    Pearl Issue, Opening Menus, and Apps on it's own...

    Advertisement



    Hello everyone, I have an 8100 pearl and have seen posts about this issue by others who are having the same problem but I don't think i noticed a sure fix for it. what seems to be hapening is that the phone seems to be opening up the menu and selecting an action on it's own. I noticed it was doing his in the middle of the night when the phone kept flashing on and when I looked at it it was doing it. I've tried taking out the trackball to clean around and in it (haven't used a q-tip w/alcohol yet). Was wondering if anyone else had any ideas. I had just upgraded it to the latest tmobile software, 4.2.1.107. It is out of warranty so if you have any ideas it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Hmm, I've never heard of this. Did you try pulling the battery for 30 seconds? Bump in hopes of some help for ya!

    If you have ruled out the trackball as the problem I would suggest you re-install your operating system and see if that helps.

    I know exaclty how to fix the problem. Sprinkle holy water on your window ceals and door ways. Put your blackberry underneath a Bible... or call Ghost Hunters. Sounds like you have a Polterguiest.


    No, I joke. I don't know, never had the problem.

    I just took my pearl apart this morning, bent the pin underneath the trackball up a little higher, and cleaned around the insides...hopefully this helps the trackball is springier which is nice. I'll keep you all posted...
