More than likely, the trackball on your Side LX is really dirty. Overtime, dirt and grime gets in between the ball and the sensors.

It is really easy to clean it, you will need q-tips and IPA alcohol.

Hi,
reasons of that is because its dirty which is it need to
get cleaned..
so what you need do is to clean it with some
alcohol and give a small drop on a q-tip and then
give it hover around on the ball like crazy in different
direction so that way all the different direction will go works
once when you use the trackball again.

BUT OF COURSE, BEFORE YOU DO ALL OF THAT PROCESS,
PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOUR SIDEKICK IS COMPLETELY
TURNED OFF FIRST BEFORE YOU GO AHEAD DO ALL OF THAT PROCESS.

and good luck.

Texting & Trackball problem!


Victor-

Try a quick clean on your trackball

1: Take a deep breath and blow on the trackball area, rotate and do it again. This may blow any particles that are blocking the sensors. If you spit a lot, make sure you have a handy wipe nearby!
2: This requires a Q-tip and some alcohol. Turn off your sidekick, wet the end of the q-tip, and gently clean the trackball while rotating. Use the dry tip of the q-tip to dry off and clean again with another alchohol dipped swab. Let dry for a minute and try it out. If this doesn’t work then try again.

Your sidekick is trying to autotext for you.
Go into settings choose autotext and spelling, and turn off the auto complete.

Track Ball


Your track ball may simply be dirty. Get a q-tip wet with rubbing alcohol and rub your track ball and repeat until the q-tip stays clean. Hope this helps!

Sidekick 3 problems


Antonio-

You may be able to fix many of those things yourself. The trackball proabaly just needs to be clean. Does the LCD have a white screen when it is on? The Camera, well that may take some work.

For the white screen check out here: http://www.repairmysidekick.org/Fix-Sidekick-White-LCD-Screen

If it is not white, a new lcd can be had for 45 dollars on ebay.
they are easy to replace.

replacement of the Sidekick 3 LCD flip screen.

To clean your track ball, follow these instructions:

1: Take a deep breath and blow on the trackball area, rotate and do it again. This may blow any particles block the sensors.
2: This requires a Q-tip and some alcohol. Turn off your sidekick, wet the end of the q-tip, and gently clean the trackball while rotating. Be careful not to get the alcohol on anything but the trackball. Let dry for a minute and try it out. If this doesn’t work then try again.
