There is a little workaround... When you're in e-mail, you can touch "t" to go to the top of the list, the spacebar to go down a page at a time, and "b" to go to the bottom of the list. It seems to work on other pages as well, at least sometimes. That has helped me while I figure out what's really wrong with it.

Shortly before my rollerball stopped rolling up, it turned a dark red color when it's not illuminated; it has kind of a pale pink glow when it's lit up. I'm still digging around on for info on this, but maybe this will help in the meantime with yours.

Sorry there is no way to do that without replacing the trackball or have the old trackball cleaned.

SOURCE: roller ball on blackberry won't work

Was it Like it when you bought it?? If not, then its probably broken.. it happens a lot with rollerballs.. if you take it back to the shop you bought it from they will probably send it away to be fixed.

Open the mouse. (Slide the panel on the bottom that surrounds the ball, and pull the ball out. Clean the ball and the rollers inside the mouse with rubbing alcohol. Remove all debris, hair, lint, etc.

My roller ball does not scroll down, it goes all other directions but down, it makes it so hard for me to navigate.


take the roller ball out by poping out the silver ring at the top and look on the bottom of the ball and make sure that all of the black rollers will roll and if not clean them.

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.

Roller ball


All you have to do is take a sheet of paper with print on it. Take the battery out of you phone. Next do a figure eight motion with the ball side down on the phone about 10 times. There is something on the ink on the paper that will make this work again. good luck

8100 rollerball wont scroll down


sounds like the ball is gummed up.. there are several sites that will show, with pics, how to remove the ball assembly and tear it apart to clean it... but be careful.. it is not as easy as it looks.. i ended up buying a new ball off of ebay for under $12 shipped.. so i suggest that route

Roller ball will not work down.


Cleaning the roller ball with a lint free cloth seems to work pretty well. Lock the hand held and then just go to town on the roller ball with the lint free cloth.
