Trackman fx mouse quit working is it possible to field trouble shoot? I think it would be possible to replace what is bad with a cheap track ball part? I see that a ebay store buys bad ones and fixes them it should be an easy field fix

Take the ball out and clean your optical ports already. If that's not enough, obviously you get to ask an eBay seller whether their secret ball-fixing formula works in your 'field environment.'

W7 using dongle ps2 to usb


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. :)

The ball movement isn't smooth, it sticks and jumps past the spot I want to click on.


You might have a dirty ball-holder. Reverse the trackman and hit with it your cupped hand, so that the ball gets out. You'll see a cavity with three round metal prongs and a square dark window. Clean the window with a cotton earbud and the prongs with a toothpick, then push gently the ball in place.

If this does not work, verify the area is free of radio interference and the trackman batteries are fully charged. Also try placing the transmitter at different distances and positions; sometimes the handshake between the units is quirky.

Lastly, verify your PC isn't overloaded and that's the cause of the sluggish mouse movements. Of course, if you "feel" a sticky mouse with your fingers, the cause will be mechanical - the first one. But just in case...

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!!!

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...

Trackman wheel....ball fell loose, now actin weird


Dust has a tendancy to collect under the ball at the 3 contact tips (you should look under the ball)and it is possible enough dust collected when the ball was removed, that the dust particles became a large dust ball and lodged under the ball making it impossible to move!
Remove the ball and clean the area and replace the ball and it should work fine.

Can i use another mouse with this bundle?


Yes, you can purchase a wireless mouse with its own receiver and install it. It should work fine. Also you can use a PS2 wired mouse with it and it shouldn't conflict with each other.
Hope this helps. Bud
