I had the same problem with my 8120. I eventually had to send it back and get a warranty replacement.

you can attempt to clean it using the sticky instructions in the pearl forum, or, you can buy a replacement trackball off of ebay.

I used to get this problem every once in a while. I would resolve it by pushing the ball IN and turning it in the direction I needed. It usually worked. Then I cleaned the housing using the sticky in this section, and it made a HUGE difference.

Good Luck

If cleaning it doesn't work, you can buy a new one on ebay for $9.99. Some sites sell them for upwards of $50.

I had to replace mince because when I took it out to clean it, I discovered that one of the rollers wasn't budging.
