Magic Mouse scroll not working.

Has anyone found a solution to the Magic Mouse, not scrolling all of the time after the latest OSX update (10.9).  Tried forgetting the mouse and then reactivating it.  No luck.

Please read this whole message before doing anything.
This procedure is a test, not a solution. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
Step 1
The purpose of this step is to determine whether the problem is localized to your user account.
Enable guest logins* and log in as Guest. Don't use the Safari-only “Guest User” login created by “Find My Mac.”
While logged in as Guest, you won’t have access to any of your personal files or settings. Applications will behave as if you were running them for the first time. Don’t be alarmed by this; it’s normal. If you need any passwords or other personal data in order to complete the test, memorize, print, or write them down before you begin.
Test while logged in as Guest. Same problem?
After testing, log out of the guest account and, in your own account, disable it if you wish. Any files you created in the guest account will be deleted automatically when you log out of it.
*Note: If you’ve activated “Find My Mac” or FileVault, then you can’t enable the Guest account. The “Guest User” login created by “Find My Mac” is not the same. Create a new account in which to test, and delete it, including its home folder, after testing.
Step 2
The purpose of this step is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party system modifications that load automatically at startup or login, by a peripheral device, by a font conflict, or by corruption of the file system or of certain system caches.
Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards. Boot insafe mode and log in to the account with the problem. Note: If FileVault is enabled on some models, or if a firmware password is set, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.
Safe mode is much slower to boot and run than normal, and some things won’t work at all, including sound output and Wi-Fi on certain models.  The next normal boot may also be somewhat slow.
The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.
Test while in safe mode. Same problem?
After testing, reboot as usual (i.e., not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of steps 1 and 2.

  • My magic mouse does not work with OS X Mountain Lion?

    My magic mouse does not work the direction of vertical displacement with the update OS X Mountain Lion?

    You are correct that you cannot install version 5.x of the AirPort Utility on OS X Mountain Lion. However, once installed it will run just fine. One workaround is to extract the utility directly from the disk image (.dmg) file.
    Here are the basic steps to install version 5.6 under Mountain Lion using CharlesSoft's Pacifist:
    If you haven't already download the AirPort Utility disk image file directly from Apple Support Download
    Place the resultant AirPortUtility56.dmg file onto your Mac's Desktop.
    Run Pacifist.
    Click on the Open Package option. Find the disk image file that you just placed on your desktop, and then, click on Open.
    The utility is located as follows: Contents of AirPortUtility56.dmg > Contents of AirPortUtility56.pkg > Contents of AirPortUtility56Lion.pkg > Applications > Utilities > AirPort Utility
    Drag AirPort Utility to your Mac's /Applications/Utilities folder.
    You can now run the AirPort Utility from the Utilities folder.

  • External mouse scrolling not working

    The scrolling function of my external mouse does not work when the MacBook Pro is not plugged in with its powercord. The mouse buttons seem to be functioning.  So does as an external keyboard. My wife has the same problem (using 10.6.2 OS). There are no options in the System Preferences that deal with this. Is this just an oversight by Apple? This basically makes using an external keyboard and mouse a nonviable option for a laptop unless you are near an electric outlet. If you know of a workaround I would appreciate the information. If not, it is something Apple will have to correct as it a pretty obvious oversight.
    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Check your settings when it is unplugged to make sure they are still properly configured.  You might even want to try and disable the trackpad when a mouse is being used.  I would also check out USB Overdrive (Shareware).

  • Magic Mouse click not working

    I have a magic mouse, with a MBP and 10.6.1 and the wireless mouse update installed.
    The mouse more or less works if "Secondary click" is checked. If I uncheck it, clicking does nothing. The mouse moves and scrolling works, but clicking has no effect.
    Also with "Secondary click" checked, if any part of my hand is touching the top surface of the mouse, I get a right-click when I click - makes the grip kind of awkward.
    Tried re-installing the software update.
    Any ideas? Thx.

    Not sure why it worked this time, but I deleted
    from the User preference folder again, and now the mouse is behaving as normal. I did not touch the .globalpreferences file.
    I did clean all the system/user caches (using Cache Out X), and then deleted this file again, but now the behavior seems correct
    - with Secondary Click deslected, the surface acts as one big single click button
    - with Secondary Click selected, it acts as a two button mouse
    - in Secondary Click mode, resting your second finger on the contexual side surface while clicking on the single click side surface does not interfere with the single click as it had before
    - in Secondary click mode, you need to lift your finger off the single click side when clicking the contextual button side, or it will not register as a contexual click. I presume this is expected behavior, as it is physically a one-button mouse, and Apple opted for a two-finger click to be interpreted as the more common single click request.
    Hope this helps some

  • Magic Mouse Momentum - NOT WORKING!

    Started using my brand new Magic Mouse and the momentum feature does not work. It does scroll like any other mouse on the market but no momentum. Also, I the tracking is slow even when set on the max setting. I've seen the posts with slow tracking, but is anyone having an issue with no momentum?

    Ok, this is what I did:
    Searched for, open it (It should open, by default, in Property List Editor).
    Open >Root. It will show a list of properties. BUT the 2 buttons at the top of the window will be greyed out. Just click on the property "UserPreferences" and the buttons at the top will become active.
    Click the "Add Sibling". In the new property that appears enter MouseMomentumScroll. Set it to Boolean and set to Yes and restart.
    And it works!
    YES, YES, I know I'm saying basically the same thing as DanielZ360, but I think "open the domain overview" might be confusing.

  • Magic mouse gestures not working

    I also tried my mouse on another laptop and the same problem happens.
    it's behaving like a "normal" mouse.
    Is this a hardware problem? if yes, How do I fix it?
    Please advise,

    Reset the SMC and PRAM, it make take 2-3 attempts to fully clear them. If those do not work restart in Safe Mode to clear some caches.

  • Sound and mouse scrolling not working in windows 8

    I installed windows 8 on my Imac (late 2011). I have managed to solve most of the compatability issues but the three I have left are No Sound (I really need this), scroll wheels dont work on any mouse (nor does the touch functions of the magic mouse), and the facetime camera doesn't work. If you could help me solve any of these issues it would be excellent. Also yes I am aware that apple will eventually release drivers for windows 8 but I need it now, so don't tell me to wait. Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

    Wait. Or, remove Windows 8 and install Windows 7. Or, install Windows 8 using Parallels or Fusion rather than using Bootcamp Assistant.

  • Mouse Scroll Not Working in oracle forms

    I Created a master and detail block.. In Detail block following Properties i set

    i'm using Oracle 10g.. JIniator for Running Oracle Forms
    applying this Coding this function is not working..
    Can anybody tell this How to oversome from this...???

    What version of Oracle Forms are you using? You should always include this in your posts. :)
    Mouse scrolling is only enabled in Web runtime of Forms - so you must be using Forms 9i or higher.
    Does JRE Support mouse scrolling function?If memory serves, Mouse scroll was first introduced in Java 1.5.0. Therefore, if you want enble the mouse scroll wheel in Forms, you must be using JRE 1.5.0 or higher. I strongly recommend you use Java 1.6.0_33 or higher - but do not use Java 1.7.0 as it has not been certified with Oracle Forms yet.
    In order to use the JRE over the Jinitiator, you must modify your configuration to enable use of the JRE. Please take a look at Oracle 10gR2 Forms Services – Using Sun's Java Plug-in. This Oracle White Paper is for Forms 10g Release 2, but the instructions are basically the same for 9i and 11g as well.
    Hope this helps,

  • HT3904 Magic Mouse: laser not working

    Without warning, the laser appears to have stopped working in my Magic Mouse. It connects using Bluetooth, I have full fuctionality with the left and right click features as well as the surface of the mouse, however I am unable to move the cursor on the screen of my MacBook. Could anyone offer a solution, or do I have to buy a replacement? Thank you in anticipation.

    Try resetting the PRAM and SMC.  If that does not work, take it to an Apple store (if one is close) and have them test it.

  • Magic trackpad scrolling not working new iMac 5k

    I just received my new iMac with Trackpad included and the two finger scrolling is not working.  I have verified settings, made sure I am in a scrollable window with the cursor, tried turning on and off natural scrolling and other options to no avail.  I did transfer from my old iMac and it is possible there was something on it that was interfering.  I did delete the software for my old mouse.  I am at a loss for what to try next but am very frustrated and disappointed that this is not working. 

    The warranty entitles you to complimentary phone support for the first 90 days of ownership.
    If you bought the product in the U.S. directly from Apple (not from a reseller), you have 14 days from the date of delivery in which to exchange or return it for a refund. In other countries, the return policy may be different. If you bought from a reseller, its return policy applies.

    Use one finger from top to bottom (vertically) as if you're rolling over an imaginary wheel to scroll up and down. One finger horizontally will scroll left to right.
    You should view [This Tutorial|] that shows Magic Mouse gestures including scrolling.

  • Keyboard and Magic Mouse Bluetooth not working

    I have an imac 21.5 late 2012, the problem is that every time you turn on the computer, keyboard and mouse do not respond, to make it work I have to turn it off and unplug all cables and let it without energy about 10 seconds, then i turned it on, and works great.
    Anyone have any similar problem? The imac has only one month of purchasing it and this is driving me crazy, it´s not suppose to act this way.
    I'll be very grateful if someone helps me

    Hey csaady,
    Thanks for the question. I understand you are having issues with your wireless peripherals when starting your computer. The following article may be of assistance to resolve this issue:
    Troubleshooting wireless mouse and keyboard issues
    If you continue to have issue, you can also reset the PRAM for your computer:

    Note: Resetting PRAM may change some system settings and preferences. Use System Preferences to restore your settings.
