Over night I plugged in my lx to charge. I know it was charging because the port light turnes orange. But, when i woke up in the morning, AFTER LETTING IT CHARGE FOR 8 HOURS, it is still saying low battery and telling me to let it chareg for a few more minutes, then it will turn on. What do I do?
sidekick lx will not charge on battery charger. i switched chargers and i still get the same response as jok3r. low battery and let it charge for a few minutes and then it will automatically turn on
Alright..my sidekick does he same thing but i fund a temp fix....the guy at the store says its the charging port..idk.....first plug it in....let it charge 4 ten min....then try to put in on...it will say the low battery sign...dont worry...then t8 sumting pointy and push it in the little reset hole behind the screen as you swivel it...as soon as you see the little box with the circles in it you press and hold the space button... hopeully it will start by showing the four butttons....if it does start and cuts off at the tmoblie sign jus let it charge longer and do it agian....hopefully it will work on yours it worked on mine....gud luk

The orange light indicates its stuck in charging mode. Hold volume down and power for 15 seconds, you should see the bottom buttons flash a few times and it will go into recovery mode. Use volume keys to highlight restart phone and press power once.
If the Charging slot is broken the you should buy the one alternate charger china made charger in that charge direct you charge you battery, after charge the batter plug-in and transfer all contact in your sim card. after that your Sim card in you other mobile you can find your all contact.
I am going to assume that when you say it took you a while to get it to charge last time, you had to wiggle the charger around and then get it in just the right spot to get the phone to charge, if this is the case there are only 2 solutions try another charger if that works you just have a bad charger, if that fails than something in the port on the phone is bent loose or broken and it will need to be repaired in your providers repair center, if u have insurance u might need to file a claim.
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
heres what i would say. let it charge for more than hr, and this bring it up to speed..if not i believe the battery may be defective, i just experienced this problem last night..the battery happen to be defective, then put another battery after awhile i went to sleep woke up, and it wouldn start...i let it charge for a while and it was good as new
