    Maybe it's OK, green means go.

    It's broken: (Said after 30+ years experience in the IT industry).

    What, does it matter, HW or SW, which bit, why, can it be fixed, is it a warranty job - dunno - but could you kindly post your findings to assist us other guys when it happens to us...

    Cheers!

    I just thought of something...

    Maybe it's working correctly and is just green?

    Mine is a light blue and I've heard of some people having a pinkish color.

    Maybe they shipped them out with some locked on different colors :D

    Are you running a custom rom? Newer roms like cyanogen include color trackball notifications.

    I love the "it's back, its gone, its gone, back again, gone now, back" posts!!

    Can we nominate this for thread of the year?

    Now that I think of it... it does sound like it was a notification and it would "normally" blink on and off for a little while...

    It hasn't come back.. I normally have the light blue track ball but I've never seen the green before... the phone was working fine during the ordeal.. the reason for my post as to try to find out if anyone else experience the same thing before...

    You have to root to get the other colours, although I hear an incoming call when using a Bluetooth headset causes a blue light.

    Mine used to idle light blue after having the rooted notification mod applied. It would flash green to notify me then dim to light blue. This ONLY happened because I was running the notification program for my rooted phone.
    Once I either removed or rebooted it would dissapear (until there was a new notification!)
    Awesome thread though, I felt like I was right there watching this guy freak out at his green ball!

    You probably just have issues with your colours on the trackball as in that part is broken, maybe take it to the shop or something.
