The adhesive sticker may not be there anymore so it would be best to take the phone to a mobile tech and have it fixed.

Is there a fix for a roller that will not scroll in all directions? it seems the pickup does not work in all directions

Try to update the OS of the device or it may be the ball itself. They do sell replacements and do it yourself kits. You can perform a Google search for Blackberry trackball replacement. It is not expensive, less than $10.

My blackberry 8110 keeps frezzing

I have had similar problems to this. It could have something to do with the trackball. I had been I found that by removing the trackball I could key in the password and the Blackberry behaved normally again. Then I reinstalled the trackball. Here is a link on cleaning the trackball.

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.

Bb8800 the pearl/cursor does not scroll up

This is usally 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.
