    Yea, my sidekick3 also has this problem. Actually, I just got this phone for Christmas and it happened so we sent it back. Then when we got another one, the same thing happened again! I was thinking that maybe the screen is very fragile, maybe theres a cord inside it that git twisted up or something, and I dont know how to fix it. I really like this phone but if it happens again my parents said that we are getting our money back and I will not be able to have this phone anymore. :-(

Follow this procedure and it should fix the issue. If not then a new lcd definetly will

if you don't have a t6 torx driver, a small flathead will do the trick.

Sidekick 3 white screen


Did you by chance drop the phone recently?

A loose cable for the lcd can cause this or a bad lcd.

You need to disassemble it to take a look.

You will need a set of Torx screwdrivers to get it open.

My sidekick3 screen is blank


If your sidekick ID or Sidekick 3 screen is a blank white, then the lcd flex cable has come loose. It is a little difficult to repair but any one can do it. The worst that will happen if you try to repair yourself is that it will not work and you buy a replacement screen from ebay for 45 dollars.

Here are the detailed instructions. Just reinstall your lcd instead of putting a new one on.
