Your trackball and the keyboard seems not working. You may need a replacement for both parts.

Cursor won't move to the right


Give this a shot- get out a couple of pages of computer printer paper, place the paper on a flat surface; lock the key pad on your curve. Place your blackberry face down on the paper and gently (don't press down) rub your phone up and down, back and forth a few times. Try your cursor now, believe it or not, this works pretty well (the paper gives enough resistance to make the track ball move). As long as there isn't a bigger issue with the track ball, this should solve your problem.

My blackberry curve 8330 keyboard is locked up. dont know how this happened. ball moves curser up and down on the facepage but will not work when i press the keys. the screen goes black in a few seconds...


the keyboard on the device isnt registering the key clicks because either the keyboard isnt pressing down all the way or the circuit board that the keyboard belongs to is malfunctioning. If it is that, parts for the phone is available on ebay.

The keys on my blackberry 8330 stopped working. I took the batter out and it powered up. The trackball moves the cursor, but I can't select anything.


If you have not tried this yet, follow the instructions below.


STEP 1.
There is a Device Self Test Diagnostic Application that will test your BB including your keys on your keyboard. You can check each key one at a time. Go to OPTIONS, (the WRENCH ICON).
STEP 2.
On this screen select STATUS.


STEP 3.

Type the word TEST. (you won't see it but it will give you a prompt when ready to proceed. (


STEP 4.

It will prompt you to select START from the MENU.
This will begin the diagnostic selection process.


STEP 5

Click on KEYBOARD & TRACKBALL.


STEP 6

Click on RUN.


STEP 7

Press each key one at a time they should show up on the screen as you do so. If they do not function the keyboard is probably defective.


You should take the phone to the corporate store of the service provider to have it replaced if it is under warranty or if insured. Call the insurance company if it is out of warranty. Either way your BB should be replaced.


PS Note down any error messages you receive (in this case diagnostic test failed) so you can accurately tell the technician/counter person when he asks for the problem. It can help the Tech speed things up while troubleshooting.

Blackberry 8330 w/ frozen keyboard (from magnet???)


A strong magnet next to the unit would NOT cause the problem.

Somehow the keybooard is locked. I recommend you take the phone to your cell provider's kiosk someplace and they can probably unlock it for you. Have them show you how as well for the future.

My Blackberry Curve will not respond to any key. I have taken out the battery out and rebooted the phone and when it comes up I can scroll around with the trackball, but the phone will not respond to...


this isn't a solution. i am having the EXACT same problem. nothing is working. it shuts off for no reason. i didn't touch anything. and it keeps typing "25252525252525252525525" or "ededededededededed" by itself, even though i didn't have any water damage. i cannot click the trackball either but it moves. and i have restarted it so many times, but it still won't work. i also need help.

The tracking ball rotates but it does not move over the icons on the left side. Is there anything I can do to fix this?


Depending on how comfortable you are with removing the trackball it's not hard to fix... you may have some dirt or grit interfering with the trackball and/or sensors. Take a small screwdriver or blade and gently pop the silver ring around the trackball off. This will free the actual trackball housing. Use an old toothbrush to clean everything. I also soaked the trackball in a little rubbing alcohol. Just make sure it is completely dry before reassembling. If that doesn't work you can purchase replacement trackballs from places like crackberry.com.
