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 trackball works on my blackberry and i recieve calls but it seems like my keyboard is locked i cant pick up calls or select options


Have your keypad checked out, I used to fix alot of blackberries and they suffered from defective keyboards, this seems to be a common problem with them. Replace the keypad under the keyboard, swap out your phone if you have insurance.

Good luck.

Trackball on my blackberry 8320 will not move to the left. have replace the trackball but the problem still exist


no need to replace or disassemble the blackberry trackball. You can do it from outside of blackberry. Just follow the cleaning trick at http://www.unique-stuff.co.cc/fixing_sticky_blackberry_trackball.html

Very recommended..

My trackball zoom on my camera is not working anymore?


The same problem with me, i do a hard reset and it is fixed, simple isnt it?

To do the hard reset, just remove the battery for 1-2 minutes and restart the phone. This will reset the camera firmware to its factory default.

Got my trackball a bit wet and now wont work, what should i do?


You might have damaged some circuitry, but can try cleaning the trackball with alcohol and a Q-Tip. You need to roll the ball around with the alcohol-soaked Q-Tip, then let it try. This will have the nice side effect of helping drive off any leftover water, too.

My blackberry pearl trackball doesnt work


Take it where you bought it and try to get it replaced, saying it's defective. Hopefully you're under warranty, unlike myself who has a **** blackberry who's radio keeps turning off randomly and won't make or recieve calls without having to manually reconnect 'mobile network' hundreds of times a day. Your phone must have got really wet though because buttons and **** don't ******* unless exposed to extremly wet conditions (trust me, I know). I'd like an iphone over this **** for damn sure but i'm stuck with any annoying and fairly useless phone for now.

Curve 8330 has a trackball issue


Good evening!
Removing (or replacing) the trackball on the Blackberry phone is very easy.
Shut off your blackberry phone (I would take out the battery).
Quickly examine the trackball itself on your phone. Use something with a small tip, like a screwdriver (NOT A KNIFE! Could damage the mechanism), and slide it underneath the silver ring around the ball. Gently lift up, might also want to try lifting both sides to help lift it off.
Once off, set aside the silver ring. You should now see the trackball mechanism, to remove it, simply flip the phone over and it should just fall out (can also tap it a few times which helps). The mechanism is simply held in magnetically.
You should now be able to see where the trackball was. You can now take a cotton swab with a small amount of rubbing alcohol and clean around in that area. If you examine, you will see small rollers around the trackball, you can also clean these. 
This is the best way to clean the trackball. If all else fails you can replace the trackball. You can order one off amazon, they are very cheap, ranging from $2-10.  
To put in the trackball, simply reverse the steps. The trackball device only goes in 2 ways, if it simply doesnt fit, turn it. It requires minimal force to put it back in. To put the silver ring back in, just match up the 3 little clips and gently push it back in.
Put the battery back in and give it a test.
Hope this helps!

I have blackberry pearl and the white roller does not move downwords


I had the same problem and after being told that the sensor was more than likely fried and that I could "upgrade" with the purchase of a new phone I tried to "clean" the sensor myself. I used a can of "Dust Off" )compressed air that you use to clean your keyboard) - shooting the keyboard of the phone from various angles and it did the trick. Good luck!
