    Colour you trackball problem?

    Advertisement



    I lost my trackball about a month ago and im just now getting a replacement...
    i bought it on ebay...and of course its not exactly made by RIM...
    but when i try to change the color to :
    red-yellow-blue etc... it stays the same its sorta a pinkish whiteish color...
    is it because its a cheap knock-off trackball?

    Keep in mind this ONLY works for the 8100 and NOT the 8110

    the trackball that you got is probably something solid inside that keeps the light from going through...and yeah, there's a couple free versions of color pearl, don't waste your money buying it...

    I have the 8100...it could be maybe water-damage that i got a month ago when i didnt have a trackball....
    I know it has to be the product because when i change the color the LED lights dont change color there always RE,BLUE,AND GREEN..

    The color pearl only works on the 8100 and nothing else, I know I tried.

    You could replace the track ball with a marble. If you want the colors to show then use a clear marble. Simple, its not the same but still works.

    If you really really want to you can actually use the old method before the program came out of taking the trackball out and manually coloring the white led with whatever color sharpie you wish the trackball color to be. It EASILY comes off with a q-tip and nail polish remover. Just be VERY careful how you take the trackball apart if you want to do it.

    If he put a new one in, I think he knows how to take it apart.

    I never said he didn't know how to take it apart. I was just explaining the way I did it way before the program came out that changed the LEDs. No need to get snappy with me.
