Broken imac mouse

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
Wow ... just like the old days. The white mouse that came with my imac a few months ago has begun behaving like the old one when it got fluffed up. Am I able to pull it apart and clean it or is it a gonner?

    I'm sure I can get it replaced .. I was just surprised that this happened with this type of mouse.

    I'm using optical mice for two years now. Even my first one (MS intellimouse optical) works perfectly for more than 7000 h beeing pushed over the mousepad.

    Therefor I believe there is something ill with your mouses physics.

    Make sure you have it on a surface that is good for an optical mouse. Shinny or plastic mouse pads don't work right. Try puting a pice off paper under your mouse and resett your mouse setting to the defaults.

    If it just went out suddenly I would call Apple. Both my keyboard & mouse crapped out (nothing inside them or spilled in them). I contacted Apple and they overnighted 2 pro mice and a pro keyboard.

    Check the cord. I know on my iMac G3, the cord split inside the plastic outer coating. Had to get a new mouse.

    Make shure there is nothing sticking to the bottom of it. Just a little bit of grime in the wrong spot can make it act up and respond strangely.
