The trackball is easily removed for cleaning by just pulling the trim ring around the trackball off with your fingernail. Remove the trackball and clean with alcohol. Reverse the process to clean.

The quickest and easiest way to clean it if you're not at home or dont have the time or space to take apart your blackberry trackball and do a thorough clean, is just this;
1 - Get any piece of flat, new paper.
2 - Turn your blackberry upside down (trackball side down)
3 - Slide your blackberry around in circles and over the stuck trackball part.
4 - Keep doing that until it clicks when it rolls, like normal.

Quick way to unstick.

It not a big deal, just use a sliced plastic straw to clean it. Lots of people have known this trick and they have proven it useful and effective. I found this trick at: http://www.unique-stuff.net/fixing_sticky_blackberry_trackball.html

If you still cant get your blackberry trackball roll, they also have some other tricks to try.

You would just have to use a pin and pull out carefully the ring around the trackball. then this is the most imp part take the trackball carefully. you can go here and see how the trackball looks like
http://www.asia.ru/en/ProductInfo/1810650.html
take a few pics of the trackball from the sides.
i made a mstake of not taking the pics of the trackball. from the side open the trackball carefully.be carefull because all the stuff inside are tiny. there shall be something very small stick kind of stuff
those are the rollers.clean the rollers it may have something stuck on it. remove those.now is the use of the pics you have taken. fix the trackball lookin at the pics.
put everything back to how was and your scroll will work perfectly
because i didnt take the pics i didnt know how to put it back and then i broke my trackball
Sorry for using so much 'carefully' in the solution

If need be, you can buy a replacement ball off eBay for about $4 with instruction on how to replace it.

Blackberry ball wont roll


If the track ball is stuck, there's something that's preventing it to roll. Cleaning it should be the solution, but you need to contact the manufacturer and have them clean it for you. Because that track ball is not easy to remove.

Thank you!

Ball on blackberry wont navigate up or down


Hi. BlackBerry smartphone trackball fails to roll in a particular direction because, debris is lodged in the trackball.
The trackball user interface found on certain BlackBerry smartphones is similar to the trackball used in a mouse in a desktop computer.
Using for certain period debris comes in contact with the trackball and affects the usability of the BlackBerry smartphone, rapidly roll the trackball up, down, left, or right to potentially correct the problem.
If rapidly rolling the trackball does not correct the problem, please contact your wireless service provider for support options.
I hope this information will be helpfull.

I can't scroll down with the rollerball


The balls on the blackberry's get clogged up with finger oil, skin, and all sorts of grime I think. But I fixed mine by shutting the phone down and then rubbing hard against the roll ball in each direction and pushing each time until the clicker under the roll ball clicked. You could also try alcohol.

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.

Blackberry rolling ball issues


Is the ball registering left right up and down and just not selecting? Sometimes the ball gets dirty. You can clean them most of the time. If its the actual select button, it sounds like it needs replacing. This repair runs 65.00 plus shipping. The actual button is a solder-on button so it requires more attention.

Blackberry rolling ball will not roll down


Cleaning the track ball on blackberry phones. Remove the metal ring then the ball mechanism remember how you removed it because it needs to go in the same way. You can also try removing the battery from phone taking a qtip with alcohol the higher the percentage of alcohol the better. and wiping and rolling the ball around even without removing it from the phone. this usually helps unless the ball is extremely dirty. Below are step by step ins for removing the ball. just follow the link

Trackball on Blackberry Curve not working properly


I found that removing the track ball and cleaning the contact and track ball with a cotton swab moistened with a small amount of isopropyl alcohol, it worked a 100 percent better when I returned the ball to the handset. DO NOT SATURATE THE BALL OR THE HANDSET WITH THE ALCOHOL!! ONLY USE A VERY SMALL AMOUNT!!!!
