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

Hi, my trackman wheel mouse fell onto the carpet, and the "red ball" someone got loose (never happened before), and when I placed it back in the socket, doesn't work. By that, I mean the cursor doesn't move at all...plus the trackball doesn't glide in the socket anymore. Was there some some of component that would have fallen out, or something??

Had the same problem. Ball wasn't properly seated in socket. Firmly but gently pressing with thumb fixed things.

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.

Logitech trackman wheel stopped working. I have changed the batteries and reset, but the problem persists. Can you help?Thank you, Claudia


First step would be to clean the sensor inside the ball housing. Remove the ball (turn retaining ring on bottom or simply pull out) and clean the sensor area free of debris or dust using cotton swabs or klenex. Next step would be to ensure that you have have no wireless devices such as a cordless phone or wireless routers in close proximity that may interfere with the signal. Finally, test on another computer to see if you gain functionality else it may be time to find a new mouse.

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...

My trackball is okay with large, sweeping


Background:
I have a total of six Logitech trackballs; four of the newer Trackman Wheel model, and two of the older Trackman Marble+ model (as pictured). All but one of them suffer from the problem described by dave48. The fifth, for some mysterious reason, never has this problem.

Solution:
The solution I came up with is to light a candle and let melted wax drip onto the red thumb ball. A single drip falling on three random places on the ball usually does the trick. (The wax should dry as soon as it contacts the ball.) I then start moving the ball around to work the wax onto the teflon points. The movement will be VERY rough initially, but will gradually smooth out the more you use it. Sometimes the initial three drips aren't enough and the ball starts getting rough again, so I will melt three more drips of wax onto the ball and work them in as well.

Conclusion:
This really seems to do the trick and for some reason the points don't seem to need cleaning as often either. You do have to be careful not to remove the wax when performing a cleaning, however. But if you do happen to remove some wax all you need to do is melt some additional wax onto the ball and work it in like before.

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!!!
