Question about Microspeed KidTRAC Trackball

1 Answer

KidTrac Trackball My disabled student uses this trackball with her foot. Consequently it is becoming dirty and worn after a few months of use and it tends not to move as well. Do you have any suggestions re cleaning it? Also, can we replace the ball with another one? It is about the same size as a billiard ball. Would that work as a replacement?

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.

Scroll is hesitating.. Will work for moment then button keeps scrolling but screen does not scroll with movement of button... Can this be fixed or do I have to replace? LynnsizzleV@aol.com


Lynne:
You can try a few things... Take a clean rag or cloth and moisten it with rubbing alcohol and gently scrub across the scroll wheel to remove dirt and skin oils from the scroll wheel and trackball. Don't let alcohol drip into the trackball body. If that doesn't work, and you are somewhat mechanically inclined, you can turn the trackball over and remove the screws that hold the housing together (some may be under the rubber pads on the bottom of the trackball) open the housing and clean the parts that contact the trackball and scroll wheel with a clean rag or cloth. Blow out any dust or dirt in the housing, Dry the parts you cleaned with alcohol and reassemble the trackball. Use rubber cement on the rubber pads, not model cement or super glue, in case you need to disassemble the trackball again at a later time.

Just push out the bearings and rotate before pushing them back in. Push out from behind with a bradawl or similar shaped small pointed tool. Do this as many times as you need to renew the surfaces and restore this fantastic mouse to full functionallity.

Lose connectivity betw Logitech Cordl and base


You probably have a cordless telephone or wireless network connection that is periodically blasting the frequency band that your trackman uses.  The only solution is switching to different frequency bands on these devices.  If you can simply unplug these gadgets for a few hours you can identify the culprit.

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.

Is the trackball supported by the MAC operating system? If available try the same setup, using the adapter, on a windows based computer to troubleshoot whether it is the trackball or the Mac.

Dell Laptop Trackball Too sensitive!


Go to control panel. Select mouse. In the window that opens, select the dell touchpad tab. Click where it tells you.

Then, on the bottom left of the next window that opens, select "pointing stick settings." Uncheck the "tap to click" and the TouchCheck "Enable" boxes.

That seemed to work for me. you can also disable the touchcheck on the touchpad.
