are now availabe as FRU. Therefore, if a mouse fails to operate or should
it perform erratically, it may need a ball replacement. Because of the
delicate nature of this procedure, replacement of mouse balls should
only be attempted by properly trained personnel. Before proceeding,
determine the type of mouse balls by exmining the underside of the mouse.
Domestic balls will be larger and harder than foreign balls. Ball removal
procedures differ depending upon manufacturer of the mouse. Foreign
balls can be replaced using the pop-off method. Domestic balls are replaced
using the twist-off method. Mouse balls are not usually static sensitive.
However, excessive handling can result in sudden discharge. Upon completion
of ball replacement, the mouse may be used immediately. It is recommended
that each replacer have a pair of spare balls for maintaining optimum
customer satisfaction, and that any customer missing his balls should
suspect local personnel of removing these necessary items.
