Flip the LCD screen open, look on the backside of lcd assy, in the top center is where the magnet goes. You will need to take the front lcd cover off to put it back on.

Swivel doesn't shut. black piece in the way?


I believe its the flex cable, you''d have to ask expert(if you arent familiar with the sidekick) and loosen you flex cable. I bieleve it tightens wen it tries to flip. If its not that, comment baq with more detail

My sidekick id


Try a master reset.

1. Remove the battery and the SIM card from the device.
2. Flip the sidekick open; press and hold the letter 'r' on the keypad.
3. While holding the letter 'r', place the battery back in the device. DO NOT INSERT THE SIM CARD YET.
4. The sidekick will restart itself twice. Please make sure not to let the letter 'r' go until it has fully rebooted.
5. Once it has fully rebooted, remove the battery, re-insert the SIM card and battery and power up the device.
6. Once the device has fully rebooted, all prior information should be erased from the device and it should be restored back to the default factoy settings.
