If this is a sidekick 3, then you will need to change the screen.

It is easy to do and runs about 25 dollars.

Why does screen go black after call?


You need to disable the proximity sensor. The use of the proximity sensor is to detect if the phone is up to your ear during a call, to turn the screen off. However if there is debris on the sensor or even a screen protector over it, it constantly thinks it is up to your ear, hence blacking out the second you make a phone call.

You can go into settings and call settings to disable the proximity sensor.

My Samsung Impression screen turned completely black. The keyboard still turns on, and the screen vibrates and everything, but I cant do much more because the screen is black. It has no water damage,or...


I think you tried to reboot it and than restore it. If that does not work you may need a trip to the Apple store or call Apple tech support.
The second way:ADDIN TIMER software installation, set up at 2 am, 4:00, 6:00, 8:00 and 1:00 automatic reboot.

I cant answer an incoming call, the screen goes black


you need to recalibrate the proximity sensor. this is what stops you from pushing buttons when you are in a call ect. to do this go to main menu > phone settings > proximity calibration. from here you can recalibrate the screen which should fix the problem

Iphone black screen & buttons "pressed" while on call


I tried a solution to a similar problem and it worked for this problem, which I was having too. All I did was remove the leather case that I used to protect the iPhone. Calling and the screen worked like normal after I took the phone out of the leather case. Try that.

Big black dot on main screen


well...unfortunately that cant be fixed. you can try a software flash, which would just require that u take it to a vzw direct store, and back up ur memory because it could be erased. otherwise, ur phone has a 1 year warranty, take it to a store or call tech support to get a replacement.

Black lcd screen


Does the phone still work? can you make calls? If so, yes, a screen replacement will work.

A white screen usually means no signal is being received by the screen. A black screen means the lcd back light probably died.
