    Broken track wheel - documented short cut keys

    Advertisement



    Well, my track wheel will scroll, but won't click :cry:
    I figured out some of the short cuts (reply, forward, using the bottom right for 'enter'). Once I am in the email and reply, how do I send? Is there a list of documented short cuts for the 7100g? I broke down and ordered a Pearl last night on eBay (you don't EVEN wanna know what I spent) but that won't arrive for a few days, so now I REALLY need the shortcut keys!!

    You might want to check out http://www.discoverblackberry.com/pe...ips_tricks.jsp scroll to the lower section and select your model. They have a pretty extensive list of shortcuts. How did you break your scroll wheel? Was it just excessive usage? Good luck!
    Love my first BlackBerry (Pearl)!

    Not sure how it broke. Was working one minute, the next it wouldn't. I could probably take it apart and tweek it...maybe...but you guys had me jones'ing for a Pearl. LOL...
    Thanks for the links. Hopefully I won't need them for very long

    ok, so those were pretty much the same thing - thanks Hadyen and Lazyboy.
    When I press "send" or "green button" after composing the email, that takes me to my call log...it doesn't send the email any suggestions? am i missing something?

    I really don't think there is a shortcut for sending an email. I think this is going to be a real show stopper until you get it fixed. There are a couple of BB parts suppliers that should have replacement Trackwheel switches. I'll search for link when I have a little more time, unless someone posts them sooner.

    yeah, it is totally cramping my style!
    i can't even send SMS, as I can reply, but after that, I can't do anything! Hopefully the Pearl will come before the end of the week! I may take it apart tonight...if I really mess it up, I'll just insert SIM in another phone until the Pearl arrives. Thanks Rcbjr! You are always so helpful!

    update: couldn't find a screwdriver to fit the tiny screws on the device.

    NOTE: sticking letter opener in trackwheel spot and moving it around will shut off device but no harm, as of yet, to device itself.

    Does anybody have instructions/illustrations on how to replace the trackwheel on a 7230 or 7290?
