    Weird, i was reading this earlier today, and now my trackball is messed up. Used a canned spray, didnt work. Did a reset then waited for couple of seconds and its UP and running again. Yes, its only the scroll UP not working.

    About spraying the track ball grooves with air pressured cans, here's something to consider. There's a chance that the excessive cold may compromise the integrity of the plastic. If it gets too cold, the plastic could freeze...leading to long term issues. CS might have an alternative that is safer.

    What about cleaning the trackball with some kind of solvent? My trackball doesn't really stick, but it's ateying to get a little discolored, and I wonder if this is going to start gumming up the mechanism.

    Solvents can be scary since some of them have harsh chemicles in them. You might really mess up the underneath part where the trackball sits if you got too much in there or something .

    I am having the same issue as posted in this thread, except it is in the DOWN direction. I wonder if it could be that the trackballs are getting dirty?

    I am going to try and clean mine..

    Re: Trackball problems!

    I'm having a similar problem but I think I have some sand or some type of dirt in there. It rolls left right and down fine, but I can really hear it grinding when it rolls up. Sometimes it just dosen't work going up. I've tried canned air, which really didnt seem to work and ive also tried getting it out with a piece of paper but I can't seem to get it far enough in there to move it. Any other things I should try?

    neymelo,

    Try a Cold Reboot (Battery Out, wait 15-30 sec, Battery Back in) and see if that helps. Let us know how it works out.

    It's funny how I never had any problems with my trackball even when almost everyone did.

    Re: Trackball problems!

    I had this happen a long time ago. it was sticking when trying to scroll up. I ended up popping out the little metal peice around the track ball and taking the ball and thing out from underneath. I wouldnt suggest doing this, it took me 45 mins to get it back together. It's a pain in the ***!
