There is an conductive lense on the bottom of your track ball and on the circuit board. the reason to have two lenses on one connector is unknown to me. but luckily for you (usually) the trackball lense will flatten and need replaced. to replace a trackball is 8.99$ u.s. and just press ur fingernail at the bottom of the silver ring and pull up GENTLY! after that there are 3 snaps for the new trackball (left, right, and bottom) just snap into place! if that doesnt work you may have to replace the connector on the pcb which is difficult and voids warranty!

How to move applications on a BlackBerry Tour


With its default setup, when you download an application to your BlackBerry Tour, it goes into the Downloads folder. However, this isn't where most users want to keep their applications -- typically they move them to the Applications folder, the Home folder, or a custom folder.

To move an application, highlight its icon with the trackball and press the BlackBerry button (the one with seven dots to the left of the trackball) and select "Move To Folder" from the menu that pops up. A list of all of your folders will appear; select the folder you want to move it to and either press the trackball or the Enter key. The application will disappear from the current folder and it can now be found in the folder you moved it to.

You can also move the application around within that folder, if you want to switch the order of programs. This can be useful for the Home folder if you're using the Zen layout, because the first six programs in the Home folder appear on the main screen. To change the order of applications within a folder, hover over an application you want to move, press the BlackBerry button, and choose "Move." Then go to the position you want to place the folder, and press the trackball.

If you want your downloaded applications to go somewhere else rather than the Downloads folder, you can specify a location by clicking the BlackBerry button when you're in the Home folder and selecting Options. Scroll down to Downloads Folder, press the trackball or Enter, and choose a new folder to save your downloaded applications to. (Be sure to save your change when exiting the Options screen.)

Trackball for blackberry does not move smoothly


What do you mean...can it move in all four directions?

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!

Blackberry trackball wont work


I have the Blackberry Tour.......I work in all kinds of environments....so I get dust, dirt, and debris in my trackball......every 3-4 weeks I cannot move the trackball.......all you gotta do is get AIR DUSTER, the same you use for your computer keyboard etc. and keep it about 3-4 inches away and spray the air at your trackball and move it around......just keep spraying it for about 1-2 seconds at a time and move the ball around after every spray and you are good to go!!!!!

Trackball does not functioning properly


Settings could help some, but I tried that originally with my ball as the first step, and it did nothing. It was definitely the ball that was broken (I frequently use lotion and other products on my hands, and I think that created the buildup.) I would suggest getting a new one to fix that issue, if you can. I got a new blue trackball (go knicks!) at www.blackberrytrackball.com

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.
