Computer mouse are inexpensive. And can be found in any office supply store, even Wal-mart.
You can use the HP or any generic 2 button, scroll ,USB or PS2 mouse on this unit.

Your Sony mouse is bad.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Optical track ball is sticking. How clean it and what to avoid?

An "optical" mouse has *NO* track-ball.

If you do have a mouse with a track-ball, then rotate the "ring" that holds the track-ball inside the mouse, to "unlock" the ring. Remove the ring. Look inside the mouse. You'll see two rollers.
Look for accumulated "gunk" in a ring at the center of each roller. Gently scrape each roller, to clean it. Re-insert the mouse. Re-insert the ring. Rotate it, to "lock" the ring into place.

Curser jumps all over screen when mouse moved

If you don'y use a mouse mat then your sensor (if you use a mouse with a censor) is picking up bumps, or changes in the surface it is moving over and turning it into jumps on your screen and using a mouse mat should solve this. If you use a mouse with a ball the take the ball out and give th rollers inside a good clean.

Mouse will not mover cursor but will right and

Does your mouse use a ball for movement?
Look at bottom of mouse. If so you could have a ditty unit. You can turn the ball cover counter clockwise and remove the ball. Clean the ball and the rollers inside the mouse. Replace the mouse ball and cover and retry the mouse.

No movement on mouse but buttons work

If its an older "ball" mouse, it probably needs cleaning. Turn upside down and pull the cover off( you should see the direction to pull on the cover that holds the ball in ). Clean the ball and the cover, look inside the mouse body and you should see 4 rollers, clean any fluff or "crud" out with a cotton bud, dry, and reassemle.

Sticky, dirty rollers

There are 2 ways to clean the rollers.
  1. From underneath you can unscrew the piece holding in the trackball; from here my tool of choice is a pencil eraser. Rub away at the gummed up rollers until you are sure they are clean.
  2. Unscrew the mouse and take it apart. You will find the rollers will "pop" out of their clips (be careful not to apply too much pressure or you can break a clip). Once out, it's very easy to clean the rollers thoroughly. One of the rollers will usually be spring loaded so keep an eye on the spring when disassembling. The process for putting the rollers back is just as they came out with the spring loaded roller put back last (easier to place other rollers first as they don't move once they are in. Once the rollers are in, re-assemble the mouse, replace the trackball and you're in business.
I've been doing this with my old USB mouse for years, still working great after 5 years!
Hope this answers your question and best of luck to you!

Hp rollerball mouse model M8590PLJ

Flip the small rat upside down!
Remove the ball by turning the round plastic ball retainer counter clockwise. Clean the ball with soapy water, rinse it and dry it, and set it aside.
Look inside the mouse, you should see three white nylon or black plastic rollers, scrape any dirt that might be caked on to them, and clean them throughly with some alchool or acetone.
If you have a can of compressed air, point the the nozzle inside the mouse to expell all the dust out, if you have no air, use your mouth, blow hard!
Put the ball back on the mouse, the plastic retainer (turn clockwise to lock in place). and you're all set to go!
