This is usually caused by little pieces of dirt/debris that gets underneath the ball. if you can find a small, slim tool, you can pop the ball out (silver ring included). when you do that, blow inside the hole and also clean the ball off with some rubbing alcohol. make sure the ball is completely dry before you put it back in your phone. carefull not to lose it, they're slippery suckers!

SOURCE: I can't scroll down with the rollerball

The balls on the blackberry's get clogged up with finger oil, skin, and all sorts of grime I think. But I fixed mine by shutting the phone down and then rubbing hard against the roll ball in each direction and pushing each time until the clicker under the roll ball clicked. You could also try alcohol.

Blackberry pearl turns off when i touch the rollerball


Try a different ball in the device they are fairly easy to remove. Borrow a friends entire track ball use nail file to remove the ring then look to make sure what way the mechanism and ring go back in and try your firends if his/hers works in your phone replace the defective part. 2b4daea.jpg fb71594.jpgeb3c8be.jpg

Blackberry Curve rollerball scrolls but will not select when push


Try removing the silver cover around the scroll ball, and remove the ball. There should be a little white square underneath it. If there is no white square, but a red square, then it could be water damage. I had the same issue with mine.
