Sidekcik Lx will not charge.

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

Orange light mean


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.

My katana lx wont charge. It took awhile to connect and charge last time, but now nothing.


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.

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

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
