    I've had the same problem for months. Once I unplugged it and when I replugged it in the LCD numbers came up normal. I saw one other post with a similiar Sangean problem, the fix involved taking it apart, washing the board with alcohol, etc. It didn't say it worked! The radio is great, but ... I can almost make out the numbers at times but it's not good. I need a clock radio I can read! Joe

I've has this radio for 3 years and until yesterday it has performed flawlessley. I've run it on D batteries that whole time.

Yesterday the batteries died and when I replaced them the screen was blank... I took out that batteries and found the AC cord in the box and plugged it in, screen still blank.

I tried new batteries, screen still blank. everything else working perfectly. But I use this radio as a sleep radio at nights so I need to see the screen to set the sleep-time.

I took out the batteries,and disconnected the AC power for 30 minutes. Put back the fresh batteries and BINGO... screen is working perfectly again.

This is a defect in the radio. Reportedly this issue was resolved in later vamps of production, but it still seemed to persist. We discontinued this model due to this exact reason. At this time there is no other solution and the factory can not tell us what the problem was and simply pointed to the LCD.

It's probably the liquid crystal has a crack and is flowing inside the glass. It can only be repaired with a new display.

Why not contact Totaline directly and see what they can offer?

Why does the display appear and disappear after 2 seconds of being plugged in, and I cannot get it to work?

This could be a setting for a timeout of the LCD screen.
It may be a defective product if you cannot print or send test prints.

Could be that the display has developed a fault where the display is losing it connection. May not be repairable. You may have to find a used one from a wreaking yard or buy a after market replacement.

I have lost my LCD display, the numbers are disappearing from the screen. Is there something I can do to get them back, I love my phone but am not happen without the CID

Check the backup battery in the phone... it may be located on the bottom of the case, or under the reciever cradle.
If there is a power adapter, check that it's connected and it's stil providing power to the phone.

Your LCD inverter is giving up. You can either buy a new inverter but its a bit expensive,
or you can have it fixed by some electronic expert.

Digital Radio Digitor by Sangean PR-D3L The LCD display has slowly been failing and is now 95%failed. Is there a spare part or other magical solution available

I have fixed the display on a Sangean PR-D3L that had faded to less than 30%. It was a bit involved and required pulling the radio apart and desoldering a metal sheild off the back of the display board to reveal the "zebra strip" connector for the display. I used a bit of heat and pressure on the connector strip where it contacts the circuit board - presto 100% display. Don't know how long it will last tho'.
