If the backlight is burned out, you need to put a new lcd screen in.

It is fairly easy to do yourself and costs about 25 dollars.

Here is a guide:

and here is a link to the Sidekck 3 lcd screens

Hope that helps you out.

To turn on the backlight on the keyboard follow the steps below. The keyboard backlight LED can be accessed through either the Quickset Utility or Windows Mobility Center depending on the installed application.Once this is open click on the Keyboard Backlighting section.

My sidekick backlight


Is it the LCD back light? If so, it probably burned out. Did the phone get wet recently? That is usally the main cause.

You can get a replacement screen on ebay for about 40-50 dollars. Look for ones that come with the instructions and screwdriver. You will need a T6 Torx Driver.
