Do you have to do this if you want to color the LED?

genius!!! i had dust balls the size of the trackball itself in there. i've had to adjust the sensitivity to accommodate for the easiness in which the trackball rolls now. lol

I am trying not to panic...but
My trackball stopped moving upwards...as usual I came here did my search and found this excellent tutorial. Maybe I should've wait since I was very tired and it was 1 AM but, how can I sleep when my curve is not in perfect shape! So I followed the tutorial with the fantastic gigantic pics and found so much lint it was embarrassing. I am surprised it did not stopped working earlier (yes, is always in my shirt pocket.)

Now is three AM and I have not been able to mount it back. It just wont reassemble (the white plastic piece over the little rolls with magnets.) I decided I just need to sleep and in the morning, I will see the "light" and get it done.

ouch, okey - just remember that the last platic piece that you mention can only be mounted one way.
you can see my pictures that there is 2 dots pointing away from the trackball(one on each side of this plastic piece). if this is faceing towards the trackball - it is the wrong way, and it will not fit.

if you still are having problems, i can post som extra pictures later to day.

I swear I felt like a noobie again and I swore to gods and godess that I would never open my blackberry again if I get the darn thing working. Which I swore before re my PC and then broke the promise

Your last pic was a lifesaver. My BB curve is working great, although the trackball feels a bit tight, it is working in all directions again. I could not work on it before because odd enough I had to work today (a rarity!) but my mind was on the BB all day and I finally got it right! So, thanks for a great tutorial and 1,000,000 thanks for the support/rescue!

I love BBForums!

Question reinstalling the retaining ring

The instructions worked fine except I can't seem to reinstall the silver plastic/metal retaining ring that holds the trackball in place. There are three clips and I'm not sure what the orientation is to get it to seat properly. I've tried all ways and it never seems to seat properly.

Ablefton:

This pic from this excellent tutorial was the one that helped me the most when I had a similar problem:

http://img262.imageshack.us/img262/5...4620zl3.th.jpg


look at the pins position (it has to be exact!) and look at the white plastic position, it has two endings with miniature round spots on top that must also be specific. It also help if you kind of push the brackets of the aluminum ring in a little so they fall in position when you slide the white plastic piece down unto it.

In addition, please notice, that the way the picture is taken and the way you may be assembling it is different, to me it was better to have the plastic piece on top and in the picture is on the bottom (ready to go back into its phone place.) I was not taking that into consideration when assembling the little pins...I hope this helps!

To answer my own question, it does work for the 8330. Installs perfectly for anyone whom might need a new trackball.

Perfect walk through. And this is the exact reason I tell all the new employees about this site. I never though I was going to need this, but I ended up doing it for a time killer and I can notice a huge difference
