Question about Logitech Trackman Marble FX Trackball

1 Answer

My Trackman Marble FX stopped working after dealing with a virus. Never could get it to work, maybe I just wore it out. Bought a Logitech optical mouse but the left click is messed up. It locks and does a drag when I don't want it to. Can't find replacement as comfortable as the original. When I plug the FX in the computer does not recognize it. I run XP home edition 5.1 (Build 2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr.080814-1236: Service Pack 3). I used the PS/2 port but it just isn't recognized. Can I replace the PS/2 connector with a USB connector? Thanks

It could be a bad Trackman or a bad PS/2 Port.

1st test if it's the port by trying another mouse, or by trying this Trackman in another known working PS/2 port on another computer.  (don't forget to reboot each time you plug in a PS/2 device)

2nd, you can try using a PS/2 to USB adaptor.

These two have great reviews...

Why won't my Logitech Traackman MArble FX work with Windows 7?


If you are trying to convert your Logitech Trackman Marble FX from PS2 to USB so it will work with Windows 7, you can't just convert the port type - you have to get an "adapter" that converts the PS2 signal to a USB signal. See for ATen - UC 100KMA. WEB SIte:
http://www.aten.com/products/KVM/KVM-Modules-&-Accessories/PS2-to-USB-Adapter~UC100KMA.html#.U5sYrCi4NAE.

It allows you to convert a PS2 keyboard and PS2 mouse/trackball with the one device. It's what I use and it works just fine. The regular $2.00 port adapter was useless.

They are on EBAY sometimes for $20 or so. GOOD LUCK. :)

Double clicking, left button


Hello, if the mouse is double clicking randomly means the mouse button or button soldering are broken, maybe you might want to try opening it up and resoldering the mouse button, if it doesn't work you can use an old mouse button that fits the space and solder that one in the mouse that's having problems, reassemble and see if it works, the good news is that most of the time it does.

LOGITECH trackball mouse stopped working


Hi, I suggest you to contact the Logitech support for a replacement this is an hardware failure and it's covered by warranty terms.
If you are not under warranty you still can contact them as I know for instance in Europe they can offer you some good deal on nowadays products for out of warranty people.
