Default BlackBerry Curve 9300 - Inverted Trackpad

Please Login to Remove!

My tackpad has been inverted, in the sense that when I move up it goes to the right, when I move down it goes to the left, when I move right it goes up and when I move left it goes down.

Solutions tried but failed:
- Cleaning the blackberry and thumb with a dry cloth
- Reset blackberry (removing battery for some minutes)
- Changed the trackpad sensitivity

Any help welcomed!

Was it replaced? Is this a new BB?

It also could be an App causing the problem. Try deleting any added apps.

No it is not new.. My brother gave it to me after he got another phone. The trackpad was never replaced, the phone did fall a couple of times but nothing serious that needed repair.. and it was working fine. I have been using the phone for nearly a month and my brother had it like 1 year ago. I have also delete all apps just to be sure nothing is bugging it but still the problem remains. :(
I have seen a video on youtube where a guys sticks a cello tape on the trackpad and this is supposed to solve this problem. :s
My trackpad is fine right now, but sooner or later it will get inverted for some reasons :s
it's always random..

I believe the video on Youtube is to correct the connector issue. As devnull asked, damp or wet? Even a little can cause issues.
I searched the Rim data base for this issue and nothing is shown.
It could be an electronic failure that cannot be fixed easy.

well I guess it doesn't matter anymore. This has been happening so often I'm used to it now =\
I guess I should change the trackpad because no solution seems to work. Thanks anyways
