go to a different store. the worker at the store u went to is an idiot cuz they should be able to fix it for u for a fee. they just totally lost u as a customer. well anyway, go find a different store and ask them if they can fix it.

You need to replace you LCD. About 50 bucks from ebay. most come with good instructions and the screwdriver. You will need a T6 Torx driver to open the LCD.

If you sidekick ID screen is white, you may be able to fix it. The flex cable connection cable on the lcd screen itself can come loose. Chance are if you tighten it, the screen will work again. I have had success with sidekick II and sidekick 3 with this same problem.

The following instruction for a sidekick 3 but it is the same for a sidekick ID. Just reseat your lcd instead of installing a new one.

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.

The problem with your sidekick 2008 screen is the backlight is burned out. this can happen if dropped or if it gets wet.

The only way to fix it is to replace the screen. It is fairly easy to do and new ones run about 65 dollars on ebay.

Below is a guide for the replacement and a link to buy the 2008 LCD screen.
