If you are strapped for cash, try this fix first Fix Sidekick White LCD Screen

If that doesn't help then here is the procedure to replace the lcd.

Antonio-

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.

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.

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.
