So your the cable for your LCD probably came loose on the inside. A white screen means you lcd is getting power but not a signal.

YOu will need special screw drivers to get in there to take a look, They are callled Torx.

See here for some more info. T-mobile Sidekick Repair parts

    Your cable for the LCD is proabably loose. You can disassemble and reseated the cable to see if it helps. The following guide is for a sidekick 3 but the sidekick 2 procedure is exactly the same.

    It that fails you can get a new lcd flip assy for about 35 dollars on ebay.

    If it is a white screen then the flex cable has probably come loose.
