Most likely your trackball is broken or continated with grease and dust. If you have confidence in your take apart skills or have a tech savy friend you can use a blackberry repair guide that will show you how to disassemble it step by step, or you can go to a third party repair service.

Track ball is stuck


If the trackball is stuck, you can turn the mouse upside down and push the trackball into the tabletop and roll it around. This will help to clean it off. With the Mighty Mouse this is a common problem.

NEED HELP SETTING VOICEMAIL.TRACKBALL IS STUCK, GOES LEFT,RIGHT,& DOWN,NO UP.NEED INSTRUCTION MANUAL.


You can download the user manual (as well as other guides) here:

http://docs.blackberry.com/en/smartphone_users/subcategories/?userType=1&category=BlackBerry+Smartphones&subCategory=BlackBerry+Tour+9600+Series


If the trackball won't go in one direction, try putting one drop of denatured alcohol onto the trackball and then moving it all around, that should fix it. If it doesn't, lift the trackball up slightly -- very gently -- with the blade of a small pocket knife and blow compressed air underneath it.

The ball wont roll on my blackberry. Help!


The trackball is easily removed for cleaning by just pulling the trim ring around the trackball off with your fingernail. Remove the trackball and clean with alcohol. Reverse the process to clean.

Blackberry 8830 trackball gets stuck and not move to left


The trackball in any BlackBerry is the weakest part of the device. Gunk and lint get stuck under the trackball and will gum it up. You can use a small screwdriver or sewing needle to pop the chrome retainer out and then remove the entire trackball assembly. You can take the entire thing apart but I would not suggest it unless you've got the skills to put it back together. Soaking the assembly in alcohol might do the trick.

My blackberry world edition's trackball suddenly started selecting things as if I pressed the trackball even though I haven't. If I open email it clicks the links in it as I scroll past and reply pops up...


You might have one of three things wrong with your blackberry 1. something is stuck down there like a peice of plastic causing the button to seem like its being pressed all the time or 2. there could be water damage in there thats if you bring your phone into the bathroom with you while taking showers humidity is like cancer to phones it might not show up right away but it can happen 3. someone might of pushed the trackball so hard that it dented the button in this case i would take it in to get repaired. If it is one of the other two it should be an easy fix you can check for either one of these problems underneath the trackball by removing the ring that is around the trackball you can do this by carefully prying around it off then you should be able to drop the trackball itself right out of the phone aswell as any thing stuck in there or if there is water damage or any water down there I suggest you turn the phone off as soon as possible to prevent any further damage then I would just leave the phone in a nice dry place to get rid of the water then the trackball should work again same thing goes for removing anything that might be stuck down there after that is all done with you should be able to reassemble it remember the ring around the trackball only goes in one way so do force it or you risk breaking it.

Sidekick 2008 trackball


More than likely, the trackball on your Sidekick 2008 is really dirty.Overtime, dirt and grime gets in between the ball and the sensors.

It is really easy to clean it, you will need q-tips and IPA alcohol. No dis assembly is usually needed!

Check out the Video at the following link to see how the trackball cleaning on the Sidekick 2008 is done

Blackberry 8830 wont track down - trackball stuck


This is usually caused by the trackball getting dirty.

Use a q-tip dipped in IPA and clean it. Roll the trackball around and swab the q-tip around to clean.

If cleaning fails then you will need to replace the Blackberry trackball.

Check the following link on instructions on how to do that.

Trackball


I just had this happen to me. I blew air (from an air can used to clean keyboards, etc) into the trackball and it started working fine. It seemed there was dust or something stuck inside. Good Luck!
