Why I love Google and YouTube!!!

For about 5 months now my Blackberry 8830 has been broken because:

1.) It wont scroll down.
2.) It wont "click to enter".


If you follow my blog or know me personally, you'll know Im used to qwerty/smart phones. It's a good thing I had another blackberry to use when this was broken but this was my first blackberry so it meant a lot to me. I was so desperate that I was willing to pay a lot to have it fixed but thank God I found a way to fix it. It all started when I found someone selling BB trackballs on eBay and since I didn't know any repair centers here, I did what any sane-minded person would do. I googled it. 

I suddenly found this Youtube link that shows you how to clean and/or replace your BB trackball. It was the answer to my prayers. I followed every step with caution et voila in less than 5 minutes my BB was working perfectly.

So heres the video on how to fix the trackball when it wont scroll up/down/left/right. It also teaches you on how to replace the whole trackball.


 But another problem was facing me because even before the scroll down function wasn't working, the 'enter' function when you click the ball wasn't working either. So again I turned to Google for answers and it directed me to Youtube once more. I found this really awesome video that lets you fix the enter-click function with a regular ball point pen.

Here's the video on how to fix the trackball when it won't 'enter' when you click the ball.




This videos work on the following Blackberry models:

Blackberry Pearl 8100 8110 8120 8130 
Blackberry Curve 8300 8310 8320 8330
Blackberry 8800 8820 8830



Again, who loves Youtube? I do! I do! Who loves Google? I do! I do! Hope you guys enjoyed the tutorials and if you're having problems or don't really understand how it goes, you can e-mail me or e-mail the video uploaders on Youtube for help.


Cheers.
