Question about AT&T Blackberry Curve 8300 Smartphone
My trackball moves right, left and up but does not go in or down (I can't open my mail). I tried alcohol and pushing it inside and rolling it up and down to no avail...I am in Paris with no help to seek! Thanks for answering me
Your trackball needs to be cleaned. You have two options.
1) You can send it in to be repaired, or
2) You can clean the trackball yourself.
To clean the trackball yourself:
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 each pieces came from and secure the trackball with the silver plastic ring that you removed in the first step.
Your BlackBerry’s trackball should be back working now.
If you found this information helpful, please give me a big thumbs-up when you rate my answer. Thank you.
