Hi. BlackBerry smartphone trackball fails to roll in a particular direction because, debris is lodged in the trackball.
The trackball user interface found on certain BlackBerry smartphones is similar to the trackball used in a mouse in a desktop computer.
Using for certain period 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.
I hope this information will be helpfull.

My blackberry scroll bar is malfunctioning - sometimes I cannot get it to scroll up and down only scrolls side to side.


You can try removing the scroll ball and cleaning it, that could be the reason why it wont scroll up and down.

My roller ball does not scroll down, it goes all other directions but down, it makes it so hard for me to navigate.


take the roller ball out by poping out the silver ring at the top and look on the bottom of the ball and make sure that all of the black rollers will roll and if not clean them.

The ball won't scroll down


Have you removed the ball at any time? If it is put back in wrong, it could cause this. If not, the ball assembly itself might be bad. You can find them fairly cheap on eBay.

Blackberry rolling ball issues


Is the ball registering left right up and down and just not selecting? Sometimes the ball gets dirty. You can clean them most of the time. If its the actual select button, it sounds like it needs replacing. This repair runs 65.00 plus shipping. The actual button is a solder-on button so it requires more attention.

Blackberry rolling ball will not roll down


Cleaning the track ball on blackberry phones. Remove the metal ring then the ball mechanism remember how you removed it because it needs to go in the same way. You can also try removing the battery from phone taking a qtip with alcohol the higher the percentage of alcohol the better. and wiping and rolling the ball around even without removing it from the phone. this usually helps unless the ball is extremely dirty. Below are step by step ins for removing the ball. just follow the link

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}
