You can open it up yourself and see if there is something loose that you can just plug back in. YouTube has tons of videos on taking your model BB apart and putting it back together.

As aiharkness stated, you shouldn't lose a finger or anything like that by opening your BlackBerry. However, you will void the warranty. If you don't want to go down that route, do you have wireless insurance? If so, perhaps making a claim is the best option.

Checking the trackpad and/or changing it isn't that difficult to do if you don't mind tinkering with gadgets.

I rebuilt a Honda carburetor one time. I had no idea there would be so many o-rings that looked alike but were different. I didn't get hurt but I regreted starting the job. I should have just bought a rebuilt one. Thought instead I would have fun and learn something.
