IDK, maybe try unplugging the unit to force a cold restart. Maybe it will come back to life, if not check out Ebay for a replacement. I purchased my RBZ from Ebay and so far so good.

I assume you did try to disconnect the battery to confirm that it isn't something electrical tied up?

Is it just the screen or the entire radio? I am pretty sure just the screen is repairable.

Keep an eye on ebay or the forum.. I see a lot of these going up for sale here and there. Good luck to you.

Thanks for the tip ARTH, I did take it in to the dealer for a diagnostic and was told the whole unit has to be replaced, although the radio still works, so if the screen only can be repaired or replaced better for me. It is a warranty issue but because I imported it to Canada the warranty is void, both US and Canada.
