Default Making your ColorPearl Track Ball Brighter

Please Login to Remove!

Hey this is for those with the Color Track Ball App. I like the fact that it changes the color on the track ball but I didn't like the dim color it showed so I kind of altered that with a really small piece of electrical tape or black tape. Now my track ball is super bright and just makes my BB Pearl stand out alot more. It only works with RED, GREEN, BLUE, & PINK color.Here's how to do it....


Tools: Small screw driver, Small piece of Black Tape, and Tweezers


Take off Track Ball cover


Take Out Track Ball


This is how the Track Ball gets lid up, by those 4 LED's


Cover the bottom right LED


Little Black piece of tape that you need


Covered LED


Track Ball back in place


Everything Back to its original place

lol, I went without color pearl for a while, and then enabled it again, I found it too bright for my tastes, even at white. It was distracting to my eyes when I was looking at the screen or keyboard so I disabled it again :P. Each to their own I guess.
