My screen is white but the rest is fine


So, my guess is you may have dropped you phone recently?

The sidekick lcd connector comes loose sometimes and causes the white screen.

Follow the guide at the link below and you can try to reseat it yourself.

Failing that, you can buy a new screen and install it. They are like 30 dollars.

Here is a guide for that

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

Reset login on sidekick lx


ollow the steps below to clear the datastores off and simulate a hard reset:
- Reboot the device by pressing @+1+0
- IMMEDIATELY press and hold the 'R' key on the keyboard. Continue to hold the 'R' key down
- The device will reboot, and when the initial boot screen (the 4 face buttons animation shows) displays, the screen will clear and the device will reboot again.
- Let go of the 'R' key at this point, and the device will reboot with no datastores, and force a resync.

Sidekick II


It's on of two things.

They screen cable may have come loose. Has she dropped it recently?

The second may be that the LCD has died altogther.

You can disassemble and check to see if the cable is firmly in place. http://www.instructables.com/id/Sidekick-II-disassembly/

You will need a T6 torx driver or a small flat tip screwdriver that you can fit into the torx slot.

If the cable is secure, a new LCD should fix the issue. They run about 40 dollars on ebay.
