Dear gridlok
Turn the BB off. Press and hold the trackball and roll it in all directions. that should dislodge any dirt and/or lint that is covering the contacts.

Next, dip a Q-tip in alcohol and rub it all around and over the trackball. That will clean it.

Turn the BB back on and it should work as it should.

Don't carry it in your pocket or purse without the case. or) YOu need to clean your trackball.

1: Take a deep breath and blow on the trackball area, rotate and do it again. This may blow any particles block the sensors.
2: This requires a Q-tip and some alcohol. Turn off your sidekick, wet the end of the q-tip, and gently clean the trackball while rotating. Be careful not to get the alcohol on anything but the trackball. Let dry for a minute and try it out. If this doesn’t work then try again.

Q. What trackball wireless mouse is compatible with Logitech K260 keyboard/mouse combo? Is it the Logitech M570 trackball mouse that works with K260 keyboard?


The trackball mouse will come with it's own wireless adapter, So you can use any model you want. Mouse and Keyboard are fairly generic devices and will install themselves.
So you can choose any trackball you like and it will work as expected.

My phone has been switched off for time, and it turned on but for some reason the joy stick isnt working


Hi, if your track ball is not working, it might be because of a buildup of dirt, which obscures the sensor wheels. Cleaning the trackball will fix the problem, and can be done without any special tools or knowledge. After cleaning the trackball, your BlackBerry 8310 should be returned to a good working condition.

  • Lift off the plastic ring around the trackball using the screwdriver. Place the screwdriver under the outer edge of the ring and carefully lift it out. You do not need to use a lot of pressure, as the ring should click out easily.
  • Lift the trackball out of the Blackberry. Raise the white tabs with the screwdriver to lift the ball component out of the trackball. Be sure to keep all pieces safe during this process, as losing one may render the trackball unusable.
  • First, wipe the trackball with a dry cloth to remove the larger particles of dirt. Then, dip the cloth in the cleaning fluid and rub the ball with it. This should lift off any ground-in dirt that has accumulated.
  • Leave to dry for a minute or two, then reverse the removal process. Ensure that the ball lines up with the sensors on the component, marked by the white guides. Click the trackball and the ring back into place. Your trackball should now function properly.
  • Repeat the process once a month, or every time the trackball's performance begins to falter. Trackballs easily pick up dirt and sweat from fingers, which cause them to become clogged. Regular maintenance will help prevent any major damage

I have blackberry 9630 tour trackball is not working upside rest sides its fine please help me out.


The trackball will move down and to the sides, just not up? Try blowing some compressed air into the gap around the trackball from all sides.

Sometimes the trackball gets sticky from food particles or dirt from your fingers. Wipe it clean with a dry lint-free cloth and see if that makes a difference.

If it still won't go up, there may be dust or dirt particles underneath the trackball. Get a thin strip of paper and try to work it in around the trackball to loosen any dirt or debris. Then blow the compressed air again to remove any dirt found.

Trackball not functioning


if ur trackball doesnt work because its dirty theres a perfect way to clean it. my trackball get dirty all the time from greay hands and once that trackball starts to feel buttery and greasy its not going to work (usually a htc snap trackball feels rough and vibratety when you scroll with it). I'm not sure if htc trackballs come out so it sort of scratch the trackball with my fingernail, this scratches the grease of until if feels rough again. if the trackball moves around to much when you clean it, press it in with the other fingernail. if this doesnt work i guess you could get some rubbing alcholon a cotton ear bud (q-tip) and clean it but i havent tried this. if a greast trackball is the not the problem to your malfunctioning then i guess you should get a new trackball or get it repaired in a shop. :D

Sidekick trackball won't work =[


More than likely, the trackball on your Sidekick is really dirty. Overtime, dirt and grime gets in between the ball and the sensors.

It is really easy to clean it, you will need q-tips and IPA alcohol. No dis assembly is usually needed!

Kensington 64215 PS2/ Serial Trackball on USB Mac?


Is the trackball supported by the MAC operating system? If available try the same setup, using the adapter, on a windows based computer to troubleshoot whether it is the trackball or the Mac.
