Rollerball not working


A software reload should fix it. If that doesn't work it should just need a cleaning.

How to fix a faulty Blackberry rollerball/trackball


There are a few relatively simple solutions to fixing a faulty Blackberry rollerball/trackball.

Compressed Air

Spraying some compressed air on the ball and round the sides of the ball can sometimes loosen the compacted dirt & dust on the rolling mechanism.

You can pick up compressed air from your local hardware store.

WD40

Spray a tiny amount of WD40 on a cotton bud and rub it onto the rollerball. This can free up the mechanism and lubricate it.

Removing and Cleaning the Rollerball/Trackball

  1. Using a small flathead screw driver gently prise the silver ring around the rollerball from the top (be extremely careful as the catches are made of plastic and can break easily)
  2. The rollerball module should come out with easy
  3. Using a clean paint brush, gently brush the inside of the Blackberry where the module came from
  4. Using a toothbrush clean the rollerball module gently around the rollers on the underside and also clean the actual rollerball
  5. When replacing the rollerball module it will only fit one way so don't worry about putting it in upside down
  6. There are three plastic catches on the silver ring, there should be one at the bottom & two at the top. Line them up on the phone and press it back in place gently.


Replacing the rollerball/trackball

Sometimes the mechanism or the rollerball can be come damaged and cleaning will not solve the problem. In this case you can replace the rollerball by following the instructions above about cleaning and purchase a replacement rollerball from eBay or one of the other countless online stores that see Blackberry parts.

I would always recommend that you buy genuine Blackberry replacement parts as these are usually of a higher quality than copies.

My rollerball won't click.


I'm having the same problem with this. One of my friends and a Att worker have suggested that replacing the Rollerball with a new one which can be bought off Ebay for 5 or 6 bucks can fix the problem. If that does't work then check to see if water damage has taken place, if any moisture has gotten to the phone it may be that. Other then replacing the rollerball i have no other solution.
