    they didn t hold the batteries in good contact This can be worked around by adding a small piece of paper between the batteries and and battery cover Apple replaced mine but that was years ago You ve probably got something there as my 4 year old magic mouse WILL NOT work IF I have the back cover on It went on the blink about a year ago I messed around with it until I finally figured out what was going on So now the back cover stays OFF and all is fine Reply With Quote 12 14 2014 11 29 PM 51 Dustball View Profile View Forum Posts Member Since Feb 08 2014 Posts 37 Interesting discussion About a month ago I bought a like new magic mouse from a guy on eBay Maybe a week or so later I started to get erratic window behaviors that wouldn t scroll and when they did they ran wild Did some tweeking with disk utility and TechTool Pro and things seemed to settle down A couple weeks ago I decided to configure the mouse for other tasks and my computer went out of my control opening windows and typing a single keystroke dozens of times Lost complete control of the magic mouse utility and finally managed to boot from a disc and run disk utility which itself was behaving oddly To make a long story short the mouse even though I restored it to the old configuration still ran wild and disc utility gave me red notifications to repair the hard drive I retired the mouse and reinstalled my old wireless mouse and all is well It would appear the magic mouse is the source of unmanageable problems Now I hope eBay and PayPal will fulfill their guarantees Last edited by Dustball 12 14 2014 at 11 36 PM Reply With Quote 04 23 2016 08 48 PM 52 Pasquanel View Profile View Forum Posts Member Since Mar 22 2015 Posts 35 I ve been using a MM for about 3 years now and at one point it started acting erratically and slow to connect I m not sure where I read this I thought it was here but a poster suggested i cut a piece of a business card and place it between the batteries and the back cover I did and its been fine ever since for well over a year now Reply With Quote Yesterday 05 48 PM 53 Dustball View Profile View Forum Posts Member Since Feb 08 2014 Posts 37 It was a surprise to me but the magic mouse wasn t my problem it was the keyboard If you have another keyboard you might try it If it is the mouse Clean the battery s contacts Dampen Q tips with alcohol and scrub them It s possible dirt could affect the contacts from smoking or air born oils Remote but lasers in a computer itself can be affected by years of use in dusty environments
