The scroll wheel on this gaming mouse has holes in it that the optical sensor uses to detect when the wheel is turning. If dirt or other foreign material covers the sensor or the holes, the scroll wheel will stop working or may only work intermittently. This guide will demonstrate how to open the mouse and take the wheel assembly apart for cleaning.

Stap 1 Scroll wheel  ¶ 

Use a thin blade to peel up the corners and remove the mouse feet. They re-adhere very well, so be careful to not damage them or get the sticky side dirty. Unscrew the three screws that are now visible. Gently pull apart the top and bottom halves of the mouse. They will be connected by a wire.
