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.

Is it white or dark?

If blank white, then the cable needs to be reset if dark then the lcd screen needs to be replaced. They are easy to change and run about 35 dollars for the whole assembly.

Sidekick lx spacebar


Go to:

http://www.fixmysidekick.com/sidekick-lx-or-sidekick-2008-space-bar-not-working/164/


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.

Sidekick 3 white screen


Did you by chance drop the phone recently?

A loose cable for the lcd can cause this or a bad lcd.

You need to disassemble it to take a look.

You will need a set of Torx screwdrivers to get it open.
