Hi this is not from the model listed. as i cant find a user manual for that model. but its worth a try :)
There may not be enough power running to the display. What are you using for a power source? My suggestion is to wire your power to your ACC if you have not already. The other thing I can think of is the connection is bad. Make sure the terminals used to connect your stereo are all tight also.
I fixed my Alpine TDA-7563 with the same problem. My display was completely blank everything else worked. After checking that the LCD display is getting power and everything else in the face that I can think of, I thought maybe the rubber LCD contacts were squeezed down or something and not making proper contact, so I just pushed it back onto the board and pressed.
This was at night, so I had an external lamp and noticed to my delight that the display was in fact working, nothing is wrong with it.
I am embarrased to say that as a technician I forgot that an LCD display needs a backlight, duh.
So a simple connectivity test on the 2 lamps shows that they are both blown.
I have to source them at my local electronics store, I measured the power supply to them as 12Volts, so it is just a matter of getting ones with the right dimensions and bright enough.
Hope you have the same problem, then it will be an easy fix for you.
