    Hi: I'm not sure when I bought this Mouse but it has not been a year. It was clean, no dirt or dust, the ball was ok. I used alcohol to clean it and then I found out you should not do that. There suggestion was to oil it but placing it in your hands for a few minutes. Did that, still no movement with the ball. Oh, it will go but not where I want it to. Darn.

    My GE scroll mouse is also less than a year old, probably less than 6 months old and will not go where I want it to. The mouse will not scroll to the right very easily. I have to attempt to make big circles with it several times to trick it to going to the right. Hate it!

Using Brother Printer HL-2040, not so many pages printed, but have some dot in pages about 3 black dots and some fade letters. what should i do to clean drum?


Remove the cartridge and look carefully at the rubber roller. You have debris stuck on the roller that needs to be removed. Get a cotton ball and dab some rubbing alcohol on it. Then run the cotton ball back and forth over the rubber roller making sure to use a clean section of the cotton ball each time. Now advance the rubber roller and repeat with a new alcohol cotton ball. Do this until you made it all the way around the rubber roller. Allow to dry for 10 minutes and then insert the cartridge back into the machine.

My mouse is messing up when i try to move it den its like a wall blocking it from moveing but if i shake it it can go bye help me asap


I am guessing by the nature of your problem that this is not an optical mouse, but one with a roller ball inside. On the bottom there is a wheel-like door with a hole in the center that holds the ball in. Turn this wheel counter clockwise and remove it. Remove the ball. Carefully with a dry cotton swab clean off the little wheels inside which record the movement of the ball. You may need to stick your finger in there to hold the wheel in place so the cotton swab can knock the gunk off. Take care to not let the gunk drop into the inner workings of the mouse, but if some does, it is not a tragedy, your mouse should start working like normal after the wheels are cleaned.

Optical track ball is sticking. How clean it and what to avoid?


An "optical" mouse has *NO* track-ball.

If you do have a mouse with a track-ball, then rotate the "ring" that holds the track-ball inside the mouse, to "unlock" the ring. Remove the ring. Look inside the mouse. You'll see two rollers.
Look for accumulated "gunk" in a ring at the center of each roller. Gently scrape each roller, to clean it. Re-insert the mouse. Re-insert the ring. Rotate it, to "lock" the ring into place.

The scroll wheel began malfunctioning a little at a time and now will not work at all. Will an internal cleaning help? How do I disassemble it?


dear,

yes, u need internal cleaning. So, see the ball side of the mouse and there the arrows or some sign willl show you how to move in rotation to clean it...mostly it is anticlockwise.. 
open it and then put the ball out..clean the ball too.
When u clean the ball then see inside the ball area and you will find the two nos. of roller inside. one is responsible for horizental movement and the 2nd one is for vertical movement. the will probably have dust rapped around them.. clean it carefully because if you push hard it will be the result of broken clips that hold them.
if you can remove the screw backside will allow you perfect cleaning but keep in mind there are two connecting clips infront of the click buttons that hold the front part of mouse...
do it carefully,
goodluck...

hope it will fix the issue so dont forget to rate it...

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.

Pearl roller ball


It might be a case where the track ball has some dirt or debris underneath it. First, turn the device off. Next, press down firmly on the track ball while at the same time rolling it in every direction. Hopefully that will knock loose any debris. Another tip to try is to wet your thumb with a little water and do the same thing.

If those two options don't work, you may try taking out the track ball and blowing out the slot with some compressed air. Below is a link that shows how to remove and clean the track ball:

Roller ball will not work down.


Cleaning the roller ball with a lint free cloth seems to work pretty well. Lock the hand held and then just go to town on the roller ball with the lint free cloth.

Roller ball


Same problem, wouldn't scroll down. Lifted the ring pulled out the rollerball and cleaned it with alchohol. Used a cotton swab, soaked it pretty good and rolled it around a bit. Set it back in and it worked like new. Watch how you take it out so you can put it back in the same way.
