My screen light on my sidekick wont turn on. The keypad light will turn on but not the screen. Sometimes it'll turn on by itself but only at random moments, and i'll never know how long it'll last. I can't buy a new sidekick at the moment because I'm still debating wether I want to renew my contract or not, and the prices are still a little much for me. Any "bright" ideas?
The problem may lie in the settings-->System-->Backlight-->Battery Power--> Make sure you check "Turn on backlight when a button is pressed...."
I believe this is a firmware bug.
Do the same for external power.

Sounds like you unit is not charging. The Sidekick ID's are notorious forthat. If you have a friend that has a sidekick ID or Sidekick 3, see ifyou can try their battery to make sure you phone is working ok.
If so, your best option is to get an external charger that has a sparebattery slot That way you can charge the battery outside the phone!They run about 25-30 dollars on ebay. an extra battery is a good idea so you can have one charger at all times.
