So if the sidekick has suffered a drop or some other type of trauma, the cable for the lcd screen can come loose causing a white screen. Try the following guide to repair a white screen:

Fix a White LCD Screen on Sidekick 3

If it doesn't work, you can replace the Sidekick 3 screen assembly fairly easily. A new LCD assembly runs about 30 dollars from ebay. Here is a guide for that:

and here is a link to the screens on ebay:

Hope that helps

You need to reseat the LCD cable. More than likely it has come loose in the back of the LCD

My sidekick wont get service


Maybe it's because you're phone might off turned off and you didn't know. Because, if a sidekick turns off, normally when it comes back on everything is gone.

Sidekick 3 Charging Question


I can tell you the sidekick 3 will not operate properly with out a back cover. In fact, if you remove the rear cover while powered on, it will post a warning message on the screen.
Because you tested and successfully operated the phone with out complication with a back installed I fell confident you should have have any problem with the phone when your back cover arrives.


Good Luck

Powers on, Controller wont connect, nothing shows up


switch the hard switch off in the back of the ps3. unplug power cord... press and hold power button located on the front f the ps3 for approx 10 secs, then let it sit for a few, then hook it back up and turn the hard switch back on and try to power it back up.

I have had this happen once before but it did return to normal.
