    You can take the trackball out of its casing and clean it if you like, it just might be a little hard to put back together. It is easier to use the de-natured alcohol(sp?) because you don't have to take the whole thing apart just to clean it.

    Re: Pearl has become black

    I too have encountered this "curse of the black pearl". I tried using denatured alcohol, but got absolutely no result. I'd like to try to take the trackball out, but I'm a bit nervous about the process. Has anybody tried (successfully) to remove the trackball?

    How do you wipe it when the pearl moves when you rub it?

    hahahaha Zim...... Well tacking the track ball out is not hard, putting it together isnt to hard either, just first time the thin metal plate will confuse you. After its fine, but i dont see the point of it, i tried using rubbing alcohol to clean the trackball and i got no results, so now i just use Coulor pearl and have all the LED turned on, so my trackball looks brand new, while if i turn it off, its like dark and barly visible.
