Sidekick lx not charging

Hi, i have a problem with my sidekick lx. i dont know how a piece of small papergot into the place i charge my sidekick. it got stuck where i connect the usb to my sidekick and as i was trying to take it off with a pencil one of the little things from where i charge my phone came of. soon i was able to take out the piece of paper off my sidekick but now i cannot charge it due to the little pice of metal that fell off from where i connnet the usb to my sidekick. is there somewhere i can go to repair it near hayward, ca? or is it fixable?

I personslly think instead of breaking the screen and making it more of a problem to fix it (because they are going to ask you how it happened) and you should just say you have paper stuck in it or be honest with them

Remove the battery from your phone and then place it back. Charge your phone and turn it one while charging. If the problem persist, change the battery.

My side-kick LX will not turn on


Try this, though is used for when the device is randomly rebooting aswell, it might help you to force your Sidekick to come back on:
  1. Check the device's battery level for at least two bars of strength.
  2. If the battery level is low, charge the battery.
  3. If the issue is not resolved, remove the back cover.
  4. Remove the battery.
  5. Wait 10 seconds.
  6. Press and hold the W key.
  7. While pressing down the W key, re-insert the battery.
    • The device restarts and after approximately 15 seconds, the 'Recovery' screen appears.

  8. Select the desired language.
  9. Select Reboot to restart the device.
  10. Your Sidekick should go back to the main screen as normal. Good luck

Phone wont charge


Stevey-

The sidekick ID charging port can go bad like the sidekick 3's. An easy workaround is to get an external cradle that has a spare battery charging slot.

The trick is that the sidekick 3 and sidekick ID batteries are the same so the sidekick ID battery can be charged by the external cradle. An extra battery is a good idea as well so you can have ine charging at all times.

Check the cradles out here.

Sounds like your charger port is busted. Ti is a common problem on sidekick 3 and can effect sidekick IDs as well. A fairly cheap workaround is to get an external battery charger. It will have a slot to charge the sidekick battery external formthe phone. They sell on ebay fior about 25 dollars.

The sidekick ID and sidkeick 3 batteries are the same so it will work. Check then out here

Wont charge


well i suggest you take it back to the shop where you got it from they will most likely send it off to the specialists free of charge , because it is a technical problem .

The most likely reason of this problem is maybe your putting the charger in to hard and its pushing it back so its not alowing it to charge? It is quite a bad phone in that aspect
