    More Trackball Problems?

    Advertisement



    i have searcher around but have not found a similar problem (if you have a link plz help me out)

    ok, my problem....
    it seems that my BB pearl's (8100) trackball is being pressed in when i do not press it. now i cannot even press the trackball in at all. (it presses in...it just does not do anything).

    so with the TB being clicked ramdomly (like it randomly presses enter) my phone calles get cut off...text messages are sent in the middle of typing them....

    the regular "enter" key works...but the TB enter function does not work.....it now does nothing at all when i press it in and now it is as though the TB is being presses randomly in the middle of operations.

    HELP!!!

    Its possible you may have some lint under the track ball...

    Have you tried cleaning or perhaps using compressed air?

    Re: More Trackball Problems?

    you know the one thing I love about blackberrys is 95% of the problems that occur on one can be fixed without using a handset exchange... Seems like anytime I would suggest to do one, there's a solution that normally works without having to do one. Service books, clearing logs, soft/ hard wipe, re-intalling OS, installing current OS, settings. I try telling this to people who buy "cell phones" from me and they just don't get this...

    i have taken the TB out ant tried cleaning it and taking the battery out and resetting it...i even wipe the memory and started from new.
    literally the phone could be laying down.....only touching the table and it will act as though the TB has been pushed in. the TB will scroll fine but it does not respond when i push it in.

    Did you take the trackball apart fully. I cleaned mine a few times and the only way got it cleaned well was taking it apart. Not a nice job but works class now.
    Not easy but worth it. Now have not issues.
