Default Can't click trackball!!

Please Login to Remove!

This is a very annoying problem and I need some help!

I can't click using the ball. I can physically press it down, but the phone doesn't respond. For a while, it double clicked and then one day it just stopped responding and I have to keep using the enter button on the keypad to get anything done!

I've already tried taking apart the phone and cleaning under the trackball but that doesn't seem to work. I'm not sure what else I can do?

Please, if anyone else has had the same problem on this forum, can you please direct me to the thread or post the solution!

Thanks!

I've never had such problem. Perhaps, you need to bring your BB to the nearest service center to make sure what goes wrong.

You could try replacing the trackball dome, which sits underneath the trackball and this MAY fix the problem. It's a fairly cheap and simple thing to fix, with some good YouTube videos showing how to do it, but then again it may not solve your problem. This is probably the first thing I would try. Good luck!
