So take it to a mobile service center and have the phone check to see if you might have not put a cable back in the correct place.

Screen


Is it white or dark?

If blank white, then the cable needs to be reset if dark then the lcd screen needs to be replaced. They are easy to change and run about 35 dollars for the whole assembly.

Here is a guide for that

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

Sidekick ID blank screen


if you wiggle around the flexi cable in back of the screen it might flicker on again.
mine was faded but i was still able to see the screen .. i messed with it & it worked.
if you don't trust that way rotate the screen 90 degrees
unscrew it [MAKE SURE PHONE IS OFF!] your going to need a torx wrench, a really small 1.
take the screen off it & undo the back side of the screen & fix the cable that way.
