What is the best way to clean my trackball??

Rubbing Alcohol??

For some reason my trackball gets stuckk :(

Should I call tmo for a replacement or what??? If I do do I gotta downgrade my software from .67 to default .64

Use canned air....although, what I do is just blow on it real hard while I'm rolling it. That usually fixes it when it sticks. If youre talking about the thing turning redish brown, nobody has figured out how to clean it yet.

Press firmly and roll the ball. Always seems to get it working again.

I had someone call me Thursday in a panic because the Pearl would scroll up but not down.

I had her firmly, yet delicately, take the 8100 in one hand and smack it like you would a remote control. Surprisingly, it worked.

I've used rubbing alcohol to clean off the pearl and keyboard from dirt and fingerprint smudges. Haven't had any problems with trackball sticking. Also I try not to use my device when my hands are dirty and it's worked so far on keeping it in good clean shape.

I thought it had something to do with using your Pearl in the bathroom! <vbg>
