Sidekick 3 Screen Problem

Hi, well I accidently stepped on my sk3 charger and my phone came falling down to the ground, when i picked it up the screen had..I guess the best way to put it is overspun? I don't remember what direction exactly, but now there is no spring action in the phone and I have to make sure I flip the screen all the way around. Any ideas how to fix?

Sk3


Firmware crashed. T-mobile needs to reload the OS into your device. Its "blank" or corrupt. Only way to bring the device back is to flash it

Camera problem


Yes. hello. i can answer your question. i was in the t mobile store looking at the sk3. They said take the battery cover off and look into the camera lense. then they said just to flick it. it worked. now they said that would only work if u purchased your sk3 a month or so after the unvailing of the sk3. (weather or not u had t mobile b4.)

HI im a tech at repairmysidekick.com the problem is the white screen is because of the many times you fliped the screen open or close and the flex cable which connect the screen to the phone is damaged...if you like an easy fix you can try to open the screen halfway and stick a paperclip in the pinhole on the right to soft reset the lcd if it doesnt work you can also try to remove the screws on the crome base and turn the screen upside down...check the leeds if they are gold there good if black you need to change the flex cable we can do it for you. just visit repairmysidekick.com

Sidekick 3 does not receive charge


All right. The Sidekick 3 has a known charging issue that crops up on some phones. If you are under warranty, call t-mobile and get it fixed. If not, the repair is going to run 100+ to fix the charging port.

A fast and simple solution is to by an external charger and an extra battery. They run about 30 bucks total on ebay.

Check out Sidekick Battery Chargers.

Be glad the battery is easily removable. The original sidekick and sidekick II had internal batteries that are a pain in the butt to remove!!!

Sidekick 3


Sad to say, this is a common problem with the sidekick 3.

The charging port probably has gone bad. If it is under warranty call t-mobile.

If not, you can have it repaired but it can be pricey.

A workaround is to buy a sidekick charging cradel with a spare battery charging slot. An extra battery makes this easier. This will allow you to charge your battery outside the phone.

Both will cost you about 40 dollars total on eBay.
