    Interesting trackball issue

    Advertisement



    Having taken apart the trackball assembly for cleaning --which I do about every three to four weeks-- I discovered that it would scroll the cursor up, easily, but not down. Turning the trackball 180 degrees, and the cursor moved down, easily, but not up.

    The most interesting part, I thought, was that if I removed the light metal retainer, the cursor moved easily BOTH WAYS... as long as the assembly was in the proper orientation. Consequently, my BB 8100 no longer has the little retainer in it... only the larger, top one.

    IS IT TIME FOR A NEW TRACKBALL???? Kindly advise!!

    Thanks!!

    ouch. I would say if you're brave enough to clean the trackball, then go ahead and replace it and the housing.

    The input is appreciated! I went ahead ordered a new TB (only), but am uncertain what is meant by 'housing'.

    Thanks!
