    Oh weird, nope I had to put it together myself. I couldn't link since some people copy right their pictures and so had to take some of my own. Since we can't link to the "other" forum where it had one of these, I decided we needed one. Some people don't like getting linked to so long story short Pinstack needed it so I made one.

    His is way more detailed. I just did it because a member asked for this. To answer your question I did not get it from cyberdrew. If I had known about his site I would have gladly linked to it. I'm not sure if he is affiliated with the "other" forum, if he is then it's against the forum rules to link to it. I just made it to help out a member/community and it didn't break any of PinStacks rules.

    Cheers.

    Re: Trackball Cleaning and Disassembly w/ PICTURES

    Wow,
    Didn't plan on doing this, but when I got up this morning my trackball was LOCKED--could not move left. Luckily I had a spare half hour before work so I dug in and started popping things apart. Definitely follow reddog's advice and mark the parts. I would in particular put a mark on the two white plastic halves that sandwhich the rollers between--I spent probably 10-12 minutes of a half hour process trying to figure out how to those went back together. The way they fit is surprisingly hard to see and I'm someone who is fairly experienced with taking stuff apart and tinkering.
    I do highly recommend this process to anyone having roller problems. After 8 or so months, my pearl had a tightly packed wad of fine lint nearly 1/2 the size of the trackball itself. I can't imagine how the "detergent dunk" of the whole assembly I've read about elsewhere on this forum could begin to
    address that degree of lint buildup, even if you did it regularly.
    It's actually a pretty easy process if you're careful to pay attention on dissassembly and mark the parts with a sharpie or something at every opportunity.

    Re: Trackball Cleaning and Disassembly w/ PICTURES

    Well my pearl finally stopped working up and down after much effort to fix. I disassembled it as per the pictures. There was a gisnt wad of lint trapped between the ball and the rollers. However I just can't get it assembled again! I've taken it to a few repairers in the area but they don't have a clue. If anyone can let me know where I can get a new trackball assembly in the London, Slough, UK area cheap please let me know. In the meantime Ive had to go back to my trusty 7105t.

    Re: Trackball Cleaning and Disassembly w/ PICTURES

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Thanks for the info. I did it in about 10 mins today at work. I didn't mark the pieces but I kept it together and only took one roller out at a time. Now I don't feel that grinding sensation when I use it. I actualy was telling someone the other day that the track ball needed cleaning instructions. I've been usein a trackball on my pc for years.
