Question about T-Mobile Sidekick® 3 Cellular Phone

2 Answers

Sidekick 3 dropped in a cup of water. Water got into screen.

The sidekick 3 was dropped in 1/2 cup of water. It was not totally submerged. Spent 1 hour drying the phone with a hair dryer. Took battery out and let dry for 3 days. The phone will power up when turned on, but the screen goes blank. Can it be repaired and how much will it cost? Thanks, Mary

Is the screen blank all the time?

If you look really hard can you see the items on the screen but they are really dark? If so the back light for the lcd may have burned out.

Take a look at the following site for instructions on disassembly.

http://www.gsfx.org/disassembly/index.htm

If you feel comfortable with it, you can easily replace your own.
A new lcd runs about 50 dollars shipped. If you buy it from ebay, they will usually come with instructions and the screwdriver you need. A T6 torx driver is the type needed.

Good job on drying it out and pulling the battery. Thats the best thing you can do when you get it wet!

I never did get the measuring cup for my Ronco Pasta maker and they said it was no longer available and suggested I try trial and error. I bought this machine so that I would not have to trial and error...


I measured and wrote amounts below in my instruction book in case I misplace the measuring cup.
Full Load
Liquid: 2 eggs and water to total 7 oz.
Flour: 3 1/2 cups flour with a small amount of olive oil (1 tsp?)

Half Load
Liquid: 1 egg and water to total 4 oz.
Flour: 1 3/4 cups flour with a small amount of olive oil (1/2 tsp?)

My phone had water damage for quit a while now and the screen light is very dim.i tried making it brighter but it was at its highest point already. help pllz


you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried

Sidekick ID ??Water Damage??


I had the exact same problem with my sidekick. I believe that tm is taking advantage of their customers and charging for defective phones using a phoney water damage claim. I will never sign with tm again. I am going to call the manufacturer of the sidekick-just to *****.
