My question is, if I purchase a trackball replacement should this fix the problem or is the problem more with the PCB board sensor? Rolling action in all directions is fine.
I'm having the same problem.. I have to push down pretty hard now to get my trackball to register my click... This wasn't the case early on....
Now I did replace my trackball with a new one but later put the OEM atomic trackball back in.... It was fine initially but now I have to click hard... I'm just going to live with it and try to consciously remember to push harder when clicking... Tired of taking my phone apart and reassembling it....
