The Blackberry has been having a sticky trackball issue, and when this morning it refused to scroll left or down, I did wonder if I would be taking it apart. (And whether I could get my files off – I don’t want to lose “Scarlet Fever” a second time.)
Fortunately I went online and there is an easy fix. I’ll include the demonstration video below:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6oz_FHz0O8So it goes like this.
- Get a flat surface
- Put a piece of white paper on it
- Lock the Blackberry
- Turn the Blackberry face down
- Rub it fast and lightly back and forth over the paper for a minute or so
- Check if the mouse no works (unlock it first!)
And it also lets me get on with writing Scarlet Fever, a webshort that occurs before In Depression and fills in some backstory.
