Good evening!
Trackballs are VERY easy to replace! You can take it to your cell phone provider but there is a good chance they will claim the phone is broken.
I would recommend searching on Amazon.com, Ebay, or just googling Blackberry Trackball replacement. They are inexpensive, range from $2 to $10 depending where you look and the quality of the trackball.
I personally have replaced my Blackberry's trackball with a new one off of Amazon. It is very easy to replace. You just need to be careful with handling the trackball due to they are very fragile.
Here is a bunch of replacements you can look into on Amazon:

Youtube even has a few videos on replacing the trackball.
Glad to help you out and good luck with your Blackberry!

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.

Track ball requires multiple press to get it to do anything


Hi, to change the trackball or trackpad sensitivity of the BlackBerry smartphone, complete the following steps:
1) On the Home screen, go to Options > Screen/Keyboard.
2) In the Trackball or Trackpad section, click Horizontal Sensitivity or Vertical Sensitivity to change the sensitivity level.
3) Press the Menu key and select Save. The new sensitivity levels are saved.
A higher sensitivity number indicates a higher sensitivity level for the trackball or trackpad.
The trackball user interface found on certain BlackBerry smartphones is similar to the trackball used in a mouse in conjunction with a desktop computer.
In the event 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.
Try to re-install the BlackBerry Device Software using the application loader tool, before you re-install the software please back up the BlackBerry smartphone data.I hope this information will be helpful to you

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

Blackberry 8830 wont track down - trackball stuck


This is usually caused by the trackball getting dirty.

Use a q-tip dipped in IPA and clean it. Roll the trackball around and swab the q-tip around to clean.

If cleaning fails then you will need to replace the Blackberry trackball.

Check the following link on instructions on how to do that.
