sounds like the LCD cable connection to the motherboard is loose. if you can, refer to the manual to remove and reconnect the LCD cable connection to the motherboard making sure it is securely attached. if this does not work, test if the same display problem will appear to an external monitor once connected to the laptop. if it does, it would be a video card problem and you'll need to get it replaced. if it only happens to the laptop LCD even after reconnecting the cable connection for it, you may need to get it replaced. hope this helps.

Emachine screen flickers from left to right

make sure the cable connections to and from the LCD and PC are tightened straight in place, tighten each side a little each time, taking turns. Do Not Overtighten. If there is a Video Card installed, turn off the machine, remove the cable to the Video card, remove the video card, SLOWLY, incase it is a PCI-E because it will have a locking tab on the Right side. Unlock, reinstall, reconnect cable, start machine. Also, make sure the cable is connected to the Screen correctly, and if there is a Transformer between the power cable and the screen, make sure it is tight in place. Take your time and good luck.

I dropped my sidekick 08 and the screen slowly went black

more than likely the LCD screen or backlight burned out. You can replace the LCD screen yourself for about 65 dollars which is a lot better than 200 for a new phone.

Check out the following guide

How to Replace the LCD screen on Sidekick 2008

and then check out what screen are available on ebay. These are the only ones I have been able to find for sale
