Trackball scrolls but wont scroll up on the screen!

The ball will scroll around so I don't think that it needs to be cleaned. However, it won't scroll up on the screen so I don't know what to do!

I've been answering this problem for years, it is a common problem with the trackball, sometimes it will get sticky and unscrollable to certain direction, and the good news is it is easy to fix. read the source http://www.unique-stuff.co.cc/fixing_sticky_blackberry_trackball.html

I spilled tea on the trackball and need to clean it out. I have dismantled it as much as I can and cleaned the ball and its rollers, as well as getting out a lot of dust that had accumulated inside. But...


Don't submerse it. If it has a trackball, there should be a way to remove it. Look at where the trackball is, and you should see kind of a circle around it. That is the part that come off, it should turn a little. Usually they have a couple of little notches to give you a little bit of a grip on it.

Of recent...my BlackBerry 8900 trackball randomly scrolls to the top of the screen. And once this starts it does it continually. Then a next time it stops and doesn't respond to any movements of the track...


Sounds like you might have something stuck in the trackball. I would roll a piece of tape so the sticky side is up and roll the ball around on the tape to try and get some of the dust and other things off of it.

Got my trackball a bit wet and now wont work, what should i do?


You might have damaged some circuitry, but can try cleaning the trackball with alcohol and a Q-Tip. You need to roll the ball around with the alcohol-soaked Q-Tip, then let it try. This will have the nice side effect of helping drive off any leftover water, too.

Sidekick 2008 trackball doesn't scroll down or left anymore


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!

The ball won't scroll down


Have you removed the ball at any time? If it is put back in wrong, it could cause this. If not, the ball assembly itself might be bad. You can find them fairly cheap on eBay.

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.

My blackberry scroll key not working


I just fixed mine trackball which can only move in the vertical direction. By removing the silver cover (there are three small clips that hold it in place), the trackball and its enclosure will fall out. Carefully remove the white plastic cover (there are 2 clips that hold them in place) on the other side of the enclosure. Take out all 4 cylinders (4 magnet at the end) with tweezer and clean thoroughly. The 4 cylinders got clog with lint and dirt which prevent the ball in contact with the cylinder. This will solve your problem.

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}
