More than likely, the trackball on your Side LX is really dirty. Overtime, dirt and grime gets in between the ball and the sensors.

It is really easy to clean it, you will need q-tips and IPA alcohol.

Hi,
reasons of that is because its dirty which is it need to
get cleaned..
so what you need do is to clean it with some
alcohol and give a small drop on a q-tip and then
give it hover around on the ball like crazy in different
direction so that way all the different direction will go works
once when you use the trackball again.

BUT OF COURSE, BEFORE YOU DO ALL OF THAT PROCESS,
PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOUR SIDEKICK IS COMPLETELY
TURNED OFF FIRST BEFORE YOU GO AHEAD DO ALL OF THAT PROCESS.

and good luck.

My trackball wont click.


If you could remove the track ball you would see that under it the base is packed in grime and crud. Since it doesn't easily come out, just soak a swab in alcohol, then alternate off rotating the trackball and wiping it down with the swab. Press down as you rotate to try and dislodge dirt and grime. Continue until the ball becomes more responsive.

Texting & Trackball problem!


Victor-

Try a quick clean on your trackball

1: Take a deep breath and blow on the trackball area, rotate and do it again. This may blow any particles that are blocking the sensors. If you spit a lot, make sure you have a handy wipe nearby!
2: This requires a Q-tip and some alcohol. Turn off your sidekick, wet the end of the q-tip, and gently clean the trackball while rotating. Use the dry tip of the q-tip to dry off and clean again with another alchohol dipped swab. Let dry for a minute and try it out. If this doesn’t work then try again.

Your sidekick is trying to autotext for you.
Go into settings choose autotext and spelling, and turn off the auto complete.
