My radio doesn't work screen is blank for my 2005 Audi A8

You either have a Blown Fuse or your Radio went bad.. I have seen BOTH happen. Test your Fuses and if the fuses are all good, you need to pull the Radio and confirm that you have Power getting to the Radio and if there is Power, you Radio is SHOT!!!

Motorola T5950 led screen

Typically a blank screen indicates you are using a bad or defective battery. Try the battery of another radio in this unit and see if the problem still exists. There is no function to shut off the display screen, so it is apparent you have either a battery or radio problem. Here is a copy of the user manual:
