    my sidekick lx gave me problem so i put it down for a while and i really missed it so i decided to try it agian.It is plugged in,the orange light comes on, the warning about low battery is there and the lil chargin icon in the corner is moving. It has been charging and there is no progress on it coming to life. When i turn it on the lil square icon comes on and then it goes directly to the chargin warning...What is the problem here??...And yeah the green light just came on ..where did that come from??

    I woke up with the alarm going off i removed the cover for an hour then i put my battery back in and the only thing that shows up is the small jump screen button. i tried charging it and putting in a differnt battery the same thing. nothing happens

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

The screen on my Samsung Intercept is black. The phone is on and working, but nothing shows up on the screen. Someone had advised us to fix the flexi ribbon in the phone. I need to know how to fix a flexi...


you will need to buy a "OEM Samsung Intercept SPH-M910 Motherboard Flex Cable Ribbon" they are 10 dollars good search that and an online store will pop up

then you need to dissemble your phone unscrew all your screws and take it apart, the ribbon cable dose not pull out it lifts off and insert the new one just take your time and be patient some parts need some force to come apart but not alot

here is a disassemble guide for an htc slider at 3:55 you see the ribbon cable

How can i get a unlock code for the side kick ls


You can send it in to wireless88.com in care of Argo.
they're an authorize repair center for sidekicks, and they can unlock most sidekicks permanently useing special software - they've done about 3 of them for me, including the LX. Call them and ask to speak with Argo - or visit their website- you won't be dissappointed........ Moe, from Miami, Fl
