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.

Is it necessary to purchase the entire replacement kit? Or can we just purchase the LCD repalcement unit which consists of the screen?

If the backlight is burned out, you need to put a new lcd screen in.

It is fairly easy to do yourself and costs about 25 dollars.

No light on srceen.


It usually means that you need new LCD screen or if the screen works and you just don't have a backlight go to Settings>Backlight>On (or 30 seconds or 40 seconds etc.) hope this helps. =)

Backlight on sidekick 3


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

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.

Sidekick3 got wet


those kind of problems are fixed by totally changing the parts... because nano technology is very hard to fix..
you could also try opening it and clean a bit the outside of the lens and see if that helps.. but i doubt it because it could be or will be a sulfated contact

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.
