For a white LCD screen, try the guide at this following link. It is a good thing to try first as finding sidekick ID screens is very hard.

Well finding stores is a bit difficult and im not aware of where you live. BUt if you live in Brooklyn, NY, then downtown brooklyn on futon mall street, theres a stores which sells sidekick screens. Chances of finding an ID screen are unknown to me. By the way this store is close by Futon Mall street and Jay STreet

Bad news, the backlight is probably blown on you sidekick ID. You can replace it fairly easily if you can find a replacement.

Take a look here to see if any are available on ebay.

Ooh, ohh! I know how to fix it!!

Restting the connector to the lcd will usually fix a white screen.

If you sidekick ID screen is white, you may be able to fix it. The flex cable connection cable on the lcd screen itself can come loose. Chance are if you tighten it, the screen will work again. I have had success with sidekick II and sidekick 3 with this same problem.

The following instruction for a sidekick 3 but it is the same for a sidekick ID. Just reseat your lcd instead of installing a new one.

Nope, It has the same connector but they are pinned out differently so they won't work. I know because I experimented with my sidekick 3, sidekick ID and Sidekick 2.

YOu can get a replacement LCD from ebay, They run about 40-50 dollars.

If you wan't to try here are some instructions.

Sidekick II


It's on of two things.

They screen cable may have come loose. Has she dropped it recently?

The second may be that the LCD has died altogther.

You can disassemble and check to see if the cable is firmly in place. http://www.instructables.com/id/Sidekick-II-disassembly/

You will need a T6 torx driver or a small flat tip screwdriver that you can fit into the torx slot.

If the cable is secure, a new LCD should fix the issue. They run about 40 dollars on ebay.
