If the backlight is burned out then you will need to replace the LCD screen. It is fairly easy to do and runs about 30 dollars from ebay.

No display light


It is possible that the backlight on your LCD is burned out. If you have a friend with a Sidekick LX, see if you can swap the lcd screens quickly. This will let you determine if it is the phone or the LCD screen

Screen not working


Lisa-

I am sorry to hear that the new sidekick 3 is not working for your son.

Is the screen white, blank, or just hard to see?

If white, then the flex cable needs to be reseated.

If dark blank, then reseat the lcd assy itself and see if it works

If hard to see the screen, then the backlight is dead. A new screen is needed for that.

Replace the Sidekick 3 LCD Screen

I hope that helps

Backlight on sidekick 3


Because your screen is broken and that can only be fixed if you have it replaced.

Sidkeick 3 backlight


Have you tried checking the Battery and Display settings from the main screen Settings menu? There is an option to enable or disable the backlight, as well as set the brightness.

There is also a setting called "Use ambient light sensor", which sets the backlight and keyboard light to only turn on if it is dark when you are using it.
