    my sidekick lx gave me problem so i put it down for a while and i really missed it so i decided to try it agian.It is plugged in,the orange light comes on, the warning about low battery is there and the lil chargin icon in the corner is moving. It has been charging and there is no progress on it coming to life. When i turn it on the lil square icon comes on and then it goes directly to the chargin warning...What is the problem here??...And yeah the green light just came on ..where did that come from??

Try this, though is used for when the device is randomly rebooting aswell, it might help you to force your Sidekick to come back on:

  1. Check the device's battery level for at least two bars of strength.
  2. If the battery level is low, charge the battery.
  3. If the issue is not resolved, remove the back cover.
  4. Remove the battery.
  5. Wait 10 seconds.
  6. Press and hold the W key.
  7. While pressing down the W key, re-insert the battery.
    • The device restarts and after approximately 15 seconds, the 'Recovery' screen appears.

  8. Select the desired language.
  9. Select Reboot to restart the device.
  10. Your Sidekick should go back to the main screen as normal. Good luck

My side kick lx track ball is messed


this can be and is usually caused by dirt or sweat in the track ball that has caused damage to the phone the only cure i can think of besides returning the phone for a new one or taking it to a cellular repair store is to open the phone and try to clean out the area by and around the track ball keep in mind you risk further damaging the phone if u take this path
