    I'm having the same problem. The start-up screen comes on and the music is playing, but the screen will not change out of the start-up screen.

When park the car in the hot weather condition, the unit turn off by the thermostat to protect it from overheating. Once the unit is cool, restart the unit should resolve the problem. If not, disconnect the power from the unit and wait for 15 second before reconnect. Good luck.

Factory TNR800 radio breaks. Replacement does not work

It needs to be unlocked and programmed by a GM dealer. I had mine done for about $75 US. When first installed it behaved just like yours - blue screen and no response.
