Default 8830 Cleaned trackball now menu button snafu

Please Login to Remove!

I cleaned my trackball following the guidance of a couple of youtube videos. Problem solved, trackball goes in all directions.

Now the menu button does not work. I did blow out the trackball space using canned air and wiped clean with a q-tip.

Thoughts/suggestions/dianosis?

Did you try a battery pull?

What other troubleshooting steps have you taken?
