Usually they just need a good cleaning with a q-tip and some alcohol.

the ball is sloppy loose, so that ball doesn't track smoothly

sounds like the balls are in a retracted position.

Wash ball with soap n water, dry thoroughly and rub some candle wax (birthday candle) on trackball. Replace ball and move ball in holder in different directions until ball moves freely.

This was magic!! So so smooth now. I wish I had known this years ago as I love a trackball mouse.
