Usually the track ball went bad. If you're out of warranty there is a Blackberry Repair Guide that shows how to open a Blackberry and remove the track ball yourself, the part is available on ebay. There are also third party blackberry repair services that will do this for you, but this one can easily be handled using the DIY approach. It shouldn't have to do anything with the jabra headset, that was just a coincidence.

My trackball on my Blackberry Dash won't move down, and sometimes won't move up or left. Would I beable to repair it my self, and if so how, or must I send it in for trackball repair?


How long have you been using that trackball?

I recommend you replace the trackball because based on what you said it seems it has done its time is now worn

The roller ball doesnt work


The trackball doesn't work at all? Did it suddenly stop working or has it gone from good to bad over time? Going from working well to not going up or down or back and forth to not working at all could be fixed by following the instructions below. Ceasing to work suddenly could mean a defective device. You'll want to call your system provider for assistance. Hopefully the unit is still under warranty.

Most trackball movement problems can be rectified by cleaning the trackball. Try the following steps to see if it helps tp resolve the issue you are having;

1) Turn the unit off, open the back cover and pull the battery out,
2) Take a paper towel, dampen it with water...nothing else, making sure that the towel is only damp and not soaking wet,
3) Rub the damp paper towel on the trackball, over and over, making sure to rub up, down, side-to-side and every which way. This should clean the trackball and remove whatever is causing it to not move smoothly.
4) Wait a minute or two and replace the battery and cover. Once the unit has rebooted, try moving the trackball again. It should be better.

Cheers!

Can not connect to my JABRA BT125 headset


Go to this site, and it will walk you through each step to connect your particular Jabra headset with your cellphone. Choose the headset, and then at the next page, choose your phone. Moving your mouse over each step will change the picture to what you should be seeing on your phone at each step.

My trackball goes somewhere else when i try to press ok, i have to press the enter button instead.HELP ME PLEASE,please!


Trackball sensitivity too high, perhaps? When I have the trackball sensitivity up too high, I have problems clicking on links with the trackball:

Goto options, screen/keyboard (towards the end of the options menu) and lower trackball vertical sensitivity a bit (try to lower it 20 ticks first, then go from there).

Hope this helps,
Bill

Tracking ball is limited in movement. I can scroll across, but not down.


Cause:
The sensitivity of the trackball/trackwheel might be less
Faulty Hardware

Resolution:
Increase the sensitivity by following procedure
Option -> Screen and Keyboard -> Horizontal Sensitivity and Vertical Sensitivity to 100

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 doesn't move down


Good evening!
If the trackball is not scrolling or even moving in the proper direction this can mean a couple of different things. It is possible that it is just dirty. Yet it is very common that the trackballs can get roughed up over time and a replacement may be necessary. Trackballs are easy to fix and you wont even need to go to your cell phone provider for a replacement (they will probably over charge you, or as you said, ****** you into a new contract).
A few ways to clean the trackball can be:
1. Use something to hold the trackball in place while the other hand uses some sort of rubbing alcohol to wipe the trackball.
2. This is a little more technical but it is VERY easy. Removing the trackball is extremely easy. You can use a simple screw driver to flip off the silver ring around the trackball and simply turn the phone over and tap it a few times to have the ball out. When the ball is out, using rubbing alcohol to simply clean around it. Just be careful... the trackball mechinism is VERY fragile. To replace it, the ball can only go in 2 ways and determining this is very easy, if it goes back in, it goes in, if not, move it. Putting the ball back in requires barely any force. Then the silver ring only goes in 1 way. The three hooks slide right in.
3. Replacing the trackball is the last idea. I have replaced my trackball on my Blackberry once already. You can find replacement trackballs for a cheap price on amazon, ranging from $2-10. You can also find them on ebay or simply googling Blackberry Trackball Replacement. The same way to replace the ball is as I said to remove it.
There are many videos or instructions on the web for replacing or taking out the trackball.
Glad to help you out with your Blackberry device! Good luck!
