There's never been a good way to clean the trackball. There were some threads with disassembly instructions but most of the time disassembly is not required. I still don't know why the pics disappeared. Likely the pictures were removed from the site they were posted at.

I think I know the one you are talking about and indeed the pictures were gone. I am mobile right now but try searching for "clean blackberry trackball" on Google to see if you get any results. Otherwise someone else here may post a different link.

Are you trying to make it white again? You can't. Are you trying to get dust/lint out of it...blow canned air in it. if it quit rolling in one direction just push down and roll in the direction it doesn't work.

I have just written a guide with pictures, about how to clean the trackball.
And have done this many times. I personally I think the guide is good. Maybe my English is crappy. But at least you have pictures.

the sad part is that the word file is about 25mb
and the .pdf is 6mb. so cant upload at this forum....

You can create a new thread and copy/paste the text and attach the images. I am sure this would make many people happy.
