blackberry perl trackball doing screwey things!!!
My wife has a blackberry perl from vzw and every time she uses the center trackball/button it activates the right soft key can anyone tell me how to fix it or do I need to file the insurance on it, the phone is used and abused, and its definatly a hardy phone it has been the only phone to last my wife longer than 6 months, thank you for you assistance in this manner!
You could try cleaning the trackball.... I use an electronic wipe and put the BB in lock mode, wipe - roll and push down on the ball and try to get whatever might be in there out.
Otherwise the track ball assembly may need repair.
BB parts if you decide to fix on your own:
We have tutorials on trackball changing. I can look for it in a bit if you decide to go that route.
have you tried disassembling the trackball and cleaning it?
here is a thread that will help you (with pics)
I had a similar problem, and thought the Pearl was possessed. http://forums.pinstack.com/f187/bb_i...licking-87609/
Solution? VZW replaced the thing!
And if you don't want to take it apart, turn the phone off, and use a Qtip dipped in rubbing alcohol. Scrub the trackball, let it dry for a few minutes, and see if that fixes it. If it still doesn't, then you will need to take it apart.
Maybe there's nothing wrong with the trackball maybe its haunted n its possessed lmao
Well its a short in the main board, because I had my wife take bbm off of the right soft key and it resolved this problem, so would this be considered warrenty or insurance?
