Sidkick lx lcd backlight malfunction

My backlight doesn't work on my sidekick lx and it is driving me crazy. I tried about 2 different lcd screens on my phone (not the whole replacement flip, just the actual lcd screens) and they also don't work. I heard that the pins on the motherboard are fragile, and i may have touched them but they look fine. Idk maybe it could also be the small ribbon thats located in the hinge on the flip thats damaged but i cant find anywhere that sells actual sidekick lx ribbon parts besides buying a whole new lcd assembly or new phone. Help!!!!

No display light


It is possible that the backlight on your LCD is burned out. If you have a friend with a Sidekick LX, see if you can swap the lcd screens quickly. This will let you determine if it is the phone or the LCD screen

Sidekick 3 LCD


Nope, It has the same connector but they are pinned out differently so they won't work. I know because I experimented with my sidekick 3, sidekick ID and Sidekick 2.

YOu can get a replacement LCD from ebay, They run about 40-50 dollars.
