you need to go to user settings and switch the dim settings. i suggest you switch it to bright instead of dim in the user menu/settings. sadly this is answered by a 16 year old. =D.

Led display shut down when the detector detect an alert

You have the unit in dark mode. Press the Dim/Dark button again to get the unit to full brightness. THe unit has 3 levels of DIM. First the unit is at its full brightness, pressing the dim/dark button will dim the display and the unit functions normally. Press the Dim/Dark button again will futher darken the display but when the unit alarms the display is turned off and remain off during the alert. After the alert is over the unit waits 20 seconds of no alert to turn the display back on.

Even though it is plugged into power it still won't show any information. It worked one day , but the next day it wouldn't work.

I looked at the 9700's instruction manual, and I could not find any method for resetting the 9700 to its factory default settings. My guess is that the display has failed since there are several other posts for various other Cobra RDs where the display suddenly stopped working.

I no longer get a bright display. The display stays on dim even when I switch to bright. I cannot see the screen at all during the day. I have a Cobra XRS 9930 that has developed a very dim display....

I had the same problem. I also live in Florida and I guess the display overheated in my hot car after time. I eventually bought a new one but it did the same thing.
