Question about Apple Mighty MA086LL/A Mouse

1 Answer

Mighty Mouse has stopped scrolling down. Can't figure out why.

My cordless mighty mouse will not scroll down. It scrolls in all directions except down. Took back off and cleaned with Q tip and rubbing alcohol. Reconnected bluetooth settings. Still doesn't scroll down. What's the problem?

All things on my imac desktop is bigger by 2x


You may have
- Adjusted the screen resolution inadvertently (go to the System Preferences > Displays panel to fix this, adjust the screen resolution to a higher setting, i.e. toward the bottom of the list)
- Inadvertently used "screen zoom" by holding control and doing a scroll with the mouse trackball (or a 2-finger scroll with the mighty mouse). To fix this, try holding control and scrolling the mouse's scroll wheel down. (Or swiping downward with 2 fingers on the mighty mouse if you are using one of those)
- Accidentally adjusted the size of the icons in the finder. You can fix this by going to the finder (click the desktop) and hit command J (or just go to View > Show View Options). This will allow you to adjust the size of the icons on the desktop, or any other window.

Apple wireless mouse will not scroll down. Any suggestions on fixing this problem?


remove the battery cover and batteries, spray compressed air through the two plastic lids (use precision hose included), so that air passes into and clean dust and dirt.
Then clean the scroll ball with a piece of cotton cloth moistened with water.

Top scroll ball dose not work


Easy fix. Turn your mighty mouse upside down. With a dry cloth, preferably microfiber or a lens cloth, rub the wheel vigorously back and forth to clean out any dust that may be stuck in the mouse.

Apple mouse scrolling problem


Your little ball is dirty. Q-tip and rubbing alcohol to clean it up. You will need to move it around with one finger while cleaning it. Be sure to disconnect it first.

Any solution for apple wireless mouse not able to scroll-happens frequently-I do all the usual things, ie: cleaning scroll ball with a toothbrush, alcohol, etc. Works for a while, sometimes an hour, day,...


if you're having issues with a "mighty mouse" let me tell you that no matter how well you clean it, the problem will continue. If you can't get a free replacement from Apple, the best experience for us at my office has been to move to Logitech bluetooth mice. Logitech V270 Cordless Optical Bluetooth Mouse works great and you have all the functions you need like scrolling, right and left click, etc.

Mighty mouse not working


Same thing happened to me. I finally ended up with blue tooth telling me it could not detect my mouse and it had to find it. You might check your mouse settings in blue tooth.

Mighty Mouse won't scroll down


I have had the same problem on occasion.  I found that if I turn the mouse over and tickle it...  It works!  Only kidding...
Turn the mouse over, push down hard so the ball is depressed, and move it vigorously in all directions.  That usually dislodges whatever is trapped inside.
