you are done.

The mouse should work normally now. If it still doesn;t it can be due to wear or lint on the internal sensors. However cleaning the mouse like this fixes it about 99.99% of the time.

The mouse that comes with my Dell computer (2 yrs old) doesn't move smoothly on the mouse pad and is difficult when trying to zero in on a speciific site. Thanks for your help.


The solution may depend on the type of mouse you are using. If it is a ball mouse, you may need to clean the ball, because dirt can throw off the sensors in the mouse. If it's a PS2 mouse connection (the round connector, not USB) try using a different mouse if you have one around. If it is a laser mouse, try plugging it into a different USB port on the computer, or try using a different mouse pad. If it is a wireless mouse, it may need new batteries, or may need to be synced up with the receiver again.

My mouse pad is erraatic and jumpy, wont go where ...


If you are using a track ball mouse then service it properly and also remove the ball and clean it

If you are using a optical mouse than change the pad or keep any book under it if again your mouse doesn't work buy a new one

Mouse only moves up and down not side to side


If it is a PS/2 mouse with roller ball, the horizontal wheel sensors are gone. No sense in trying to fix this roller ball PS/2 mice are really cheap. As far as the USB mouse you may have to install a driver. Depends on the operating system.

My mouse cursor does not move when I move my finger across my mouse.


I'm assuming you're moving the whole mouse, and not just using something like a trackpad. Pick up your mouse, and turn it upside-down. If there's a ball, grab a can of compressed air, squirt it into the edges around the ball, and roll the ball around. If there's a piece of glass, there's supposed to be a red light, called a laser, coming out of that. If there is no light, you'll need to get your mouse replaced.

Mouse


You can remove the roller for cleaning by untwisting the locking cap on the bottom of the mouse. Usually you have to clean the shafts that are turned by the ball. There are two, one for left-right, one for up-down, and there is a spring loaded roller. There is a gummy buildup on these that prevents smooth operation. I use a sharp knife to gently scrape it off. If the shafts are still sticky you may have to dissassemble the entire mouse. Hardly worth the effort unless you have some kind of high powered mouse with special features. BUT, this is not a symptom of a new mouse.

If it is new and does not work, you should consider returning it.
Also, consider an optical mouse. They do not have this problem.
