The Trackball on my Blackberry 8830 is not moving up? How do I fix it?

If you are are confident enough to have ago you can take it apart you will need a stardriver and a bit of patience when you take the cover off there will be connecting strips from the keypad back(3 of them), 2 at the top and 1 at the lower side right, genly pop them off.
This will give access to the rear of the keypad where you can blow dust from the roller ball mechanism, gently wipe the sensor on the motherboard and replace reverse order, grease and debrit gather in the mechanism from pockets etc then the use of the ball pushes it inside, hope this helps.

My blackberry scrollball is not working. It canonly go left to right and vice verssa but can not move up or down

Have you tried cleaning it? The best way I clean mine is using a q-tip, dabbing it in rubbing alcohol, be sure to squeeze the excess out of the q-tip, and roll the wet q-tip all around the ball. Make sure you roll the ball so that all of it gets the alcohol on it. You can use the other side of the q-tip (dry side) to dry the ball.

Ball on blackberry wont navigate up or down

Hi. BlackBerry smartphone trackball fails to roll in a particular direction because, debris is lodged in the trackball.
The trackball user interface found on certain BlackBerry smartphones is similar to the trackball used in a mouse in a desktop computer.
Using for certain period debris comes in contact with the trackball and affects the usability of the BlackBerry smartphone, rapidly roll the trackball up, down, left, or right to potentially correct the problem.
If rapidly rolling the trackball does not correct the problem, please contact your wireless service provider for support options.
I hope this information will be helpfull.

Ball wont roll up, will roll every other direction

the ball is likely dirty. you can actually remove this if you are extremely careful and try to clean the ball with alcohol and a q-tip.

Blackberry rolling ball issues

Is the ball registering left right up and down and just not selecting? Sometimes the ball gets dirty. You can clean them most of the time. If its the actual select button, it sounds like it needs replacing. This repair runs 65.00 plus shipping. The actual button is a solder-on button so it requires more attention. Try for your blackberry repair needs!

The address icon does not initiate on the home screen. However, I can access a contact database in the search mode.When the track ball is depress nothing happens over the contact icon.

Try going into your applications screen, Which can also be the home screen if you have your theme set for it. Try clicking on your blackberry button, the one to the left of your trackball, which will bring up a small menu, scroll to show all and click your track ball. Then you need to find the address book icon and click your blackberry button. If hide is checked in the menu uncheck it by clicking your track ball again. This should unhide it and make it available on your screen again.

Lost the address icon on my blackberry phone

This can only be resolved by having a service book sent to you. you will need to contact your service provider's Adavanced Tech dept. Let them know you've lost your address book icon and need the service book sent to your phone. they will be able to access the blackberry site and have the service book sent to your device.
