Turn on, vibrate, flash lights, turn off

Hi. Just try pressing the power button and reset button at the same time. Unit will vibrate when reset. You can use a paper clip or similiar to hit the reset button located behind the screen. After that, plug your device to charger for at least a couple of hours. Hope this helps.

My sidekick 2 is turning on, but has a blank white screen. i tried turning it off, and charging it for a long period of time. i don't think i dropped it, but i have in the past. i dont know whats going on...

This is a problem most likely with the actual connection to the screen. that's why it is just showing all white, I have seen this before. Only way to have it fixed is to have it serviced. Go to your local provider's store and inquire there about service. If you need further assistance let me know.

Is the screen white, blank, or just hard to see?

If white, then the flex cable needs to be reseated.

Screen Is Blank...

Hello Ayoitzpyda, The problem you have is related to the connector from the mainboard to the lcd pannel. It got loose from it's socket and can't send the video signals to the lcd pannel to display. Or it is probably damaged. However in both cases you will need to have it checked at a service center. This shouldn't be an expensive repair but I recomand you to ask them a cost estimate before they actually repair it. If you have a damaged connector that needs to be replaced, it will be easy for them to change it, but if they don't have such spare parts it will be very expensive to get a new one as they are skipped only with the entire screen as a whole part. If you need more informations please post back.
