Question about T-Mobile Sidekick® 3 Cellular Phone
Is there someone out there that can help me with a broken sidekick 3. Its not totally broke, but it needs Fixed! it doesnt display anything. the backlight comes on tho. the track ball doesnt scroll down, needs replaced. the left thumb pad(d-pad) doesnt let you go up or to the right, needs replaced. the camera has terrible quality for pictures. if someone can fix this for me or know of a company that can fix this please email me at ... firstname.lastname@example.org (had to go back to the broken sidekick 2)!
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.
