1 Answer

Blank screen I dropped my SideKick 3 down to the floor yesterday and the screen is on and lighted, but just blank. No icons, no texts, no displays. I am aftraid it might be broken, but I want to see if there is anything I could get it in working condition again. If not possiblity, I am open to suggestions. I already removed the battery overnight and reconnected this morning, still not working. I can see the side light flashing occasionally which it is still recieves the text messages and emails.

Mine did this too. Once you dropped it, The screen went blank because it's the first time you've done it. Just leave it off for a few hours, And it SHOULD go back to normal... If It doesn't contact T-mobile. :)

The display board may be broken it has three replaceable units
1. Screen (if damage / broken into pieces)
2. Display Connector (Which can damage when you drop)
3 The processor can be dislocated / even damaged severly
the best decision is to replace those part through service center

Sidekick Display Issues!


The trackball will blink green when the sidekick is in sleep mode, to let you know that it is still on just saving battery. I personally think it gets pretty annoying after awhile.. Also if it blinks blue while in sleep mode it means you have a new text, email, alert, etc. The only time the trackball doesnt blink green is when you are using it. Hope this helped!

Sidekick 3 dropped in a cup of water. Water got into screen.


Is the screen blank all the time?

If you look really hard can you see the items on the screen but they are really dark? If so the back light for the lcd may have burned out.

Take a look at the following site for instructions on disassembly.

http://www.gsfx.org/disassembly/index.htm

If you feel comfortable with it, you can easily replace your own.
A new lcd runs about 50 dollars shipped. If you buy it from ebay, they will usually come with instructions and the screwdriver you need. A T6 torx driver is the type needed.

Good job on drying it out and pulling the battery. Thats the best thing you can do when you get it wet!

Yep, you can replace the screen yourself.

They run between froty and fifty dollars on ebay. Most come with detailed instructions and the screwdriver you will need. A Torx T6 is what you will need to open it.
