Good evening!
My Blackberry does the exact same thing. The trackball will scroll around, and it will select what I wish for it to select but it won't actually "click" or move into the phone.
The phone itself has a built in mechanism underneath, near the trackball and is very fragile and if it is broken, the pushing in or "click" will not occur anymore.
Unfortunately this mechanism is not replaceable without taking apart the phone itself. You can contact your service provider for a replacement, but I, and many others, are just living with the problem.
Hope this helps you out!

The ball wont roll on my blackberry. Help!


The trackball is easily removed for cleaning by just pulling the trim ring around the trackball off with your fingernail. Remove the trackball and clean with alcohol. Reverse the process to clean.

My trackball on bb 9000 won't move down


good luck.
if you can get the part -- its a trackball assembly btw not just the ball itself
you press down on the silver ring around the ball and turn, the cover will fall out. use a small probe and lift the assembly out.
many times there's fuzz in there -- check it out before you buy a new assembly

Trackball gets stuck on BB 8100 Pearl


You can actually pop the trackball out and clean it and the sensors. remove (gently) the silver ring around the ball. if you break it you can buy new ones cheap.. it just snaps in to place. then the ball will fall out and you can take a q-tip and rubbing alcohol and clean it.

The tracking ball rotates but it does not move over the icons on the left side. Is there anything I can do to fix this?


Depending on how comfortable you are with removing the trackball it's not hard to fix... you may have some dirt or grit interfering with the trackball and/or sensors. Take a small screwdriver or blade and gently pop the silver ring around the trackball off. This will free the actual trackball housing. Use an old toothbrush to clean everything. I also soaked the trackball in a little rubbing alcohol. Just make sure it is completely dry before reassembling. If that doesn't work you can purchase replacement trackballs from places like crackberry.com.

The ball won't scroll down


Pop the ring around the track ball out with a small blade or your finger nail. Three double prongs hold it in place (bottom and both sides, none on top). Turn device over and gently tap the back. Track ball will release once ring is removed. At this point you can view the track ball and see exactely what is causing the block. Clean if needed with q-tip or remove lint/debris/etc... Just did this with my 8830. Working perfectly now. - {would not scroll down at all prior to}

Pearl roller ball


It might be a case where the track ball has some dirt or debris underneath it. First, turn the device off. Next, press down firmly on the track ball while at the same time rolling it in every direction. Hopefully that will knock loose any debris. Another tip to try is to wet your thumb with a little water and do the same thing.

If those two options don't work, you may try taking out the track ball and blowing out the slot with some compressed air. Below is a link that shows how to remove and clean the track ball:

Sidekick 3 problems


Antonio-

You may be able to fix many of those things yourself. The trackball proabaly just needs to be clean. Does the LCD have a white screen when it is on? The Camera, well that may take some work.

For the white screen check out here: http://www.repairmysidekick.org/Fix-Sidekick-White-LCD-Screen

If it is not white, a new lcd can be had for 45 dollars on ebay.
they are easy to replace.

replacement of the Sidekick 3 LCD flip screen.

To clean your track ball, follow these instructions:

1: Take a deep breath and blow on the trackball area, rotate and do it again. This may blow any particles block the sensors.
2: This requires a Q-tip and some alcohol. Turn off your sidekick, wet the end of the q-tip, and gently clean the trackball while rotating. Be careful not to get the alcohol on anything but the trackball. Let dry for a minute and try it out. If this doesn’t work then try again.

When i am pressing my track ball its not responding


Get a sheet of paper or a pad of paper, put your cell upside down so the rollerball is touching the paper... Rub the phone on the paper quite vigerously. This has been a problem for me with many pearls - there is some dust / dirt lodged under the ball which stops it behaving the way it should. You may need to do this in all directions.
