Re: sidekick 3

Go to a different store. the worker at the store u went to is an idiot cuz they should be able to fix it for u for a fee. they just totally lost u as a customer. well anyway, go find a different store and ask them if they can fix it.

My sidekick 2008 (gekko) backlight doesnt work i can

The problem with your sidekick 2008 screen is the backlight is burned out. this can happen if dropped or if it gets wet.

The only way to fix it is to replace the screen. It is fairly easy to do and new ones run about 65 dollars on ebay.

Below is a guide for the replacement and a link to buy the 2008 LCD screen.

Sidekick 3 Buttons falling off!


The best way to replace the missing buttons on your sidekick 3 is to get a new front housing. You can buy them on ebay for about 15 dollars. It is hard to find the buttons themselves as they are really a pain to take off and replace.

Here is link for the front housings with buttons:
