You can definitely try fixing it, but it's easy to break the retainer ring in the process. I would suggest getting a new trackball. It's so inexpensive and easy to replace. Make the phone like new. Totatlly worth it. Try http://www.blackberrytrackball.com

Hope this helps!

Roller ball on blackberry won't work


Was it Like it when you bought it?? If not, then its probably broken.. it happens a lot with rollerballs.. if you take it back to the shop you bought it from they will probably send it away to be fixed.

Blackberry Pearl Tracker ball not working well


pearls have been know to have the track ball go out on them best bet is to take it to store to have them clean it if you try to clean it and you break the silver ring you void the warranty and will have to pay for whole new phone, in the end they will replace the phone for you

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

Roller ball


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

Roller ball on my Blackberry Pearl will not work.


I had the same thing happen. Tried everything to fix it. Finally, after a couple of hours of troubleshooting, I just gave up and went and put in on the charger. When I did that it fixed it. Have no clue why but it did.

Rollerball will not move to the left direction


i had the same the same issue with my roller ball and found out that some how i got oil or some grease on the ball itself. the way i fixed was i "aggressively" wiped the face of the phone back and forth on a cloth and it dried it up. the roller ball worked perfectly after that. it sounds rough or crude but it works.

Pearl roller ball


It might be a case where the track ball has some dirt or debris underneath it. First, turn the device off. Next, press down firmly on the track ball while at the same time rolling it in every direction. Hopefully that will knock loose any debris. Another tip to try is to wet your thumb with a little water and do the same thing.

If those two options don't work, you may try taking out the track ball and blowing out the slot with some compressed air. Below is a link that shows how to remove and clean the track ball:
