Default HELP: Trakcball doesn't 'enter' anymore! What to do?!

Please Login to Remove!

Hi!
Ok so I have a problem many of you already had.
The trackball of my Blackberry 8820 doesn't 'enter' anymore.. It scrolls perfectly in every direction but it hardly reacts when I push the button.
It's so annoying cause I just do not know what to do. People tell eachother to clean the trackball and the area underneath it, but I don't even know how to do that. I have tried to erase my battery, simcard and stuff like that and I also tried to scroll the trackball in different directions: nothing..
So, I do not have any warranty..

What should I do?!

Please help me!

Thank you so much,
Steven

Hmm yeah well I tried to clean, but that didn't help..
And I forgot a really important fact: the light underneath the trackball is off. I guess there is something totally wrong.. :(
Where can I get it fixed?!
