Track ball requires multiple press to get it to do anything


Hi, to change the trackball or trackpad sensitivity of the BlackBerry smartphone, complete the following steps:
1) On the Home screen, go to Options > Screen/Keyboard.
2) In the Trackball or Trackpad section, click Horizontal Sensitivity or Vertical Sensitivity to change the sensitivity level.
3) Press the Menu key and select Save. The new sensitivity levels are saved.
A higher sensitivity number indicates a higher sensitivity level for the trackball or trackpad.
The trackball user interface found on certain BlackBerry smartphones is similar to the trackball used in a mouse in conjunction with a desktop computer.
In the event 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.
Try to re-install the BlackBerry Device Software using the application loader tool, before you re-install the software please back up the BlackBerry smartphone data.I hope this information will be helpful to you

My blackberry world edition's trackball suddenly started selecting things as if I pressed the trackball even though I haven't. If I open email it clicks the links in it as I scroll past and reply pops up...


You might have one of three things wrong with your blackberry 1. something is stuck down there like a peice of plastic causing the button to seem like its being pressed all the time or 2. there could be water damage in there thats if you bring your phone into the bathroom with you while taking showers humidity is like cancer to phones it might not show up right away but it can happen 3. someone might of pushed the trackball so hard that it dented the button in this case i would take it in to get repaired. If it is one of the other two it should be an easy fix you can check for either one of these problems underneath the trackball by removing the ring that is around the trackball you can do this by carefully prying around it off then you should be able to drop the trackball itself right out of the phone aswell as any thing stuck in there or if there is water damage or any water down there I suggest you turn the phone off as soon as possible to prevent any further damage then I would just leave the phone in a nice dry place to get rid of the water then the trackball should work again same thing goes for removing anything that might be stuck down there after that is all done with you should be able to reassemble it remember the ring around the trackball only goes in one way so do force it or you risk breaking it.

Cheers,

I lost my trackball for my blackberry is there anyway i can use my phone without it


The Blackberry cannot be used without a trackball as this is the only form of direction input. However, I can replace the trackball for you. Please email me at IGcomputerservices@gmail.com for more information.

Multiple Blackberry problems on the same phone! Please help!


I think the easiest way to resolve as many of these issues is by resetting your blackberry.

Hold down ALT+RIGHT SHIFT(CAP)+DELETE keys - I'm not 100% sure this works on your model but it is soft reset.

Go into Options, then select Security Options, then select General Settings, then activate the BlackBerry menu and select the option to wipe the device - Will reset all your personalised settings to default

The tracking ball rotates but it does not move over the icons on the left side. Is there anything I can do to fix this?


Depending on how comfortable you are with removing the trackball it's not hard to fix... you may have some dirt or grit interfering with the trackball and/or sensors. Take a small screwdriver or blade and gently pop the silver ring around the trackball off. This will free the actual trackball housing. Use an old toothbrush to clean everything. I also soaked the trackball in a little rubbing alcohol. Just make sure it is completely dry before reassembling. If that doesn't work you can purchase replacement trackballs from places like crackberry.com.

My trackball is stuck down.


Good evening!
My Blackberry does the exact same thing. The trackball will scroll around, and it will select what I wish for it to select but it won't actually "click" or move into the phone.
The phone itself has a built in mechanism underneath, near the trackball and is very fragile and if it is broken, the pushing in or "click" will not occur anymore.
Unfortunately this mechanism is not replaceable without taking apart the phone itself. You can contact your service provider for a replacement, but I, and many others, are just living with the problem.
Hope this helps you out!
