How to fix trackball on blackberry bold

 

If you know anything about me it is that I know the solution to every problem, more specifically, I know the solvent to every problem: Isopropyl Alcohol. Yes, it is the universal fix. I sometimes like to think I was the inspiration for the old guy in My Big Fat Greek Wedding who sprayed Windex on everything… as that is exactly what I do with isopropanol. Commonly mis?referred to as ‘Rubbing Alcohol’, this gem does it all:

Yes, your IOGear keyboard with the trackball that doesn’t respond very well, you know the one. You have a nifty Home Theater PC and you want to click to open your media and your trackball responds with the precision of a blunderbuss, …yes, a blunderbuss. That almost perfect keyboard just got more almost perfect now that I found a solution to the trackball response.

After reading enough reviews about how much everyone loves this keyboard but how the trackball will fail after about a year (then seeing IOGear reply saying that they will take care of it)… I knew there must be a better way than sending it back for a replacement. I am happy to announce that there is a better way and the answer is rubbing alcohol (if you didn’t see that coming, you should go now). Here are the steps involved:

SUMMARY: The Logitech M570 Wireless trackball is sexy, smooth and smart. One of the smallest trackballs available, it features a wireless connection, thumb-operated scrollwheel and 5 buttons including Back/Forward. The design might be a bit small for large hands, but overall, this is a very good trackball and one of the most popular and highly rated trackballs available.

The Logitech Wireless Trackball M570 is the successor to the Logitech Trackman Wheel Optical that many people know and love. Despite the good reviews people left about the Trackman Wheel, and the fact that it sold well, Logitech decided to discontinue it and replace it with the wireless-only M570.
