Question about T-Mobile Sidekick ID Cellular Phone

Sidekick Gekko Wont Turn On

Okay, I was on the phone with my sidekick while it was connected to my computer and suddenly the screen went blank and dropped my call.
When I tried getting the screen to come back on it remained blank and the only lights that were on was the green red call and end buttons and the orange charger light.
I waited about 10 mins and then i tried to turn it off since the key lights were still showing but it would not work so I manually took the battery out and put it back in. Then I tried turning it on again but it would not work, after that I've charged it for about 2 hours and it still wont turn on.
What should I do?
Is there any quick fix?

The problem with your sidekick 2008 screen is the backlight is burned out. this can happen if dropped or if it gets wet.

The only way to fix it is to replace the screen. It is fairly easy to do and new ones run about 65 dollars on ebay.

My sidekick "gecko" is not working properly. The trackball is not responding but selects things on its own.


More than likely, the trackball on your Sidekick 2008 (gekko) is really dirty.Overtime, dirt and grime gets in between the ball and the sensors.

It is really easy to clean it, you will need q-tips and IPA alcohol. No dis assembly is usually needed!

Check out the Video at the following link to see how the trackball cleaning on the Sidekick 2008 is done

My sidekick id


Is the screen white or black?

If it is white you may be able to fix it, black maybe not.
The following instruction for a sidekick 3 but it is the same for a sidekick ID. Just reseat your lcd instead of installing a new one.

Screen went blank


Yep, you can replace the screen yourself.

They run between froty and fifty dollars on ebay. Most come with detailed instructions and the screwdriver you will need. A Torx T6 is what you will need to open it.
