Computer Upgrades Repairs How to Clean Fix a Mouse

You know, there have been some innovationsin Mouse market lately, mainly being optical. I know some of you at home still have a ballmouse but either which way, you gotta clean it. My name’s James, computer hardware trainingcoordinator for Interconnection, and I’m going to show you how to clean and fix your mouse.Now a ball mouse differs from optical mouse in that it has a ball. This causes some inherentproblems. One, is as you’re moving it around the mouse pad, all the dust and such can getbrought up in to there, and cause interference with the computer seeing the movement of theball, which is how the computer knows how the mouse is moving. To clean these mice,it’s rather simple. You have these two little

marks right here, and all you do is you rotateit, and then falls right out. As you can see here, there’s a little bit of dust on here,nothing too bad. But we still might want to clean this mouse. So what we do is we takea nice cloth. Sometimes I like to use a little rubbing alcohol on here just to make sureevery thing’s very clean. And I’ll go in here, swab it all out until the inside of it lookspretty nice and clean. Another thing to keep in mind is you want to clean the actual ball.Get all that dust off, all the lint from your mouse pad and everything else. The main thingyou’re cleaning in your mouse are these rollers right here. What these rollers do is theyroll, as the name sits, with the ball, giving

it an x and a y access. This let’s it knowwhere it is in relation to the mouse pad and if you’re moving it left, right, up, downor anything in between. This is primarily what you want to clean. You want to make surethere’s no build up on here. I can see we have a little build up right there. You wantto make sure you get all that off. This all can give your mouse a little better responseand just overall better computer experience. To do this, use your cloth. You might wantto roll it up a little bit to get in there. Just get all that off there. So, you wantto get the dust off from each roller. Once you do this one you move on to the next one.Once the mouse is all clean, you simply reassemble

it. To do this, make sure every thing’s nicean clean. Once you’re satisfied with how clean it is, insert the ball, put the plate backover, make sure the plate sits flush, rotate the plate, plate should be in firmly, andnow your mouse is ready to go.
