    New Pearl Assembly w/pearl?

    Advertisement



    Well as my last post the scrolling wasnt working too well so I took the pearl out and cleaned the contacts and lint monsters crawling in there. That fixed my scrolling issue however the other issue where I press it in and it doesnt work all the time is still happening. It looks like the little metal contact under the pearl was squished flat...probably from too much use and therefore isnt making good contact with the board underneath it.

    I figure if im going to replace the assembly I might as well get a new clean pearl as well as mine is no where near white anymore lol. Is there a cheap reliable place to get one? or possibly local stores you know of *even better* that might sell something like that? I no longer have a warranty on the phone so that is not an option.

    Thanks!

    Yeah I have had friends Buy from there and have been happy. Me, I cleaned mine in a Bleach water solution and then rinsed it and let it dry. Did Great, but with her flat contact Issue this is the best route. Ther is another place http://www.bbrepairshop.com/ but they are a littl more expensive

    I got a slightly used, 3-month-old, 8100 from eBay. I have been quite happy with it, so far.

    Yes, if you're a heavy user. Please try not to hi-jack threads and keep them on topic.

    Yeah, this is the same place I got my trackball assembly (Hong Kong). I got it and just popped it in. I would recommend them although the turn around is closer to 10 days at the minimum.
