Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I'm probably a bit late in replying to help you, but my answer may help others.
I had a DABR101 with an identical problem - just the display lit up bright blue, no text, no radio functions.
As I am a qualified electronics engineer, I opened up the radio and found a flat ribbon cable joining the front panel to the main board via connector CN102 was partially disconnected. It's a very poor connector and the plug falls out easily, so probably the radio had been dropped or knocked. Anyway pushing the connector back together resolved the problem. Radio then working correctly.
I secured the errant plug with a dab of hot glue.
I hope this helps others with this issue, but you should not open up this or any other piece of electronic equipment unless you are qualified to do so as there are dangerous voltages inside.
