Open the phone back up and unplug all the FLEX cables from the system board then plug all the FLEX cables back in, be sure that the flex cables are aligned correctly and full plugged in. Then try the phone again, I know there has been 4 times where I replaced an LCD and upon turning it on had nothing but black screen. Did what I said above and 3 times the LCD worked perfectly(must have been a FLEX cable not seated all the way) and the 4th time it was a bad LCD screen.
Hi, most screen problems usually happen after a fall or a knock against a solid object. There are two things that might have happened here. One might be, the screen got a hairline crack and the connection to the lcd is broken. The other is that the lcd did not crack, but the connector flex cable is disconnected. The first requires a replacement lcd. The second requires an inspection to see if the flex is disconnected or broken. (You will have to open the phone). If you cannot DIY, then take it to a repair shop. Replacement lcd can be found on ebay.
if you could see any image from the broken lcd before changing it so your new lcd is not working or no installed right
and if not you may try the cable or the hard shock that broke your lcd effected the main board
well its obvious you might need a screen. but before you buy that, if you've opened yur sidekick before or know how to, then try taking out the screen and taking it apart. The flex cable may not be put or or jus a bit tight or scrambled a bit....
I would personally suggest going to ebay. They carry many replacement parts for cell phones such as the Flex cable that you need, and are quite inexpensive as well. I guess figuring out how to install it is the tricky part. Good Luck!!!!
