Camariqqic, Your E172FP is older than dirt!!! Look at the "date of manufacture" on rear of unit. If unit is connected to a "live" 120v ac outlet, it should work. If E172 had a nice bright, clear and crisp display of text and graphics you may need to visit YOUTUBE for some video clips that will show you how to disassemble, inspect and possibly DIY repair the unit so you can get 1-3 more years service out of it. Do your research here at fixya and follow all links you find in the profiles of "budmrtn" "buddymc" "12fixlouie" If you deem unit as too old, and your really not into the soldering of parts to printed circuit boards, then just buy new 16 x 9 wide screen unit. Let us tech's here at fixya know what your intentions are??? 12fixlouie
