View Full Version : NEWBIE- Trackwheel question

06-01-2006, 09:53 AM
Hey Guys,
Be nice, I am a newbie.
I seem to be heaving some problems with my trackwheel.
I am able to SCROLL up and down on my Main Page but when I press on my Trackwheel, I am unable to select the ICON. The only way to do it now is to press the arrow key.
As well, the button right below the TRACKWHEEL has seized to work. I cannot select that as well.
I hope someone can help.
Did I inadvertently lock something to cause this to happen.
It was working right up to this point?
And no~ I didnt drop it :)

Are you in the right forum? You have an 8700? Nothing should lock based on the trackwheel if the home screen icons are showing.

You can completely lock the screen if you have passwords enables.

Also see my tips document on ways to avoid using the trackwheel.

Yes, I have an 8700r.
The trackwheel is not locking but when I scroll down to an certain ICON,it will not allow me to select it. When I press on the trackwheel, nothing happens.

As well as the trackwheel not being able to select an icon, the power on/off button does not work. The only way I can turn off is to take my batteries out!!!!!! Yikes. What is going on?
No, I am not the original user. Please help.:oops:
