    Mr.Trackball here!
    Once you've gotten it out, spray it thoroughly with Windex. Depress and roll it around every which way for a minute or two. Then flex each roller away from the assembly slightly by inserting a fingernail. Let it dry 30 min. Repeat if necessary. This will fix it.
    Good to have a backup, in case it simply wears out. Folks at link below have them for $12.99, shipped here in the U.S. Let us know how your upgrade goes, and if you need help, PIN me

    Alright it is updating now. Another quick question.

    I got my Pearl in August of 07 before video was available to be used on the blackberry's. I know it's a long shot but this update won't make it so I can record video, will it? That'd take a whole hardware update wouldn't it?

    Sorry for all the questions lol.
    (:

    Oh, I never took the rollers off when I cleaned it. How do you do that?

    I just took the track ball out & cleaned behind it.

    Instructions weren't to take rollers off. Flex them slightly by inserting fingernail between them and the assembly

    Now I see you were referring to Cowboy's link, which calls for the complete disassembly of the unit. Follow my instructions for simple cleaning. It works. The site I linked you to for replacement also has simple and extensive cleaning instructions

    Hey guys, sorry for the late reply, I had work to go to.

    I got the update & viewing videos on YouTube is cool and should add a lot to my Blackberry but I have found a couple of problems with the new Software Update.

    A) The red light at the top right of my phone stays on for extensive periods of time (usually until I reboot the phone, but even then it comes back on when I get a message). Any fix?

    B) I am getting an error message when trying to view some YouTube videos. Has anyone heard of this problem before?

    C) It looks like the update didn't fix my track ball so I am going to have to clean it. I will check out the instructions you gave me BerryAdict.
    (:

    I cleaned my trackball but it seems to have made it worse. I am going to retry the windex thing.
