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. http://www.instructables.com/id/Sidekick-II-disassembly/

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.
