Default Clickwheel Not "Clicking"

Please Login to Remove!

My clickwheel will work, it just stopped "clicking" and seems super sensitive now. Is there a way to pull it out so it works like it used to? I miss the tactile response.

You can disassemble your Blackberry and check to see if there is anything inhibiting your "clicker" - you'd be amazed by the dustballs that can form on the inside.

If the Jog Wheel no longer clicks odds are it is a mechanical failure. If you are still within 1year warranty priod do a warranty exchange otherwise you will have to have it repaired BBrepairshop.com and Promobility offer repair services at about 100 to fix. You can always try to fix it yourself as I did but I wouldn't recommend unless you have electronics repair experience. Or buy a used BB from the forums or Ebay
