I turned the phone on and there is nothing on the display. I can hear sounds but nothing shows up on the display. No menu...nothing...just a blank screen. This is on a Sidekick 3.

IF you sidekick 3 screen is blank then the lcd needs to be replaced. Replacing the Sidekick 3 LCD screen is pretty easy and cost about 25 dollars if you buy it from ebay.

Camera stopped working

Try taking the actual lcd screen of and put it back together.. Its 2 screws and you pull it out and then put it back in and re-assemble it. If you need a guide let me know.. IT might work or it might be an internal or software issue!

Sidekick 3 problems


You may be able to fix many of those things yourself. The trackball proabaly just needs to be clean. Does the LCD have a white screen when it is on? The Camera, well that may take some work.

For the white screen check out here:

If it is not white, a new lcd can be had for 45 dollars on ebay.
they are easy to replace.

replacement of the Sidekick 3 LCD flip screen.

To clean your track ball, follow these instructions:

1: Take a deep breath and blow on the trackball area, rotate and do it again. This may blow any particles block the sensors.
2: This requires a Q-tip and some alcohol. Turn off your sidekick, wet the end of the q-tip, and gently clean the trackball while rotating. Be careful not to get the alcohol on anything but the trackball. Let dry for a minute and try it out. If this doesn’t work then try again.
