If the motion is completely inverted, look around for some unknown utility (e.g. using AnVir Task Manager Free ) that's doing this unliked job for you.  If it's just kind of not moving right, take out the ball and clean the -rollers- the ball goes up against which are exposed by removing the ball...use a fingernail or nail file or something to get it back to being a smooth rod, or buy an optical mouse already!  Mice can eventually go bad because the IR emitters and receivers inside get jammed with dust; so if it's moving only 1 pixel at a time if at all, you can carefully clean it out with compressed air.  The electronics can go bad, too, oddly enough.  So it's possible you need a new one.

My trackball moves left to right but not up and down. What is the problem?


When was the last time you cleaned it? Get some canned air and alcohol swab. Clean off laser, squirt air gently in crevices etc. Best to unplug mouse first.

Will trackball model 64215 work on Windows 7?


The last operating system that allows a Kensington Expert Mouse 5.0 Model 64215 to work properly is Windows XP. Kensington refuses to update their MouseWorks software in order to make it compatible with Windows Vista or 7. The mouse WILL work, but only with basic functionality, i.e., no programmable buttons, and the pointer moves crazy slow...

My mouse pad will not move my cursor on my computer


If your mouse is the older ball type hold the mouse level about 12 inches off the pad and move the ball on the underside of the mouse with your finger. If the cursor moves you may need to simply clean any dust from inside the device and clean the ball. Open the open to release the ball. Theres a round plate on the underside around the ball. Turn it to the open position a remove the ball. Clean any dust from inside with canned air or a soft brush. Clean the ball with a small amount of alcohol and let dry completely. Replace ball and plate and you should be ready to go.
If you have an infrared mouse, your mousepad may be too glossy. Dry a pad with a dull finish.

Rollerball on Wireless mouse keeps getting gummed up. Cleaning done frequently but need to open mouse to get inside cleaned ?


The Apple wireless mice aren't made to be disassembled, not even by techs. If you disassemble it to clean it, you must glue it back together.
The best way to clean the rollerball is to remove the batteries and roll the ball upside down on a cloth soaked in alcohol. Be sure to roll the ball alternately depressed and not depressed for the best cleaning, and roll it in all directions.
When this no longer works, you can either attempt to clean the ball yourself at your own risk, or purchase a new mouse.

Spin ball. Cursor barely moves on screen.


Have ya tried removing the ball and cleaning the infrared screen under the ball with a cue tip? Also get all the finger grease and gunk out of that area too. You can remove the ball with a pencil or pen, use the dull end of the pen or the eraser end of the pencil, so you don't divot/dent the ball.

Poor tracking in trackball


Sounds like it needs clesnong. dust and dirt get inside through the ball and should be cleaned ever so often.
Hope this helps. Bud

Mighty Mouse won't scroll down


I have had the same problem on occasion.  I found that if I turn the mouse over and tickle it...  It works!  Only kidding...
Turn the mouse over, push down hard so the ball is depressed, and move it vigorously in all directions.  That usually dislodges whatever is trapped inside.
