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.

Rollerball downward movement does NOT register. Upward OK. Click OK.But cannot scroll downwards


Same problem I had. Remove the ring around the track ball assembly. and remove the track ball assembly frrom the phone. Clean the ball well with a swap and alcohol. Make sure you put the assembly back in the same way it came out. Put the ring back on and you should be good to go.

I can't scroll down with the rollerball


The balls on the blackberry's get clogged up with finger oil, skin, and all sorts of grime I think. But I fixed mine by shutting the phone down and then rubbing hard against the roll ball in each direction and pushing each time until the clicker under the roll ball clicked. You could also try alcohol.

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.

Dropped my blackberry curve in literally a fraction of an inch of water for only a second. everything works except rollerball will not select when pushed in...still scrolls in all directions with no other...


  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.
