Clean your trackball regularly by slightly dipping a cotton swab into rubbing alcohol and using that to clean your trackball.
Unfortunately, dirt and oils on your fingers wear out the trackball over time, causing it to behave in unpredictable ways.

When i push scroll button down nothing works only side to side up and down works


This is very common for the blackberry's. Sometimes the trackball gets full of lent and dirt which won't allow the wheels to move. The chrome ring around the ball just pops off and the track ball should come out. Try cleaning it with a small brush. If this doesn't fix the problem, then a new track ball can be purchased on ebay for less than $5

try cleaning the track ball with a qtip dipped in alcohol or nail polish remover.. It could be that the track ball isn't "reading" correctly due to oil, etc.

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}

Keyboard and tracking ball problems


Sounds like you have 2 different problems. Your trackball probably needs to be replaced and also your keypad needs to be cleaned or replaced.
