If it still turns on, than the problem is the screen. Really, the only thing you can do is replace it. You can buy a new screen on ebay, and get a tool too. Just take out the screws on the metal flip part(you need a special tool), and then detach the ribbon very carefully. You can take out the Phillips screws on the screen cover to replace the screen only or just replace the whole thing with the cover already on.

Sound problems

this same thing happened to me. i only had my sidekick for 4 months, but along with the sound (i would call people and hear them say helloooo helloooo??? but they couldnt hear anything i said) went the main backliglht.
when you sidekicks screen is open try pulling it towards you and look where the rotator is...there should be a little green or white square...if its red that means you have water damage which is what happened to me. its realllly succeptible to water, even steam will get you.
but if thats not the problem then take it to a tmobile store and hopefully your warrantyw will help

Sidekick II

It's on of two things.

They screen cable may have come loose. Has she dropped it recently?

The second may be that the LCD has died altogther.

You can disassemble and check to see if the cable is firmly in place.

You will need a T6 torx driver or a small flat tip screwdriver that you can fit into the torx slot.

If the cable is secure, a new LCD should fix the issue. They run about 40 dollars on ebay.
