Sidekick 3 Problem


okay i have a sidekick 3 as well and what you need to do is put the paper clip in the hole again and hold the power button at the same time for approximately 3 seconds. This is a hard reset. Now the bad part is that this will reset all of your data back to factory default. If you need further assistance or this does not work click the ask me button next to my name and we can work on it from there. Thanks.

Black lcd screen


Does the phone still work? can you make calls? If so, yes, a screen replacement will work.

A white screen usually means no signal is being received by the screen. A black screen means the lcd back light probably died.
