Have you tried cleaning the trackball? If you keep the phone in your pocket a lot, it might have accumulated a lot of lint and dust.

I will try searching for the post with instructions but you need to remove the trackball and the plastic covering the contact underneath with alcohol and then replace then plastic. You most likely have corrosion between the contact and the circuit board.
