Default took apart trackball...big problem

Please Login to Remove!

when i say i took apart the trackball, i mean i REALLY took it apart.

it's in 6-7 different pieces and i have no idea how to reassemble.

i have

-the ball itself
-the 4 magnetic rollers
-the gray base where the trackball pops into
-the white plastic piece with the metal tab
-the 2 outer circular rings

biggest problem i am having is positioning the magnetic rollers into the grey base properly, then reattaching the white plastic part with the small metal tab onto the base. i can't seem to reattach it. the rest is easy i would think.

any help would be greatly appreciated. spend over an hour trying to get it back together

Why did you take it apart? Were you trying to color it, or was it not working right?

What lunkhead said. And if you cant get it working, shove it back together and get it repleced by your provider. Oh and you say 6-7 pieces, but you list 9.. maybe thats the problem?
