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 that are blocking the sensors. If you spit a lot, make sure you have a handy wipe nearby!

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. Use the dry tip of the q-tip to dry off and clean again with another alchohol dipped swab. Let dry for a minute and try it out. If this doesn’t work then try again.

Sidekick 2008 trackball doesn't scroll down or left anymore


More than likely, the trackball on your Sidekick 2008 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!

Cannot scroll up with my Blackberry Curve 8310 trackball


It is a very common problem. You just need a new trackball. Should be about $25. If you want to make it work temporary, then just removed it and clean the trackball and the phone part under it (on the phone itself) with 99% alcohol. It might work for a while again

Trackball fell out of my blackberry curve. I need to scroll down. Is there an alternative method?


You have to have the trackball, there is no other way to scroll. You can probably get one from your local phone store.

Trackball


I just had this happen to me. I blew air (from an air can used to clean keyboards, etc) into the trackball and it started working fine. It seemed there was dust or something stuck inside. Good Luck!

CUrve 8330 having trackball error


Hi
It seems that there might be something blocking it, like dust, press the trackball down and then try to scroll quickly towards the bottom, try it a couple of times, it should fix your problem
