Clean it with rubbing alchohol......alchohol doesnt leave a residue and its also nice because if drys quickly......just get a q-tip damp and clean it real well.

Determine what the substance that's adhered to track ball, or if it's an internally malfunctioning sensor pad. If it's the sensor underneath, have your service center take care of it.

Otherwise, instead of spelling out all the steps to go through, this site has provided these details very clearly. Enjoy.

Why won't correction tape advance? Works for a few words then gets stuck.

There are 2 types of correction tapes, a sticky type and a non sticky type. The sticky type is for the IBM selectric series. If you have print wheel, you need the non sticky type. Touch the tape and see if it sticks to your finger, if it does, you have the wrong tape.

Pride sonic noise when moving

Very possibly a slightly binding break caused by grit or by a dry sticky hand break cable or sticky hand brake leaver

D60 error press shutter release button

Here's what I found on the Nikon forum and it also works for D60 Digital Camera.
Get a very small cross head screwdriver (watchmaker size)
A can of WD40
Sticky tape
A good light

Remove the Battery and SD card
Open up the bottom of the D40x putting the small screws onto the sticky tape in order of removal.

You know the camera well, so you know where all the screws go.
Remove the metal plate (used for the tripod mount, you will need to remove the back of the D40x as well, it's only 2 screws)

Now look at John C Ayr's pic of the

Spray a SMALL amount of WD40 onto the red and white gear wheels.
(Don't use so much that it drips down onto the optics, you don't want oil in there!!!)

Put the battery in and hold it down to make contact, put in the sd card and switch on the camera and try the shutter button. (switch it to manual focus or it might try hunting around for ages for focus)

It might start working, if not move the red wheel a few stops and try again.

Once it's lubed up and the wheels move it should be ok.
Keep taking pics until you feel it is ok.

Then reassemble following the screws backwards on the sticky tape.

Hi. my 1980 mercedes 300 SD has sticky brakes all the time. even after an overhaul, the brakes remain sticky.

With vehicle raised and supported safely turn the sticking wheel/s. Then open the bleed nipple for that caliper. If the wheel frees up then you most likely have semi blocked flexible brake pipes. Renew them all. If you have no luck let us know what you have tried/replaced so far.

How do i get the 4x4 off . i have turn the switch and it is not working.

If you don't use the four wheel drive much the parts have a tendency to get sticky. Try driving the vehicle in forwards than reverse, turn the selector switch , back to two wheel drive while the vehicle is in neutral.

Constant squll on left side when I hit the break, I had new rotors and pads put on.

May have picked up a small stone or something. Sometimes a quick trip to carwash & spray in behind wheel at brakes the best you can , may dislodge it. If it continues, you may have to pull the wheel and take a look, or run it back to installer in case defective pad or sticky caliper. If it's a sticky caliper, then they didn't do their job right if it was done recently.

My 4 wheel drive does not engage on the wheels

Keep trying , shift vehicle in the neutral position and back again. Try driving your vehicle in high range for awhile as well. Main problem is people don't engage there 4x4 enough and parts get sticky.
