Re: 8530 trackpad just stoped working.

Hi and welcome to the forums dawnie813! :smileyhappy:

A couple of places for you to visit: Blackberry 101    Tips & Tricks

 

Try pulling the battery out with the device ON. Wait about a minute and put the battery back in. Let the BB completely restart (no remaining data transfer arrows in upper right corner) and see if that doesn't help. Clears out the memory and refreshes the BB; like rebooting your pc.

When you have anomalous behavior in your BB a battery pull often helps to clear it up too.

Let us know how it goes.  Happy to have you here! :smileyvery-happy:

Re: 8530 trackpad just stoped working.

Thanks, IrwinII

 

I tried it but it didn't work.  Went to my local Verizon store and got no help since I do not have "extended warranty" or insurance.  So I'm just going to keep "rebooting" it and see what happens.  Thanks for the info on Blackberry 101 and Tips. 

 

Thank you again for your help....:smileyhappy:

Well that was worth a shot.  Take a look at this KB article   Trackpad not working
