Sony Ericsson mobile phone joystick - somewhat OT

    I have a Sony Ericsson J210i mobile (actually, I have two). Both have
    dodgy navigation joysticks that are unresponsive to pushes most of the
    time. I've googled this and it seems the problem with these joysticks
    used by Sony Ericsson is widespread -- in fact many of the other
    online gripes about them relate to other SE models that use what
    appears to be the same joystick. Apparently, they are not very dust-
    proof and dust gets under the switch contacts.

    I'd be interested in hearing from others who may have similar SE
    joystick problems.

    I have a K750i (I think? about 2 years old) and I need to press fairly
    firmly in the "up" direction for it to respond.

    I did notice that the joystick didn't appear to be sealed - on the top/
    visible section anyway...
