    Have you tried to insert your usb plug about halfway and trying your trackball? It is a common issue, and an easy work around to try. As far as I know, you need the trackball to navigate the recovery menu.

    the whole board that has the usb and track ball is broken luckly that individual part is replaceable. don't ask how it charges a might make avideo about how to do it later.

    Wiggling the usb plug and or squeezing the case around the area is the only work around I've found also.

    I've replaced the trackball unit and cleaned the area internally, but it doesn't seem to help me much.

    Now I've stopped receiving text messages; but can't reflash or wipe any caches.

    Spent 20 minutes last night and never could get it to scroll down far enough to wipe.

    Sorry I can't be helpful, I'm in feel sorry for myself and complain mode...
