Ive Seen Loads Of Posts Asking For A Fix To The 8520-30 Trackpad Problem Well Here Is The One I Used To Fix Mine, Remove The Battery&Sim And Then Remove The Silver Plat Which Covers The Back Of The Trackpad, If You look To The Left Of The Back Of The Phone You Should See A Few Pins Connecting The Trackpad To The Phone, Just Press These In Ever So Slightly And There Is The Method I Used To Solve My Problem
I used this fix, in fact have went so far as to remove the pad and clean it completely, as there are a number of videos on that repair. Throw-back from trackball cleaning I suppose. After securing the connection again I would be good for 12 to 24 hours and it would start to freeze again.
After a great deal of research on this and have likely tried every suggested solution without lasting success.
Three days ago I changed my screen/keypad setting for the trackpad from silent to audible. I have not had a single freeze since.
Please post if this works for someone else. I am hoping this is not just a fluke.
How did you do that? and specially, how do I do it if my trackpad isn't working?
(Absolute newbie here, my sis bought un unlocked 8520 for me on ebay and my other sis brought it back to my country for me a week ago: if i don't find a fix i'm screwed)
