    chrome around trackball came off

    Advertisement



    There are 6 prongs that hold it in place and 2 are broken. It will stay in place but pop off very easily. Any suggestions other than trying to glue it? I bought it online not thru tmo so...... And not lookin to get a replacement cuz I might have water damage.

    If you glue it on, be VERY careful...If you get any on the ball itself or the sensor underneath it, you're screwed.

    I thought airplane glue was a good solution for myself as well!

    What do you mean Splitz have you tried it? This thing is always ready to pop off. I wonder how sturdy this thing holds up over time. I've had it 4 months now. Makes you wonder about the loose buttons I'm bout to buy a big bottle of elmers and just remove the keypad now and reglue it just to be safe.

    PIN me, 23DB1D23, I can send you the chrome part.

    My pearl fell in the snow and doesn't work anymore. It was seen by my pc so I backed it up and did a switch between two BB's. I was even able to reload OS in its 'dead state' but still didn't help it come back to life.

    Thought of having a burial ceremony but I just couldn't. Organ donation seems more appropraite. If anyone else needs usable parts from this pearl PM me.
