Front Display Panel Not Responding

The "Operational" panel does not seem to want to work. The unit works fine with the remote, and also displays correctly on the main display side of the front panel, but the buttons refuse to work. I have reset the unit as per the user manual, but no luck. It's as if the operational panel buttons are frozen. There is aslo no display appearing on the operational panel. Any ideas/solutions?

Display not lit up

Seems like the display panel went bad. You can check for sure by unplagging the unit for 45 seconds and plugging it back in. If still no display order a new display panel.

Sampo DVE-611 apparently powers up from front panel switch (w/red light) LCD display, etc. No other buttons work, incl. eject. Remote completely unresponsive. Unit shuts down about 10 sec. later. Anyone...

After several power ups, the front panel buttons eventually "woke up". Replaced remote, and everything's working fine. Not sure why the front panel was temporarily unresponsive.

Front display panel

Check for bad connections on the display pins themselves. Specifically, the ones on the ends are the power/ground pins.
Let us know if that resolves the problem. If not, we'll look further into the circuitry.
