I just fixed mine trackball which can only move in the vertical direction. By removing the silver cover (there are three small clips that hold it in place), the trackball and its enclosure will fall out. Carefully remove the white plastic cover (there are 2 clips that hold them in place) on the other side of the enclosure. Take out all 4 cylinders (4 magnet at the end) with tweezer and clean thoroughly. The 4 cylinders got clog with lint and dirt which prevent the ball in contact with the cylinder. This will solve your problem.

Pry off the silver ring with a flathead screwdriver and take out the trackball. Clean the little black rubber cylinders on the bottom of the trackball with alcohol. That may be enough to be up and running again. There are also blackberry repair services that can replace the trackball for you or blackberry repair guides that show you how to replace the trackball in more detail.

I had the same problem. The way to fix this is my removing the siler ring and taking out the scroll, in the scroll there are little metal skrews, remove those and there will be alot of dust that the scroll has swept up. Clean that out and it should work, if not I suggest you buy a new one... Good luck

Try removing the silver cover around the scroll ball, and remove the ball. There should be a little white square underneath it. If there is no white square, but a red square, then it could be water damage. I had the same issue with mine.

I had this same problem. It has probably gotten wet, or the wiring is shorting out. You probably need to get a new phone.

Mms not on my new blackberry 8100


First, ensure you have full data service showing on your blackberry 8900.

May need to check with your service provider to put on the proper data feature(s).

Then, on the device it’s self: press the Right Convenience key on the side. Frame the subject, Press the Trackball. Now, press the menu key Scroll down on the list to “send as MMS” You can now select a contact. (Either one in your contact list or a one time only) Press menu and continue. Scroll to subject. Enter that in. Scroll to message box. Enter in a cute little message. Press Menu key (once more!) and then SEND!
You’ll see arrows going back and furth.

For best results, send with +1_area code_number
If this is your first time sending MMS’s, send yourself TWO MMS’s with the same number format.

Go to profiles; scroll down to advanced, and select. Select the profile you wish to edit, hit the menu key, and select edit. Click on sms text, then scroll to ring tone and click. Then scroll up and switch to browse. Select music or audio and select your song.

contact your service provider if you need to unlock the sim to use it with another carrier....it will take a few days to get the code back if they have tot contact the manufacterer....but you need the 16 diget code......after you get that, go to options, advanced options, sim card, type MEPPD. scroll to sim card, type MEP and pres the ALT key and then the 2 key.

if that doesnt work, instead of typing MEP2, try pressing and holding the ATL key and type MEPPE

if this works, a window will pop up asking for the unlock code....
