    My trackball started doing this today. It works perfectly fine going up, down and right. It will not let go to the left no matter what. I tried cleaning it the way the thread that showed the video with the guy with the blackberry with no luck. I'm runnning Kaos Froyo v32 @ 768. I've had no problems till today. I tried flashing a 2.1 rom and still had no luck.

    I had the exact same problem last week only mine wouldn't go right. It happened in a split second as I was using it. Mine felt like the ball was getting stuck though so I could tell it was just dirt. I used the compressed air keyboard cleaner and rolled/pressed the ball while spraying. No problems since.

    Tried cleaning it again with a little alcohol and still nothing. I have also discovered that when it is on the charger the whole thing goes haywire and just zooms to the left. Looks like I need to go to a Verizon store and let them look at it.

    Had the same problem, but mine wouldn't scroll up. Verizon ended up replacing the phone.
