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.

Sidekick lx spacebar

Go to:

Or just read this...:

sidekick2008spacebarpicture.jpgIs the space bar on your Sidekick LX not working when you are trying to text or in AIM? Do you have thesame space bar button problem on your T-mobile Sidekick 2008? Does the Sidekick spacebar work in other apps though?
If so then this fix is for you.
1. Open the AutoText & Spelling screen. From the Jump screen, press the MENU button, then select Settings > AutoText & Spelling.
2. Uncheck the following settings:
    • Highlight misspelled words
    • Auto correct spelling
3. Exit out of the settings screen and try it out.
Hopefully, this will have solved your issue.
How to check for misspelled words with these two options unchecked?
Run a manual spell check on T-mobile Sidekick: To run a spell check while in a text field from any Edit Text submenu, or by using the keyboard shortcut by pressing MENU +S.
