    Someone else just had the same problem and it sounds like they need to clean the trackball to get it running properly again. Glad your crisis was handled quick!

    It Also helps to cary it in a Case instead of a Pocket, less lint and stuff. Further I have resloved 80% of Pearl scrolling issues with caned air, Holding the ball in and blowing and then releasing it and blowing while circling around the ball while pushing it and realsing it. Every once in a while it is a software issue, but this is far less likley.

    I am sure it will happen again. It gets covered in finger grease and oils. Just like the old computer mouse with a ball that gets dirty and doesn't track very well. Just remember to do this again and you should be fine. Mine is only 3 weeks old and I've had to do this twice already. (and I use the case as well)
