All you have to do is take a sheet of paper with print on it. Take the battery out of you phone. Next do a figure eight motion with the ball side down on the phone about 10 times. There is something on the ink on the paper that will make this work again. good luck

The ball won't roll down


best thing to do, other than taking it apart is to get a hard flat surface and a sheet of a4 paper, take any cases etc off the phone hold it flat down to the surface and then roll it around, i normally find in a circular motion works best, this frees mine up perfectly. failing that you will need to take it apart which isnt that hard and clean the pressure pad below the roller ball but this is a bit fiddly!

Roller ball won't work


First Try to carefully clean the track ball with a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol, if that does not work see if the device is under warranty before trying this next step (verify warranty by calling carrier) take a small jewelry flathead screwdriver and remove the chrome piece from around the ball and clean the entire assembly with rubbing alcohol

Hope This Helps

My track ball dont go down pls help me


Unless the ball can be removed for cleaning, the only option you have is to use pure alcohol (not 'rubbing' alcohol with water) and apply a DROP to the ball and then rotate it in all directions using a clean rag or lint-free paper towel. At first, it may cause the ball to slip further but if you repeat this several times and allow it to dry (rotate the ball a few times while drying), you should be able to remove whatever slippery contaminents are causing it to slip. If this doesn't work, there may be a dust build-up on the roller responsible for moving the cursor up and down and disassembly can't be avoided.

Pearl 8130 Camera feature-i can no longer zoom in and out using the roller ball. How can I fix this?


The first time this happened to me - I took the battery out - when put back in the zoom worked again. After a while the zoom stopped working and just now my rollerball wouldn't scroll down. I tried the solution posted about taking the battery out and doing a figure of 8 with phone facing down on a printed page - it fixed both problems. I hope this helps.

My roller ball goes up and down but not side to side please help!


The roller balls on Blackberries are notorious for this. The problem is that they get dirty. It is possible to remove the ball and clean it but that will void your warranty. I suggest calling your service provider and getting it replaced under warranty if the phone is less than a year old. If it is over a year old the warranty is expired already and you might as well take it apart yourself. You can find instructions on how to do this HERE
