Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

1 Answer

Rollerball Issues My rollerball sends the cursor to the left and right and even downward, but it doesnt scroll up. This is so aggravating. I've tried powering the phone off and bringing it back up to see if it reset itself. This was unsuccessful. Then I took out the battery for a while and replaced it. Same result. None. So, what should I do? What can I do other than getting a different freaking phone????

Try cleaning the trackball. Use a q-tip dipped in IPA or rubbing alcohol and use it to rotate the ball around a few times. Try a few times to make sure it is clean.

Rollerball downward movement does NOT register. Upward OK. Click OK.But cannot scroll downwards


Same problem I had. Remove the ring around the track ball assembly. and remove the track ball assembly frrom the phone. Clean the ball well with a swap and alcohol. Make sure you put the assembly back in the same way it came out. Put the ring back on and you should be good to go.

Use Rubbing Alchohol on a Q-tip to clean the roller. This happens to me all of the time and this always solves the problem

Blackberry Curve rollerball scrolls but will not select when push


Try removing the silver cover around the scroll ball, and remove the ball. There should be a little white square underneath it. If there is no white square, but a red square, then it could be water damage. I had the same issue with mine.

Blackberry rollerball


Hi guys I have the solution. I think all your trackballs are stuck. If you cant move it, take the silver ring off with a knife, take off the trackball and put rubbing alcohol on it wth a Q - tip until it works. Can some1 help me? My problem is titled My blackberry pearl wont load up.
