Question about T-Mobile Sidekick II
Why wont my backlight on sidekick 3 turn on?
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

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.
