1. power off the blackberry
2. clean the trackball of dirt that could possibly build up

3. push the trackball with more than necessary force in the direction in which in won't scroll until the movements seem similar to those of the directions that are still functional.
4. If its regained some movement then with the blackberry on repeat the process in a text message and try to scroll through it until it works.

How long have you been using that trackball?

I recommend you replace the trackball because based on what you said it seems it has done its time is now worn

My ball wont go left or right. only up & down. what do i need to do?


Most trackball movement problems can be rectified by cleaning the trackball. Try the following steps to see if it helps tp resolve the issue you are having;

1) Turn the unit off, open the back cover and pull the battery out,
2) Take a paper towel, dampen it with water...nothing else, making sure that the towel is only damp and not soaking wet,
3) Rub the damp paper towel on the trackball, over and over, making sure to rub up, down, side-to-side and every which way. This should clean the trackball and remove whatever is causing it to not move smoothly.
4) Wait a minute or two and replace the battery and cover. Once the unit has rebooted, try moving the trackball again. It should be better.

Cheers!

My trackball moves up and down but not to the right.


You can try cleaning it, but it's very easy to break in the process (or sometimes it's a short lived fix.) The easiest and cheapest fix is to get a new trackball. It's really easy to replace yourself, and you'll be so happy when it's back to moving in all directions!

Good luck!

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.

Bb8800 the pearl/cursor does not scroll up


This is usally caused by the trackball getting dirty.

Use a q-tip dipped in IPA and clean it. Roll the trackball around and swab the q-tip around to clean.

If cleaning fails then you will need to replace the Blackberry trackball.

Check the following link on instructions on how to do that.
