Usually a new lcd assy will fix this problem. It is fairly inexpensive and easy to do. The screens run about 35 dollars.

Here is the procedure for the removal and replacement

I have a question?..


theyre right. it wont work for Verizon to use the full features on the sidekick. because, verizon and sidekick plan are totally different from each other. and only thing it will works for you that you can use the sidekick are sms(text) and to make a phone calls with a verizon sim card in and that pretty much it. 
and also, because a sidekick is restricted to tmobile. of course, but only things differently about it is the sidekick plan is only will works great for a sidekick itself that will definitely benefit you better to have/use the full features such as email, mms, notes, and etc. 

i mean, are you trying to use a sidekick with your verzion sim card in it or what? if so, then pretty much just like i stated right above.
sorry. :[

Go to:

http://www.fixmysidekick.com/sidekick-lx-or-sidekick-2008-space-bar-not-working/164/


Or just read this...:



sidekick2008spacebarpicture.jpgIs the space bar on your Sidekick LX not working when you are trying to text or in AIM? Do you have thesame space bar button problem on your T-mobile Sidekick 2008? Does the Sidekick spacebar work in other apps though?
If so then this fix is for you.
1. Open the AutoText & Spelling screen. From the Jump screen, press the MENU button, then select Settings > AutoText & Spelling.
2. Uncheck the following settings:
    • Highlight misspelled words
    • Auto correct spelling
3. Exit out of the settings screen and try it out.
Hopefully, this will have solved your issue.
How to check for misspelled words with these two options unchecked?
Run a manual spell check on T-mobile Sidekick: To run a spell check while in a text field from any Edit Text submenu, or by using the keyboard shortcut by pressing MENU +S.

Sidekick wont turn on


If you can, try a friends battery, either from a sidekick ID or sidekick 3. The Sidekick ID seems to be having the same issue as the sidekick 3 whefre the charging port goes bad. The best worka round for that is to get a charginfg cradel that has a spare battery slot.

Sidekick 3 LCD


Nope, It has the same connector but they are pinned out differently so they won't work. I know because I experimented with my sidekick 3, sidekick ID and Sidekick 2.

YOu can get a replacement LCD from ebay, They run about 40-50 dollars.

If you wan't to try here are some instructions.
