Hello. My name is***** can help you with your question this would be a problem with the levels the CD screen on the panel. If it lights up completely meaning blocks where every character would be, then it is getting power but the circuits that determine what is displayed are not functioning. The way to correct this is going to be replacing that LCD screen. This is something you will be doing yourself, or is it under warranty, or would you have a pool place do it. The reason I ask is that I can at least provide you guidance with what it should cost in any case or whether you can actually just send it back and have it replaced.
