My tmobile sidekick 3 was in a case and it slipped out of my hand onto the carpet wasn't a harsh drop or anything now the screen comes on but I can't see or hear when i call someone but am able to call and...


One of the two things happened. Either the lcd cable came loose inside or the jolt did damage the backlight.

Follow the guide below to reseat the lcd cable.

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

Used Sidekick


Call your carrier and ask them to detach your device IMEI from the username locked in. Once that is done, hard reset without your SIM card inserted
