You have the dreaded YLOD. It is pretty hard to fix and the best thing to do is to send it to Sony to have them fix it. You can look it up on the internet on how to fix it, but you will need a torx screw and a heat gun. You can look it up on youtube or google for Gilsky's YLOD fix.
NOTE: You will have to remove your warranty sticker to fix the YLOD, so beware.

Display dosnt work at all. it plays music fine i just dont see anything on the screen.

look and see if the yellow illumination wire behind the stereo is connected to the power wire, you may not have its lights wired up, this could cause you not to be able to see a display, to test this for sure shine a bright flash light into the face while its playing, if you see some display, this is the problem

what steps have you gone through to test it are you just going of it installed in your car if so take it out and connect the red and yellow wire and put it to + on a battery and the black to - if it still dosnt come on does it make a clicking noise does the fan spin on the back

there are so many reasons as to why it dosnt work but you need to bench test it out of the car there is a fuse in the wiring it could be that the supressor is faulty you need a car battery if you get it working then the fault is in your car a blown fuse or something

let me know the exact problem once bench tested if the screen comes out or in but no lights or the unit is tottaly dead or what
