It's not really a spring -- it's just a twisted piece of wire. actually, it's what makes your little scroll wheel click when you turn it. place the scrool wheel in the little plastic bracket that holds it with the longest piece of axel (hollow side of wheel) in. then TURN THE BRACKET OVER. the wire goes on the BOTTOM, which is quite counterintuitive. you'll see how it goes -- the smallest end of the wire goes INSIDE the scroll wheel and the kinda squared end of the wire goes into a little hole in the bracket. you'll understand when you look closely at it. once the wire is installed, hold it in place when you turn the bracket/ball/wire assembly over. fit the legs on the bracket into the groves on the base of the trackball -- that's the side where the ball sits and the circuit board is. make sure the scroll wheel passes through the trackball cover when putting it all back together. VOILA! problem solved.

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.

Trackman cordless spring associated with the scroll wheel


OK this is a little hard to describe, but I think my son and I figured it out. The spring has sort of a loop at one end and a square tail at the other end. The loop end fits inside the wheel then the spring follows the channel in the plastic. Finally, the square tail goes underneath into a hole in the plastic piece. I wish I had a photo but my camera broke!!
