  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!

My rollerball won't click.


I'm having the same problem with this. One of my friends and a Att worker have suggested that replacing the Rollerball with a new one which can be bought off Ebay for 5 or 6 bucks can fix the problem. If that does't work then check to see if water damage has taken place, if any moisture has gotten to the phone it may be that. Other then replacing the rollerball i have no other solution.

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.
