Yesterday I cleaned my Logitech Trackman Wheel (trackball) mouse as it was getting quite dirty. I turned off the computer and unplugged the mouse. I used a rag (piece of an old t-shirt) and rubbing alcohol to carefully rub the outside. I removed the ball and cleaned inside and the ball itself.
I let it all dry for 20 minutes and plugged the mouse back in. When I got got back into Windows my cursor was missing! I moved the mouse around and there was no trace of the cursor. Using the keyboard I opened up Mouse in Control Panel, sure enough Windows saw the device plugged in and in use. After a little playing with the mouse I noticed that the cursor hadn't "disappeared", but stuck in the lower lefthand corner below the taskbar, over the Start button, which was displaying the "hover" state.
I plugged it in to another computer and got the same result: the cursor is invisible, but stuck in the lefthand corner.
I bought this mouse on E-bay about a year ago as Logitech stopped making them a couple of years ago at a great price. It's been the best pointing device I've ever used. Logitech has a replacement model, a wireless device
, but I would rather not buy a replace it if I can avoid it.
Is there any way I can repair this mouse?
Thanks for your help.
