Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

I'm Greg and will do my best to assist you today.

Sorry I didn't see your question earlier and to hear of any issue you are having with your device.

To help you with this issue, may I ask:

1) The FULL Model Name & Number of the device you are working with?

2) When was the device last used SUCCESSFULLY and how long was device allowed to sit without being charged (or connected to power)?

3) WHEN connecting the device to the vehicle power, does the screen come on "automatically" and settle on the MAIN screen?
