MacSense UM-200R mouse-scoll wheel stopped working
I've been using the mouse for about a week and the scroll wheel worked just fine. Now, all of a sudden, it doesn't work. It is still lit up (blue), but give me no motion. Did I inadvertently change a setting on my Mac or on the mouse, or did it just give up on me?

Disconnect the mouse from the computer and turn it upside down. The screws to disassemble the mouse are under the pads on the bottom of the mouse. When you disassemble the mouse, you will find that the scroll wheel axle is gummed up, and the interruptor wheel is probably dirty. Use an old tooth brush and alcohol to clean the scroll wheel components, and let the components dry. You can use glue to re-attach the pads after you have reassembled the mouse.
Mine would work fine until I turned on my wireless headphones...then the mouse would move a little stop.....move a little....then stop.
I made sure my headphones were on.
I turned off the mouse, moved the mouse reciver to a USB port on the front of my computer (the mouse reciver and the headphone receivers were next to each other on the back of the computer). I turned the mouse back on.
The computer imediately gave me the "installing USB driver" notification.
When it was complete....both played nicely together...no more problems.
Hi, I believe you have to clean your mouse. that's no joke. You have to unscrew it and and clean out al the parts with a toothbrush and tooth-pic.. If that does'nt work. replace mouse with optic mouse.
Turn mouse off, get a clean sheet of paper, rub mouse wheel on paper on a smooth hard surface - this will clean any dirt preventing scrolling. Works for Blackberry trackballs as well - but be careful with scratching the screen.
If you set the mouse wheel to one page at a time for the scroll wheel and install the FF add-on SmoothWheel the scroll wheel will work fine, you can even use the FF add-on to change the scroll amount even more (with the SmoothWheel add-on install in FF the "one page at a time" isn't really one page it goes by the add-ons rules, which is 1/7's page.
