Question about AT&T Blackberry Curve 8300 Smartphone
Can't believe it, but I licked it and it worked for me too! It's really weird, but it worked!

I don't know how else to say this! Don't spend 5 hours trying to clean the trackball!! It does not work!!!!! Just get it replaced for a really good price. Call 323-651-5555 and if you are in the Los Angeles area it will only take 5 minutes of your time to get the trackball replaced.

Here's a link to a procedure to change the color of the LED under the trackball. You can use this tutorial to aid in disassembly and clean the trackball at the same time.
Alternately, you could use a bit of hydrogen peroxide or cleaning (rubbing) alcohol and a q-tip to clean it without taking it apart. Be sure to turn the BB off completely before you do this and wait about 12-24 hours before you turn it on again (make sure it's dry.) You can also blow a bit of clean compressed air in the small opening around the trackball.

The only way to fully get it up and running again is physically remove andclean (with alcohol) or replace the part. If you want somebody else to do it for you, goto Blackberry Trackball. If you want to do it yourself, here is a Blackberry Repair Guide that shows how, the part is available on Ebay.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS POP OUT THE ROUND "O" PART AROUND THE TRACKBALL.
THIS WILL MAKE THE TRACKBALL COME OUT.
BLOW INTO THE HOLE WHERE THE TRACKBALL IS AND/OR CLEAN OUT WITH A QTIP IFYOU WANT.
OTHERWISE JUST BLOWING OUT THE LITTLE DUST STUCK INSIDE OF IT REALLY WORKS!!!!

Perfect solution for my problem! A little rubbing alcohol on a Q tip fixed it and now it scrolls down perfectly - Thank you!

I used alcohol and a qtip. and basically swabbed it clean. I shut down the BB and it works again
