I do not know if you had repaired your unit or not but I will detail my experience in repairing my unit today. I had exactly the same problem where the unit suddenly went blank. Here is the procedure,
1- Pressed the mode switch several times to make sure I did not put the
unit in the blank mode accidently (did not work)
2- Checked the 7.5 A fuse number 10 and it was Ok
3- Removed the two screws holding the unit to the ceiling and pulled the unit
from the front to release the two clips.
4- I used a T-10 security bit to disassamble evey thing in the unit and to
get to the printed circuit board.
5- I found two surface mount resistors next to each other with 510 printed
on them that were cracked off the board (you need magnifing glass).
They overheated (poor design) and they desoldered themselves off the
6- You can resolder them or better replace them.
7- I used two 68 ohms quarter watt resistors (to reduce power disspation)
and soldered them in their place.
8- You can check your work by attaching the board to the wire harness and
to the plug in the ceiling and turn ignition on.
9- If everything is Ok (as I hope) disconnect the board and reassemble the
unit and install it back.
Hopefully this will help someone in the future.

I rem someone fixing it seems like it was nothing more than fixing a cold solder joint.

I am looking into the fuse that controls this. Typically it controls
several other components so if other components (for instance the
radio, dome lights, gauge, etc) do not work then it is a fuse issue.
More often than not, it is the computer module itself.
You can get a replacement from Ford but I believe it costs $500+.
I offer a repair service with a lifetime warranty. Check it out:
