Sidekick screen messed up

The screen on my sidekick 3 is all messed up. All I see is a lot of dots and I can't see the menu at all. I tried contacting t-mobile and sharp and they both couldn't help me. Can someone give me some ideas on what to do? I have uploaded pictures.

I turned the phone on and there is nothing on the display. I can hear sounds but nothing shows up on the display. No menu...nothing...just a blank screen. This is on a Sidekick 3.

IF you sidekick 3 screen is blank then the lcd needs to be replaced. Replacing the Sidekick 3 LCD screen is pretty easy and cost about 25 dollars if you buy it from ebay.

Waiting for activation

Sidekick 3

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.

SK3 - remove the battery while the device is on.

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.
