Default 8820 Trackball gone faulty

Please Login to Remove!

I've seen other threads about cleaning a dirty trackball but my problem is different - I fear it's broken. I dropped the handset, battery fell out but it seemed to recover OK. About 24 hours later, suddenly the trackball press no longer operates as an activate and the right button no longer works as a back or cancel. They misbehave in very consistent ways.

If I select a desktop icon and press the trackball, it behaves as if I had pressed letter U - opens the address book at U. Each subsequent press adds the letter "uo". The back key is simmilar but the letters are "hl"

I've had to find new ways to run the phone without these - and it is do-able!

Any suggestions?
