Default Scroll Broken

I have a weird issue.

I don't know if it has to do with the upgrade I did or not.

I can scroll up, left or right, but NOT DOWN - pretty annoying.

I would think it was mechanical - but up works fine.

Any thoughts ??

Probably doesn't have anything to do with the upgrade. More than likely there is somekind of obstruction in the trackball. There have been several posts made already with issues similar to yours. Search around and you should find one of those posts and see what has been done to try and remedy the issue.

Mine did the same thing last week. Turn it off or lock the keyboard, then push the trackball in and roll it around pretty hard. This freed mine up.

Blast it with some canned air. It always works when mine does the same.
