No display light


It is possible that the backlight on your LCD is burned out. If you have a friend with a Sidekick LX, see if you can swap the lcd screens quickly. This will let you determine if it is the phone or the LCD screen

Here is a link to show you how to remove and or replace the Sidekick LX Screen

Display went from extremely dark to complely black


Hello there.
I understand that your Notebook is not showing the display lights. To isolate the issue please do the following troubleshooting steps.

1) Check the display with external monitor. If the external monitor is showing the display then the problem is with the LCD screen. If the external monitor is not showing the display then the problem is with the display card.

2) If you have any torch light or a cell phone , try focusing the light on the LCD screen after the Notebook is powered on and check whether you are able to see the texts and images on the LCD. If you are able to see the images and texts then it is the problem of the LCD back-lights. The lights which glow at the back of the LCD panel are not working.

If your Notebook is under warranty HP will repair it free of cost.

Contact HP customer chat center for more information regarding the details of the repair and the procedure for sending the Notebook to HP in case of repair.

For contacting HP chat support click on this link or copy and paste it in address bar of a web browser.

Sidekick 3 problems


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.

replacement of the Sidekick 3 LCD flip screen.

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.

Phone will not turn on


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

Problem when I open the phone, please help!


Okay I work for Sprint as a advanced technical support. Your screen is busted I can tell that when you said it was orange. The LCD is non existent and the colors have mixed. I hope for your sake that you have insurance because it is time to get a new phone. and yes when it is closed the sub screen works fine because it is two separate screens and your main screen is the one busted. It is hard to say if you will be able to get your contacts back because in most cases I have seen that information is lost. So it is time to take it to a Sprint Nextel and Repair center. Hope that helps :)
