Question/Help Trackpad 9700...

I have a Blackberry 9700. Had it with a broken screen and trackpad (the trackpad had a little dent in it and did not work...just clicked... on OS5).
I ordered a screen, replaced it. The trackpad took a little while to be delivered, from a different source, as a spare part.
Now, I changed the trackpad but it does not work (in the mean time I installed OS6...).
Now here's the problem:
-with OS6 the trackpad does not work, nor clicks, so I can't get past the "this handheld device includes software that is prprietary....bla bla bla...I accept)
-with OS5, it just click, does not work when I swipe...

Now my question is, can I find somehow if it's the new trackpad or is it the motherboard? I checked twice the connectors, I even cleaned them with a little brush...
Under the trackpad it's a thingy like a camera...is that part of the trackpad mechanism?

Sorry for the newbie questions... I thank you in advance for the answers!
