The screen on my T-mobile Sidekick 3 went white.

You need to reseat the LCD cable. More than likely it has come loose in the back of the LCD

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.

Help me please!!

Take you unit to a T-Mobile store and find out what your options are.

If you have insurance coverage (and you should with that phone), it can be replaced with a deductible.

I have a feeling it has to do with a short in the screen cable.

Does it make difference in the display if the keyboard is opened or not?
