Where did you buy it from? Was it a new device?
If so, warranty should cover this.

you can also hold the mute button down so the BB goes into Standby Mode. then hold down the track wheele "hard" and move it left to right while pressing down hard on the track ball. You might just have dust under the ball, causing keyboard issues. If that dowa not worked I'd return it for an exchange.
