This unit does not use a battery. It runs off of power from the furnace. Two possabilities. One is a problem with the low voltage power supply from the furnace. The other is that the thermostat died and needs to be replaced.

Honeywell Chronotherm iv Plus power cuts on and off

There's a trouble shooting guide here, you need to check for the presence of 24V when it goes blank, and trace back to where it's disappearing (I assume it is losing the 24v, if not you'll need to go through the installer setup or read on...
My first thought would be to check the wiring which has been touched last if it started doing that after you had coil replaced.
As an aside I'm not sure which model you have but if it has batteries you should replace them (I don't think it does have batteries but not seen a model iv so I'm unsure)

The display went blank on my honeywell t8600c thermostat. when the batteries were changed, the display shows the time and -AC. Nothing else functions

I believe this thermostat will display -ac if it loses power from the furnace or air handler. Your thermostat will operate on low voltage(same as your door bell) and constantly powers your thermostat. I would check your furnace breaker, and fuses to see if there is power to the equipment

Honeywell ac thermostat not working

The replacement batteries may be no good or may have been installed with the wrong polarity. Also, if your Honeywell thermostat latches into a wall mount, you may have reinstalled it incorrectly. I speak from experience

I have the T8775 model and the display went blank last night. Now the A/C is not coming on. Any suggestions on what I can do to fix it or what happened to it?

It is possible the batteries are dead in the t-stat.
If batteries are good check the power to the air handler.
If power is good the air handler transformer may be bad.(high voltage in and low voltage out)
If transformer is good check all low voltage thermostat wires especially red and blue.

My honeywell ac panel went blank when i turn the heat on and the heat don"t start , the ac works fine

I would check a couple things lets start with the thermostat itself remove from the wall mount and check to see if the red and white wires are attached. Does this thermostat take batteries? If so replace the batteries. If still no heat make a jumper and jump out the red and white wires this should turn your heat on and now means that it is a thermostat problem. Purchase a new one and pay attention to all of the wires and where they go.Good luck
