My buddy's 3130 did this same thing today. Here's how I fixed it.

While turned on (back light is lit), unscrew the top two screws on the back and remove them.

With the back of the unit facing your palm, tap the unit against your hand like you are trying to knock the screws out of the holes.

After a few taps, the screen should come back on.

Hope this helps. It worked for us.

DTC terminals vary and you may need a suitable connection to plug in. Some scanner units come with up to 10 extra leads to compensate for manufacturer's whims.

The check engine light will not go off and not one shop can find anything wrong with the car.

Reset your ecm. Do this by turning your key to on position with a/c on " engine not running" then disconnect positive battery terminal wait 30 sec. and reconnect, Should clear out all codes from ecm. If this don't work may have to go put on the computer to diagnose problem. But i think this will help. Good luck and let me know how it go's.

ABS light just came on, is it an easy fix. My abs warning light comes on often. It usually stays on until I restart the car, then it might stay off for days but will always relight. Often, I turn the...

The code scanner that you need is called ODBII code reader with ABS, and it works in the same way as the one that you connect to the car computer module (ECU) to read codes when the check engine light comes on, but the cheap ones that you can buy from $50 do not have the ABS brake scan function.

If the problem is the ABS, then it is often a wiring to abs problem, or a defective ABS control module, a scan reading is necessary to know what the problem is.

Below few examples of Code reader with ABS:
