You may need to do a cleaning on it. Usually a dirt and dust get in there and block the little sensors.

Check out the following link for the procedure to clean your trackball and a video demonstration.

Your track ball may simply be dirty. Get a q-tip wet with rubbing alcohol and rub your track ball and repeat until the q-tip stays clean. Hope this helps!

My blackberry scrollball is not working. It canonly go left to right and vice verssa but can not move up or down


Have you tried cleaning it? The best way I clean mine is using a q-tip, dabbing it in rubbing alcohol, be sure to squeeze the excess out of the q-tip, and roll the wet q-tip all around the ball. Make sure you roll the ball so that all of it gets the alcohol on it. You can use the other side of the q-tip (dry side) to dry the ball.

Blackberry ball wont roll


If the track ball is stuck, there's something that's preventing it to roll. Cleaning it should be the solution, but you need to contact the manufacturer and have them clean it for you. Because that track ball is not easy to remove.

Thank you!

The ball won't scroll down


Pop the ring around the track ball out with a small blade or your finger nail. Three double prongs hold it in place (bottom and both sides, none on top). Turn device over and gently tap the back. Track ball will release once ring is removed. At this point you can view the track ball and see exactely what is causing the block. Clean if needed with q-tip or remove lint/debris/etc... Just did this with my 8830. Working perfectly now. - {would not scroll down at all prior to}

It might be a case where the track ball has some dirt or debris underneath it. First, turn the device off. Next, press down firmly on the track ball while at the same time rolling it in every direction. Hopefully that will knock loose any debris. Another tip to try is to wet your thumb with a little water and do the same thing.

If those two options don't work, you may try taking out the track ball and blowing out the slot with some compressed air. Below is a link that shows how to remove and clean the track ball:

First, turn off the device. While pressing down firmly on the track ball roll the ball in all directions.

If that doesn't work, then you may need to take out the track ball and blow it out with compressed air. The link below shows how to disassemble the track ball:
