Turn off your phone, and dip a q-tip in rubbing alcohol and rub it around the trackball for a few minutes and after it has dried, turn your phone back on, and it should work

Sidekick 2008 trackball doesn't scroll down or left anymore


More than likely, the trackball on your Sidekick 2008 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. No dis assembly is usually needed!

Check out the Video at the following link to see how the trackball cleaning on the Sidekick 2008 is done

Sidekick Display Issues!


The trackball will blink green when the sidekick is in sleep mode, to let you know that it is still on just saving battery. I personally think it gets pretty annoying after awhile.. Also if it blinks blue while in sleep mode it means you have a new text, email, alert, etc. The only time the trackball doesnt blink green is when you are using it. Hope this helped!

Sidekick 3 problems


Antonio-

You may be able to fix many of those things yourself. The trackball proabaly just needs to be clean. Does the LCD have a white screen when it is on? The Camera, well that may take some work.

For the white screen check out here: http://www.repairmysidekick.org/Fix-Sidekick-White-LCD-Screen

If it is not white, a new lcd can be had for 45 dollars on ebay.
they are easy to replace.

replacement of the Sidekick 3 LCD flip screen.

To clean your track ball, follow these instructions:

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.
