My Rodgers digital display thermostat does not display

My White Rodgers digital display...
My White Rodgers digital display thermostat does not display anything. The house is getting colder. The fan will turn on.
JA: Just to clarify, do you think this is a larger HVAC problem, or something specific to the thermostat?
Customer: I think it is thermostat specific. There is no display.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Yes, it is cold in Illinois tonight!
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: The thermostat has been loosey-goosey since we moved in last June. It moves around or jiggles a lot.

Is the thermostat battery powered?

I don't think so. I do not see any place for a battery.

Remove it from the base and check for any batteries you may have them on the back of the unit. See what you find and let me know, the front display head will pop off the base.
