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 tracking ball has stopped working. Tried removing the battery while powered on, but it's still not working properly. Can move sideways but not up or down and can't retrieve messages.


All that is, is dirty. Just push it down a few times and try to roll it in a circle and dislodge what's stuck in it. Once you get it rolling free. Take a cotton swab, dip it in pure rubbing alcohol, not dripping, and rub it all over the ball, move the ball around and let it dry for like 3min. Your ball will be fixed and clean

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.

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

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.

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.

The track ball on my blackberry 8310 stopped working.


No, but fortunately the trackball is not hard or expensive to replace. If you are technically savvy you can do this yourself. Just purchase a trackball on the internet. The trackball easily comes off if you put a small flat screw driver under the outer side of the chrome ring and pull if off. Let me know if you needed more help. Good luck

Blackberry rolling ball will not roll down


Cleaning the track ball on blackberry phones. Remove the metal ring then the ball mechanism remember how you removed it because it needs to go in the same way. You can also try removing the battery from phone taking a qtip with alcohol the higher the percentage of alcohol the better. and wiping and rolling the ball around even without removing it from the phone. this usually helps unless the ball is extremely dirty. Below are step by step ins for removing the ball. just follow the link

The ball won't scroll down


Pop the ring around the track ball out with a small blade or your finger nail. Three double prongs hold it in place (bottom and both sides, none on top). Turn device over and gently tap the back. Track ball will release once ring is removed. At this point you can view the track ball and see exactely what is causing the block. Clean if needed with q-tip or remove lint/debris/etc... Just did this with my 8830. Working perfectly now. - {would not scroll down at all prior to}
