    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I'm not too familiar with what it looks like under the trackball, but is there a way for you to just use your finger or a small enough object push down on whatever the trackball would normally push down on?

    Re: Reset Pearl without trackball

    Pcpro I would be real careful though about trying to mess around with the parts under the trackball, as these are sensitive components and putting other objects in there could damage those parts making the BB in need of further repair and that replacement trackball you got on it's way worthless.
    Be careful.

    Re: Reset Pearl without trackball

    What I've been able to tell when I've disassembled the 8130's trackball is that the trackball has two functions. It pushes a button (for select), and it rotates very small magnets which pass overtop of those four semiconductors. Those semiconductors are not exactly transistors but Hall Effect sensors. This allows contact-less scrolling.

    As for navigating without a trackball... you're pretty much out of luck unless you purchase a new trackball.
