    quick question about the trackball

    Advertisement



    ok so what happens sometimes is when i push in the trackball it like im pushing the [qw] button instead. its really getting to be a pain. i think its more of a software problem since i took the trackball apart and cleaned it. it dosent happen all the time but its getting to be more frequent. and i dont have insurance since i got the BB from a friend.

    so anybody else have this problem? software or the trackball mechinism it self?
    im about to reinstall the software so maybe that will help, iv never done it before so i hope it dosent screw anything up.

    had the same problem. pull your battery out and leave it out for 10 mins or so. worked for me.

    yeah that's pretty strange, it does sound like a bug!!!

    Well I'm not sure exactly where to direct you, but maybe (just maybe) re-installing your OS would help!!
    But wait to see if anybody else (more experienced) can give their input

    (should've refreshed before posting, but try what mysmyrrh suggests)

    when I said leave it out for 10 mins, I meant 10 mins. Pulling the battery and putting it back in after about 30 secs doesn't work.

    im running a full restore anyway right now, i backed up everything. So if it does it again its a hardware problem and looks like ill either have to deal with it or start shopping for a new phone. :cry:
