You can actually pop the trackball out and clean it and the sensors. remove (gently) the silver ring around the ball. if you break it you can buy new ones cheap.. it just snaps in to place. then the ball will fall out and you can take a q-tip and rubbing alcohol and clean it.

My bb 8100 track ball will not go left! How do I fix it?


Hello.

Your Blackberry probably just needs cleaning.

Removing the pearl’s cover would the best way to get access to its sensor and clean it.

Carefully remove the silver metal ring that holds the trackball component in its position. The silver ring which covers the trackball can easily be removed if you use a small screwdriver to lift it at the outer side of the ring. Be careful here! all parts have very small plastic pieces which can break very easy. When the silver plastic ring is removed, you will see the inner trackball component which can be removed completely. The trackball component itself can also be carved. For every direction the ball can roll, you’ll find a sensor wheel. You'll probably find that that those wheels are dirty and need cleaning. Once this is done put everything back together to the place the pieces came from and secure the trackball with the silver plastic ring you removed in the first step.

Hope this helps.

BB Pearl's trackball scrolls but it will not


There is probably some corrosion underneith the center dome cover on the select button. It is held on by some tape. Simply remove the track ball then remove the center select button dome and clean/scrap both sides with a small screwdriver and reinstall. You will probably have to retape it down. This should get you up and running in no time.

Need to fix blackberry trackball


When this has happened to me I've used one of those wet wipes or a Q-tip soaked with rubbing alcohol to clean it off. It usually takes a few wipes. Sometimes I've taken it apart and cleaned the trackball with the q-tip when it's gotten really bad.
Here's a link to show you how it's done:

Trackball will not go down. Pearl 8100


It has been in my experience with the 8100 that if you can't scroll a certain direction, there was debris on the roller preventing it from registering the roll. Turn the phone off, press down on the track ball (as if to press a button) roll the ball down (in your case). This may help dislodge whatever debris is caught in the roller. It has worked for me several times. You may want to try and clean the trackball as well with some rubbing alcohol and a q-tip.

If it were a software problem, then I would imagine you turning off the phone (battery pull) would clear this up anyways.

Best Regards,
Bill

My trackball on bb 9000 won't move down


good luck.
if you can get the part -- its a trackball assembly btw not just the ball itself
you press down on the silver ring around the ball and turn, the cover will fall out. use a small probe and lift the assembly out.
many times there's fuzz in there -- check it out before you buy a new assembly

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.
