You can test it; put probes on the backlight wires to see if it's being powered and how much, then try an independent supply on a disconnected display to see if it was the connector, backlight, or a driver circuit which failed (assuming you already got under a bright lamp and twiddle the settings to permit backlight toggling, then tried toggling it.)

Well thats another common problem with the sidekick 3. Your backlight went out. LIke lightbulbs do. Get your screen replaced, or luckily just your backlight replaced

Posted on Feb 03, 2008

If you change the screens. like get someones sk2 screen and replace it wit yours, thats if they dont want it. thats what my sister did and it works perfectly.

Because your screen is broken and that can only be fixed if you have it replaced.

My sidekick backlight


Is it the LCD back light? If so, it probably burned out. Did the phone get wet recently? That is usally the main cause.

You can get a replacement screen on ebay for about 40-50 dollars. Look for ones that come with the instructions and screwdriver. You will need a T6 Torx Driver.

Sidkeick 3 backlight


Have you tried checking the Battery and Display settings from the main screen Settings menu? There is an option to enable or disable the backlight, as well as set the brightness.

There is also a setting called "Use ambient light sensor", which sets the backlight and keyboard light to only turn on if it is dark when you are using it.

Screen light wont turn on


The problem may lie in the settings-->System-->Backlight-->Battery Power--> Make sure you check "Turn on backlight when a button is pressed...." I believe this is a firmware bug. Do the same for external power.
