    first thing i would try is some canned air and blow it out. sounds like trash in it.

    If I may add to the excellent suggestions above, taking apart the trackball assembly is rarely, if ever, necessary or undertaken.
    Here is a link that will outline cleaning and replacement:

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~You can also try pushing down and rolling the trackball. It has worked for me. But if it happens once it will start to happen more often. I bought a replacement at www.blackberrytrackballs.com for 12.95. Don't wait for it to quit working.
