Sidekick 3 Buttons falling off!

The X button, and the GO BACK button are about to fall off of my Sidekick 3. They are the ones above and below the call and hang up buttons. Can they be replaced somewhat easily, and if so, where in the world can i find them? All the Tmobile stores in my area do not carry replacement parts, they just want to sell me a new phone.

The best way to replace the missing buttons on your sidekick 3 is to get a new front housing. You can buy them on ebay for about 15 dollars. It is hard to find the buttons themselves as they are really a pain to take off and replace.

Here is link for the front housings with buttons:

Paper jam on HP C4580 - freed jam but the printer makes a strange clicking noise on pressing the reset button and will not clear!


There seem to be a physical obstruction like a foreig object in the paper pathway.
Try to turn the printer upside down ad shake it.
That is after removing all the paper and securing any movable parts. Don't worry about the ink. they won't fall out.
If you give it a shake you may hear the object rattling.
If you are lucky it will also fall out.
After it fall out keep shaking to see if ther are other objects.
If not you may need to use a small flashlight to examine it.
the common objects are paper clips,
coins buttons and children's krayons. But just about any-ting that is stored above the printer is likely to fall in the paper way.
Goog luck.

My sidekick 3! help me!


-.-
make sure your sidekick 3 is turned off completely then take the battery, sim card, and memory card out and lays them on the towel so they can get dries as well place your sidekick 3 in a big bowel with white rice in so they can absorb the wettness off of it and leave them all stay there for overnight or 2 days to let them dries and after 2 days up, put everything back in and turn your sidekick on and see if its worked again.
good luck.
p.s if its not working, then your sol and started to save up some money once again. or you can try and sell it for repair and parts on ebay or another websites and use that money to get yourself another sidekick 3 or wait for a new sidekick to come out that has been talking about it for a while is called a sidekick blade if you havent already heard about it. so yeah. its suppposed to be launch around in summer or fall then use that money for it, if you perfers that or you can go ahead and find a cheaper sidekick 3 around on ebay or you can check on CL(craiglist) to see if they have some with in a good condition for cheap. but, also make sure theyre not scam you for money or give you a fake advertise about it that they dont really have it. (just give you a lil heads up).
:]

Sidekick 3 Problem


okay i have a sidekick 3 as well and what you need to do is put the paper clip in the hole again and hold the power button at the same time for approximately 3 seconds. This is a hard reset. Now the bad part is that this will reset all of your data back to factory default. If you need further assistance or this does not work click the ask me button next to my name and we can work on it from there. Thanks.

if the light indicates but its not charging. one other thing you can do is a soft reset.take out your SIM card and batter for 30 seconds then replace the SIM card, and hold on to the R button and at the same time replace your battery, your phone should turn on and restart twice. but it will come on.
