check to make sure the control lock light isn't on. If it is, just press and hold the control lock button for 5 seconds to unlock the controls. If it still just beeps at you 3 times when you press the power button and nothing comes on the display, you have a bad interface control obard and you will need to replace the interface control board. You can also try to unplug the unit for 60 seconds to see if it will reset. If not, then replace the control board.
