    8703 Track Wheel Issue

    Advertisement



    Anyone know why the track wheel would occasionaly skip forward or backward? It did this before but went away on its own. I almost seems like it has dust or something breaking the contacts (the phone is only 4 month old and it hasn't been dropped or other wise abused). Any ideas, it is maddening trying to scroll through my email. I have already checked options-keyboard/screen, that only effects key rate.

    I'm thinking that it's gotten dirty somehow - Find a non-conductive electronics spray cleaner (I use Radio Shack's "Color TV Tuner Cleaner" on components of a sound system I run)and try it. If that doesn't do it, get a T6 and do surgery - the trackwheel is really easy to figure out when you see it nekkid! Clear instructions on how to take apart your 87 are at YouTube, do a search and it comes up at the top of the list.

    Thanks, I am thinking the same way. I just thought I would check and see if this is a frequent problem.

    Contact cleaner seems to have cleared it up, thanks!
