When i turn on my sidekick lx, a memory card error box comes up and says"the inserted card cannot be read. Please use another card." How do i fix this, and how do i get my numbers back???

I feel ya pain. I had this problem and it was severe for about 3 weeks. What I did one day when i was on the bus and just messing with it was while the card is in and while the error screen comes on, take the battery out and put the battery back in and it should come back on and load. If not then your card is probably either corrupted or your sd slot is could be damaged
C if this works anyway

Screen not working


I am sorry to hear that the new sidekick 3 is not working for your son.

Is the screen white, blank, or just hard to see?

If white, then the flex cable needs to be reseated.

If dark blank, then reseat the lcd assy itself and see if it works

If hard to see the screen, then the backlight is dead. A new screen is needed for that.

Replace the Sidekick 3 LCD Screen

I hope that helps

Sidekick LX won't charge

This is a COMMON problem with the Sidekick. Not just the LX but the whole line. You'd think they'd have solved it by now. Anyway, I have a WORKAROUND to bypass your problem. It won't fix ibad charger port, but it will charge your battery for only $5. Go to ebay. Type in "universal cell phone charger". Dozens of these should come up. Most are some variant of a generic China made round charger. They have clip on electrode probes which touch the contacts of your batteries and holds them to recharge them. They work not only with most cell phone batteries, but with digital cameras and pdas too. Anyway, order one that has a good instruction sheet or description. I wasted a whole day recharging one of my batteries the wrong way because the instructions didn't come with it. Generally, the more buttons, the better. These chargers are cheap and dinky looking, but THEY WORK! I charged up a Sidekick 3 battery with one. The only real issue is that they take some time to charge up . At least my SK3 battery did, simply because it's so big. I'd get another battery on ebay and TWO chargers for a total of under $12. Some of these chargers are as cheap as $3 each. I'd have one bat charging and another ready to go just to get around the longer recharge times. For $12, beats the hell out of the $35 I'd have to pay for a Sidekick 3 battery charging cradle!

Sidekick II scroll wheel

I don't know if you're still reading this post here, but if you are, your scroll wheel can be replaced - they do get worn out and stop working over time. I happen to have some because I repair sidekick 2s, so contact me if you would like to discuss it...
