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.

My trackball on my Blackberry Dash won't move down, and sometimes won't move up or left. Would I beable to repair it my self, and if so how, or must I send it in for trackball repair?


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!

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.

My Microsoft Intellimouse Trackball rolls but the cursor doesn't


the circular disk that surrounds the trackball and has a little raised part can be turned to left - take it off and ball will fall out- inside are 2 tiny black rubber wheels one to left and one south of that- clean with alcohol on a cloth 9 not soaked) - I scrap them with my nail going across & you'll see gunk come off. Slso turn it upside down & tap it so all dirt inside falls out. wipe all around inside with cloth. Then clean the circle that holds ball. It has to have no dirt on inside area. Clean & dry ball- put back together and make sure to turn the circlular disc till it points to the dot on top. If that gets turned just a little off center it will cause ball to go all over. I've had mine for years & won't part with it. Can't stand chasing a regular mouse around the desk.

Model 64213 (not a wireless model) Trackball is not working smoothly - already tried cleaning it and still gets "stuck" especially moving left and right. Up and down works well.


This is because the wheels that move with he trackball are getting stuck.

Try cleaning the inside housing.(The part that holds that trackball) Mainly, the tiny wheels that grab the trackball. Normal use can build up a gummy buildup inside that can be easily rubbed off with a cloth. Since the housing is underneath the trackball, there can be a greater potential for lint, crumbs or anything else to get inside as well. Clen in there, empty out any debree and you will find ti moves much smoother.

alternatively, one of the tiny wheels could be damaged and is not rolling properly. Roll each one with your finger to see if you can feal anything rough or if the wheel is rubbing against something.
