    Thumbs down Trackball & Keyboard problem

    Advertisement



    Hey,
    just get unlock code few days ago, start playing with my BB, and now have one big problem..

    Trackball don't for for CLICK (or Push in).
    I can move around the icons, but I can not choose anything (can't open any application). Only I can do is using my ENTER button.

    Keyboard stop working properly (ALT and SHIFT button)
    Usually I can hold ALT and write as many symbols I want to. Now I can click ALT then release ALT key and then I can choose symbol. Same problems with SHIFT.

    ===
    I try to clean everything with all suggestions I found on this forum. Didn't help.
    ===

    If You have any idea I would be grateful.

    Re: Trackball & Keyboard problem

    I know this is a simple suggestion, but have you tried a battery pull?

    You could also try a newer OS. http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com/blog.php?b=86

    I hope you get it fixed!

    When in doubt, pull the battery out.

    Re: Trackball & Keyboard problem

    your trackball, the connection to the trackball might be a big damaged, you can bend the pin a bit upwards. But it seems like you've already tried that..

    This is a issue that comes when the trackball has been pushed to hard.

    Regarding the keyboard I didn't understand your issue.

    Re: Trackball & Keyboard problem

    Thanks for quick reply.

    TRACKBALL PROBLEM
    Yes, I try everything. Nothing helps.
    How can be broken? I have it just 1 month. I almost didn't use it. Is there any way to fix it?
    Don't sure if You understand, but I never opened and clean trackball before. I clean it now because I was thinking it will fix my trackball.

    KEYBOARD PROBLEM (maybe better explanation)
    You can hold ALT button (let say, when you are writing email) and you can write as much you want symbols. When you release button then you are writing letters again.

    I can not do that. If I hold ALT and try to click some symbol it wont work.
    I need click on ALT and then I can choose some symbol, then again click ALT and chose symbol.....

    I hope so you will understand this.
    Sorry, but my english is not so good.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I had a trackwheel problem like this. I couldn't select anything. My only option was to replace my 7105t and I got a Pearl for it.

    Re: Trackball & Keyboard problem

    Thanks.
    I was scared that would be my only option.

    So much problems in just one month I think it isn't destiny for me and BB. Maybe I should try with SE-P1 or Iphone...

    I will reply what I succeed with exchange.

    Re: Trackball & Keyboard problem

    Just one more thing.
    I try once again reinstalling OS (keyweb321, That is Device Software - like device operation system)

    I get this error after everything is finished.
    Uncaught exeption:
    java.lang.NullPointerExcepton


    Yesterday, later, I notice few more strange things.
    Button "Q", "E", "R", "U", "O" are acting like ENTER!!! ???
    Now try to write sms or email. If You use some of those letters You will send unfinished email or sms.
    And yes, when you press some of this button (letters above) it is acting like you are pressing ENTER two times in row.


    And... updating OS didn't help anything.
