The screen on my T-mobile Sidekick 3 went white.


You need to reseat the LCD cable. More than likely it has come loose in the back of the LCD

My screen is white but the rest is fine


So, my guess is you may have dropped you phone recently?

The sidekick lcd connector comes loose sometimes and causes the white screen.

Follow the guide at the link below and you can try to reseat it yourself.

Failing that, you can buy a new screen and install it. They are like 30 dollars.

It is fairly easy to take a apart and reseat.

Is it white or dark?

If blank white, then the cable needs to be reset if dark then the lcd screen needs to be replaced. They are easy to change and run about 35 dollars for the whole assembly.

Help me please!!


Take you unit to a T-Mobile store and find out what your options are.

If you have insurance coverage (and you should with that phone), it can be replaced with a deductible.

I have a feeling it has to do with a short in the screen cable.

Does it make difference in the display if the keyboard is opened or not?

Sidekick 3 white screen


Did you by chance drop the phone recently?

A loose cable for the lcd can cause this or a bad lcd.

You need to disassemble it to take a look.

You will need a set of Torx screwdrivers to get it open.
