    hello,

    on my macbook pro 17" i usually use my trackpad and tap it to click, so recently i was using my laptop and tried to push the button ( the button that goes in under the trackpad) and it does not go in!!!! The button refuses to push in!! what is wrong....

    is this a hardware issue? i do have apple care protection?

    I'm guessing it must be jammed. Does it still click? The button isn't really designed to go all the way down to the track pad.

    Most likely something got stuck in there. You could get some compressed air and see if that blows anything out maybe?

    click

    Well are you supposed to hear a click or at least be able to push it down..?

    I have a 17" MBP and the button beneath the trackpad definitely moves when you press it down. Not all the way down to the level of the trackpad, and no audible click, but it's not as if there's zero sound and zero movement--there is definitely tactile response.

    What you describe certainly doesn't sound right.
