Is this one of the rubberized balls or it is hard plastic? I have a hard
plastic trackball that has recently been giving me a few similar issues.
The plastic itself is actually starting to pitch/scratch and that seems to
be it. So you may have to hunt for a replacement ball or try polishing your
current one.
