    I've experienced the same problem...It's a shame that you pay so much for a phone and it just goes blank when you use it. I hate that I have relied on the phone as it has all my information on it. How can I resolve this problem?

    If you keep turning on and off it will eventually work again. This last time I think I did it over 50 times but it's finally working again!

If your sidekick ID or Sidekick 3 screen is a blank white, then the lcd flex cable has come loose. It is a little difficult to repair but any one can do it. The worst that will happen if you try to repair yourself is that it will not work and you buy a replacement screen from ebay for 45 dollars.

Here are the detailed instructions. Just reinstall your lcd instead of putting a new one on.

You can also just take out the battery and the sim card.Leave it apart for 24 hours then put it back and it works just as before.

If white, then the flex cable needs to be reseated.

Did you by chance drop the phone recently?

A loose cable for the lcd can cause this or a bad lcd.

You need to disassemble it to take a look.
