Default Roller ball won't select

Please Login to Remove!

I can use the rollerball to move the cursor around on my 8130, but when I depress it, nothing happens. I took it apart and cleaned it really well but it didn't help. It just started happening, no problems at all before now. What to do?

Got it working! When I cleaned it before I just swabbed it out with a clean Q-tip. It really wasn't that dirty to begin with. The second time I used rubbing alcohol. Didn't seem to remove anything but it's now working so that's all that matters.

Does anybody know where I can get a new rollerball asssembly just as a backup?

Default Roller Ball Problem

The Roller Ball On My Curve Stopped Scrolling. At&t Said Tough Luck, 5 Days Out Of Warranty.
They Were No Help, Said You Could Not Do Anything About That Problem. After Resigning Myself To The Fact That I Was Going To Have To Buy A New Phone, And Maybe Switch Carriers I Decided To Go For Broke. I Removed My Battery And Used A Can Of Spray Electrical Contact Spray. I Saturated The Roller Ball While Moving It Continuously. I Allowed A Few Minutes For The Cleaner To Evaporate, Reinstalled The Battery. The Roller Ball Now Works Perfectly!!!!! Try It. And Let Me Know.
