SupaMan is right about that, your flex cable may not be inserted tightly into the lcd screen itself.

Here is a procedure for checking that. It is complicated but worth a shot before you spedn 50 dollars on a new flip lcd assy.

Check Flex cable connection to LCD screen

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....

Nothing but black after replacing broken touch screen


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.

Replaced the screen but there is no image coming up, just a lit up black screen.


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

My lg voyager got ran over and you can barely see either screen


Assuming everything else still works, you can buy a replacement LCD screen on eBay for around $50 and install it yourself. The LCD screen comes with the front and inside screen.
