I have never taken one apart but here is the link to a website where someone gives the steps to cleaning your trackball. The pictures are quite clear so you should be able to figure out where the magnets go by looking at them.

My phone fell into a pool then only the trackball


im so sorry for this inconvienience, f you didnt automatically remove the battery after dropping it in the pool then you are almost surely out of luck. leaving the battery out is key, after that take it to an electronics repair store and have them to dry it out and spray electrical parts cleaner on it! this helps it evaporate water and prevent oxidation (which is conductive) after they have finished your phone could work for the next two years!

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!

Sidekick 3 Problem


okay i have a sidekick 3 as well and what you need to do is put the paper clip in the hole again and hold the power button at the same time for approximately 3 seconds. This is a hard reset. Now the bad part is that this will reset all of your data back to factory default. If you need further assistance or this does not work click the ask me button next to my name and we can work on it from there. Thanks.

Flip the LCD screen open, look on the backside of lcd assy, in the top center is where the magnet goes. You will need to take the front lcd cover off to put it back on.
