    It worked for me too.
    First it would not scroll to the right, then to the top.
    The right scroll worked by itslef after a while. I didn't realize that it could be dust.

    So I guess I will have to keep it clean.

    Thanks everybody here for sharing there experience.

    Actually mine did the same thing.. I end up cleaning using a sheet of paper, and passing it around the trackball, and it works perfectly now..
    Lots of stuff were stuck in there....

    Re: blackberry pearl 8100 trackball not rolling down

    Heres the solution to the trackball not scrolling down. The silver ring which covers the trackball can easily be removed if you use a small screwdriver to lift it at the outer side of the ring. Be careful here! Like you should be during the whole process as all parts have very small plastic nipple which can break very easy. When the silver plastic ring is removed you will see the inner trackball component which can be removed completely. Before doing this you should carefully remove the silver metal ring that holds the trackball component in its position. The trackball component itself can also be carved. For every direction the ball can roll to you’ll find a sensor wheel. Those wheels are mostly carrying some gunk you should clean them.When you pull out the trackball assembly clean it using WD-40.
    Just spray some WD-40 on a paper towel and gently wipe it - I did this and it worked instantly.
    Be careful the components are very small and very fragile. Keep your eyes open for small parts Once this is done put everything back together to the place the pieces came from and secure the trackball with the silver plastic ring you removed in the first step. Your BlackBerry’s trackball should be back working now.
    Good Luck - Zero Z

    EDIT: Also no need for WD-40

    That happened to me and I had to take the trackball apart and found dirt and grime wrapped around the rollers. But I definitely don't recommend this if you have a warranty and if your sketchy on working on teeny things.

    IF your carrier is Sprint like it says in your profile, you will have to pay 20 bucks to unlock it.

    Also 8100s are GSM and don't work on CDMA networks which Sprint/Verizon are.
