If the mouse on your Amiga 2000 suddenly quits working, check for +5V missing on the mouse/joystick ports (pin 7).

If you don't find +5V on pin 7, check for one of these fuses (which happens to not look like a fuse) on the board up near the joystick ports, and if you find one, check it for continuity. It's quite possible that it's blown and will need te be replaced.

This happened to me a couple of years ago. It's only happened once in 30-ish years, but I keep a stock of them on hand now, just in case.

Not all revs of the board have a fuse there, but mine does.
