    8100 trackball wont work

    Mrs chokem's trackball wont work. Upon further investigation I found that the water strip indicator is bright pink:cry:. I asked her what happened, and the only thing she could think of is that some of her hair products/gel from her purse got on it while her berry was in there. I had a spare trackball, so I popped it in and it still wont scroll. The phone works fine for dialing, calling and receiveing call, but the trackball wont scroll-anyone got any ideas?
