Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100
For some reason, my trackball is behaving strangely. At first, NONE of my keys/buttons were working, including the mute/standby button on top of the phone. Now, all buttons are functioning properly EXCEPT for the trackball. When I try to select with it, the phone behaves as though I'm pressing the Q/W button, and sometimes the E button. It's also slow on scrolling.
Had excactly the same problem. Popped the ball off with a tiny screw driver and cleaned the circuit board underneath with some cleaning alchohol. Works perfectly again!
Thanks for the advice Janski

I was having issues with my trackball as well....I ordered a new one, it was $12 and that included the shipping from amazon.com.
There is a little aluminum foil piece underneath your ball, and it's probably bent and broke. Pop the ball out and check it out
