Hi Imatcha,

No worries, it's an easy fix.

Theres some crud on the rollers inside the ball socket. It builds up after a while whether its a trackball or standard mouse.

The ball is usually held in by a ring with two indentations on it. Use a pen or something hard and pointy to turn it counter clock wise about 1/4 turn.

Take off the ring, take out the ball.

Inside you'll find two rollers offset 90 degrees from one another. The center of one or both has a buildup that keeps the ball from turning the roller.

Use a Q-tip with alcohol to clean it. Sometimes you can just scrape it with a fingernail.

When your done, put the ball back in, the ring back on, quarter twist clockwise and you're ready to go.

Thanks for using FixYa

I checked the feature of the mouse. The mouse can be reprogrammed only for left and right handed person. I guess you need to get the mouse replaced as we already tried replacing the battery.

What are some exercises that two people can do together using a medicine ball?

There are quite a few exercises where you can use partnering work. I will describe 2 variations for you now.

  1. . A standing torso twist - stand back to back (approximately one meter apart) with your hips facing forwards. Pass the ball to one another by only twisting your torso.
  2. Vertical Extensions - stand back to back with your partner. Begin by passing the ball overhead and then return it between your legs. Here is a diagram illustrating the vertical extension partner work.

Mouse Cursor just goes Vertical, Up and Down can't do anything else, or Horizontal.

Try with another mouse. If the mouse is with a ball, open the mouse and clean the wheels inside.
