Sidekick id charger light comes on but phone wont the screen wont turn on but charger light is on


Sounds like you unit is not charging. The Sidekick ID's are notorious forthat. If you have a friend that has a sidekick ID or Sidekick 3, see ifyou can try their battery to make sure you phone is working ok.

If so, your best option is to get an external charger that has a sparebattery slot That way you can charge the battery outside the phone!They run about 25-30 dollars on ebay. an extra battery is a good idea so you can have one charger at all times.

My sidekick 3 won't turn on


Jake-

That is the right button. The charging port is probably bad. This is a common occurence on sidekick 3's. Does the orange light come on but it nevers seems like it is charging?

The best thing to do is get a edocking cradle that has an external battery charger. It will allow you charge the battery seperate form the phone.

In both cases you lcd screen has died, the backlight will usually go first.

Fixing them is easy, a new lcd screen assy can be purchased from ebay for less than 45 dollars. It only take the removal of 2 screws to replace it. Read throught the procedure below.

Sidekick 3 wont turn on


if the light indicates but its not charging. one other thing you can do is a soft reset.take out your SIM card and batter for 30 seconds then replace the SIM card, and hold on to the R button and at the same time replace your battery, your phone should turn on and restart twice. but it will come on.

let it charge for 2 hrs. NOw turn it on but beofre pressing button to turn it on, press and hold the l button then press the on button. Once yu see a sidekick icon that looks confused on yur screen, yu may let go and it will ask to reboot. And you do so. Hopefully this works for you.
