Question about RIM BlackBerry Curve 8310 Smartphone
On the screen I can only scroll down using the trackball even though it does roll upwards
I have tried taking out battery to re-boot but doesn't change anything

SOURCE: Trackball issue
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! Like you should be during the whole process as all parts have very small plastic nipple which can break very easy. When the silver plastic ring is removed you will see the inner trackball component which can be removed completely. Before doing this you should carefully remove the silver metal ring that holds the trackball component in its position. The trackball component itself can also be carved. For every direction the ball can roll to you’ll find a sensor wheel. Those wheels are mostly carrying some gunk you should clean them from. 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. Your BlackBerry’s trackball should be back working now.
YOU NEED TO CLEAN JUST SENSOR WHEELS NOT BALLS ITSELF.

SOURCE: trackball not moving right
This is right, the problem is in the trackball. If you can get hold of alcohol like the one used years ago to clean the heads of tape decks etc, you may be able to put some in the trackball and rotate the ball around in all directions with the hope that it may clean it.

I think the easiest way to resolve as many of these issues is by resetting your blackberry.
Hold down ALT+RIGHT SHIFT(CAP)+DELETE keys - I'm not 100% sure this works on your model but it is soft reset.
Go into Options, then select Security Options, then select General Settings, then activate the BlackBerry menu and select the option to wipe the device - Will reset all your personalised settings to default
