My sidekick 2008 (gekko) backlight doesnt work i can


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.

Below is a guide for the replacement and a link to buy the 2008 LCD screen.

My sidekick 08 screen is blank but the phone is on


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.

Got my sidekick 2008 wet & now screen wont work


Hello xxlucygoosie,

First off you did the right thing, however you need to leave it for more than just a night, more like 48 hours at least,add a good amount of rice.

Replacing the screen likely would not work as you probably have damaged more than just the screen(the main board) when you tried to turn it on if there was any water in it then you shorted it out.

You will have to replace the phone if you can not dry it out more and it works on some miracle.

Sorry for your misfortune, and thank you for trying Fixya!

Go to:

Or just read this...:



sidekick2008spacebarpicture.jpgIs the space bar on your Sidekick LX not working when you are trying to text or in AIM? Do you have thesame space bar button problem on your T-mobile Sidekick 2008? Does the Sidekick spacebar work in other apps though?
If so then this fix is for you.
1. Open the AutoText & Spelling screen. From the Jump screen, press the MENU button, then select Settings > AutoText & Spelling.
2. Uncheck the following settings:
    • Highlight misspelled words
    • Auto correct spelling
3. Exit out of the settings screen and try it out.
Hopefully, this will have solved your issue.
How to check for misspelled words with these two options unchecked?
Run a manual spell check on T-mobile Sidekick: To run a spell check while in a text field from any Edit Text submenu, or by using the keyboard shortcut by pressing MENU +S.
