I just installed the yellow trackball from cnn.cn's website, it looks very sleek
by the way. Well I installed it the first time, no problems disasembling the phone, and when i put everything back together, I noticed the track ball felt a little 'grissly'... I.E. it wasn't rolling in a smooth manner. So I took the phone apart again and tried to make sure there wasn't any lint or hair in there. Put the phone back together again, and it moves like the old track ball did now when i roll it.
The problem is that the up
sensitivity is gone and it's very difficult for me to scroll up in the menu... I can gently rub my finger up over the track ball and it won't recognize the up motion at all... I have to firmly apply pressure to the track ball for it to scroll up.... Right, Left, Down all work as they previously did with the OEM track ball...
I made sure to install the new yellow track ball in the same directly that the old one was positioned.... With the top narrow metal strip section pointed upwards (picture below)
Is it possible for me to clean the portion of the phone where the track ball makes contact with the rest of the phone? I don't know if maybe there's some dirt/lint/smudge in there. Anyone have this happen to them or have any ideas how to fix this?
Thanks for your help.
