"Ghost Scroll"

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
What does this expression mean? For example, when it is stated that a scroll wheel sometimes ghost scrolls.

It's when you get scroll inputs without actually rolling over a detent.

Probably, but I haven't seen one. If I locate one, I'll post it.

That sounds more like the encoder in your mouse wheel are wearing out. Logitech uses optical encoders that don't wear out but add resistance is a very mediocre fashion, Razer uses mechanical encoders that feel nicer but eventually wear out. You really just need to replace the encoder but that needs soldering skills.
