It's called the sidekick 3 charging port and they are known to go bad a lot.

You can check out cellulardr for the repair. It runs about 75 dollars or you can get a external battery charger cradel and charge the battery outside the phone.

Wont' stay on and wont' charge


Hello,

If your telephone wont stay on and wont charge, then you need to carry out some test to know where the fault is from. First, test your battery if it is working by inserting it in another phone then charging it for about 3 hours then power on the phone to see if it will come on, if it does, then it means the battery is alright. But if it does not come on, then you know the battery is bad and needs to be replaced.

Now test the phone by inserting a well tested battery inside the phone then power it on, if it comes on, then the phone is alright, but if it does not come up, try to prop the battery so it will connect tightly with the terminal of the phone, then power it on, if it comes on, then it means the battery was loose and just need some propping, but if it still does not come on, then there is a problem with the phones power panel.

Test the charger also, by trying to charge another phone with it to see if it will work, if it charges, then it means the charger is alright and if it does not charge, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced.

After carying out these tests, you will be able to tell which component is faulty and needs replacement.

Take care and good luck

My katana lx wont charge. It took awhile to connect and charge last time, but now nothing.


I am going to assume that when you say it took you a while to get it to charge last time, you had to wiggle the charger around and then get it in just the right spot to get the phone to charge, if this is the case there are only 2 solutions try another charger if that works you just have a bad charger, if that fails than something in the port on the phone is bent loose or broken and it will need to be repaired in your providers repair center, if u have insurance u might need to file a claim.

My enV will not charge!


Hey i think i just figured out the problem to all the port charging issues for the envy and envy 2 phones with verizon. its not the phones, its the charger cord! the part that goes into the phone. it gets pulled out over time from pulling the cord out of the phone all the time. get a pair of pliers. grab the end and push the metal end of the cord against somthing hard, push it back in so it is at the appropriate depth. this should make it charge properly again!

The sidekick 3 has an issue with thte charging port. If you have a friend with a sidekick 3 or sidekick ID, try one of their batteries. If your unit powers on, the charging port has gone bad.

the repair for a charginf port runs about 80-100 dollars. A cheaper work around is to get a charging cradle that has a spare battery charger slot. They run about 30 dollars on ebay and it will allow you to charge the bettery seperate from the phone.

Check out the following link for cradles.

My sidekick wont work


It seems your charger port is broken, it hapfens often on cellphones, wear and tear. Check to see if its under warranty, and it can be replaced. Check my profile if you need more help.
