Question about RIM BlackBerry Curve 8310 Smartphone

The centre scroll button doesn't 'click'

The centre scroll button 'click' function is glitching. Unless I push hard continuously it doesn't work. This happend with a past 8310 which I exchanged, and I have the same problem with this now. Reseting the phone doesn't help. Is it manufacturing defect once again?

As you use the trackball on your Blackberry, dirt and oils on your fingers get into the trackball assembly.
You might get some 'traction' on your track ball if you lightly dip a cotton swab in some rubbing alcohol. Swab the trackball, then do a quarter turn, continue until you cover the whole trackball in each direction.
If you get no improvement, then its another defective trackball, and you'll have to return it where you got it; most companies warranty phones 90 days from the date it was replaced.

Screen keeps scrolling

usually screens will scroll like that if you have accidentally pushed down on the middle mouse button - you will see a circle with a double ended arrow in it. Moving the mouse in any direction will make the page scroll up or down indefinitely until you deactivate the scroll or move your mouse to the centre of the screen where page stops scrolling but is still active.

Too many pattern attempts!

Hi. Unfortunately you'll have to do a hard reset on the phone. It will delete your phone's user data and apps to the factory default when you first started using it. To do this, put off your phone. Press Volume up button+Scroll Button+Power Button, all at the same time. As soon as the phone starts, release the power button but continue to press the Volume Up+Scroll Button until the green Android avatar appears. Then release the buttons and scroll down (using power button) to the text words "wipe data/factory reset". Once highlighted, press either power button once or scroll button. Another page appears. Scroll down to "Yes--delete all user data". Press scroll button once or power button. Phone will start wiping data. Once the words "reboot system now appear", click on them by pressing either the scroll button or power button once. Phone will then reboot to the factory default pages. Follow instructions from there according to your preferences. Remember to activate both your Samsung Account and Google Account in order to access Play-Store and other internet functions. Good Luck!

My 2006 C280 was due for service B , and I just did the oil change only. How can I reset service B message on the car computer ?

Reset process should be listed in the owners manual.

Should be something like turn car to on(not running) press trip button twice, turn to off and hold trip button till it resets.

Cannot use centerscroll wheel to click and pan

Your scroll mouse may not have a button built into the wheel.

Do try to push down on the wheel, though. Most (quality) modern mice have a button built in below the wheel that just takes a little extra pressure to use.
