A lot of trackball controlls made by Microsoft and Logitech use a optical system. Once the control on the screen doesn't move anymore, you simply remove the ball and clean the optics out of it.

If there is a way that you can remove the ball out of the control, all you have to do is clean the rollers underneath the wheel. After some time they do build up just like a friction mouse does. All it takes is some Qtips and a water alchohol solution.

I would hope for a kid trackball they made that a feature.

My Microsoft Intellimouse Trackball rolls but the cursor doesn't


the circular disk that surrounds the trackball and has a little raised part can be turned to left - take it off and ball will fall out- inside are 2 tiny black rubber wheels one to left and one south of that- clean with alcohol on a cloth 9 not soaked) - I scrap them with my nail going across & you'll see gunk come off. Slso turn it upside down & tap it so all dirt inside falls out. wipe all around inside with cloth. Then clean the circle that holds ball. It has to have no dirt on inside area. Clean & dry ball- put back together and make sure to turn the circlular disc till it points to the dot on top. If that gets turned just a little off center it will cause ball to go all over. I've had mine for years & won't part with it. Can't stand chasing a regular mouse around the desk.

Logitech Marble Mouse became erratic then stopped


Nope have to throw it away and buy another. I've had this same problem every 3-4 months: works fine then it disappears from device manager then it works again at random. I end up replacing it after my curser stops moving for minutes at a time. After a few months the replacement does the same thing. My 5th replacement will be Kensington, Logitech apparently sucks

Trackman wheel....ball fell loose, now actin weird


Dust has a tendancy to collect under the ball at the 3 contact tips (you should look under the ball)and it is possible enough dust collected when the ball was removed, that the dust particles became a large dust ball and lodged under the ball making it impossible to move!
Remove the ball and clean the area and replace the ball and it should work fine.

You'll need to remove the three phillips head screws on the bottom of the trackball. That will provide access to the contacts under the ball for cleaning.

Great trackball. A little more friction than the Kensington Expert Rollerball, which I like as long as the contacts inside are kept clean.
