BlackBerry 8130 Camera problem!

This is the second Blackbery 8130 I have had with the same problem! When I go to the camera, the trackball with not respond to the zoom in and out feature! It worked fine when I first received the phones but after a couple of weeks it no longer has the 1x to 5x zoom feature! Anyone else having this problem? Any suggestions?

    Taking the battery out and putting it back in solved the problem! Something the tech's at the Verizon store, were I purchased it! Could not seem to do! It was still under the 30 day return policy so they just replaced it. And needlessly I might add! Thanks for your assistance! You are number one in my book!

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.

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

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

Camera won't zoom in or out


It is a glitch but turning your unit off and removing the battery for a few seconds will reset the camera. This is how I fix the problem with mine.
