Mouse wheel generting noise.

Hi.

My mouse wheel is causing a noise during scrolling. The noise is like a ball bearing needs lubricants badly.

It is a Logitech K260 Keyboard/mouse combo.

Is there a way to minimize/reduce/stop it?

Thanks.

Hi,
Is the noise just coming from the mouse or through your speakers ?
If just the mouse sounds like a defect :/

You could get some clear machine oil and try to put a drop on each side of the wheel ?
Or send the sucker back.

Is it a ball mouse? If so, remove the circle cap, and the ball. Clean both the ball and the rollers inside the ball bay. They will collect dust.

If not, I don't even know how a laser mouse emits a sound. I have heard sound from speakers when moving a laser mouse before though. But don't remember what I did.

Not from the speaker but from the mouse, while rolling the wheel.

I like the idea of applying machine oil. Is it safe?

The description of the mouse is there in the original post, and in the system specs, too.

Yes I wouldn't put a whole lot though,
Most mouse wheels will move sideways too just get a syringe and dope it up a bit
After you dope it up with a drop turn the wheel and turn it upside down so any excess will run out.

You might even try center clicking a couple times might shake things up a little.

Oops, sorry Arc, I missed the wheel part and was wondering why would someone still use a ball mouse also

I will do it when I will shut the computer down. Thanks for the idea, Mike.

If memory serves me correctly, machine oil is not electrically conductive, so you should be fine as long as you don't get it on the laser lens.

I'd be more inclined to use a dry lubricant that would not attract dust or contribute to making grime. Maybe a Teflon-based lube like might be used in a lock or other tight space.
