    My track ball light is not bright like it used to be. I don't know if I have blown any LEDs or what? Any suggestions or help?

    Try cleaning it, after a while it gets dirt and oils on it from your hands.

    Every once in a while I take a rubbing alcohol pad and rub it around a q-tip and then wipe the trackball gently. It works really well. Make sure it isn't to soaked though.

    Thanks, but I've tried that many times and its still dim??? I just removed my track ball cover and there is only one LED light. I believe there are supposed to be four.

    Not anymore.

    P.S. I'm sorry Drice, but I don't know how many LEDs should be down there.
