    The video shows you everything you need to know. However easy the video tries to make the procedd look, it still appears to be a daunting task.

    Your mileage may vary but when mine stopped working (would not scroll down) I blasted around it with an air hose (not compressed air from a can) and it now works fine. Figure it had lint/dirt in it. Is a bit of a caveman way to fix it but....

    unless it was faulty i wouldnt want to change it to be honest. a nice bright circle in the middle is stylish. Wouldnt want it to be black. But thats just me..

    I'm thinking about switching mine up soon too. My friend looked at my bold today and thought that I already had put the black trackball in mines sooo dirty.

    Mine stopped scrolling down as well yesterday, I took rubbing alcohol and put it on an old rag (just a bit) and scrolled the wheel around for about 4-5 min. all the while refreshing the dab off rubbing alcohol, Now it works perfect....

    ok so please help me out? i watched the video, and do I seriously have to "disassemble the whole thing" just to replace my trackball? can't I just pop it out like the pearl or curve?

    Yes you need to take the board out of the bezel to get at the trackball in order to change it.

    Related question...do you have to remove the LCD first before removing the trackball? or can you just skip the LCD part and go for the trackball?

    You don't need to remove the LCD for either the trackball or the bezel replacement.

    Doesn't removing the trackball void the warranty on the device?

    yea pretty much, unless you can save the little white screw cover

    Yeah, big time voided warranty. Yet, it looks wonderful, so there's that.

    Does anyone know any US sellers that ship black bold trackballs from US not HK ? I ordered black bezel from cnn.cn before but my postman came when I was not home so I had to go to post office to get it, in other words it was a pain in the ***, I don't mind paying just a little extra and have it delivered to me by USPS 1st class with 3 to 4 days.

    There's a white tape on top of the middle right torx screw. I just stabbed right through to un screw it.
