When you see this, you simply have to continue use of the mouse until
it is jumping quite horribly, *then* let go for 5 seconds, fingers
well clear. Letting go is the opposite of human instinct but what
happens is that when the software detects horrible jumps, it will
attempt to recalibrate the mouse, and this can only happen if your
fingers are well away.

Alternatively you can use the 4-key method that Martin mentioned in
order to force a recalibration.

Do you hear the startup tone as you turn the XO on? If so you are
probably seeing

Does it work in the OpenFirmware self-test diagnostics?
We have seen this failure in paraguay too and have fixed it by
replacing the camera from spare-parts machines. (replacing the camera
is trivial once you have disassembled enough to get access to the
under-side of the motherboard)
