Rub the trackball in a circular motion until you feel the trackball running in all directions smoothly.

With the Blackberry facing down, only a film of alcohol is carried to the "gunky" rollers by the trackball.

Good Luck!
This worked for me! (With a Blackberry Curve 8320 whose problem was the track ball had stopped being able to cursor down.)
