    BB Is Auto-Clicking!

    Advertisement



    For no reason whatsoever (no drops, spills, sandstorms), the 8130 just started selecting the last icon highlighted on the screen, started the application, and most times then defaulted to the camera and started taking shots (the shutter icon even moved as if the trackball had been pressed). Even with a key lock on, it thought a key had been pressed and prompted for the unlock sequence. I thought the side key was being squeezed by the skin or something, so I just stripped it down and set it on the desk and watched - and it started doing it's own thing again! Possessed no doubt.

    Removed the trackball and shot everything with compressed air. The copper contact at the bottom of the trackball bed looks a little discolored, but so far so good.

    Anyone else have this happen?

    Nope. That did not work. Now it's taking pictures on its own. With the trackball REMOVED. Wakes itself up, starts the camera application and shoots. WTF?

    You should consider security wiping your BlackBerry and reinstalling the device software.

    Wiped it. And it started auto-clicking again.

    Verizon is sending out a replacement.

    When's the Storm coming out again ;-)
