 Quote: Let h:H-->S be a diffeomorphism from H to the unit sphere S in H; it's known that such an h exists.

But not weakly continuous...

The closed unit ball of H is weakly compact and convex, so every weakly
continuous map has a fixed point. This doesn't solve the
original question, but does imply that f weakly continuous with no
fixed points cannot map any ball into itself.

Let h:H-->S be a diffeomorphism from H to the unit sphere S in H;
it's known that such an h exists. Let f = h^{-1} o A o h, where
A is the antipodal map on S, and there you are.
