Unable to power off at the thermostats after power outage.

Customer Question
Unable to power off...

Unable to power off at the thermostats after power outage. It is blank.

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, do you think this is a larger HVAC problem, or something specific to the thermostat?

There was a power outage and the unit stopped working. I have another unit, not Goodman, that started up after 30 min. By shutting it off at the termmostate and the panel.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Yes. How do I get the termmostate to show we something on the termmostate screen, it is currently blank, so I can shut off the unit both at the termmostate and the electrical panel.
