I found that removing the track ball and cleaning the contact and track ball with a cotton swab moistened with a small amount of isopropyl alcohol, it worked a 100 percent better when I returned the ball to the handset. DO NOT SATURATE THE BALL OR THE HANDSET WITH THE ALCOHOL!! ONLY USE A VERY SMALL AMOUNT!!!!

My blackberry curve trackball is not working property. I can move up and down but it does not work when I press to make choice.


Thank you for using FixYa

This is a known blackberry issue.

There are 2 options available: with a pin you can remove the trackball and clean the surrounding area of the track ball (NOT RECOMMENDED)

Being that it is a known issue, you can take the telephone to your phone provider and they should be able to replace the track ball.

If that does not solve the problem, you will need to have your telephone replaced

Track ball on my blackberry curve is sticking


Debris gets stuck under there. Get a can of "forced air" blow it on there while rolling the ball. If that doesnt get it out.. There are youtube videos on how to take the trackball out and clean it, but be careful. The 1st time I did that, I broke a lil prong off the housing trying to get it off.. and some of the parts are very tiny, and try to roll away. So be cautious if you go that route.

Track ball requires multiple press to get it to do anything


Hi, to change the trackball or trackpad sensitivity of the BlackBerry smartphone, complete the following steps:
1) On the Home screen, go to Options > Screen/Keyboard.
2) In the Trackball or Trackpad section, click Horizontal Sensitivity or Vertical Sensitivity to change the sensitivity level.
3) Press the Menu key and select Save. The new sensitivity levels are saved.
A higher sensitivity number indicates a higher sensitivity level for the trackball or trackpad.
The trackball user interface found on certain BlackBerry smartphones is similar to the trackball used in a mouse in conjunction with a desktop computer.
In the event debris comes in contact with the trackball and affects the usability of the BlackBerry smartphone, rapidly roll the trackball up, down, left, or right to potentially correct the problem.
If rapidly rolling the trackball does not correct the problem, please contact your wireless service provider for support options.
Try to re-install the BlackBerry Device Software using the application loader tool, before you re-install the software please back up the BlackBerry smartphone data.I hope this information will be helpful to you

Blackberry Curve Rolly Ball Trouble


First how bad troubleshooting by manufacturer-sellers is! Not a word on this. Second, third and fourth, always use with case, no pockets, no bottom of bags; use with clean hands; and, clean very carefully with cotton swab mildly moistened with nail polish remover (from your favorite woman, mine gave me the idea), and then very carefully clean ball with it and wipe with dry swab.

Trackball reinsert blackberry curve 8310


Usually the clips of the chrome ring break and don't snap back into the frontplate. There are :<a href=http://www.portatronics.com/guide/Smartphones-Repair-Guide/>Blackberry Curve Repair Guides</a>online that show you how to disassemble the Curve, if need be.
