    Did you perform the trackball maintenance as outlined above? Use a very slight amount of rubbing alcohol on a QTip to swab the brass square in the handheld just under the trackball assembly.
    In case you got moisture in the keyboard, wrap securely in a paper towel and put it in a baggy with rice for 24 hours. Let me know if this helps

    hmm the rice thing seem to work, but it still does that entering by itself thing for a few letters so im guessing to put it back in for a little longer?
