Track ball requires multiple press to get it to do anything


Hi, to change the trackball or trackpad sensitivity of the BlackBerry smartphone, complete the following steps:
1) On the Home screen, go to Options > Screen/Keyboard.
2) In the Trackball or Trackpad section, click Horizontal Sensitivity or Vertical Sensitivity to change the sensitivity level.
3) Press the Menu key and select Save. The new sensitivity levels are saved.
A higher sensitivity number indicates a higher sensitivity level for the trackball or trackpad.
The trackball user interface found on certain BlackBerry smartphones is similar to the trackball used in a mouse in conjunction with a desktop computer.
In the event debris comes in contact with the trackball and affects the usability of the BlackBerry smartphone, rapidly roll the trackball up, down, left, or right to potentially correct the problem.
If rapidly rolling the trackball does not correct the problem, please contact your wireless service provider for support options.
Try to re-install the BlackBerry Device Software using the application loader tool, before you re-install the software please back up the BlackBerry smartphone data.I hope this information will be helpful to you

My blackberry pearl trackball doesnt work


Take it where you bought it and try to get it replaced, saying it's defective. Hopefully you're under warranty, unlike myself who has a **** blackberry who's radio keeps turning off randomly and won't make or recieve calls without having to manually reconnect 'mobile network' hundreds of times a day. Your phone must have got really wet though because buttons and **** don't ******* unless exposed to extremly wet conditions (trust me, I know). I'd like an iphone over this **** for damn sure but i'm stuck with any annoying and fairly useless phone for now.

Trackball on 8100 blackberry not clicking


Watch a tutorial on youtube about cleaning your trackball.

The centre scroll button doesn't 'click'


As you use the trackball on your Blackberry, dirt and oils on your fingers get into the trackball assembly.
You might get some 'traction' on your track ball if you lightly dip a cotton swab in some rubbing alcohol. Swab the trackball, then do a quarter turn, continue until you cover the whole trackball in each direction.
If you get no improvement, then its another defective trackball, and you'll have to return it where you got it; most companies warranty phones 90 days from the date it was replaced.

Trackball on curve wont click down and its a new trackball so its something that goes under it and i dont know what it is?.........?


there is a little micro switch that goes under the trackball it looks like a small square
what it is is a tiny ring taped to the motherboard of the device it's has a cone shape and this is what gives it a feeling of a click when you press onto the trackball
after long life or/and excessive force clicking the little cone brakes, flattens or falls off the mobo
so if you have a spear device for parts carefully remove the square and replace the busted one
i was looking if they sell those switches anywhere on line but its a lot more profitable to sell new bb's :)
hope this helps
