track ball broken
my track ball on the pearl will not scroll up. It goes down and side to side. Is there anyway I can get a replacement part?
You may not need a replacement track ball. I have run into this issue before and it occurs when the inside of the phone gets dirty. You can take the phone apart and clean out the inside where the track ball connects to the board. Some people I know just pop the ring around the ball off and blow it out with canned air. Otherwise yeah you can get replacement balls on eBay. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
synthalo is right, mine did the exact same thing. if it were JUST the ball itself, it would not work either way. I cleaned it and blew air into the trackball housing, did a hard rest and it works fine now.
