    trackball

    Advertisement



    Of course a problem with the trackball.
    Here recently it has been sounding like its scratching against something when I scroll down and it messes with my scrolling down. I took that whole part out and put it back in the other way and now I have trouble scrolling up haha.

    It sounds like its snagged on the metalish piece under the ball.

    And ideas how to fix this?
    Its really getting in the way of trying to scroll and stuff.

    Thanks!

    Cinday if you take it out can you are anything lodged in the assembly itself?

    Haha I assumed you meant see since it puts are instead of see for me a lot.

    It doesn't look like anythings lodged in it at all.

    Re: trackball

    Okay, I took it all apart and cleaned everything and it's scrolling up and down perfectly fine now.
    But now... not as bad as it was scrolling up or down... I hear the scratching when I scroll right now haha.
    By doing that I'm thinking, could it be one of the magnetic thingys since that's pretty much the only thing that got switched around?

    Agh.

    Were you able to get a good look at it?

    Weird...

    Not really, since I wasn't thinking it was the rollers at first. I guess I'll pull it apart again.. for the 5th time... hahahaha.
    It's all good. Anything to fix my baby.

    Nothing really looks wrong with the magnetic part... it looks kind of stripped. Like instead of being completely black, it shows the silver part a little bit now.. well more than the others. :/

    I'd take it to your carrier, play dumb, don't offer ANY info they don't ask for, and let them play with it. Undoubtedly they'll scratch their head and offer a replacement.

    Re: trackball

    What if I didn't buy my phone from my company? I got it off craigslist... I'm assuming they wouldn't replace it. Maybe I will take it in anyway and just ask.

    Its doing better though. Its not scratching as bad.

    Re: trackball

    here's the rule... take it in to your provders store, PLAY DUMB. the guy behind the counter wants to do nothing more than avoid someone who wants to B*tch, so he will GLADLY play with your phone, if you're nice. just dont offer any info that he dosen't ask for.

    Not sure if that is a good idea. Usually they have a record if you purchase the phone from them or not. If its not that bad and you can deal with it then I would just do that. Or your other option is to purchase a new assembly from bbrepairshop.

    Or take it apart again and locate the problem roller.

    Hope this helps cinday.
