Sidekick Display Issues!

My Sidekick just displays a blank screen (when you don't use it for a while) and the trackball keeps blinking green. I called it to see if it would trigger the display, but all it did was light up the phone icon buttons. Even after calling, the trackball keeps blinking green. Help?

The trackball will blink green when the sidekick is in sleep mode, to let you know that it is still on just saving battery. I personally think it gets pretty annoying after awhile.. Also if it blinks blue while in sleep mode it means you have a new text, email, alert, etc. The only time the trackball doesnt blink green is when you are using it. Hope this helped!

Lexmark C534dn has a blank display and a red light. How do I get the display back and a green ready light?


If display is blank you likely have a bad display or some other problem that will require replacements parts. Keep in mind that on Lexmarks the control panels are keyed to the formatter so you cannot just get a used panel from another printer, you must purchase a new one.

Sidekick 3 problems


Antonio-

You may be able to fix many of those things yourself. The trackball proabaly just needs to be clean. Does the LCD have a white screen when it is on? The Camera, well that may take some work.

For the white screen check out here: http://www.repairmysidekick.org/Fix-Sidekick-White-LCD-Screen

If it is not white, a new lcd can be had for 45 dollars on ebay.
they are easy to replace.

replacement of the Sidekick 3 LCD flip screen.

To clean your track ball, follow these instructions:

1: Take a deep breath and blow on the trackball area, rotate and do it again. This may blow any particles block the sensors.
2: This requires a Q-tip and some alcohol. Turn off your sidekick, wet the end of the q-tip, and gently clean the trackball while rotating. Be careful not to get the alcohol on anything but the trackball. Let dry for a minute and try it out. If this doesn’t work then try again.

No Display


I have the same problem - the blank/black screen and blinking green power light. The speakers on the monitor work (I can hear the start-up sound that Windows makes), but the screen is blank. We bought the monitor on Halloween Night 2003 at Best Buy and had zero problems to date...except for last night. The Best Buy gang told me this afternoon that it was an internal hardware issue. I called the manufacturer and the tech guy confirmed the problem by saying he was almost positive it was the internal "inverter board" - which means you have to send it in to get it fixed. I guess this is a fairly common problem with these monitors by the way he made it sound. So, that's a $70.00 deal (service, parts, labor, and shipping back to your house) - that is, if there are no other issues with the screen itself - then the cost goes up. So by the time you pay to send it to them and then pay them to fix the board - it looks like you're better off buying a new flat panel monitor. Yikes. Anybody else with any suggestions - other than buy a new one? Thanks!!
