Default Trackball problems.

Please Login to Remove!

I don't know if its my phone that is acting up or if its my trackball.

But I took out the trackball and I cleaned it with alcohol. But it's still acting up..

Usually, when I click, I would only need to click it softly and one time but now, I have to press the button hard and sometimes, it doesn't work, I'll have to press it couple times.

Is it my phone or trackball? I need to know so that I can buy the parts. Thanks!

It sounds like the trackball, u might actually need to replace it. I never take mine out to clean it, I just use a sani-wipe once a week and it works perfect

maybe when you took your trackball out you might have put it back in wrong u might want to take it out again and this time make sure everything is lined up correctly and that might fix your problem if not theres plenty of sites you can go on to buy a new trackball
