Question about Microsoft ARC Mouse

1 Answer

Scroll wheel stopped turning, seems to be hanging up due to an alignment problem. How can I open it to take a look inside?

Scroll wheel not working on a Microsoft Bluetooth 5000 mouse. It barely rolls. Does anyone know how to "crack" it open so I can look inside. Maybe I can repair what seems to be an alignment problem.

If your scroll wheel turns but you don't feel the 'notches' it is most likely stripped. I've repaired my Logitech, and based on what I saw inside, I doubt that it's an alignment issue.

If it's stripped, and the hexagonal end of the wheel's axle that fits into the receptor has lost its hex shape, I have a perfect fix.

I tried gluing it, but that only lasted as long as the glue. What I did instead was remove the wheel, thread a thin rubber band through the receptor, pull the rubber band tight and then reinstall the wheel. Once tension on the rubber band was released, it expanded again, making a tight friction fit of the wheel's axle and the receptor.

Hope that helps.

If my alignment is good why do my tires keep eating from the inside


Alignment is the left - right alignment of the front wheel. If you let go of the steering wheel and the car travels in a straight line it is aligned.

Camber however is the tilt of a wheel and its tire on the axle. Ideally the tire should be perpendicular to the road surface (most amount of tire on the road as possible). However if there is a camber on the wheels, in your case it seems there is one inwards, then the alignment may be correct but the vehicle will be running more on the inside of the tires hence your loosing rubber more on the inside.

I hope this helps

Sounds more like a tie rod end is bad. Try a reliable shop that specializes in front end repair (any place but FIRESTONE). The tire wear could be due to the loose tie rod end throwing the car out of alignment.

Hand wheel is stuck


hi there,
well,stuck up hand wheel, is due to mechanical obstruction inside machine,bushing on shafting need to oil,and on handwheel bushing near clutch there is oil port there. since hand wheel are connected to cam shaft with set of gears and pulley is coupled to motor pulley,and other linkage under bobbins,shuttle race etc,broken gears are most common causes of stuck up handwheel,we can consider also the brush carbon,when worn out and damage the rotor commutator brush.if you can open the cover of motor below side of handwheel,you can see the pulley and motor assembly.also on top of machine there an opening to see the top gear assembly,this should be done by service technician.try to bring to nearest service center if still under warranty claim this for lesser maintenance cost.have a nice day,don't forget to rate me.thank's.

The metal spinner piece inside seems to be out of alignment.


When you say out if alignment, does it move up and down inside the tub. If it seems to be hanging down, then most likely a shock is broken underneath. If you can lift the metal basket up and down and hear a clunk sound the the rear bearing may be out.

One wheel wont turn


Turn, I assume you mean turn right and left?

Yes, that arm is likely the tie rod. There is no pin that can be replaced, the unit needs to be replaced.

If it is the outside tie rod end, you have an easy job ahead of you. Cost about $30 or so. You'll need a front end alignment.

If it is an inside rod end, you should replace your rack. Cost around $100. You'll need a front end alignment.

Have fun!
