Having problems with your Toshiba Tecra M1 PC Laptops ?

Cursor only moves left to right

\015 When I try to use the eraser mouse on my keyboard the cursor will only move left to right. If I connect a mouse with a cable it works fine. Must be a problem with the eraser mouse. Suggestions?\015

Answers :

This device is monitored via a kind of strain gauge; that is why it does not seem to move; it does move but not noticeably.
\015\012If it is no longer responsive in one or the other direction, I would call it dead.
\015\012I have never seen one of these loose but I would expect to find a small sealed housing that has an equally small, multicontact connector attached.
\015\012If you are unlucky, Toshiba may have attached this to the keyboard's platform requiring the replacement of it as a unit.
\015\012
\015\012On most laptops, the keyboard is fairly easy to remove and if you can accomplish that, restoring the truncated joy stick is probably not difficult.
\015\012Sorry I cannot give you detailed instructions for disassembly.

Drfting cursor The cursor will from time to time drift off to the top right corner or the lower left one, and will not come out, even with firm appilication of pressure on the accupoint.
