Sidekick 2008 got wet


I dropped a phone in the toilet once, a T-mobile phone. it took a couple of days for it to dry out completely. Then I snapped it back together, and it was fine. Being that yours just got wet, and not immersed is different though, so you may want to take it into T-mobile and see if they can check it out for you because then you will know for sure what is going on. Good luck.

It depends what is wrong. What usually happens is the backlight burns out.

That requires the lcd screeen to be replaced. They run about 30 dollars.

Here is a guide on how to do that.

My sidekick backlight


Is it the LCD back light? If so, it probably burned out. Did the phone get wet recently? That is usally the main cause.

You can get a replacement screen on ebay for about 40-50 dollars. Look for ones that come with the instructions and screwdriver. You will need a T6 Torx Driver.

The keys may have gotten dirty. So when you push one, it also activates ones near by.

These tips apply to the trackball but you can also use them for the keyboard.

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.

Sidekick3 got wet


those kind of problems are fixed by totally changing the parts... because nano technology is very hard to fix..
you could also try opening it and clean a bit the outside of the lens and see if that helps.. but i doubt it because it could be or will be a sulfated contact
