Trackpad Button no longer working

So I went to use my computer and it appears the trackpad button is stuck in mid-action, so I can not use the keys to access anything :( I read that it may be a piece of debris as the button feels slightly raised in the center, but either end appears to move freely.

I tried compressed air, but that didn't work. Looks like the fix maybe a new casing or a new computer?

Plan to fire wire back up this week then off to genius bar.

Any thoughts, suggestions.

Follow the guide to remove the top case

inspect from underneath (back or inside) for foreign objects or loose ribbon cables. If none of those are found you can always replace the top case.

If this answer was acceptable please return and mark it.

Good Luck,

Maybe there's something stuck under the trackpad button. You may try to slide a double folded paper sheet under the clic pad to remove the intruder.
