Question about Cell Phones
You have two options to repair your trackball. 1) you can send it to a repair facility or 2) You can repair it yourself.
To repair it yourself, you will need to gain access the trackball (rollerball) and its sensor and clean them.
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 towards- you’ll find a sensor wheel. Those wheels are mostly carrying or covered with 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.
