    Roller ball does not consistently roll from right to left as it does from top to bottom, bottom to top or left to right. Have changed sensitivities but it still will often not move across the screen right to left. It even sounds different when you listen closely.

Cleaning the roller ball with a lint free cloth seems to work pretty well. Lock the hand held and then just go to town on the roller ball with the lint free cloth.

My scroll wheel skips, jumps, scrolls backward or on its own. Can I fix it?

Take the roller ball out of the bottom of your mouse if it's the older style and clean the dirt and dust of the roller wheels with a q tip and alcohol. If it is an optical mouse try putting a piece of white paper under it when you use it this may help. If not it is time for a new one.

My roller ball does not scroll down, it goes all other directions but down, it makes it so hard for me to navigate.

take the roller ball out by poping out the silver ring at the top and look on the bottom of the ball and make sure that all of the black rollers will roll and if not clean them.

Roller ball

All you have to do is take a sheet of paper with print on it. Take the battery out of you phone. Next do a figure eight motion with the ball side down on the phone about 10 times. There is something on the ink on the paper that will make this work again. good luck

Same problem, wouldn't scroll down. Lifted the ring pulled out the rollerball and cleaned it with alchohol. Used a cotton swab, soaked it pretty good and rolled it around a bit. Set it back in and it worked like new. Watch how you take it out so you can put it back in the same way.
