If your backlight is dead, then you need to replace the lcd screen assy. They run about 30 dollars on ebay and are easy to change.

Screen not working


Lisa-

I am sorry to hear that the new sidekick 3 is not working for your son.

Is the screen white, blank, or just hard to see?

If white, then the flex cable needs to be reseated.

If dark blank, then reseat the lcd assy itself and see if it works

If hard to see the screen, then the backlight is dead. A new screen is needed for that.

I hope that helps

Backlight on sidekick 3


Because your screen is broken and that can only be fixed if you have it replaced.

Sidkeick 3 backlight


Have you tried checking the Battery and Display settings from the main screen Settings menu? There is an option to enable or disable the backlight, as well as set the brightness.

There is also a setting called "Use ambient light sensor", which sets the backlight and keyboard light to only turn on if it is dark when you are using it.

Screen light wont turn on


The problem may lie in the settings-->System-->Backlight-->Battery Power--> Make sure you check "Turn on backlight when a button is pressed...." I believe this is a firmware bug. Do the same for external power.
