Talking 7290 Scroll Wheel not working properly

Please Login to Remove!

Sometimes I can press it in and other times it just won't work. Does anyone know if it can be replaced? If so, how?

Thanks

You can but I think it involves soldering.... You can try PM to EZRunner I think he did this and might have written it up. In the meantime, here is the disassembly link

Default replace trackwheel

Easy to replace. Just desolder, replace and resolder. 72x0 or 62x0 trackwheel will work.
