    Had a minor pixel problem on my W208CLK and had tried all the fixes involving rubber bands, wedges, mouse mats and the like and nothing seemed to be able to get the four (I said it was minor) pixels in my gear selector window to reappear.

    As a last resort I eventually encouraged the original pink damper back into position by pulling it out from its compressed position behind the circuit board. I did this by pulling them up at each end using a pair of fine tweezers to push it back towards the ribbon and then tried to arrange it to give even pressure across the ribbon cable and hey presto we're back and working.

    I'll post back if they drop out again but thought it worth posting what I thought was a fairly simple solution before people start hacking up their mouse mats...
