Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

Camera won't zoom in

All of a sudden my camera won't zoom in anymore. I tried using the rollerball and the volume keys but nothing happens. It worked 2 days ago and now it just stopped working. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks...

    Yes this is correct. It's a software change so it needs to reconnect with the server to download the new software. This can be done by taking out the battery while turned on, like someone already said. When it powers back on the camera will work. Thanks for all the help...

Mike,

I don't think it is your BB. Mine too has stopped zooming when it worked fine last week.

Do you know if BB did an auto update to the software. I am not aware of any.

Thanks guys! I was about to take my BB in for service b/c of this! Glad I found your solution online...worked like a charm! I had tried turning my phone off/on, but didn't think of a battery pull.

Mine just stopped working a couple of days ago too. I took the battery out and waited a little bit and it fixed it.

Mine did the same. To fix:
With phone turned on remove battery. Wait 30 seconds. The put battery in
This forces a reset

My rollerball won't click.


I'm having the same problem with this. One of my friends and a Att worker have suggested that replacing the Rollerball with a new one which can be bought off Ebay for 5 or 6 bucks can fix the problem. If that does't work then check to see if water damage has taken place, if any moisture has gotten to the phone it may be that. Other then replacing the rollerball i have no other solution.

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

I was informed that if you take your battery out while it was on then it will work when you put in back in after a few minutes. I Just tried it like 2 min. ago and they were right.
