Lock the keyboard, and press firmly on the trackball and move it in the direction it does not work...

You can also try and blow some compressed air under the track ball. By the way do you carry the BB in your pocket...

Make sure that you press it down with some force and roll it while you are still pressing in. Roll it the opposite direction that it scroll. Go back and forth a few times while it depressed. It should dislodge the debris that is most likely causing the issue.

That happened with my 8100. The trackball has 4 roller pins in it. One of the pins got off track so I had to take it apart and realign it. I don't recommend this. But a new trackball asembly on eBay. Should be a few bucks

Are you sure the sensitivity setting for horizontal is set high enough?
