My blackberry has problem with rollerball not responding when pressed

The balls get clogged with grease and skin from your finger over time. turn off the blackberry or pull the battery. Get rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab and rub the top of the ball getting off as much of the black as you can. Rotate it slightly and do the same until the entire ball is done. Then push quickly upward against the ball, downward, left, and then right several times in each direction.

Replace the battery, start the phone, and see how it works.

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. Try for your blackberry repair needs!
