    somethings loose - it rattles

    Advertisement



    ok just noticed my bb's trackball housing (inner white ring), underneath the chrome ring is loose. I shake my phone and hear this rattle. The trackball itself works completely fine, but it's annoying to hear this rattle even if i'm scrolling up and down fast. Is anyone experiencing this do I need to replace the housing? or can i tighten this someway? or Are all pearls like this? ..........Yes My audible roll is on mute.

    You can always remove it and see. You can just pry the silver part up with just a finger nail. Just don't use too much force or you might break the tabs, but it will take some force to get it loose.

    Just be careful with the metal piece that actually holds the assembly in, it's very delicate.

    I just gave my phone a shake and can't hear anything rattling. It doesn't sound "normal" to me, but if everything is working, I guess I'd try to let it go.
    As always, just my opinion...

    it's probably that thin aluminum "brace" thing that goes on top of the trackball assembly. mine got a bit bent and loose when i was cleaning my pearl so i just removed it.
