SOURCE: sidekick 08 stuck on reboot screen, keeps rebooting

I know you think that T-Mobile customer care may be stupid, but there is a process when you call and they will get you to a Sidekick specific department that uses a troubleshooting flow to determine if the problem is fixable or if your phone just simply needs to be replaced.  Your phone has a 1 year warranty from the day you bought it and just in case it is extremely helpful to have the insurance added.  It is not fun having to shell out another $350.00 to replace something that you just bought if the warranty does not cover whatever the problem may be.  The deductible for a Sidekick is only $130.00 to replace.

19 inch slyvania tv/dvd combo turn on play button stays on and the the tv goes to red green yellow and blue screen and won't do anything else


I have been having just about the same problem with mine, i can watch the tv for about 20 min and then the dvd player comes on by itself then it goes to red, green, yellow, and black and white, i've tried resetting the dvd player to default but it hasn't helped mine.When i try to turn it off it automaticly comes back on so i have to unplug it.If i find a way to make mine work right i will send you a message to let you know so you can try it on yours. I've had mine just over a year and i don't have a warrenty anymore.

My side-kick LX will not turn on


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

The sidekick Lx


You can try this. It works on Sidekick 3's

1. at the same time hold the menu button (top left) and the jump button (bottom left)
2. This will bring you to the emergency screen (it gives you the option to make an emergency call)
3. Open to the keypad and hold in the menu+shift+q buttons at the same time.
4. The phone will reset and clear/unlock the security code

If that doesn't work you can trya Master Reset

1. Remove the battery and the SIM card from the device.
2. Flip the sidekick open; press and hold the letter 'r' on the keypad.
3. While holding the letter 'r', place the battery back in the device. DO NOT INSERT THE SIM CARD YET.
4. The sidekick will restart itself twice. Please make sure not to let the letter 'r' go until it has fully rebooted.
5. Once it has fully rebooted, remove the battery, re-insert the SIM card and battery and power up the device.
6. Once the device has fully rebooted, all prior information should be erased from the device and it should be restored back to the default factoy settings.
