To clean, dip a Q-tip in some alcohol and rub the ball with it.
By any chance, do you carry the BB in your pocket? That is the worse place to put it as it can pick up lint and dirt very easily.
I've already tried all of this. It's not dust. I even took off the silver ring, pulled out the trackball assembly, and blasted it with compressed air. No help.
The trackball moves left/right/up/down perfectly. The problem is pressing the trackball to make a selection. I think the trackball is just broken.
I'm going to try pulling the trackball from my pearl this evening and seeing if that works in the curve.
Doesn't RIM sell replacement trackballs? Am I the only one that has had this problem?
