MacBook Trackpad button

Recommended Posts

hi everyone,

 

the trackpad button on my first gen macbook has gotten so bad to the point there is no spring action left at all on it and if you even gently rest

your wrist in the area of the button it thinks it is being pushed. My applcare has expired and I was wondering if there was anything that I could

do to fix this issue?

 

Thanks!

here's a inventive solution: http://ibloggedthis....button-problem/

I had a problem from new with our C2D 'Blackbook' - there was no tactile 'click' to the left hand side of the pad - and I ended up sorting it by placing a small folded piece of paper roughly where the underside of the left hand side of the clickpad's button is located. Worked a charm, and saved me the hassle of a warranty claim. Still works today, 3.5 years on...

That is brilliant!
