Question about Toshiba Tecra M1 PC Laptops
When I try to use the eraser mouse on my keyboard the cursor will only move left to right. If I connect a mouse with a cable it works fine. Must be a problem with the eraser mouse. Suggestions?
This device is monitored via a kind of strain gauge; that is why it does not seem to move; it does move but not noticeably.
If it is no longer responsive in one or the other direction, I would call it dead.
I have never seen one of these loose but I would expect to find a small sealed housing that has an equally small, multicontact connector attached.
If you are unlucky, Toshiba may have attached this to the keyboard's platform requiring the replacement of it as a unit.
On most laptops, the keyboard is fairly easy to remove and if you can accomplish that, restoring the truncated joy stick is probably not difficult.
Sorry I cannot give you detailed instructions for disassembly.
