How do you remove the ring that holds the trackball if it's stuck?

I have an AGPtek Wireless Finger HandHeld USB Trackball Mouse. The ring that holds the trackball is stuck. I've tried moving in with my sum which is the normal way to do that. It didn't work. So then I tried using a sharp object in the little pinhole that they have on it and turning it to the left. It didn't budge. I tried a pair of scissors putting the tip in each hole. It also didn't work. I've tried cleaning the trackball with a cloth. Which has worked some. Unfortunately that's been a temporary fix only. I went around the problem and blew it out with a can of air. It works great now.

Q. What trackball wireless mouse is compatible with Logitech K260 keyboard/mouse combo? Is it the Logitech M570 trackball mouse that works with K260 keyboard?

The trackball mouse will come with it's own wireless adapter, So you can use any model you want. Mouse and Keyboard are fairly generic devices and will install themselves.
So you can choose any trackball you like and it will work as expected.

Nextech mouse through usb continues to install successfully, then freezes while trying to move about my laptop! No, it is not that the Lptp is working in the background, leaving the mouse to freeze th

Step 1:
For a standard trackball mouse, unplug the mouse, turn it over and then twist the retaining ring counter-clockwise to remove it. Remove the trackball inside the mouse. Clean the trackball with warm water and dry carefully. Clean the rollers inside the mouse with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. Replace the trackball, then secure it with the retaining ring. Clean the outside of the mouse with rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball. For an optical or wireless mouse, clean the bottom of the mouse and the surface it sits on with a damp cloth. Solve Hardware Problems Make sure the mouse is connected properly. The connector will either be USB or PS/2. A PS/2 connector is color-coded green and can only be inserted in one direction. Check for any bent or broken pins or damage, then carefully plug it in, making sure the connection is secure. Reboot the computer. Connect the mouse to another computer, then reboot the PC. If the mouse works after testing it on another computer, the problem is most likely with your PC or operating system. Also, try a different mouse on your computer. If there is no PC freeze, your mouse is probably malfunctioning. Switch to a different USB port. Sometimes mouse freeze will occur if the mouse is connected to a USB hub. Connect the mouse directly to one of the USB ports on your PC. Try different ports until you find one that works. Replace the batteries. If you have a wireless mouse, replace the batteries with fresh ones. Also, try using a different kind of mouse pad. Sometimes surface imperfections can interfere with the operation of a wireless or optical mouse. Install more RAM or memory. If your PC doesn't have enough memory, PC mouse freeze may occur when you are running resource intensive programs. Installing more RAM will help your PC run more efficiently. Solve Software Problems Check for device conflicts. When you install another device on your computer, it can sometimes conflict with a PC mouse. Remove any new hardware and drivers you may have installed, then reboot the computer. Reinstall PC mouse drivers. In Windows, open "Control Panel" then "System." Select the "Device Manager" tab, then scroll to and select your mouse. Uninstall any drivers that are listed. Unplug the mouse and reboot the PC. Plug the mouse back in, reboot the system, then allow Windows to reinstall the drivers if prompted. Remove viruses. PC mouse freeze and other serious problems can be caused by viruses lurking on your system.Set the program to run a complete scan every 24 hours.

My black berry baal stucking and not working...can suggest the sollution

I remembered an article some months ago which mentioned the coloring the of the Pearl's trackball by coloring the LED beneath the trackball. Finally I realized that removing the pearl's cover would the best way to get access to its sensor and clean it. By the way, this should work for all BlackBerry devices that carry a trackball around like BlackBerry Pearl, Curve, 8800, 8820 and 8830.
The silver ring which covers the trackball can easily be removed if you use a small screwdriver to lift it at the outer side of the ring. Be careful here! Like you should be during the whole process as all parts have very small plastic nipple which can break very easy. When the silver plastic ring is removed you will see the inner trackball component which can be removed completely. Before doing this you should carefully remove the silver metal ring that holds the trackball component in its position. The trackball component itself can also be carved. For every direction the ball can roll to you'll find a sensor wheel. Those wheels are mostly carrying some gunk you should clean them from. Once this is done put everything back together to the place the pieces came from and secure the trackball with the silver plastic ring you removed in the first step. Your BlackBerry's trackball should be back working now.

Trackball 8800 Blackberry

Your trackball needs to be cleaned. You have two options.

1) You can send it in to be repaired, or
2) You can clean the trackball yourself.

To clean the trackball yourself:

The silver ring which covers the trackball can easily be removed if you use a small screwdriver to lift it at the outer side of the ring. Be careful here! (Like you should be during the whole process as all parts have very small plastic nipple which can break very easy.)

When the silver plastic ring is removed you will see the inner trackball component which can be removed completely. Before doing this you should carefully remove the silver metal ring that holds the trackball component in its position.

The trackball component itself can also be carved. For every direction the ball can roll to you’ll find a sensor wheel. Those wheels are mostly carrying some gunk you should clean them from.

Once this is done put everything back together to the place each pieces came from and secure the trackball with the silver plastic ring that you removed in the first step.

Your BlackBerry’s trackball should be back working now.

I have blackberry pearl and the white roller does not move downwords

I had the same problem and after being told that the sensor was more than likely fried and that I could "upgrade" with the purchase of a new phone I tried to "clean" the sensor myself. I used a can of "Dust Off" )compressed air that you use to clean your keyboard) - shooting the keyboard of the phone from various angles and it did the trick. Good luck!

Model 64213 (not a wireless model) Trackball is not working smoothly - already tried cleaning it and still gets "stuck" especially moving left and right. Up and down works well.

This is because the wheels that move with he trackball are getting stuck.

Try cleaning the inside housing.(The part that holds that trackball) Mainly, the tiny wheels that grab the trackball. Normal use can build up a gummy buildup inside that can be easily rubbed off with a cloth. Since the housing is underneath the trackball, there can be a greater potential for lint, crumbs or anything else to get inside as well. Clen in there, empty out any debree and you will find ti moves much smoother.

alternatively, one of the tiny wheels could be damaged and is not rolling properly. Roll each one with your finger to see if you can feal anything rough or if the wheel is rubbing against something.
