Okay, so does anybody know what it means when the display on your radio flashes on and off? Its been happening on and off recently and it seems to flash faster every time.

Thanks in advance.

No it stays on, just the display flashes. I mean sometimes it turns off but that's only because the locking mechanism for the removable buttons has worn down over the years. But the flashing display is new.

yeah sounds like the backlight is either shorting out, or about ready to go out...just a guess though.

the display screen could just short out and not work or the whole radio could short out

Does it turn completely turn off, like a blank screen and then come back on? At least that's what mine does...

I have a dealer appointment on Thursday to fix a few recall items, hopefuly this will be solved then.

yeah the display turns completely off and the comes back on, but the radio stays on the whole time. and now today when i was driving the radio seemed to freeze. the display wouldn't change when i hit and button including the off switch. i had to pull the number thingy to get it to work right again
