  1. Hello there!

    I recently, about 2 weeks ago, got the same problem Aolish described in a post 2 years ago.(Can't link because I don't have 5posts yet)

    The scroll wheel has it own life and scrolls by itself, mostly down but also up sometimes.

    I've opend my mouse, cleaned it, removed the wheel and cleaned it etc. But the problem is still there.

    I wonder if you (Aolish) managed to fix the problem with your MX518. If you did, I'd really appreciate if you could tell me how you did.
    Because this problem is really annoying.

    If anyone else had the same problem, or know how to fix this problem, feel free to post anything that can for help. All help is really appreciated.

    But if it's not fixable, I'll have to start looking for a new mouse.

    Thx in advance, fikapaus.

    Have you tried another mouse?

    Yes I have. It works just fine with another mouse.

    Yeah, probably. I've had it for some years now, so maybe it have to be put down.
    I think I'll just have to buy a new one.

    Thank you anyways.
