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.

this is a very simple solution if someone hasn't told you the answer yet.... just hold your sidekick right side up then flip it as if you were putting it on a table and then there will be a button with 2 arrows and then 1 with what looks as a dot hold in the button with the do until you see the screen start to light up

You may be able to fix many of those things yourself. The trackball proabaly just needs to be clean. Does the LCD have a white screen when it is on? The Camera, well that may take some work.

To clean your track ball, follow these instructions:

1: Take a deep breath and blow on the trackball area, rotate and do it again. This may blow any particles block the sensors.
2: This requires a Q-tip and some alcohol. Turn off your sidekick, wet the end of the q-tip, and gently clean the trackball while rotating. Be careful not to get the alcohol on anything but the trackball. Let dry for a minute and try it out. If this doesn’t work then try again.

yep, you can do a master reset.

Want to clear out info on your Sidekick info (ie: to sell yours)?

1) Remove your sim card
2) From the jump screen: Menu -> Settings -> System Info
3) Press Menu+Shift+X Select OK to clear the flash.
4) Press Menu+Shift+R Select OK to clear the login information.
5) Perform a hard reset now. This will reboot the device.
To perform a hard reset:

SK2 - Press 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.

6) Call your carrier and ask them to detach your device IMEI from the username locked in. Once that is done, hard reset without your SIM card inserted.

You're done.
