It is unlikely that the display itself is faulty although it can happen. The typical problem is either the backlight is defective or the suply to the unit has a bad connection. If you can solder, try resoldering the pins on the display itself. The pins on the ends are the power and ground. I don't recall whether or not your model has a separate back light bulb or not. That too could be burned. Chack for that too.
Keep us posted,

An amplifier should never be turn on without speakers, it will overload internally.
make sure speakers work and try again.

Loose connection on "POWER-SUPPLY" and sometimes solder loose on "C I S BOARD" due to extreme - heat of amplifier. $137.51 repair done in 1HR as I waited at CENTURY SOUND ELECTRONICS.
