Question about Logitech Cordless TrackMan Optical Trackball

1 Answer

Trackball stops communicating with PC

Sometimes after I reboot my PC my Logitech optical trackball will stop working. If I unplug it from the back of the PC and then plug it back in (even in the same port) it will work just fine. Any ideas what's causing this?

Hi, logitech mice quite often have an 'auto power off' after a period of time. Instead of unplugging and plugging it back in, try clicking one of the mouse keys, give id 1-2 seconds and try it again.

After months of good work my mouse stopped working, it has to be very close to the receiver for the pointer to move. New bateries installed, still the same.


Has any new piece of hardware been put in between the trackball and the receiver? Electro-magnetic fields can cause interference. I had a similar problem once - didn't even unplug the receiver, just moved it behind the monitor. It was a big clunky CRT screen and created a huge EM field - huge enough to cause interference with the trackball.

Mouse ball stops responding, or responds irratically at times. shaking and rotating the mouse 180 seems to provide temporary solution...ball, and sensors are clean (mouse is only 2 mths old...)


Send it back for repair, there is no fixing the chip in a mouse. Sometimes they don't work after one day.
So it depends on how much you paid for it depends on if its work ending back.

This is a great mouse, I only use logitech.

It does have a 5yr warranty.

Cursor when using Logitech Trackball sometimes drifts up or down


I finally just was able to solve this problem! I saw somewhere that someone had made sure their primary mouse was selected under hardware, which got me thinking. I thought I had seen a second mouse option somewhere. So, I went into my Control Panel > System > Device Manager and click the arrow next to Mice and other pointing devices. Sure enough, there were two listed. A seemingly generic one and my Logitech I've been using. I right clicked on the generic one and chose disable and the drifting IMMEDIATELY stopped. I went so far as to re-enable that generic to see if it was a fluke because it had stopped drifting on its own yesterday, nope as soon as I enabled the generic device, drifting started again. So Happy!!!

One more problem with "Vista'


Two options:

1. Download the latest Vista driver for your trackball or mouse from the Logitech website and do a clean install.

2. Go to Control Panel and uninstall that particular update.

Should work :)

Cheers!

Kid trackball


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.

Logitech 4 button trackball,


I love this trackball mouse, yet they are very sensitive to wear and trash that causes them to fail. Wal-Mart sells great ones like the Logitech LX3 optical mouse that are not as sensitive and have more features
