Unless it starts/boots up, the computer will not detect it. It seems that the battery of the side kick is dead and that is the reason why it does not hold charge. Try booting it while charging. It may boot up. It needs a new battery. Please supply one.

Sounds like you may have a fuel leak, somewhere!
It could be out onto the (surroundings), or into the motor.
If the exhaust smells like fuel, I would almost bet it's leaking into the engine, and would have to guess that one or more of your fuel injectors are "seeping".

My sidekick 3 won't turn on


Jake-

That is the right button. The charging port is probably bad. This is a common occurence on sidekick 3's. Does the orange light come on but it nevers seems like it is charging?

The best thing to do is get a edocking cradle that has an external battery charger. It will allow you charge the battery seperate form the phone.

Is the orange light coming on but you have no power? If so, then it is probably not charging. The sidekick 3 charging port is notorious for going bad. The little contacts that send power to battery come loose.

Find a friend that has a sidekick 3 or sidekick ID and try out their battery. If it powers up, it is your charging port.

The easiest thing to do is to get a charging cradle that has a spare battery charging slot. They run about 25 dollars off off ebay and allows you to charge the battery seperate from the phone. A spare battery is good too as it allows you to have one charging at all times.
