Curve 8520 will not track after trying all the fix's

It started when it would only track with sim card out,

I then put card under metal clasp to hold connection to motherboard

It worked for two weeks I could click but it wouldn't track

I have fitted pads before so I bought new pad fitted it and it's still the same

I also wiped curve and reinstalled latest software , No luck

If anyone has any further ideas I might try I would be most grateful
