Question Trackball Mania!

Please Login to Remove!

so, i have had my blackberry for just over a year and the trackball has gone out. The first time this happened i took it apart and cleaned the rollers and the assembly and it fixed the issue, however now the trackball will not work and the only way that all the directions will work is if i reverse the rollers on the assembly. (which also makes it very interesting to get around the menus ) but now the clicker just went out. I pulled the trackball ass. out and tried using other objects to click it but it obviously could be a main board issue. If you know of anywhere i could find the part to fix this or if there is another fix i am unaware of i would appreciate the help :P

im sure a new board may be a bit too much trouble to replace, and may not be worth purchasing.

thanks guys
