I have a brand new phone. I cannot get my display screen to reflect anything. No caller i.d., no menu information, no date or time information etc. I have subscribed to the necessary services through the local telephone company and all the features worked for a couple of days but just stopped working. Also none of the lights are lit up on the phone but I can make and receive calls. I have re-set the phone by unplugging everything and then plugging everything back up and removing the batteries and replacing the batteries however, the phone still will not provide any information in the display screen. The phone also will only beep instead of ringing when a call comes in.

The date and time is supplied with the caller ID information from your phone service provider. When you get a call, the date and time will be set. (If you don't have caller ID, there's no way to set the date and time otherwise. I've always wondered who came up with such a silly design.)
The phone actually has a "OPTIONS MENU" where you can set the date. When the display is showing time and date, press the "DIAL" button first and then while still holding down the "DIAL" button, press the "DEL" button the "Options Menu" will appear after about three seconds of holding down both buttons. Use the "REVIEW" arrow buttons to scroll through the menu and the "DIAL" button to select the options.
Sounds like you may not be selecting the right menu buttom. The soft keys are right below the screen. these three buttons function change depending on which screen you are viewing. I have copied the instructions from the manual below. You must select phonebook to view the phone book using the round button. You must select volume to change the volume with the round button.
The Standby Screen
When the phone is in standby, the handset display shows the following items:
Ringer off icon (when the ringer is off)/ day of the week and time / battery iconHandset ID and BannerNumber of new Caller ID calls received (If there are no new Caller ID messages, the Handset ID appears here.) SUN 12:00A Handset #1 New CID: 5REDIALMENU
Using the Four-way Function Key
Your handset has a four-way function key that allows you to move the cursor (or highlighted area) on the display and access the most commonly used features at the touch of a button. By moving this key to the left, you open the Phonebook. Move the key to the right to access Caller ID information. To use this four-way key, place your thumb over the key on the station and move to the four positions to get the feel of how it moves and operates.
Using the Handset Menu
To open the menu, press the MENU soft key. Highlight the option you want by pressing the four-way function key. This will move the cursor; the option currently highlighted appears in reversed out text. Select the highlighted option by pressing the OK soft key. To exit the menu and return to standby, press .
If you do not press a key within 30 seconds, the phone will time out and exit the menu. When setting Date and Time, the time-out period is extended to two minutes.
Note: For GLOBAL SETUP and DEREGISTRATION menu options, make sure the line is not in use and the handsets are within range of the base. 123abcdefView the phonebook Four-way Function KeyUpView the Caller IDDown123abcdefView •

Does anything show on the external display if you go to take a picture, but before you acually take it, close the phone and look on the external display as if you were taking a self-portrait?
To make fully sure, while the phone is closed, press a volume button - does anything show on the display? If so, the external display functions and it would be a setting that may have been overlooked.
