I had the same problem. Sometimes its just junk...you can use a keyboard spray cleaner or sometimes it can be some scripting prob....wipe the handheld l

Probably lint or dirt ont he trackball. Do you carry it in your pocket?

Turn off the BB. Press the trackball and roll it in all directions several times.

Take a q-tip dipped in alcohol and clean the ball.

Press and hold the ball in and blow some canned air around it.

Turn it back on and it should work.

Use the case!

Not the most well written DIY, but it'll work!
