Sidekick III 3 LCD Backlight stopped working sometimes

My Sidekick III 3 LCD Backlight  stopped working only sometimes but now it's off all the time, although I can still see what's on the screen. Do I need to replace the screen or the cable or is it just a loose connection?

You need to replace you LCD. About 50 bucks from ebay. most come with good instructions and the screwdriver. You will need a T6 Torx driver to open the LCD.
