This is a common problem in these. Unfortunately the part is no longer available from Acura. What happens is the ribbon cable between the screen and the DVD base in the roof is broken. A local stereo shop might be able to make you a new one Or you can try to find a used one and switch it out . Another option is to send it to this place they can repair them but you have to ship it to them . Sorry for the bad news but i'm just being honest with you. If the fuse was bad there would be no sound.
