Unhappy Trackball Not Working Properly

Please Login to Remove!

Hey everyone,

My trackball is working very strange. It is not navigating in certain directions. Just yesterday it would not navigate downwards and now today it will not navigate to the left. It feels like it is slipping and not making contact with whatever is inside the phone that causes it to turn. Also, it does not click how it is supposed to when I go in the direction I am navigating in. In this instance to the left. Any solutions? Maybe there is something that I might have to take apart and clean?

Thank you

See the following posts for cleaning the trackball.

Remember, please try searching first!

Need a screenshot? ... Like JavaLoader?
Try using BBscreen .....Use JL_Cmder!
or BBScreenShooter!
