It doesn usually happen when dropped. You may be able to fix it by removing the flip screen and rotating spring action fli[p piece.

The following instrutions are for a sidekick 3 lcd screen but it is the same for a sidekick id.

I have getting error code E000020.


E020 The path between the sub hopper and the developing assembly is clogged with toner.
0000 The developing assembly toner sensor
detects the absence of toner, while the
sub hopper toner sensor detects the
presence of toner. With the developing
clutch turned on, the hopper feedscrew
motor is rotated for 1 sec intermittently
194 times; still, the developing assembly
toner sensor does not detect the presence
of toner.
Replace the developing assembly toner
sensor. Replace the sub hopper toner sensor.
Replace the DC control PCB

Usb for sidekick id


Trackenerdzz-

The sidekick ID doesn't support USB. With the sidekicks, the only thing you see when you plug it in to the computer is the memory card. The Sidekick ID doesn't support memory cards so you will not see anything......Unless you get a developers license.

Sidekick 3 problems


Antonio-

You may be able to fix many of those things yourself. The trackball proabaly just needs to be clean. Does the LCD have a white screen when it is on? The Camera, well that may take some work.

For the white screen check out here: http://www.repairmysidekick.org/Fix-Sidekick-White-LCD-Screen

If it is not white, a new lcd can be had for 45 dollars on ebay.
they are easy to replace.

replacement of the Sidekick 3 LCD flip screen.

To clean your track ball, follow these instructions:

1: Take a deep breath and blow on the trackball area, rotate and do it again. This may blow any particles block the sensors.
2: This requires a Q-tip and some alcohol. Turn off your sidekick, wet the end of the q-tip, and gently clean the trackball while rotating. Be careful not to get the alcohol on anything but the trackball. Let dry for a minute and try it out. If this doesn’t work then try again.

Sidekick 3 dropped in a cup of water. Water got into screen.


Is the screen blank all the time?

If you look really hard can you see the items on the screen but they are really dark? If so the back light for the lcd may have burned out.

Take a look at the following site for instructions on disassembly.

http://www.gsfx.org/disassembly/index.htm

If you feel comfortable with it, you can easily replace your own.
A new lcd runs about 50 dollars shipped. If you buy it from ebay, they will usually come with instructions and the screwdriver you need. A T6 torx driver is the type needed.

Good job on drying it out and pulling the battery. Thats the best thing you can do when you get it wet!
