Hi I am sorry to hear that. This is a bad connection or electrolytic capacitor inside the radios display driver circuit.
This can be repaired by a car audio shop. Unfortunately specialized electronic test equipment is required to locate the source of the trouble.
A local car audio technician can fix this problem for you but he will need to remove the radio to do so as the trouble is internal.
I will stick with you until your unit is working correctly, You can always get in touch with me if you need further assistance after rating.
Please rate my service kindly thus far, and thank you!
Have a great day!
