I took out the trackball and the whole thing came

My blackberry trackball wouldn't scroll down so i tried to clean it and the ball came out with all the other parts that holds the trackball in place! How do I put everything back in? My mom took it to a phone store and they said the parts are cracked or something so it is not fixable i don't see why they cannot fix it if they supposed to be a phone store... .

You will need to find a replacement part. Reconstruction of the trackball assembly in near impossible but the part can be found in many places for under $20. The repair is as easy as lining up the tabs and snapping it in place.

Of recent...my BlackBerry 8900 trackball randomly scrolls to the top of the screen. And once this starts it does it continually. Then a next time it stops and doesn't respond to any movements of the track...


Sounds like you might have something stuck in the trackball. I would roll a piece of tape so the sticky side is up and roll the ball around on the tape to try and get some of the dust and other things off of it.

Tracking ball is limited in movement. I can scroll across, but not down.


Cause:
The sensitivity of the trackball/trackwheel might be less
Faulty Hardware

Resolution:
Increase the sensitivity by following procedure
Option -> Screen and Keyboard -> Horizontal Sensitivity and Vertical Sensitivity to 100

The ball won't scroll down


Have you removed the ball at any time? If it is put back in wrong, it could cause this. If not, the ball assembly itself might be bad. You can find them fairly cheap on eBay.

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

My blackberry scroll key not working


I just fixed mine trackball which can only move in the vertical direction. By removing the silver cover (there are three small clips that hold it in place), the trackball and its enclosure will fall out. Carefully remove the white plastic cover (there are 2 clips that hold them in place) on the other side of the enclosure. Take out all 4 cylinders (4 magnet at the end) with tweezer and clean thoroughly. The 4 cylinders got clog with lint and dirt which prevent the ball in contact with the cylinder. This will solve your problem.

The ball won't scroll down


Pop the ring around the track ball out with a small blade or your finger nail. Three double prongs hold it in place (bottom and both sides, none on top). Turn device over and gently tap the back. Track ball will release once ring is removed. At this point you can view the track ball and see exactely what is causing the block. Clean if needed with q-tip or remove lint/debris/etc... Just did this with my 8830. Working perfectly now. - {would not scroll down at all prior to}

Trackball doesn't move down


Good evening!
If the trackball is not scrolling or even moving in the proper direction this can mean a couple of different things. It is possible that it is just dirty. Yet it is very common that the trackballs can get roughed up over time and a replacement may be necessary. Trackballs are easy to fix and you wont even need to go to your cell phone provider for a replacement (they will probably over charge you, or as you said, ****** you into a new contract).
A few ways to clean the trackball can be:
1. Use something to hold the trackball in place while the other hand uses some sort of rubbing alcohol to wipe the trackball.
2. This is a little more technical but it is VERY easy. Removing the trackball is extremely easy. You can use a simple screw driver to flip off the silver ring around the trackball and simply turn the phone over and tap it a few times to have the ball out. When the ball is out, using rubbing alcohol to simply clean around it. Just be careful... the trackball mechinism is VERY fragile. To replace it, the ball can only go in 2 ways and determining this is very easy, if it goes back in, it goes in, if not, move it. Putting the ball back in requires barely any force. Then the silver ring only goes in 1 way. The three hooks slide right in.
3. Replacing the trackball is the last idea. I have replaced my trackball on my Blackberry once already. You can find replacement trackballs for a cheap price on amazon, ranging from $2-10. You can also find them on ebay or simply googling Blackberry Trackball Replacement. The same way to replace the ball is as I said to remove it.
There are many videos or instructions on the web for replacing or taking out the trackball.
Glad to help you out with your Blackberry device! Good luck!

Roller ball


Same problem, wouldn't scroll down. Lifted the ring pulled out the rollerball and cleaned it with alchohol. Used a cotton swab, soaked it pretty good and rolled it around a bit. Set it back in and it worked like new. Watch how you take it out so you can put it back in the same way.

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.
