I have a blackberry phone and the cursor on the phone don't go down, only sideways and up


The problem you describe is a common occurrence with all BlackBerry phones with a trackball. The cause of this is a build-up of dirt, dust, lint and debris that gets trapped under the trackball. Over time, the build-up fuses together with the natural oils on our fingers as we spin the trackball. This leads to small chunks of dirt trapped that get big enough to prevent the trackball from spinning in a given direction - and sometimes even from being able to press down on it to make a selection.
To fix this, you will need the following items:
A. BlackBerry (with Trackball) B. Small, flathead screwdriver (Jeweler's driver) C. Toothpick (1) D. Lint-free cleaning cloth (or toilet paper/napkin) E. Q-tip (2)
1. Power off the BB and remove the battery cover and battery 2. With the phone facing you, insert the small, flathead screwdriver between the outside of the chrome track ring and the edge of the plastic phone face. 3. Slowly apply pressure downward, as if you were trying to open a can of paint. 4. There are 3 tiny clips that hold the track ring in place. Slowly wedge around until all three have been loosened. (Be careful as these are extremely fragile pieces and if they break, there's no repairing it, only replacement). 5. Once you remove the track ring, you can easily remove the trackball. 6. Look inside the the hole where the trackball was and if you spot any "gunk" or build-up, use the toothpick to flush it out. (Be careful not to damage the expose logic board) 7. Once any build-up has been removed, take the trackball and using a Q-tip, gently roll the ball around while also pushing the ball in, so as to free any trapped debris. 8. After a few swabs and after any visible gunk has been removed, insert the trackball and then the chrome ring, carefully! 9. Roll the trackball around and check for any blockage. 10. If there is blockage, disassemble the trackball and track ring again and repeat steps 6-8 until clean. 11. Once clean & reassembled, insert the battery and battery cover and power the BB on. 12. Check/re-check scrolling and selecting with the trackball, verifying that it works correctly.

Complete instructions may be found here: http://www.blackberryforums.com/general-8300-series-discussion-curve/108122-how-clean-your-8300-blackberry-trackball-pic-guide.html

They are pretty much the same unit. At least the trackball assembly is the same.

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!

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

My 8320 doesn't want to respond


Usually the button membrane under the track ball goes bad. If you're out of warranty try to remove the trackball and push the membrane back in place if it became misaligned, clean it if necessary. There is a Blackberry Repair Guide that shows how to open a Blackberry and remove the track ball yourself. Once it is open it's as easy as peeling the membrane off the logic board, scratching its bottom with a flathead screwdriver. There are also third party blackberry repair services that will do this for you or supply you with a membrane if you need a new one.

Track ball


never remove the ring and clean the trackball unless your phone isn't under a warrenty. Run the app loader on the phone if it doesn't work you'll have to replace the phone through your phone company if you have a warrenty. IF you don't have a warrenty you are free to try and clean it or replace the trackball and ring, they are amazingly cheap. check out amazon.

Bought used sim card for Blackberry rim 7520


the phone number should be retrieved from the sim card or carrier login procedure.

I had a few blackberry's, including a 75xx series one, and when I popped in another card (I have a couple of prepaid subscriptions for testing), the number always came up automatically.

Should work... If not, try contacting RIM/Blackberry support, but I doubt they'll still give support for the 7xxx series models... sorry
