My sidekick lx 2009 got water damage, and now it


Let it DRY up! Remove the battery and let it sit, open, for several hours, if not days. It needs to dry up completely before it can operate again, if you're lucky. My wife dropped hers in the toilet, but quickly did what I suggest, and the phone was fine the following day.

Sidekick lx with water damage


then there is most likely a fuse/circuit going haywire. nfortunately you need a new device. if your device is on warranty, tmobile should give you a new one no hassle. of you bought it elsewhere then i really have no solution because you will need a new device regardless. sorry.

Sidekick Lx droppd in toilet


Goto ebay and see what a replacement one would cost you.  If you don't have insurance on one with T-mobile your only option is to replace it at their prices.
Everyone who has a Sidekick should have insure because it is very expensive to replace them.  The deductible is the cheapest way to get them replaced.
Good Luck
