The trackball on my 7520 is messed up. Normally, when pushed in, I can feel a click, but now it does not click or go in at all. I just barely push it in to select something. Anybody know what is wrong or how to fix it?

Trackwheel is going bad. Contact your carrier for a replacement if it's still under warranty.

Yes I meant the trackwheel. I did not get it wet. Its such a pain to replace the phone, is there a way to clean out or fix the trackwheel myself? I have a BB 7520 at home with a broken screen, could I transplant the trackwheel from that phone to my current one?

you can do that, however, there hasn't been any disassembly "how to"s for a 7520, not that i've seen or heard of anyway. unless, someone here has something on it. the problem might also be someting related to the trackwheel hardware, but not the trackweel itself.

yes this can be done

I have done this with a 7290 and an 8700

I am not familiar with the working of the 7520

Does anyone have internal pics of the 7520

shapelessbb is a member here he may be able to help as he does repair work
