BB Curve 8520 Trackpad problems

i've had my 8520 bb for almost a year now and just a week ago i noticed that it stopped navigating up/down/across. Then today it just stopped working. It hasn't worked for 6 hours now and its really frustrating. Apparently i'm not the only one with this problem and i think that something should be done about this by the manufacture to replace or fix the problem!!!

Ok so far you have replaced the track pad right ? And it still doe sent work? Ok so when you were putting the new trackpad in did you check if any of the connectors were damaged, check the trackpad and the phone itself. Hope it helps

Re: BB Curve 8520 Trackpad problems

what on earth are you supposed to do when it gets wet ???? i have an 8520 and the trackpad got wet i have repalaced it my self, several times and had it sent off 4 times with excessive repair costs(£258) to be exact it probably would be cheaper to buy a new make phone as blackberry's have world wide problems but as this is my 1st BB it mite just be the phone playing tricks on me.

Re: BB Curve 8520 Trackpad problems

When it gets wet, the objective is to pull out the battery as soon as possible to stop it short circuiting then you open the phone and place it in a bowl of rice and what works better is silica gel. What it does it soaks up all of the water wait a day or two and pop the battery back in and it should work.

Re: BB Curve 8520 Trackpad problems

Well I honestly don't know what else you can do tbf just try the rice thing and see if it works. From the description you have given me it seems your phone has short circuited.
