    • Before you continue, turn off the mouse using the slide switch underneath the mouse.

    • Before disassembling the mouse, first try scrubbing the mouse ball with a toothbrush and isopropyl alcohol. Be sure to get the bristles between the ball and the housing as this will help remove dirt and dust that is clogging the rollers inside.

    • You can also try blowing into the "ball hole" with a can of compressed air.

Conclusie

Allow the mouse to dry for a few minutes before turning it back on to test it.

In order to clean perfectly the scrollball, you can hold the mouse upside down, and roll very quickly the scrollball on a white A4 papersheet (As if you wanted to colour the papersheet with the scrollball). Normally, you'll see some grey stripe of dust on the paper sheet!

Wow - Ludal's advice actually worked! I'm amazed. Paper -- just a plain sheet of paper.

I can't believe I just found this post in 2015, gotta say thank you for saving $53 bucks!

I actually did both things but I used one of those wipes for eyeglasses which have alcohol in them after rubbing it on paper. Worked great.

Thanks a loit. Even in 2020 it helped ;-)
