    Just these little guys:

    ..or some such like those, with no additives such as aloe or whatever.. plain alcohol because it evaporates cleanly and quickly. Work it over.

    I had this problem, right before my trackball and microphone completely went out. Not saying yours will, but just letting you know that your not alone :)

    I've had this problem too and have posted about it in several places now. I'm also on 2.1v.2 and didn't have the problem until updating. My trackball randomly scrolls to the left (sometimes very quickly and sometimes very slowly). I've tried every fix that has been suggested - cleaning with alcohol etc.

    I was reading yesterday about how screen protectors aren't necessary for the Eris, and mine was dirty so I took it off. Magically my trackball seems to be working properly again, even when plugged in which is when it seems the worst. Maybe it's coincidence, but if you've got a screen cover on your phone, try taking it off to see if the problem is fixed.

    Uninstalled LookOut and now all is good. ya mine was going left too . all damn day. not sure how a dirty screen protector would cause that as this phone wont work with a stylus.

    I'm having the same problem. It's at it's worst when plugged into via usb.

    Cleaned and everything.
