    Pearl trackball woes

    Advertisement



    I just gotten myself a pearl (off ebay) and noticed a problem with trackball as its very sensitive to pressure. Meaning, slight pressure of the ball registers a "press" of it, when i dont intend it to do so. I opened up trackball cleaned things, was good for a bit but then was back to it again and its annoying. my question is, what makes the spring mechanism in the click?

    What im trying to get to is if i buy a seperate trackball set, will my problems go away? Thx in advance

    the metal tab that comes in contact with the logic board is probably touching already or is very close to touching so it doesnt take much to do a PRESS. try bending it inward towards the ball and see if that helps!! Warning Do A your Own Risk!!!!!!!!!!

    I bought one from there about 2 months ago. Everything came as ordered, just don't expect it anytime soon. They say 7-10 days but mine was more like 10-12. I had forgotten it was shipped from Hong Kong
