    My buttons all change on my Sidekick only after pressing the "Go Back" button. If I remove the battery and reinstall it, everything is fine until I press the "Go Back" button. Then my trackball stops working, my menu button stops working, and other buttons swap with each other. Until I reinstall my battery and then everything is fine again.

The keys may have gotten dirty. So when you push one, it also activates ones near by.

These tips apply to the trackball but you can also use them for the keyboard.

1: Take a deep breath and blow on the trackball area, rotate and do it again. This may blow any particles block the sensors.
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. Be careful not to get the alcohol on anything but the trackball. Let dry for a minute and try it out. If this doesn’t work then try again.
