Try putting a small drop of kitchen de-greaser (Mr Muscle etc) on your finger and rolling the ball with that finger. Do not pour it on to the device, just a small amount on your finger should cure it.

Works for me every time.

My blackberry bold toggle button will not move around the phone.it won`t go up and down or left to right,only works when you press down on it


I had the same problem today. Turn off phone, remove battery. Take Q-tip and use rubbing alcohol to clean the ball...this will also clean the contacts inside. Make sure to move the ball around while putting the alcohol on. You dont need to drown it..just enough to get it covered. Once dry, put battery in and then turn on phone. It should work...mine is working fine.

Hi! my trackpad for blackberry bold doesnt seem to allow me to press it. it feels like something is stuck under


Sounds like the track ball membrane is broken. The membrane can be replaced, it's a small metal disc right under the trackball. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to Blackberry Repair. If you want to do it yourself, here is an Blackberry Bold Repair Guide that shows how to repair a Blackberry.

The trackball for my blackberry dont move to up !! :( is there somthimg that i can do ?


This is a common problem with the bold 9000 , try taking it to a dealer shop they can change the ball for a very small amount of money. Or else if its under warranty send it back to RIM.
Next time go for the New bold , they got rid of the bal l completely and they have a new track pad

Bold 9000


Whenever my Bold would do that, I would just press really hard on the ball and roll it side to side rapidly. This normally would fix this.

The one time it didn't, I had to call AT&T's warranty (800.801.1101) to get a replacement. This option is free, unless there is liquid damage to the phone.

My stroll ball has broken off how can i get that fix?


You can purchase a new track ball and retainer ring off of ebay for less than $5.00 and its very easy to install. just line up the tabs and push down on the chrome retainer ring till its flush with the buttons. Just search for key words "blackberry track ball" on ebay.

Problem for RIM BlackBerry Bold 9000 Smartphone Track ball does not allow south scrolling; it only allows east, west, north, scrolling. What can I do to fix?


Hi,
1) 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.
2) 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.

Cannot zoom in or out while taking pictures. trackball and volume control keys are also not working for this


When my camera stops zooming, I take the battery out and put it back on... this usually solves the issue.
