If reseting and upgrading do not work, you might have physical damaged. There are tiny little ribbon cables inside the unit, which are about the width of a hair strand, and damage very easily when pressed too hard - which is something everyone does the first time that scroll wheel doesn't work. There really isn't much you can do, other than getting it repaired.

Jsut make sure you tried to install the correct updater file first - LOCATED HERE - although it should not affect the scroll wheel - however, you it doesn't hurt to try!

Hope This Helps!

What I'm trying to scroll, won't scroll as fast as I want it to.

If you click the start menu, then click control panel, and select mouse, you will get a pop up window, one of the tabs at the top of this window is 'wheel' there you will see an option to change the number of lines the wheel will scroll with each notch
hope this helps.

Reset to factory settings blackberry curve

Whether you are ready to upgrade your blackberry, give it to someone else or throw it out all together, you should make sure that any personal data has been removed first. Here's an easy way to ensure that you are not throwing out, giving away, or selling a phone with your data still on it.

  • 1

    From your blackberry, scroll down to the options icon. (This is the icon shaped like a wrench) Push in the trackball or the scroll wheel to select this.

  • 2

    Once you are in the options menu, scroll down to the security option and press in the trackball or scroll wheel to enter into the security options menu.

  • 3

    Once in the security options menu, locate the general settings option and press in the trackball or scroll wheel to enter the general settings menu.

  • 4

    Great! Now you should be in the General Settings menu. At this point you can press the menu button on the blackberry. Its the button next to the green phone button. Once you press the menu button on the blackberry, you will see a menu come up. scroll to the "Wipe Handheld" option and press in the trackbacll or scroll wheel to confirm your selection. There will also be an option to remove all 3rd party applications. Check this option to remove those as well.

    3. Press and hold the Power button
    4. While holding the Power button, release the Resume button

    6. Release the Power button
    7. Press the Resume buttons four times
    8. Press the Power button to confirm the operation
    9. Turn off the printer

    Reset canon mp600 to factory setting (if the first procedure did not work)

    2. Use the Easy-Scroll Wheel or the right/left arrow to select Settings, and then press OK button.
    3. Use the Easy-Scroll Wheel or the right/left arrow to select Device settings, then press OK button.

    6. Press the HOME button to return to the Home Menu

    Final reset (If errors did not clear and or another error appears this will clear it)
    1. Press and Hold the Resume button and wait until the printer self restart.
    2. Release the Resume button when the printer restart
    3. Wait until the printer fully initialize and try printing again.

    That will solve it.

    Ipod nano 8GB doesn`t work

    Hold down the middle button and the top of the scroll wheel until you see the apple symbol. Keep holding the middle button then hold down the bottom of the scroll wheel. This will reset the iPod so that it will work. If the scroll wheel is still not working, take it to the place you purchased it or if it is in the area, find a local Apple Store and take it to them. They will be able to assist as well.

    Scroll wheel not working

    Make sure the hold button is not pressed. If it is not in hold or lock position, then reset the player. If that fails your only two software options left are firmware upgrade (Creative website) and recovery - Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

    If these fail, the player must be replaced.

    Scroll Wheel does not work with some programs.

    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.
