    Help Trackball Problem

    Advertisement



    A one day old 8830 and all of a sudden the trackball only moves left and right. I was in the browser when it happened so I have no idea what happened. I tried resetting but that didn't work. Anybody ever have this happen?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~im on my second 8830e and yes, it probably needs to be cleaned. If you dont already have one, get a good case and never put it in a pocket without one.

    That does not appear to be the problem as on further investigation, it moves left, right and up but not down. I did try cleaning it just in case but it did not help so I guess I have to take it back and start over again.

    Well when there is dust or anything small under the trackball sometimes it can stop it moving in 1 or more directions.

    If you research pinstack a bit you will see that a lot of people tend to have this problem.

    Some people remove the trackball all together and clean it. There are pictures available on pinstack if you wanted to know how to do this.

    Sometimes a one-minute battery pull cures this.

    I had a problem like this, my track ball would not move scroll up. I could go left/right and down. The problem resolved itself after a couple of hours.
