I'm very sorry but you are going to have to provide more information before anyone can assist here.
Does the trackpad register anything? (clicks, movement, anything at all)
You say you had 'It' replaced, do you mean the device itself or the trackpad? If the trackpad, where was this done?
Prior to it not working, what were you doing? Was the device dropped or hit in any way?
Check on the back under the battery, is there a little square that is pink or red?

I updated my Blackberry OS to version 6. Ever since my trackpad sensor has become totally unreliable. It is currently "frozen" for any movement to any portion of the screen. It does respond if I depress the trackpad, depending on whatever is the selected area of the screen. I could "unfeeze" it by either hooking it up to a charge or have it sync to my Bluetooth on my car. After a while I would have to resort to power off/power on the get it to work. Now, even that fails me.
It is OS 6 bundle 2949. BTW, this all started after I updated the OS on the phone using the Desktop Manager, which itself was updated. It is at version 220.127.116.11. No idea what the previous versions of phone OS or Desktop Manager were. Also, when I connect to the Destop Manager I keep getting messages
"Organizer failed to start."
UPDATE: Using a KB article from another post I powered on the 9700 into "Safe" mode. The trackpad is now functional. I still get the Organizer failed to start message. It does perfrom fullbackups without any visible error messages.

Jaime, if the issue persists, I would recommend trying a Clean Reload of your OS using the DM and see if that gets it.

i had the sensor pad replaced, but it did not solve the problem, so i put the old one back. i did not drop it. it has not seen moisture. i turned it on one day and it did not work. the button clicked on whatever the application was, but it would not move to other applications. i uploaded all new software updates and now i cannot get past thelicensing "accept" screen (cannot scroll down or click or anything). i cannot use the bb for a telephone with this screen in the way. i went to service centers and cell phone distributors in flores, guatemala and belize city, belize. They replaced the sensor pad with no results.

I used KB17877 which describes how to boot the smartphone into Safe Mode.
I also found KB29640, which gives tips on debugging trackpad issues. I stumbled across that one while searching for the Safe Mode article.
Lots of luck.
I am also patiently waiting for a reply which describes what is functioning differently in Safe Mode.

I took the phone to a AT&T Service Center and they did a complere reflash/reload of the OS. They did backup of my data ahead of this and then reloaded it afterwards so nothing was lost except my one downloaded app, which I had to do again and reconfigure.
It took a few days but it again went funky. Currently operatng in Safe Mode as my only "solution".

Oh dear, we be broke again.
Today over lunch, the trackpad again froze up. Regular power off/power on did not correct the situation, even in "Safe Mode".
Pulled out the battery, waited and then replaced it. Tried to go back to Safe Mode. The pop up panel asked for the OK to stay in Safe mode. But, depressing the trackpad button had no effect. The panel was stuck open on the screen. Muliple attempts got me nowhere. Now, wonders of wonders, I redid the hard power off and did NOT use the ESCAPE on reboot to get into Safe Mode. And, behold, the trackpad was now functioning normally. Let's see how long that is the case.
All of this wackiness is driving me crazy.
