Unfortunately there is no fix for that. The blank screen problem is common on this model. You can try by changing the flex cable of the LCD screen, or worst, an IC that is associated with delivering power to the backlight (if your LCD may still touch sensitive).

The problem is usually due to the camcorder constantly expose in medium to high heat condition. The IC has blown therefore resulted on the issue. Avoid putting the camera/camcorder in the car under hot weather.

Blank screen


Typically this is an indication that your battery is dead. If the music is still playing but the screen is blank I would say a hardware failure and replacement would be the best option.

Blank screen


This has happened to my radio several times after I've dropped it. This is how I fixed the problem:

1) Take the radio out of the cradle and let it play until the battery runs low and
the radio can no longer play.

2) Put the radio back into the cradle, plug in the power cord. When it comes on
the screen should no longer be blank.
