Question about T-Mobile Sidekick ID Cellular Phone

3 Answers

Sidekick ID screen is compleatly white.

The screen on my sidekick id just went blank white today when I opened it. The only thing the phone does now is turn off and on but nothing else. All I can see is a blank white screen. What caused this and is there anyway to fix it without unscrewing anything?

This is the best method for repairng the white screen on a sidekick.

Sidekick has a white screen

What happens is the flex cable comes loose from the back of the lcd screen and needs to be reseated.

Hope that helps you all

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.

Sidekick ID blank screen


if you wiggle around the flexi cable in back of the screen it might flicker on again.
mine was faded but i was still able to see the screen .. i messed with it & it worked.
if you don't trust that way rotate the screen 90 degrees
unscrew it [MAKE SURE PHONE IS OFF!] your going to need a torx wrench, a really small 1.
take the screen off it & undo the back side of the screen & fix the cable that way.

My sidekick3 screen is blank


If your sidekick ID or Sidekick 3 screen is a blank white, then the lcd flex cable has come loose. It is a little difficult to repair but any one can do it. The worst that will happen if you try to repair yourself is that it will not work and you buy a replacement screen from ebay for 45 dollars.

Here are the detailed instructions. Just reinstall your lcd instead of putting a new one on.
