SOURCE: sidekick 3 dropped in a cup of water. Water got into screen.

Is the screen blank all the time?

If you look really hard can you see the items on the screen but they are really dark? If so the back light for the lcd may have burned out.

Take a look at the following site for instructions on disassembly.

If you feel comfortable with it, you can easily replace your own.
A new lcd runs about 50 dollars shipped. If you buy it from ebay, they will usually come with instructions and the screwdriver you need. A T6 torx driver is the type needed.

Good job on drying it out and pulling the battery. Thats the best thing you can do when you get it wet!

SOURCE: wet cell phone-blank screen

Well it depends on the type of screen you have in the phone. Some have edges that can split open and lose the fluid that projects the picture so your best bet is to just replace the phones screen, if every thing else works fine

SOURCE: dropped phone in water for about 2 sec and pulled

Hi,

problem can be solved.When a phone drops into water the water stays inside the phone.When the water dries insid the board of the phone, it might bridge two IC together and cause demage or makes the phone to act in a strange way.

In order to remove the water from the phone the phone needs to be serviced for it to work properly.

Get a screw driver that can loosen the screws on the phone, unscrew and remove the board of the phone, get a methylated spirit and a brush to clean the board in other to remove the water inside the phone.

After brushing the board, leave it to dry for 10 minutes and fix it back into the phone and the phone will be back to live.

NOTE: if you can lose the phone , i would advice you take it to a mobile engineer to fix it for you in other to cause further damage to the phone.

Have a nice day.

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.
