There is a little micro switch that goes under the trackball it looks like a small square
what it is is a tiny ring taped to the motherboard of the device it's has a cone shape and this is what gives it a feeling of a click when you press onto the trackball
after long life or/and excessive force clicking the little cone brakes, flattens or falls off the mobo
so if you have a spear device for parts carefully remove the square and replace the busted one
i was looking if they sell those switches anywhere on line but its a lot more profitable to sell new bb's :)
hope this helps

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.

Trackball wont click


the adhesive sticker may not be there anymore so it would be best to take the phone to a mobile tech and have it fixed.

Cannot scroll up with my Blackberry Curve 8310 trackball


It is a very common problem. You just need a new trackball. Should be about $25. If you want to make it work temporary, then just removed it and clean the trackball and the phone part under it (on the phone itself) with 99% alcohol. It might work for a while again

Keys Wont Work


Did your trackball fall off and then you replaced it? If so you might have also lost the button under the trackball which makes the trackball click when pushed. This can be repalaced. However the part is very hard to find. Try some local repair stores hoping they have one in stock. if they do it shouldn't be more than $50

CUrve 8330 having trackball error


Hi
It seems that there might be something blocking it, like dust, press the trackball down and then try to scroll quickly towards the bottom, try it a couple of times, it should fix your problem

Trackball "select" not working


Hi - I had the same problem as this and tried to solve it by taking out the trackball and cleaning it as detailed in other posts. However this did not work.

I got it working eventually by carefully lifting the small square orange plactic cover which the trackball sits over and presses down on to select. By cleaning under that I got it to work. You need to be careful as this cover also holds some connectors in place.

The moral of the story is to keep the curve in its holster in your pocket (I lost my holster which is when the trouble started).

Have fun

Trackball on Blackberry Curve not working properly


I found that removing the track ball and cleaning the contact and track ball with a cotton swab moistened with a small amount of isopropyl alcohol, it worked a 100 percent better when I returned the ball to the handset. DO NOT SATURATE THE BALL OR THE HANDSET WITH THE ALCOHOL!! ONLY USE A VERY SMALL AMOUNT!!!!
