My blackberry won't let me type A, sometimes when i slide the trackball up it shows symbols. The trackball won't go up or down in texts and blackberry messenger. It just stopped working randomly and I used...

I a suggesting cleaning your trackball, the steps and information along with pictures will be provided below. I followed these same steps and mine works fine. Trackballs can easily accumilate dirt and dust over any period of time.

First, you'll have to use the screwdriver to remove the ring from the outside of the trackball. I'd recommend doing this from the top, since it's the only part of the wheel that doesn't have a prong (you'll see what I mean when you pull it out). Once that is loose, you'll be able to take the trackball unit out as well. The set should look like this:
Now we want to concern ourselves with the trackball unit. First, wet your finger and run it across the trackball to pick up any residue which might be sticking to it. Next, you'll notice there are four black wheels on each corner of the unit. Remove them one by one, removing any dust or buildup with your fingertips. I'd recommend not using water here. Just something about water and BlackBerry that makes me uneasy.
Finally, we'll look back to the unit, where you'll see a copper sensor where the trackball used to be. Wipe this gently with the rag. This is a very fragile and very sensitive part. If you treat it roughly, it will break and you'll have a worse problem than a dirty and clogged trackball.
Finally, drop the trackball unit back into the crevice, and pop the ring back on, prongs facing left, right, and down. Voila! Should be good as new. And now you don't have to send your BlackBerry to IT, or out for repair. Now if this does not work, you can order a replacement trackball from ebay for less than 3 dollars and just use the examples above to install it.

I dropped my Blackberry in a puddle of water and its not working. What can I do?

Remove the battery, turn the unit on it's back and allow any water to work its way out. Let the unit sit for a day or so. If you can't wait that long, take a blow dryer to it and blow out any water. When the unit appears to be completly dry, insert the battery and see if it boots up. If it doesn't, it may not be completely dry yet.

The 7290 is a pretty versatile unit. I dropped mine in a lake twice on the same camping trip. Both times I immediately removed the battery, laid it out on a rock and let the sun dry it. It booted up fine both times.

Phone is dead after drop into water

Remove the battery and allow the unit to dry thourouhly. Take a hair dryer to it if need be. Once dry, reinsert the battery. The unit should boot up. Water doesn't tend to cause any lasting damage. Pop (soda) or wine or anything that is sugary will fry the unit though. Good-luck.

Won't charge even though Green light is on and connects to computer. Just put a new battery in.

Yes, possibly a cracked pc board if the unit was dropped. But check to make sure that the charging unit's connector is clean as well as the unit to be charged. I had a problem with my wireless phone and a PDA not charging because of dirty contacts. I got to the contacts using a long Q-tip moisten with Isopropyl alcohol and scrubbed them clean. I now do it about twice a year. No problems since then.

Dropped Blackberry 8100 in water now wont turn on...

Get some ipa [isopropanol] leave phone submerged in same for a few hours [with battery removed] then remove from ipa, leave for 24 - 48 hrs as long as you can and it should come back to life. All the components in your phone are waterproof so the ipa will eliminate the moisture and should make you happy again.

My Blackberry Curve

Device cuts off. Due to whats called battery memory Device thinks battery is spent. does not realize that it has additional capacity. This is due to recharging before battery is fully discharged ie in the red zone. Solution. install a new battery. it worked never had the problem again.

Phone got wet

I had a very similar problem when I dropped my phone in a mudpuddle. I could not get it to work at all and I think the connector that is used by the hotsync cable was shorted with muddy water because it kept trying to rngage the hotsync operation even without a cable.

I disassembled the phone as much as possible and got some distilled water and rinsed the unit very thoroughly It is important to use distilled water because distilled water has all of the mineral content removed and is non conductive.

After that, you can dry the unit with a hair dryer, but it is unlikely you will be able to get the water out of the phone that way very effectively. I had access to an oven that had accurate controls and set it at 180 degrees and left the phone in there for several hours.

When I reassembled and turned it on, everything worked fine again. The only thing I noticed was that the backlight was less uniform than before. I think that was because of some of the contaminants from the mudpuddle that I could not rinse free. It is barely noticeable, and I have been runnig great for 6 months since.

I hope this helps...
