TFT-5600 RKM Trackball not fully functional

Trackball? Think on these computers that there should be a small ring around the outside of the trackball. This ring turns? quarter or half turn then you can remove it and gain access to the inside rollers where the ball sits. Clean the rollers out and then put it back together and ytou should be good for a few more months. then just repeat when the problem gets to bad. Remember this is all "I THINK" Hard to remember back that far.

You can download the user manual (as well as other guides) here:

If the trackball won't go in one direction, try putting one drop of denatured alcohol onto the trackball and then moving it all around, that should fix it. If it doesn't, lift the trackball up slightly -- very gently -- with the blade of a small pocket knife and blow compressed air underneath it.

Blackberry bold trackball goes left, right and down but not up how do I fix this?

This is a common problem on Blackberrys with trackballs. When the trackball goes bad you lose one direction first. Inovagent can replace your Blackberry trackball or you can find another local place to have it done.

Ball on blackberry wont navigate up or down

Hi. BlackBerry smartphone trackball fails to roll in a particular direction because, debris is lodged in the trackball.
The trackball user interface found on certain BlackBerry smartphones is similar to the trackball used in a mouse in a desktop computer.
Using for certain period debris comes in contact with the trackball and affects the usability of the BlackBerry smartphone, rapidly roll the trackball up, down, left, or right to potentially correct the problem.
If rapidly rolling the trackball does not correct the problem, please contact your wireless service provider for support options.
I hope this information will be helpfull.

Horizontal hold not working

inside are 2 tiny black rubber wheels one to left and one south of that- clean with alcohol on a cloth 9(not soaked) - I scrap them with my nail going across & you'll see gunk come off. Also turn it upside down & tap it so all dirt inside falls out. wipe all around inside with cloth. Then clean the circle that holds ball. It has to have no dirt on inside area.

Sidekick trackball won't work =[

More than likely, the trackball on your Sidekick 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!

Check out the Video at the following link to see how the trackball cleaning on the Sidekick is done

Cannot scroll up with my Blackberry Curve 8310 trackball

It is a very common problem. You just need a new trackball. Should be about $25. If you want to make it work temporary, then just removed it and clean the trackball and the phone part under it (on the phone itself) with 99% alcohol. It might work for a while again
