A lot of trackball controlls made by Microsoft and Logitech use a optical system. Once the control on the screen doesn't move anymore, you simply remove the ball and clean the optics out of it.

If there is a way that you can remove the ball out of the control, all you have to do is clean the rollers underneath the wheel. After some time they do build up just like a friction mouse does. All it takes is some Qtips and a water alchohol solution.

I would hope for a kid trackball they made that a feature.

The roller ball doesnt work


The trackball doesn't work at all? Did it suddenly stop working or has it gone from good to bad over time? Going from working well to not going up or down or back and forth to not working at all could be fixed by following the instructions below. Ceasing to work suddenly could mean a defective device. You'll want to call your system provider for assistance. Hopefully the unit is still under warranty.

Most trackball movement problems can be rectified by cleaning the trackball. Try the following steps to see if it helps tp resolve the issue you are having;

1) Turn the unit off, open the back cover and pull the battery out,
2) Take a paper towel, dampen it with water...nothing else, making sure that the towel is only damp and not soaking wet,
3) Rub the damp paper towel on the trackball, over and over, making sure to rub up, down, side-to-side and every which way. This should clean the trackball and remove whatever is causing it to not move smoothly.
4) Wait a minute or two and replace the battery and cover. Once the unit has rebooted, try moving the trackball again. It should be better.

Cheers!

My trackball on bb 9000 won't move down


good luck.
if you can get the part -- its a trackball assembly btw not just the ball itself
you press down on the silver ring around the ball and turn, the cover will fall out. use a small probe and lift the assembly out.
many times there's fuzz in there -- check it out before you buy a new assembly

Trackball gets stuck on BB 8100 Pearl


You can actually pop the trackball out and clean it and the sensors. remove (gently) the silver ring around the ball. if you break it you can buy new ones cheap.. it just snaps in to place. then the ball will fall out and you can take a q-tip and rubbing alcohol and clean it.

Logitech Marble Mouse became erratic then stopped


Nope have to throw it away and buy another. I've had this same problem every 3-4 months: works fine then it disappears from device manager then it works again at random. I end up replacing it after my curser stops moving for minutes at a time. After a few months the replacement does the same thing. My 5th replacement will be Kensington, Logitech apparently sucks

Trackball not moving right


This is right, the problem is in the trackball. If you can get hold of alcohol like the one used years ago to clean the heads of tape decks etc, you may be able to put some in the trackball and rotate the ball around in all directions with the hope that it may clean it.

The track ball on my blackberry 8310 stopped working.


No, but fortunately the trackball is not hard or expensive to replace. If you are technically savvy you can do this yourself. Just purchase a trackball on the internet. The trackball easily comes off if you put a small flat screw driver under the outer side of the chrome ring and pull if off. Let me know if you needed more help. Good luck
