How do i change my backlight for my sidekick 2008? My screen completely went black.


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.

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!

Phone screen goes blank to a grey color (externallY) .


same problem, broke my screen, ordered a new screen off ebay and replaced it. now it works fine most of the time but sometimes external display freezes. sometimes goes black, sometimes goes multicolor pixelated (full screen, in blocks, or lines) when this happens sometimes touchpad still works, others not. removing battery usualy temporarily fixes.

I dropped my sidekick 08 and the screen slowly went black


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.

Check out the following guide

and then check out what screen are available on ebay. These are the only ones I have been able to find for sale

If it is white you may be able to fix it, black maybe not.
