Question about T-Mobile Sidekick® 3 Cellular Phone

Sidekick 3 screen is blank

Hello

I was wondering if someone could help me out with a problem I am having with my sidekick 3. The problem that I am having with the sidekick is that the screen is completely white, and the picture is distorted. I have called Tmobile they won't help me because I live in Canada and I do not have a contract with them.

I have also tried the tips that I found from the Guru, that worked for a total of a day and my sideskide is acting up again.

Can someone please help me solve this issue with my phone. please feel free to send a response to ms_jadediamond@yahoo.ca

If you tried reseating the lcd flex cable and it didn't help then you best option is to replace the lcd screen assembly.

It is really easy to do and they run about 25 dollars on ebay.

Screen not working


Lisa-

I am sorry to hear that the new sidekick 3 is not working for your son.

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

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

My sidekick3 screen is blank


If your sidekick ID or Sidekick 3 screen is a blank white, then the lcd flex cable has come loose. It is a little difficult to repair but any one can do it. The worst that will happen if you try to repair yourself is that it will not work and you buy a replacement screen from ebay for 45 dollars.

Here are the detailed instructions. Just reinstall your lcd instead of putting a new one on.
