    Trackball getting stuck?

    Advertisement



    Ok so ive been having problems with the trackball

    it doesnt happend alot it only happens when i dont use the pearl for a while..
    usually when i use the trackball to go from left to right or up and down it works fine...but lately when i try to go right the ball it moves but on the screen of the pearl it wont move it will stay on the same spot...i dont know if the track ball is messed up or something....its pretty annoying since i just got the pearl i havent dropped it or anything

    any one know what it might be..or should i just exchange my pearl and get a new one through the mail since i have that 1 year warranty exchange on it

    I experienced the same thing a couple of days ago. The ball felt like it was moving under my thunb but it didn't make the cursor move from right to left. I played with it a little and pressed a little bit harder and got it working again.

    I read somewhere here on the stack that you should clean the trackball with compressed air. Maybe i'll try that.

    Remember when using the compressed air, not to hold the bottle of air upside down. This will cause the CO2 liquid to form at the nosel and spray out the bottle and into/onto your Pearl, causing it to freeze and/or cause water damage. Never hold the compressed air can upside down. And do not shake it.
