There should be a ring around the mouseball. This can be manuvered with a steakknife. Move the ring counterclockwise as you look at the bottom. This will release the ball. Take an old toothbrush and clean the 3 or 4 points that are built up with the dust. Replace the ball and the ring and you'll be all set. Thanks, Dana

Logitech mouse


If you are using windows, you should find "Mouse" in Control Panel where you will find options to configure mouse buttons. Enable the scroll wheel or something similar.

The "scroll wheel" is mechanical with sensors. Wheel has holes where light passes through it and sensors to convert motion either scroll up or down. If that sensor is no longer working, repairing it is more tedious (not a good idea).

Anyway, have you tried a different mouse (borrow from a friend)? Just to check if this is not an issue with your computer.

How can I make my new Logitech mouse scroll smoothly? All I can do now is use the side bar and move it down which takes an immense amount of time. When I scroll down, it jumps about 30 lines. H E L P


Did you install the mouse driver they provided? If so, there should be a SetPoint Settings item in your system tray. Open it and check the Pointer and Scroller Settings and try adjusting the Scrolling Size setting.

Ge wired mouse scroll wheel doesn't work


John:

The screws to open your mouse are hidden under the glide pads on the bottom of your mouse. remove the glide pads carefully and you'll see the screws. put the glide pads on with a non-permanent adhesive (like contact cement).

The scroller on the top of the mouse does not scroll the page


Go to your control panel of the computer. Click on the tab "Change mouse whell settings" If you do nto find such tab then search for that tab by puttin word "mouse" in the search box.
There you can change scrolling setting. If it doesn't work then remove the wire of your mouse, shut down computer.
Insert the wire and restart computer. This will surely work. If not then contact I'll give you other remedy.

Microsoft wireless mouse 1000 fix scroll wheel


I had a scroll wheel problem with my Microsoft Wireless Mouse 1000 and fixed it as follows.

With the corner of a sharp Stanley knife blade, I carefully peeled off the large pad at the back of the base of the mouse and removed the two screws that are hidden under it. Next I removed the screw located under the batteries. This allowed the top and bottom of the mouse to be separated. I cleaned out the inside with a small paintbrush and then sprayed a small amount of isoproplyl alcohol into the sensor at the right of the wheel. Now it's as good as new.

Apple mouse won't scroll down, how do you take apart to clean-no visable screws


I've had this issue as well.
Step 1) Get a clean piece of paper Step 2) Flip mouse upside down so the bottom is facing up and the mouse wheel is facing the paper. Roll the mouse on the paper up and down quickly, ensuring the wheel is in direct contact with the paper.
That should clean it. It's a known issue.

Fix scroller in mid of mouse


is this some old XP op sys? No PC actually stated,
no service tag model stated.
Generic answer.:
old PCs, with old PS2 mice.
it has a driver, if device manager tells you its ok, then why not
go to control panel , and see the word MOUSE.
click that and set the center button as you desiree.
using arrow keys does not reconfigure the mouse. btw.
support ends after 10 years, (about)
then click tab , WHEEL, and set it as needed.
or the mouse is dead, the wheel deep inside, loves to grow LENT
and the LENT blocks the optical wheel encoder inside.
and makes it fail. (all do this , this old, wait for it, bam. )
try a new mouse
clean yours (google how)
bUy a USB mouse, but XP hates USB so GET service pack3 for XP
and pray the USB like your new mouse but wait I may not.

Id go to goodwill (store) pick put out PC that came new with windows7
so you have support.
I think covered every possible way here, liking PC model. NO NOT REALLY., ill list them.
1: VIRUS INFECTED PC. most XP are, its loves to.
2: bad mouse
3: bad mouse driver.
4: bad setups in the mouse page.
