trackball not scrolling down
Hello, this morning i just realized my blackberry(8100 t-mo) will only scroll down if i push down on it. it feels a bit "slick" compared to the other directions(usually has small "click" when you scroll), im wondering if its durty, or if it got damaged somehow? thanks -m

It may just have some debris trapped in there. You could try giving it a blast with some canned air, just keep the can upright so none of the liquid gets in there. Just working and rolling it around a bunch may help too.
I change mine all the time when they get dirty or less responsive. You can buy them for $8 for the trackball assembly and chrome ring from cnn.cn It ships from China so can take about 1 1/2 - 2 weeks to arrive.
There are videos on youtube that show you how to take the trackball out, it's easy to do.
UG, being good with computers i should have thought of that -_- thank you, fixed...
Oh Good, glad you got it working again
