    Hey what's up guys,

    My 750's vibrator stopped working. The section where the charger plug in goes fell out completely, I glued it back on and suddenly the vibrator stopped working. Now, I'm not sure if this is due to a hardware problem, it could be some problem in the software... Any suggestions? I really don't want to send it in, I don't have a spare phone...

    Don't know where the vibe unit is located in the device, but if you overglued, it's possible you killed it.

    Most vibe units are actually just tiny motors with an off-balance load on the shaft. A little glue in the wrong place and the motor could stop turning.

    Again, this is just a guess. If you've got parts falling out, there could be other issues, especially if all this happened after a hard drop.

    So you think I have no choice but to send it in? You know where I can find the motor's exact location?

    No clue. Did a quick look around the web with no luck. I found a few guides to take apart treos to replace the screens, but nothing that would indicate where the vibe unit is actually located.

    May not be a glue issue either. It could even be a broken solder joint.

    Of course, I'm focusing on hardware issues because you mentioned glueing parts back in. Did you have any major software changes around that time that may have caused an issue? I'm assuming that you've looked in your settings and verified that it SHOULD be vibrating.
