It sounds like the prong in the middle of the AC input is loose and therefore not making a good connection with the charger. What do you mean when you say "it won't come all the way back on?"

Tmobile sidekick3 wont charge


It's called the sidekick 3 charging port and they are known to go bad a lot.

You can check out cellulardr for the repair. It runs about 75 dollars or you can get a external battery charger cradel and charge the battery outside the phone.

My sidekick 3 wont go past BATTERY LOW! PLEASE ALLOW DEVICE TO ..


turn off your phone. then remove the battery for 5 minutes. also make sure your charger is not plugged in. then put the battery pack into the phone. it should clear up. also you might have over charged the battery. another solution is to buy a new battery pack and if that does not work your phone is acting up on battery basis

If the orange light is coming on, but not charging the sidekick then the charger port is probably bad.

It's about 80 dollars to fix at cellulardr or you can do a work around and charge the battery seperate from the phone.

check out the charging cradle here:

T-Mobile won't fix my Sidekick 3


best bet is the mini usb jack is faulty where the charger plugs in to. could be the charging base needs to be re soldered. take it to an electronics tech, or your local service centre.

good luck

Phone wont charge


Stevey-

The sidekick ID charging port can go bad like the sidekick 3's. An easy workaround is to get an external cradle that has a spare battery charging slot.

The trick is that the sidekick 3 and sidekick ID batteries are the same so the sidekick ID battery can be charged by the external cradle. An extra battery is a good idea as well so you can have ine charging at all times.

Is the orange light coming on but you have no power? If so, then it is probably not charging. The sidekick 3 charging port is notorious for going bad. The little contacts that send power to battery come loose.

Find a friend that has a sidekick 3 or sidekick ID and try out their battery. If it powers up, it is your charging port.

The easiest thing to do is to get a charging cradle that has a spare battery charging slot. They run about 25 dollars off off ebay and allows you to charge the battery seperate from the phone. A spare battery is good too as it allows you to have one charging at all times.

My sidekick wont work


It seems your charger port is broken, it hapfens often on cellphones, wear and tear. Check to see if its under warranty, and it can be replaced. Check my profile if you need more help.
