Question about Dell Wireless Keyboard Optical Mouse w0147

1 Answer

Wireless Dell mouse, wheel in middle, 2 buttons, black and silver.

Crazy mouse.
Wheel will not roll properly. I roll, roll, roll the wheel, and it rolls the page after ten or so rolls; does not want to roll. New batteries, and a reset of keyboard together with the mouse did not help. Do I need a new mouse; it's appx. four years old.

First try to reinstall the updated driver for your mouse. If this does not work, it could be that the mouse is worn out and you may need to replace it...

Do you have a mouse with a scroll wheel in the middle?

If so, open your internet browser. Press and hold the CTRL button and roll the mouse wheel up or down to get the proper zoom factor you want on your internet browser

I have an HP N3 optical mouse that was doing well until the other day when the middle little scrolling wheel stopped working. Can I fix it or do I have to buy something else? Thank you.


If the entire mouse stopped it probably time for new batteries. If it is just the wheel then it could be a driver issue or setting. If those are ok ie the middle button wasn't disabled somehow or your computer figured it only has a 2 button mouse then its hardware. That means its replacement time. It's possible the switch or the sensor for the wheel are dirty so if you want to you can take it apart and try cleaning.

Cannot use centerscroll wheel to click and pan


Your scroll mouse may not have a button built into the wheel.

Do try to push down on the wheel, though. Most (quality) modern mice have a button built in below the wheel that just takes a little extra pressure to use.

Scroll wheel doesn't work!


There is a design bug in the plastic shaft that connect through the optical encoder. If the wheel just spins and you can't feel "clicks" as it turns, it's very likely that the plastic shaft has worn down enough that it's not actually turning the encoder. The encoder also provides that clicking action; it's a single component. To fix it, take the mouse apart: 4 Phillips #00 screws located under the two black plastic adhesive feet (two under each screw) plus 3 screws (2 #0 Phillips, 1 T6 Torx) located inside the battery cover under the label on the edge with the Microsoft holographic seal. Just peel that edge of the label back to expose the three screws. Torx T6 goes in the middle.

After all 7 screws are removed, the cover removes easily. Locate the mouse wheel and notice the silver optical encoder component through which the mouse wheel shaft enters from the center. If you remove the wheel (gently), you'll see a hexagonal pattern in the shaft. This normally fits the encoder tightly, but wears out over time and use. To repair, take the wheel out and add a drop of superglue to the shaft to that the drop of liquid glue coats only the hexagonal tip all the way around. Do not allow the glue to get on any other part of the shaft or wheel. You don't want to use the glue to actually adhere it to the encoder; you only want to use the glue to add a small amount of thickness to the shaft. After about 30 seconds, use a clean paper towel and gently wick away the remainder and excess glue from the tip of the shaft. This should leave a very thin coat of superglue on the shaft. Allow the shaft to dry completely or use accelerator to speed the curing process. Once dry, attempt to re-insert the wheel into the optical encoder. It should fit tighter now, and still turn freely. If it's too tight, use a sharp knife and GENTLY scrape-off some of the glue on the tip of the gray plastic shaft.

Once you have the wheel shaft reinstalled and you got the clicking action back, you could stop here and re-assemble the mouse. Or, to make the fix last longer, take a toothpick and an extremely small drop of superglue and add it to the outside-facing center of the optical encoder where the shaft is visible. Place the micro drop on the gray shaft, then very carefully work the liquid to the point where it makes contact with ONLY the black collar of the optical encoder. This should glue the gray shaft to the black collar. If you go too far and glue the black collar to the silver casing of the encoder, you may permanently damage the encoder, so be damn careful when applying the glue. After it's dry, the wheel should still turn, click and function normally. Reassemble the mouse and you're done. I've successfully repaired 6 Arc Mice using this method. I used Loctite Low-Bloom Superglue and 712 Accelerator. Good luck.

Change batteries


This is a deceptive little beastie. As you look at the mouse, you will see that the front approximately 1/3 consists of the left and right mouse buttons and the scroll wheel. The rest appears to be a one piece cover with the black area with the GE logo in the middle. There's the tricky part. The black part with the Logo is the housing for the USB plug in part (so you can keep it with the mouse when transporting it). The rest of that (silver on my mouse) is the battery cover. You open it up by gripping the little raised line on each side of the cover and pull backwards while holding the front by the black area under the mouse buttons. The cover (only the silver part, the black is attached to the rest of the mouse) will slide backwards and Voila! There are your batteries.

Where's the battery????


If you consider the button and wheel side to be the front -
There is a silver oval button at the back of the mouse. Press it and the top of the mouse just behind the mouse buttons will pop open.
It takes 1 AA battery with the negative side going to the front.

Microsoft Wireless Optical mouse 2.0 Sticky central wheel


I just took mine apart to fix same problem, works much better but not sure for how long.

Quite simple to dismantle the unit.

Take the battery cover off, remove batteries.
There is a small screw in the middle of the battery cavity, you will need a very small Phillips head screwdriver.
Gently ease the base (holding circuit board) from the top shell
The wheel unit can be gently eased out of its cradle, use the small screwdriver to pop it out, watch out for the small spring between base and wheel unit, don't lose it
You can disconnect the wheel unit from the circuit board by unhooking the small plug connector

Now defluff, then clean the wheel - I used a tiny amount of turps on a cloth, anything similar should work. If you look closely the reason the wheel won't roll smoothly is that the gel ring on the wheel is too close and rubs at the front and back of the cradle. Once grime builds up, this problem makes the wheel unusable. Roll the wheel back and forth along a clean surface once cleaned, should start rolling freely again.

I also unscrewed the top shell from the mouse buttons (all one piece, pinch the plastic pegs in the centre of the shell together to release) and cleaned the whole unit up before putting it back together

Don't forget the spring when putting the wheel unit back. When screwing the base to the top shell make sure there is no play between the two parts before you put the batteries back in, mine was a bit tricky to get tight again but worked fine second attempt
