If the water damage is recent try taking it all apart and letting it thouroughly dry out, however if it has been out of commision for some time now then it's likely that there is nothing you can do. Maybe a new battery or something but I'm somehow doubting it. You could try taking it somewhere to have it looked at! Good luck!

if the screen is black all the time most likely is the ribbon, but if it is just the camera, the the steps to do is the ones on the post, i've fixed a few that way i fixed one that took like 10-12 times before it started working again. the sidekick 2 "skii" is known for the cam. to lock up on it.
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 you sidekick ID screen is white, you may be able to fix it. The flex cable connection cable on the lcd screen itself can come loose. Chance are if you tighten it, the screen will work again. I have had success with sidekick II and sidekick 3 with this same problem.
The following instruction for a sidekick 3 but it is the same for a sidekick ID. Just reseat your lcd instead of installing a new one.
