SOURCE: camera: feature not supported

this is a common hardware issue with Nokia. sometimes it will start working again by itself.

there is nothing that can be done apart from taking the phone back to Nokia.

1) Insert the Cingular SIM card into the back of the T-Mobile Sidekick ID (it should be located behind the battery).

2) Turn on the Sidekick ID, wait for the screens to load.

3) When the screen says "Waiting for Activation", hold the top left button (the "Menu" button with the three lines) on the Sidekick ID and hold the letter "L" on the QWERTY pad at the same time. After a few seconds, let go of the buttons.

4) If Step 3 is done correctly, the Sidekick should be directed to the jumpscreen and display all of the Menu's of the Sidekick ID.

It's very important to remember that you will only be able to use the SMS features of the Sidekick. Meaning, that you will not be able to use the internet, email, AIM/MSN/Yahoo messengers, or any of the data features. You will only be able to use the phone to call or text.

Camera stopped working

Try taking the actual lcd screen of and put it back together.. Its 2 screws and you pull it out and then put it back in and re-assemble it. If you need a guide let me know.. IT might work or it might be an internal or software issue!

Sidekick 3 problems


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.

For the white screen check out here:

If it is not white, a new lcd can be had for 45 dollars on ebay.
they are easy to replace.

replacement of the Sidekick 3 LCD flip screen.

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.
