    trackball clicking itself

    Advertisement



    I just bought a 8100, and I'm having problems with the trackball (it's used). It will randomly click itself sometimes once, sometimes mulitple times, without me touching it. And sometimes it won't click at all when I press it. I've already read the thread on cleaning the trackball and I've done that. Is there anything else I can do?

    BTW, there are red X's on the battery, I heard somewhere that this means it's water damaged, is this true?

    Thanks.

    red on sticker means water or water vapor(steam) came into contact with the sticker


    as for the trackball, have you tried cleaning it out?

    Red X's on the battery? are you talking about the white strip thats on the battery itself? cause my pearl is a month old and those red X's have always been there as far as I can remember.

    the red x's will blur when it gets wet...its the battery indicator for water damage.

    SO yes the red x's are suppose to be there.
