  1. Pull the battery
  2. Place the phone in a bag of instant rice (or industrial desiccant if you happen to have some)
  3. Vacuum seal if possible
  4. Give it a week.
After a week of that it will have the best chance of working.

Rollerball not working


On the BB 8800.......you need to have the board service....this will solve the problem on your 8800 Blackberry.

the roll ball......on the pearl....you need to have the pad on the board replaced so take it to a professional mobile technician and have that done.

I have dropped my blackberry a few times and the rollerball had fallen out, now it doesn't want to scroll to the left and to the right it's hard as well


it sounds like your trackball is dirty the wheels on the inside of the blackberry are gunked up!

at some cases, the problem can be fixed by putting a thin layer of alcohol on your clean fingertip and rolling it in different motions on your blackberry, or if not you can go on ebay and buy a new track ball for no more than 11 dollars!

I have a trackball that is sticking on a blackberry bold 9000 how do you go about changing one out and is it the same size trackball as a curve


1. It is the same trackball as the curve.

2. Unlike the curve, where you can just pop the silver ring out from the front and the entire trackball comes out, on the Bold, you have to take the unit apart.

3. To take the bold apart follow these instructions:

4. Make sure that the contact underneath the trackball is not dirty. Take a QTip and some rubbing alcohol and clean the contact on the mainboard which makes contact with the trackball.

5. You can then replace the trackball from the curve into the bold, although, if you dont have a spare trackball, you can also clean the trackball with rubbing alcohol. To do this, I would put a solution of 50% rubbing alcohol and 50% distilled water (regular water is ok, but I prefer distilled). Shake it around (or better yet, use a sonic jewelry cleaner)and make sure to roll the ball around to loosen any dirt in the unit. Underneath the rollerball there is a little tab (that is called the spoon). Do not bend the spoon, rather make sure that the area between the spoon and the ball is cleaned out.

6. let everything dry and reassemble.

If you dont have a spare rollerball and want to buy one, There are many for sale on Ebay at around $5.

Blackberry Curve rollerball scrolls but will not select when push


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.
