    I have the same problem with my id and i know the flex cable is the issue. I am waiting to try the solution because i do not have a T6 torx driver. It does seem like this would work though because i have taken the screen off the phone itself and messed with the flex cable but it only temporary fixed it.

If you sidekick ID screen is white, you may be able to fix it. The flex cable connection cable on the lcd screen itself can come loose. Chance are if you tighten it, the screen will work again. I have had success with sidekick II and sidekick 3 with this same problem.

The following instruction for a sidekick 3 but it is the same for a sidekick ID. Just reseat your lcd instead of installing a new one.

    Instead of a T6 torx, you can use a small flat head screw driver that jams into two of the slots of the screws. It works in pinch!!
