    I have the same problem, but doing the W thing or resetting my battery doesn't seem to do anything. I can see the box and when I do @+1+0 it fades slightly for a second, but then nothing changes :/

Gets stuck on the sidekick 3 has black box in middle of screen but w - key-jump.gif symbol? Do a soft reset @ + 1 + 0 and hold down the W or you can pull the battery out and place it back in while holding the W and see what happens when you startup while holding W. __________________

Black screen


If this is a sidekick 3, then you will need to change the screen.

It is easy to do and runs about 25 dollars.

My sidekick is going crazy wont turn on anymore


This problem was said a lot by some users when the first batch of sidekick 3's were released last year. What you do is do a soft reset @ + 1 + 0 and then when it shuts down quickly hold down the W and when you see it restart you should see the sidekick 3 picture with a face on it and stars above its head, and from there you select English and you follow what the screen says to help you get past the bootup screen.

if you continue to have a problem, try removing your memory card and see how the phone works for a while.

Sidekick will not turn on ?


ahh thats right well
heres what you do:
1. Take out battery.
2. Press and Hold on to the letter W. Don't let go.
3 Put the battery back in while your still holding it.
4. In a few seconds it should bypass that little black box, and have like a pictures of a knocked-out sidekick (confused in a way). Then you let go of W.
5. It'll then ask you to reboot and you do so. This should work. I heard that it might not work for all, but for most it does.

Swivel doesn't shut. black piece in the way?


I believe its the flex cable, you''d have to ask expert(if you arent familiar with the sidekick) and loosen you flex cable. I bieleve it tightens wen it tries to flip. If its not that, comment baq with more detail
