    Track Ball going crazy

    Advertisement



    Hello everyone, My name is Milan and I was happy user ow blackberry 8310.

    A few days ago I start having problem with my track ball. Track ball not reacting on clicking since I press harder, or start clicking and opening application by him self, without touching my phone. When I m scrolling it is Ok but clicking is screwed up.

    I tried to open and clean - nothing happen. Still same.

    I m using at&t unlocked 8310 on T-mobile.


    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Welcome to the Stacks.

    Same thing happened to me with my first Curve. I had to do an exchange with my service provider and they gave me a new one.

    Thanks for answering :-)

    My service provider is T-mobile, but I have AT&T label on my Curve?!

    To go to T-mobile or AT&T?

    I opened mine Curve and under the track ball is some touch switch attached on "mother board" of phone.

    I guess that little thing soldered to "mother board" of cell phone need to be changed ?!?

    UPDATE!

    I used a QTIP with some alocohol and cleaned out the chip connector behind the ball on my 8100 and the clicking works again!! YEY!!


    **Make sure your battery is out and the phone has been off for at least a minute.
